Another one bites the dust

I’m talking about shops in Causeway Bay, where I live.

Hi, there, 9J here.

Anita Maria needs to buy a gift for a friend who’s getting married, so we went to a trusted old favorite, G.O.D.

The consolation is, there will still be G.O.D. shops around, we just need to go further afield.
