|The Five “Bah-pau” Rabbits in Three Delightful Moon-Gazing Scenes|
|Location: Outside Three Pacific Place on Wing Fung Street|| “Lunar Peace and Serenity”
“Star Rabbit” (星兔), the new character exclusive to Starstreet Precinct, is cuddling a bright star and sitting beside a huge, illuminated moon, giving the whole scene a golden glow of contentment.
Take a photo with Star Rabbit for a highly Instagrammable snapshot and a gorgeous moment of serenity. Sometimes just gazing at the moon and stars is all you need for an experience of profound peace!
|Location: Outside Three Pacific Place on Wing Fung Street|| “Don’t Look at Me, Look Up”
An ethereal light scene festooned with dozens of coloured LED globes and shiny star-shaped ornaments is forming a glowing canopy for a restful Mid-Autumn stroll.
Bathed in this spectacular lighting, the “Rabbit Pointing at the Sky” (指天兔) (left) and “Rabbit Watching the Moon” (望月兔) (right) seem to speak in unison: “Don’t look at me, look at the moon and stars! They’re so bright and beautiful!”
|Location: Outside Three Pacific Place on Star Street|| “The Idle Chatterers”
As you walk up the slope to Star Street, another gorgeous LED light canopy awaits, with an illuminated full moon dangling in the middle.
As you get closer, you’ll discover “Rabbit Pulling a Face” (鬼臉兔) (left) and “Rabbit Unwilling to Go to Work” (不想上班兔) (right), both of whom are sitting together in such a laid-back posture, it’s obvious what they’re saying: “Why can’t we be as free as the moon? I don’t want to go to work tomorrow.” “Me neither.”
