Amazing baby race

I have been scouring the city for things for Little Miss Ha Gaau. Being in the final league of my pregnancy, I found my self wishing I was back home, where huge malls serve as one-stop shops for everything I need. The closest thing I got here is the Kid’s Wear and Maternity section in Harbour City. If you are into Armani Junior, Baby Dior, Burberry Kids, DKNY Kids, Fendi Kids, Gucci Kids, Ralph Lauren Childrenswear and Tommy Hilfiger Childrenswear, then you will definitely find everything here. I specifically go here for 0/3 baby and Babies R Us for Peg Perego and Graco products, respectively. For most other items, I have been dragging Mr. Diplomat to each of the following shops for the past couple of Fridays. Each shop is located in a different building or district, a fact of life we have come to accept in Hong Kong.
