On coffee runs to Starbucks, I take a detour and walk by this estate. I was rather tickled by the things hanging off this overhead cable for dunno-what-street-lighting-perhaps. The residents in this estate have cleverly made full use of the available space and hang large hooks off the cable. On the weekdays when it isn't raining, clothes and underwear hang off it. Quite a common sight.
Over the weekend, I did a usual run, stopped dead in my tracks and laughed till I doubled over. With images of clothes fresh in my mind, I did a double take. Slabs of meat, presumably pork, swing gently in the cold wind and seem none the worse for wear. I've no idea why this is done. Do people cure meat in the cold? Or do they simply use the big wide outdoors as a natural refrigerator? The pieces of meat are quite big and might not fit into a small home chiller. It doesn't seem likely that industrial chillers are installed in most flats.
From what the friends say, this is quite the usual sight during January. It's entirely plausible that whichever unit the meat belongs to, is meant to be cooked for guests during Chinese New Year.
