I couldn't resist today's title. Sounds kind of like an exotic dish in a Chinese restaurant, or maybe a pro wrestler's stage name, or mysterious woman with a shadowy past.
It is none of those things, however. Just some pictures of the late December sunrise in Hong Kong, sent by Sam, who is traveling there with his college singing group during their winter break. His pictures were taken with an iphone from the top floor of the building where they spent their first four nights. The building was next to a mall where they sang three 45 minute sets three times a day for four days - so they had good exposure and tired voices.

Sam goes on to tell a bit more about their trip:
<<We sang some awesome concerts and explored a bunch for the first few days, and then yesterday morning we moved to this country club locker room, where we're currently staying -- it's a place we sang at earlier, and they offered us this space to stay in so we said why not? It's pretty wacky to be sleeping in a locker room, but there are pads and blankets and stuff, so it's pretty comfortable.
As far as adventures go, we've eaten some good traditional foods like dim sum and congee, gone out in the bar district, wandered around the Hong Kong Park, explored Nathan Road (AKA the Golden Mile), went on a bus, a train, and a cable car to visit the world's largest Buddha statue and a monastery, went on the Dragon's Back hike (with fantastic views), and swam in the South China Sea afterwards! It's been great, and I feel like I've seen (or will soon see) everything that I want to see, which is excellent.>>
