Tired of all the unoriginal scents that seem to be in every candle store in town? Well say goodbye to lavender, pumpkin spice and vanilla. Local candle shop Wax can is on a mission to capture the authentic smells of Hong Kong – from their Tuen Mun Pier candle to stranger ones like Dad’s Smelly Sock. But be careful of their foul smells, as they could be better as prank gifts.

Other popular candles from the brand include School Picnic in Fall and Rainy Camping Day. Some might wake up nostalgia – Vintage Lift and Classic Barber Shop. The store also released two Christmas-themed candles – Santa’s Snack and Santa’s Sock.

While the 20 cent coins seem worthless today, two local designers, Oscar Yeung and Tim Yeung, transform them into bracelets, necklaces, rings and even watches.

Oscar got the idea thanks to his lucky cat piggy bank. His family collected all kinds of coins, and he decided to put them to good use by turning them into artistic trinkets. You can also choose the coin year for your coin.
