11 is a lucky number for Chinese (and Japanese) people. So if the date 11.11.11 is lucky then the time 11:11:11 on that day must be the pinnacle of luck ! (But how fleeting it is, lasting for all of one second). There was a wedding on at the Sheraton Hotel where we had our Friday night hamburgers and beers. Hey, I am sure there were many weddings in China on Friday! The rest of the pictures are from NHK (Japan) television and speak for themselves. P.S. Perhaps the girls with the 1’s were inspired by those in Robert Palmer’s 1989 hit single (and music video) ‘Simply Irresistible’?
