With Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year falling in the same weekend this year, Stanley Plaza is collaborating with the hip local brand G.O.D. for the first time to present a campaign revolving around caang toi goek (撐檯腳), a Cantonese slang term that translates roughly to “sharing an intimate meal.” From now to 28 March 2021, Stanley Plaza is featuring couples selfie installations where lovers can stare across a cosy dining table into each other's eyes while playing a flirtatious game of footsie.
This collaboration takes cues from classic Hong Kong film posters to transform Stanley Plaza and Murray House into a modern cha chaan teng (茶餐廳) and chic wine bar aglow with retro neon lights against a backdrop of iconic G.O.D. prints, where local lovers can find themselves in the “mood for love” in the midst of an evocative bistro or bar mise-en-scène.
In addition, during the campaign period, the “Lovey-Dovey Valentine's Day Market“ will be open during 14 to 15 February at Murray House, delighting lovers with handmade delicacies and goodies from local brands, including handmade candles from DeepMemory and clothing from ESORA. The market even features pet goods from Noah Pet Pet to showcase the pet-friendly policy at Stanley Plaza. As the icing on the cake, customers who spend a designated amount at Stanley Plaza during the campaign period using electronic payment methods can receive a personalised Valentine's Day water bottle and mug featuring iconic G.O.D. prints.
