It is reported in Hong Kong, the government expects 5% more births in 2012, compared with 2011. The sales of infant formula milk, nappies prams, and other baby products are expected to do better business this year.  Animal rescuers are happy too because the dragon doesn’t exist; is just a mythical creature.
