Climbing For Buns

This year's Cheung Chau bun festival has a record number of female entrants all eager to be the first to the top of the bun towers. The dash up a 15 meter tall tower covered in lucky Chinese buns is a century-old folk custom for the former pirate enclave of Cheung Chau.”

“Plastic lucky buns will cover the entire bamboo structure for the final event, and competitors must grab as many of them as they can within three minutes. Buns located at the top of the tower are worth nine points, while the ones near the bottom are only worth one.”
