You May Remember,

that some time ago we featured a huge yellow rubber duck,

 in our first post it was floating down the Thames, in the second it had made it to Hong Kong,

but there it now appears to have taken a rest, it's ego and body deflated as it sits now forlornly in Hong Kong harbour, since 2007 the duck has travelled to 13 different cities in nine countries ranging from Brazil to Australia in its journey around the world, but all is not lost it appears that this is maintenance work,

organisers said that the duck had been deflated on Tuesday evening as part of scheduled maintenance work and that it would be towed to a shipyard on Wednesday for thorough checking, 'We scheduled a body check for these two days, if everything is fine we can inflate it as soon as possible and the public can appreciate it again,' said Andrew Yeung, advertising and promotions manager for waterfront shopping mall Harbour City, which is organising the duck exhibit, I will refrain from any Peking duck and where are all the pancakes, plum sauce, cucumber and sliced onion jokes!
