Hong Kong 12 Days of Christmas

Why is it that every Christmas carol is set in a cold place? Why did nobody ever write carols for tropical places?

Here is my lame attempt at a re-write of a favorite Christmas carol from not only a tropical but Hong Kong perspective

Two soy sauce chickens and a pirated CD
