The long deflated night of the Hong Kong rubber duckie is over. Sayeth the Straits Times:

“I thought that once it got deflated, it wouldn’t come back again. So now I see that it is back, I am very happy,” said Ms Bonibelle Lee, 28, who was carrying a 3-D duck tote bag with matching yellow rain boots.
