Photo of the Week #11: No Photo!

If I see this sign one more time when I'm out taking photos in Hong Kong, I fear something unsavoury could very well occur. They were at it again the other night down at the tourist trap that is Temple Street: "Hey, no photo'; "Sir, no photo"; "You stop take photo now." ...

DCHL vs the Mainland: Round 2

There were more fun and games outside the Digital Crown Holdings HK (DCHL) offices in Causeway Bay yesterday.

Know Your Gods: Guanyin

Is she a he or a she? Or does he just look like a she? Or perhaps she was always a she and never a he in the first place; it's sometimes hard to tell.

Hong Kong Street Food Stalls

For some, the coming together of the words street and food is the gourmet equivalent of pairing car with crash, or drive-by with shooting - it shouldn't happen, it mustn't happen, but on street corners around the world, for reasons beyond our control, it does happen, and all too often too. Indeed, the very concept ...

Hong Kong Vanity Plates: Series 7

It's been a while, but after the short, sharp waste of twenty minutes that was The Hong Kong Vanity Plate Challenge, we're back to rather less obsessive matters this time around. Though I admit my radar has been a little lacking of late, my Hong Kong wanderings are still turning up the usual licence plate lunacy ...
