Evening street view along Hennessey Road at the junction of Canal Road West in Wanchai. The colourful neon signs are something that you don’t get to see in Singapore. Same goes for the electric cables dangling overhead for the trams. Photos taken last year in early December, several days before I left Hong Kong. Help… Read More »

According to sources (as usual, unnamed), the air stewardess involved in the recent Cathay Pacific airborne sex scandal has either resigned or been dismissed. No big surprise here. Only thing is, the pilot on… Read More »
The district councillor in my area sends updates of her work to residents on a regular basis. Below are the sample pages from the 2010-11 Work Report that I received through snail mail today.
