The McLaren sports car in Hong Kong - up close & personal

The somewhat bizarre (but amusing) Indonesian Helpers, Policemen going about their business on a Sunday morning and getting moved along at the Liaison Office Building.

I had another ethereal experience, getting up close and personal with this truly magnificent sports car.  

McLaren is currently at the top of the wish list for gajllionaires and the like and with good reason.. it has the wow factor and for me it is a thrill just to touch it and admire a piece of pure perfection.

Huzzah for McLaren.

We have about 160,000 Indonesian Helpers in Hong Kong (out of a total of about 325,000) and I have to say that some of them go just a tad wild when they come to Hong Kong or as I am fond of saying they have gone to the dark side.

I find it hard to believe that these girls are probably devout Muslims in Indonesia. 

Just another fascinating facet of Hong Kong life.

Form your own opinion about these young chaps being asked for proof of identity, wrong place, wrong time.

I was with clients yesterday in Western District and we found ourselves outside the Liaison Office building... a few pictures later we found ourselves being moved along by 2 Policemen who seemed a bit bemused as to why we were having a discussion outside this building.

 The most famous shopping street in Hong Kong

It is not often you see Canton Road quite as empty as this image shows.. 9.30am on a Sunday morning just before all hell breaks loose. 

 Love it

This just about sums up Hong Kong and the attitude of people here.

I do personal walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 37 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.

Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....

I am available at very short notice, I get many last minute bookings and may well be available even if you arrive in Hong Kong without making plans! so please check my calendar, if it says I am free then I am available to do a tour!! Simply send me a message for a prompt reply

...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
