One image that shows why you shouldn't buy Jade in Hong Kong

Promoting Emergency Services in Hong Kong with stupid cartoons, our Chief Executive on his way to work and a scary but non life threatening stick insect at the Peak.

So, the prices are in HK$ so divide by 7.75 to get the US$ equivalent - this is Jade in Chow Tai Fook the biggest jewellery company in the world and just about on every street corner in Hong Kong. in a nutshell, Jade is expensive and pricing is somewhat arbitrary, ie take a price and add 750% profit and see if someone is daft enough to buy it... for the record, any product in this picture without a price is over HK$2 million!!

I am guessing that the morons that came up with this "propaganda" on the Ambulance work for the Information Services Department of the Hong Kong Government, as a responsible adult I am sick to death of our Government promoting stuff using stupid cartoons which in this case make a mockery of a very important message. I rather think that this particular moron has the IQ of an amoeba.... oh and now I will tell you what I really think.

.... and talking of morons... many Hong Konger's think that our esteemed leader and Chief Executive C.Y. Leung is a moron - I disagree, I think he is pretty decent guy doing a very difficult job, he is quite dignified and I rather like him.

This is Mr. Leung in his rather staid Lexus (love the badge) going to work.

Bodyguard in the front, C.Y. Leung in the back - not a bad way to travel to work.

One of my more creative shots, normally I can't be bothered kneeling down but by golly it is an interesting creature and quite scary.

My first clients from Egypt - meet Salma and Ahmed enjoying the lovely view from my spot at the Peak.

A somewhat unconventional image of the Island Shangri - La Hotel and the Hotel Conrad located at Admiralty on Hong Kong Island, quite magnificent buildings.


I do private 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 38 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.

All images taken with a Sony RX 1r camera - it produces amazing images!
