Another random queue pops up on Mody Road in TST, Kowloon

A pile of sand in the street, up close and personal at the Masterpiece / K11 Building and afternoon tea at the SkyMarriott Hotel - I don't think so....

One of life's little mysteries, 10.30am on Saturday morning and a queue of around 200+ people lined up at the junction of Mody Road and Nathan Road. I did not have time to investigate but this is the second time I have seen this queue in 2 weeks - I do not care to speculate on what is so compelling that you would queue like this but if I see the queue again I will investigate

 Yes, it's a pile of sand

One of my more utterly pointless images, a random pile of sand in the road and no clue as to why it was there. 

 The Masterpiece apartments

I have to say that if someone else paid the rent I could live in this apartment block, ideally located on Mody Road in TST (actually it straddles 3 roads!) it is super convenient and has, I imagine some very nice views.... 

 Not quite as good as the Peninsula Hotel High Tea

Not quite as good as the Peninsula Hotel High Tea

I have seen what's on offer for afternoon tea and it looks good and the price is very reasonable but honestly it is not a patch on tea at the Peninsula Hotel and then there is the small matter of the Hotel's location which is past the Airport! 

 An absolutely gorgeous Porsche

An absolutely gorgeous Porsche

I am a big, big fan of Porsche - in particular the Porsche 911 Turbo and the GT3, they are very popular in Hong Kong despite our somewhat crowded roads and yes, we do have some long straight roads if you know where to look.

 Shoes

Shoes

As seen in Elements Shopping Mall in ICC, Kowloon West and at a guess it was some sort of promotion for shoes (it was not obvious!) 

 Hanging out your washing

Here's an image you do not want swirling around in your mind, my underwear flapping in the wind!  Cheung Chau Island is a good place to get these sorts of images.

 The Space Museum Hong Kong

The Space Museum Hong Kong

Generally I do not cover Museums on my tours as you can easily do these on your own and they are perfect for rainy days.. the Space Museum is pretty decent and is located over the road from the Peninsula Hotel in TST, Kowloon

There is only one reason you would find yourself at Sunny Bay for - Disneyland! 


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.
