Raising Pigs on Cheung Chau Island - sounds like fun

Had a conversation with Frank the talking pug in Stanley, 10.20am on Nathan Road in TST, Kowloon and a tattoo that wasn't the famous Metroplis Poster of the Fritz Lang movie.

 Now I know where to go if I want to raise pigs on Cheung Chau

I love Cheung Chau Island and I am thinking of retiring there at some stage to raise pigs now that I know where to go for advice. 

 I met and talked with Frank the pug

As you all know, Frank the Pug from the Men in Black movie is really an alien so when I bumped into him yesterday in Stanley I had a conversation with him, when I asked him how he was doing I swear I saw his lips move. Frank the Pug is real and he lives in Stanley on the south side of Hong Kong Island. 

 Well at least it's not Chow Tai Fook

10.20am on a Saturday morning on Nathan Road in TST, Kowloon and 15 Mainland Chinese Tourists march into this jewellery store. simply mind boggling. 

 Nice Tattoo

Sometimes I can be a bit thick,.. ( or I need new glasses ) I actually thought this was the character from the famous Metropolis Movie by Fritz Lang, it never occurred to me that it was what's is face from Star Wars. Duh!

Yet another classy number plate. 

 It's getting real busy on the MTR all day now

Admiralty Station, 11.30am and it is packed - at least the MTR recognises that overcrowding is becoming an issue and is working on a solution. 

 Not the greatest bus tour in the world

Not the greatest bus tour in the world

It is cheap, I will give it that, but I think the big issue for most people is that the design of the bus is mildly embarrassing and cheesy, another problem is the drivers... make your own mind up

 Love these old buildings

One of the things I love about Nathan Road are these huge monsterous 1960's buildings, there are dozens of them, they can be pretty colourful and they have character in spades. This one is at the junction of Nathan Road and Jordan Road

 The back end of nowhere

One of these days I will spend the day in Yuen Long, one thing I did notice on the MTR West Rail Line heading to Yuen Long, is you can clearly see Shenzhen in China, just over the border from Hong Kong.. one of these days. 


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.
