This is NOT a soup ladle for scooping out deep dykes!

A cupping victim bears his "wounds" for everyone to see, another arty farty view from the Peak and Hello Bloody Kitty is back (again).....

I have just recovered from watching the You Tube video of Jim Davidson, an English comic having an "expert" on his show talking about deep dykes. 

Seeing the "soap ladle" above set me off - the joke is simply the more modern meaning of dyke. 

Whenever I watch this video I am in tears, it is the funniest thing I have ever seen.

I came across this chap in Wanchai Market selling fruit, a cupping victim, I can never understand how one subjects oneself to this form of torture and those marks take weeks to fade. I have to say that this chap was very popular with the ladies who seemed fascinated by these markings.

 Lovely

I simply do not get it, why are Hong Kong people so obsessed with Hello Bloody Kitty? well I console myself that at least it isn't the bloody smurfs! 

 Say hello to my little spider.................

This Golden Orb Spider was absolutely ginormous, the biggest I have ever seen, enough to give anyone the creeps. 

 Nice shop, not many clients

Located on Chater Road,  the Bvlgari shop is jolly nice and they spent an absolute fortune on it, pity it does not get many clients.

I am lucky enough to live next to the shipping channel so we get all the monster container ships sailing past every day... I am not anorak enough to dig deeper and start making notes on these leviathans.

The lines for the Peak Tram get longer and longer by the day.

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.
