Remembering what a sunny day harbour view looks like

Love is....applying suntan lotion, another glorious view from Peak Road and where the rich folk live in the Mid Levels on Hong Kong Island.

 

 It has been a while since we had a sunny day

I am sick to bloody death of our weather,  we are now on day 11 of muggy, hot, rainy weather with smog... just plain nasty and depressing does not adequately cover it.

Still, feast your eyes on this, this is a sunny day view of Hong Kong Island from Kowloon, magnificent. 

 How sweet

How sweet

40+ years of marriage (I assume!) and she can still rub on the old suntan lotion... lovely setting at Deep Water Bay

 Oh my

I have always wanted to live in Eva Court, the brown building to the right behind the road sign, 4,500sqft of luxury in a fairly decent location. 

One can dream. 

 Nice flamingo's

 Street touts - the most irritating people on the planet

Street touts - the most irritating people on the planet

On this tiny stretch of Nathan Road near the Holiday Inn Golden Mile Hotel in TST, Kowloon lurks 3 touts offering:-

  • dodgy suits
  • copy watches
  • copy handbags

I have counted 38 of them in a 4 block radius, they are all from Bangladesh and they only target white people! 

If they get someone to go to a shop / dodgy apartment they get HK$50, if a sale is made they get 2% of the total sale.

Horrible, horrible people who annoy everyone mainly because over a 100 yard stretch you can get accosted by 10 of them.

 But what does it mean?

A wannabe super hero?

As usual no tag or sign to indicate the species of plant / flower

Looks rather nice on a sunny day but has the worst lobby sofa's in the universe.

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.
