A very old lady gets a ticket from a traffic cop, more of Temple Street by day and a Golden Orb spider catches a butterfly.
I surmise that the driver (sans horns) of this crappy car had no idea of the significance of these numbers, for him it suggests easy life, for us a rather beastly person... pity as well that this plate is not on a souped up Lamborghini.
This Traffic Cop was giving this little old lady a ticket for something ( I walked past them and saw the ticket book) I am not sure what for but whatever it was he could have shown just a smidgen of compassion... a couple of people passing by gave the copper an earful which he simply ignored.
The Yaumatei end of Temple Street in the early morning is quite a fascinating place to explore.
A butterfly meets a sticky end on the giant web of the giant Golden Orb spider.. I admit I am now totally fascinated by these amazing creatures.. incidentally the red blob at the arse end of the spider is where the sticky "silk" comes out to make these huge webs.
Yesterday was the first blue sky I had seen in 12 days!
South side of the Peak on Lugard Road, looks rather lovely after a spot of rain
I am guessing that this is the luckiest turtle at the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple - it is certainly the first time I have seen it, huge body but a very small circular shell and it was quite aggressive as well... I bounced a small coin off it for luck.. then it gave me a filthy look so I scarpered.
It looks like a prop from a horror movie... and it was just lying on the ground. yuk.
When you come to Hong Kong you simply must ride one of our iconic trams which serve Hong Kong Island only.
The Hong Kong Cemetery at Happy Valley
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.
