Hong Kong Tour | Creating an Edvard Munch painting | Four Seasons Hotel

I wouldn't mind doing a harbour "food" tour on this baby, poverty in Hong Kong - the official statistics and still no progress on the West Kowloon Cultural District

 This is the Four Seasons Hotel lobby

This is a real image and not the work of a fancy setting on my camera, I was in the Four Seasons Hotel lobby and reached into my bag to get the camera and in the midst of dropping the camera I pressed a bunch of buttons and this this the result which looks like something that Edvard Munch might have created (he of the Scream painting fame) 

I like it, it is a work of art and I have no hope of ever reproducing the moment. 

Bids start at US$1 Million (cash only please) 

 Now that's what I call a boat

Now that's what I call a boat

Harbour tours in Hong Kong are for the most part simply horrible, if I was suitably minted then I would absolutely love to take a harbour tour on this boat... fine food, fine wine in one of the world's great harbour's what's not to love. 

 The headline is a bit misleading

What the headline means to say is that 500,000 people in Hong Kong live on just US$460 per month and that has to cover everything. I have views on this subject which I share with clients and we will leave it at that. Read the article. 

 A complete shambles - the West Kowloon Cultural District

A complete shambles - the West Kowloon Cultural District

The land you see that is barren has been barren since 1998, it is the "proposed" home of the "new" West Kowloon Cultural District which has been in planning limbo for 15 years now, it is a complete and utter shambles and our Government should hang their heads in shame. 

 The South China Athletic Association

Iconic it maybe but this has to be one of the ugliest buildings in Hong Kong - located in Causeway Bay the SCAA is legendary - I bowled there (10 pin bowling) from 1984 - 1992 before "retiring" from the sport.

Despite what the Hotel says, it is NOT in a convenient location but hey who cares about trivial things like that. It is a pretty decent Hotel offering great value for money.. oh I forgot to mention it has the cheapest, most uncomfortable fabric lobby sofa's in Hong Kong - truly horrible

 nice number plate

The car owner's lurking in the background gave me the beady eye....

2 minutes from Soho in the mid levels, this old style noodle shop caters to the "in crowd.
