The female chauffeur and her rich employer, the Macau Helicopter and picking your nose in public.
Quite a lot of my clients have asked me what is the significance of the "sign" on top of the building in image 2 and to be honest I hadn't a clue.. I knew the building was not a Church so I assumed it was simply an architectural feature.
Today I decided to find out one way or another so I made a trek to the building (well not really a trek as it is in the Central business district!) and without realising it, there was a big clue in the name of the building - Club Lusitano.
A bit of checking revealed that this building is very significant to many Portuguese people that live in Hong Kong and that is when I had a the light bulb moment - I remembered that I had actually seen this "cross" in St. Michaels Catholic Cemetery in Happy Valley a few weeks back (which is full of Portuguese graves) - I believe the cross is the Order of Christ cross which is very significant to Portuguese people.
So there you go, now I can talk with a bit of authority on this subject.
...including a female chauffeur / bodyguard... I bet she can kill you with her fingernail... I can't say I have seen a female chauffeur before but she had, had great training and her young employer was quite prim and proper.. nice to see such lovely manners.
I was very happy to finally get some shots of the Macau Helicopter... I got the shots whilst sat on the upper deck of the Cheung Chau slow ferry and a glorious summer's day certainly helped with image quality.
A single person pays roughly US$500 for a one way trip so it is not cheap but it does only take 15 minutes and time is a precious commodity to whales.

The chap in blue spent 2 minutes doing a spot of nasal drilling whilst waiting for a taxi - he then wiped it on his shirt.
I had a client stay here for a week and she raved about it... what more could you ask for... Fortress Hill or Tin Hau MTR Stations are within a 10 minute walk.
This is where Vietnamese Boat People were held when they arrived in Hong Kong - this facility has been closed for some time.
One of these days I will see if I can get an invite to the Lighthouse... it looks jolly nice.
A not so great attempt at macro photography.
Well at least we know it doesn't sell pastries.
Perhaps an Irishman with a sense of humour.
