My final word on the Super Typhoon that wasn't and the most irritating press cliche in the world
I will never get an apology from a certain member of our family who absolutely believes everything that the TV / Newspapers say and bought tape to put on our windows... I have never had to put tape on windows in all the time I have lived in Hong Kong.. it just goes to show how bad reporting can create a panic... oh, the tape was put in a drawer and nothing happened.
If you are around Tung Choi Street and Sai Yeung Choi Street in Mongkok on a Saturday and Sunday in the afternoon you are in for a real treat.. I am always amazed at how busy this area is ( one block from the Ladies Market ) and the street scenes are absolutely amazing.
A lot of companies set up stall, some famous, many obscure to sell their wares and naturally young ladies are hired off to show the products off to their best advantage (this is a double pun by the way) and it is easy to locate the "best" girls, just watch for the mob of photographers.
I am note sure at all if this is the press or not, to me it looks like a bunch of enthusiastic amateur photographers in nirvana and the girls are professional, they really do know how to play the crowd.
Anyway, it is worth a trip out there to witness this weekend spectacle.

Enjoy the images.
It is a cliche used by the press all around the world
"Fears grow"Just exactly who is having these fears? do they have a room full of people who vote on the "fear" factor of a particular story.
Here is just one meaning from an online dictionary for the word fear.
a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.
It just does not seem to apply to many scenario's played out in the press.
You would never get any information from the press about who these fearful people are as they would simply cite "confidential sources"!
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.
