The curious case of the white beggar in Hong Kong

Why do women poke and prod meat on sale in the wet markets? what is it with kids and water? and the amazing chocolate creation in the Peninsula Hotel.

The guy in the red shirt is a beggar, I have seen him now for 3 weeks, most people ignore him! I do not know what his story is but I doubt he will ever make a lot of money begging here - yesterday I saw him with his wife / girlfriend coming out of City Super one of our finer supermarkets!

I often observe ladies in our wet markets poking and prodding meat, I have no idea what that tells them.. pretty darn yucky if you ask me!

This impressive water feature at Tung Chung next to the outlet mall is a magnet for kids and a nightmare for parents.

Chocolate creations have become very popular here, this one is near the reception desk at the Peninsula Hotel in TST, Kowloon.

I do private 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 38 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.

All images taken with a Sony RX 1r camera - it produces amazing images!
