Say hello to my friend Lindsay Varty, author of the most beautiful, unique new book about Hong Kong! It’s called Sunset Survivors, and it’s all about the traditional tradesmen and women of Hong Kong who are disappearing fast, from fortune telling to face threading and letter writing to bird cage making! It’s a book that everybody who loves Hong Kong should definitely have on their bookshelves, so make sure to tell Mum and Dad all about it! You can hear Lindsay talking all about her new book here.

Pigs Rule in Aberdeen, Hong Kong!

Now we all know it’s the Year of the Pig, and here’s proof if any were needed! Here are two beautiful wild boar I snapped yesterday as I drove by, casually strolling down the street in Aberdeen on Hong Kong Island! I think the one on the left was Mama Pig, and the one on the right was Teen Pig. They were both looking rather sheepish I have to admit…or should that be piggish? Either way, they didn’t seem in the least afraid, or fazed by the passing traffic!
