Hong Kong: My Favourite Places to Eat

Confession. I’ve been putting off the idea to write about Hong Kong for the longest time now. I first made a visit to this global Chinatown just about this time last year. I can vividly recall how the city folks were slowly gearing back into their routine after a long break over the Chinese New…

Pierre, Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong: Our Grand Finale

I was out on a walk in Chinatown last weekend and noticed a peculiar sign at the back of the flower market. It read: “Please leave all your personal problems behind when you leave home for work.” What a very odd place for such a sign, I thought. I could have sworn that it was…

A Page from My Shanghai Diary: The Wandernut Trails
