Repulse Bay beach could be better. Photo: Martin Chan

I would like to make some observations about Hong Kong's premier beach, Repulse Bay, although they may equally apply to all gazetted beaches. Repulse Bay is a mecca for tourists, a place for the people of Hong Kong to soothe away the vicissitudes of urban living and an attraction that our Tourism Board puts near the top of its list.

Another TV hurdle for English speakers

English-speaking Olympics fans in Hong Kong are furious after finding that most of the coverage on iCable is in Cantonese.

The paid-for channel originally held the exclusive right to broadcast the Games, and reached an agreement with free-to-air TVB and ATV only last week to allow them to screen 200 hours of events.

The Sevens were described by TVB Pearl's 7.30pm news programme on Sunday as Hong Kong's greatest sporting event, so why did the channel fail to feature a single image of the competition in its 30th year?
