On style, she rules

Keep your hat on

The only time most people think I'm good-looking is when I'm wearing a Kangol cap. I lost my last one and I have no idea where to buy another. Any suggestions?

Dip in the harbour

I read with interest the article 'Harbour may be safe for swimming again' (South China Morning Post, February 19). I will cheer the day when it actually comes. I remember as a kid, I was able to see the sea bed from a ferry.

Bus clamp

LICENSED residents' service buses, which bring thousands of workers from the New Territories to Central and Causeway Bay, will face police action if they drop off at undesignated points from tomorrow.

The bar scene in Causeway Bay is alive - and kicking. And while much of the talk around town has been about the watering holes popping up along Yiu Wa Street, a little extra leg work will bring you a few pleasant surprises.

Crowded Causeway Bay

Causeway Bay is a flourishing place, especially at night.

One day, I went window shopping there. There were crowds of people and heavy traffic everywhere. The air was thick with pollution.

Big turn-off

Green groups hit the streets of Causeway Bay and Central on 'Earth Day' yesterday to campaign for cleaner air.

Friends of the Earth members and volunteers marched through Causeway Bay at lunchtime with banners and distributed leaflets to drivers asking them to 'stop idling engines' in a bid to reduce air pollution.

Air pollution reached very high levels in Causeway Bay. The reading of 105, recorded at the Causeway Bay roadside monitor, was the highest in the SAR yesterday. Elsewhere, the level ranged from 45 to 61.

Harbour baby

Smiling faces no eyesore

I refer to S. Yang's letter, 'Congestion eyesore for tourists' (South China Morning Post, June 26), and would like to point out that few Filipinas gather in Causeway Bay on Sundays.

The majority of the ladies who congregate there are Indonesian.
