A modern, well-maintained bus must be one of the easiest vehicles to drive smoothly, and yet most bus drivers are either incapable of, or uninterested in, doing so. I do not like being thrown back into my seat every time the bus comes to a halt. I do not like being constantly thrown backwards and forwards as a driver stabs at and then releases the accelerator, which many do, even when driving on a level, uncongested road. These faults should be easily eliminated with a minimum of training and practice.

Wow! The US$15m Adastra comes home

It's taken eight years, but Antony Marden's nautical marvel finally made it home to Deep Water Bay last week.

The Hong Kong shipping magnate wanted to build a superyacht to sail around the world. English boat designer John Shuttleworth helped him build one that pushes the boundaries of boatbuilding - the 140-foot Adastra.

Officials unwilling to compromise over seats and eateries at city's beaches

The article ('Sun goes down early on beach food kiosks', November 28) implies that standardised furniture is being introduced due to noise complaints, but this is not the case. The Leisure and Cultural Services Department decided as policy to install its own furniture upon kiosk contract renewals, at St Stephen's in Stanley in 2009, with Shek O, Big Wave Bay and Deep Water Bay following suit.

Out and about

Forget the Peak - whatever the latest glossy property brochures would have one believe. For right-up-there residential status, the environs of Deep Water Bay, on Hong Kong Island's southern coast, are the city's own Millionaires Row. In a society where millionaires - real, self-proclaimed or anything in between - are a conspicuously common commodity, this brash label speaks for itself.

Banker sues law firm for HK$50m 'loss'

A banker is suing Boase Cohen & Collins law firm in the High Court for damages allegedly arising from the missing title deed of a Deep Water Bay house he sold for HK$50 million less than the peak price. Mark Chiba bought the house for HK$75 million and was offered HK$140 million in 2007, but the deal died due to the title problem. He sold it for HK$90 million this year.

Life of the wedding party

More than 60 couples from the Young Executives Group renewed their vows with a post-Valentine event at the Hong Kong Country Club at Deep Water Bay.

The tongue-in-cheek festivities featured each couple getting remarried and blessed by a priest in less than a minute, then enduring criticism from the fashion police who picked over their attire from head to toe.
