Duddell Street

Huge destruction of government records continues

Police swinging into action.

It is with some regret that we feel obliged to take issue with our chief secretary, the admirable Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, over her written reply yesterday on the vexed question of Hong Kong's public records.

On style, she rules

Would you know where to get foldable shoes/flats in Hong Kong? Heels are a must for my work but I hate walking in them on the way home or to the MTR. They're fairly common in the United States but I haven't found any affordable options here. Do you know anywhere that sells them at a reasonable price? Please don't suggest carrying a bulky FitFlop in my small purse.

apm Monaco ups the glam on Duddell Street

So many people turned up for jeweller apm Monaco's store opening on Duddell Street, Central, that some had to wait outside before getting a chance to check out the glittering fare.

The brand's art director, Kika Prette, came to town for the opening of its first store in Asia and to mingle with the more than 100 guests.
