Hong Kong: cultural hub

It seems Hong Kong has finally become a hotspot for international artists. Over the last fortnight, we've played host to J-rock heavyweight X-Japan, mastermind of Talking Heads David Byrne and Scottish post-rock giants Mogwai.

Duffy ready to take it easy

Domestics make so many sacrifices

I read with interest the article on Father Dwight Delatorre (South China Morning Post, October 25) and his work with the Mission for Filipino Migrant Workers.

II freed to save her dying mother

AN emotional plea by an illegal immigrant to be set free so she could donate her kidney to her dying mother won over an appeal court judge yesterday.
