'I feel kind of suffocated'

Boris Chu, runner at the Jockey's Club's racetrack in Happy Valley

Aid agency returns, keen to hear from those it helped

There was a time when Hong Kong wasn't such a prosperous place. From 1959 to 1971, the global aid agency Plan International - working then as Foster Parents Plan - was here to help poor refugees from the mainland adjust to a new life, providing food and shelter to those in need and education to children. This summer, the organisation is returning.

Hong Kong Nipponphiles who stock up on the latest Japanese magazines and novels at the Sogo bookshop know they can't avoid the mad scramble to the top floor of the mall on weekends.
