FELICIA Wong Leung Kam-shan, the highest ranking female officer in the 151-year history of Hong Kong policing, has always aspired to the top.

Allan ready for slice of big market

ALLAN International moved out of the kitchen last June to start making hair dryers and curling tongs.

Seaside villa with panoramic views

THE temperature drops a couple of degrees as you walk from the back of this seaside villa to the front, where a cooling breeze freshens the air.

Spacious home has air of class

CHUNG Hom Kok Road is the kind of street that people drive along slowly, appreciating the peace of this tree-shaded route, which winds its way down to the nearby beach.
