Something new: the photos people forgot

A photo from the Collective Memory project, a collection of images from unclaimed rolls of film.

Sometimes it seems as though everyone knows Michael Leung - even the owner of a Kwun Tong dai pai dong, who chats amiably with the young designer as he sits down for lunch. "We made a 'zine about him," Leung says. "He's really proud of it."

Urban beehives are a sweet success

A snow-covered Scandinavian forest is an unlikely setting for a budding beekeeper to find his vocation, but after one taste of the honey from his Swedish friend's hive, Hong Kong-based interior designer Michael Leung knew he was on to something good.

Audiences need to respect speakers

On April 7, some of my classmates and I attended Michael Leung's talk at SMKMCF Ma Ko Pan Memorial College.

Leung is a well-known DJ who worked at RTHK for a long time. Students from many different schools arrived for the talk and were very excited about it.

Beekeeper creates a real buzz for prison design date

They may have been in prison, but the curators and 20-plus participating designers of deTour 2010 pleaded the theme of 'not guilty' at the events' opening at Victoria Prison on Friday.

'We're not quite Milan yet as a mega-hub for design,' says Alan Lo, chairman of Ambassadors of Design, which organised the two-week programme. 'But give us a few more years.'

Three years ample time to study

I refer to Michael Leung's letter headlined, 'Next crisis will need different class of graduate' (South China Morning Post, July 20).

Mr Leung criticises the three-year university system in Hong Kong, modelled on the English system, for not equipping its graduates with vocational skills for finding jobs.

Curb these bad elements

I AM concerned about the behaviour of taxi drivers.

Earlier this month, I went to the airport to pick up a friend.

We boarded a taxi and it drew away, but after we had told the driver our destination, he stopped and tried to persuade us to get another cab.

He claimed that our journey was too short a distance. However, we refused to get out.
