Picnic Perfect

With typhoon season hopefully behind us and the promise of cooler days to come, there is no better time to pack a picnic basket, stock up on some pretty utensils and unbreakable crockery, fold a blanket and get out and have a meal surrounded by nature. Local retailers have plenty of offerings.

school news

CCC Kei Yuen College

October 19 was our school's Picnic Day. There had been a lot of discussion about where this year's picnic should be held. Some students wanted to go to Ocean Park, while others thought Disneyland would be the ideal place.

In the end, we decided to have a barbecue at Kam Tin Country Club.

Language point

Two million people gathered in the streets of Rome ... celebrating the Italian capital's second annual all-night cultural extravaganza.

Barbecue sets stage for a swinging time at the park

A group of students from Man Kiu College went on a picnic earlier this year and had a great time. Here are two accounts of their outing.

Closing the door on tomb picnics

A picnic at one of the ruined Ming tombs has for so long been the most endearing pleasure of expatriate life in Beijing, that it is sad to record its passing.

In the past few weeks the authorities have been putting up steel fences around the entrances and at some of the tombs workmen are busy repairing the crumbling red walls.

Appalled by refuse blight

Being nature lovers, and always looking to discover new trails on Hong Kong Island and in the New Territories, we applaud the Hong Kong Government for having created such a variety of trails and accurate maps leading to them.
