Do you know Jimmy Liao?

Coco Chung, 19

Top tunes: Pop

I haven't read many books by Jimmy. I read many picture books, because I like the drawings. Books with good illustrations are better because they're more enchanting and meaningful. I like cute or funny pictures because they make me happy. This exhibition is a very good idea because I'm an art student myself.

About one in eight children in Tsing Yi say they have been left home alone overnight at least once, according to a survey released yesterday by a welfare group.

This week: Do you have a pet?

Yan Lee, 12

Top tunes: Pop

I don't have a pet as my parents don't allow me to keep one. But I'd like to have a dog. I won't buy exotic pets, such as snakes or frogs. I'm afraid of them. I don't know anyone who keeps such strange pets. I guess there are very few people who raise amphibians or reptiles in Hong Kong.
