Gesture politics gets Hong Kong nowhere

Politics in Hong Kong has become depressing just when a new administration needs all the support it can muster for doing what is right, and all the constructive opposition when it is not.

Santa Claus and the beach may seem an unlikely combination, but put together they made a day of fun games that raised funds for the underprivileged.

Operation Santa Claus' 25th anniversary special event, "Santa on the Beach", was held at Repulse Bay Beach yesterday.

Topless sunbathers' offensive behaviour

On Easter Monday, as it was a school holiday, I went to Repulse Bay beach with my children.

I saw two Caucasian women sunbathing topless. That didn't bother me much. I was, however, very offended when the two women started walking around the beach with their tops still off. They were standing near many children on what is a public beach.

Treat each beach like your home

I GET very frustrated when I think about the pollution that is destroying our beaches, which used to be very beautiful. I see this pollution in many beaches and those who overlook it, do so, because they are selfish.

Features start from the top and go down at Repulse Bay

FINDING the front door of a house is actually at roof level with the rest of it unfolding downwards is a novel experience, especially in Hong Kong where buildings generally extend skywards.

The upside-down layout of 12 Belleview Gardens in this exceptionally private location is not the only unusual feature.
