As life progresses, so does city's jewellery

It's no surprise that historian and jewellery designer Lo Kai-yin would be behind a new exhibition at Sha Tin's Hong Kong Heritage Museum chronicling the changing role of jewellery in Hong Kong.

For romantics only

Eighteen love songs sung by well-known singers makes Voices of Love the ultimate album for romantics.

Don't Know Why by Norah Jones and The Look of Love by Diana Krall are typical coffee shop jazz songs that are perfect for a study break.

Time to sing goodbye

With four English Schools Foundation alumni making it into the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens squad this year, the ESF has plenty of reason to celebrate. But their most audible - and certainly most lyrical - presence will be turning out on Sunday. A chorus of a thousand ESF primary school children will sing before the finals are played and an ESF music teacher will sing at the closing ceremony.

Nitin Sawhney Prophecy


Coming out of Britain with an eclectic mix of Indian vibes, smooth jazz, laid-back flamenco and searing drum 'n' bass, Nitin Sawhney never fails to impress with each seamlessly woven album.

More of the same from Jogador

EQUITRACK lover Jogador looked in fine shape as he yesterday went through a searching last gallop in readiness for the last meeting on the dirt in the history of Happy Valley racing.

Jogador had been very much of a disappointment before his owner Gabriel Dias Azedo switched him to the John Moore stable along with Cheguei for the start of this season.

Hill's patience looks to be paying off for Debonair

DEBONAIR looked a serious sprinter in the making when working impressively from the barriers at the top of the Sha Tin back straight yesterday morning.

Last season's unbeaten private purchase griffin moved in Rolls Royce fashion as he came through his mid-section with stablemate and first-season Irish import, Chater Sovereign, in a comfortable 24.0 seconds.

Allan to motor it with Ka Fook

IVAN Allan steps Ka Fook (Nap) up to 1,900 metres in the final event on tonight's Sha Tin card and that should prove a winning move.

And Allan, still an outside chance for the trainers' title, has also called for the blinkers for the first time, a move possibly suggested by the gelding's effort over a mile behind Iron Horse at his last outing.

Hutchison holds key to a double

KA Fook looks worth waiting for in the seventh event at Sha Tin this afternoon.

The Bruce Hutchison-trained four-year-old has put in two highly creditable efforts since returning from a gelding operation.

He has now been found an ideal opportunity by his handler who may not train as many winners as some but is more astute than most.

Mark your card

DON'T give up on David Oughton's Highland Laddie, who was all the rage for the final event at Sha Tin yesterday on the strength of some useful form as a griffin last season.

He was fresh and sweated up a bit prior to his reappearance yesterday and then ran as if he would improve significantly for the outing.
