Nostalgia 1970s, when things were still “made in Hong Kong”. This is an ad for a “school bag”, which is more like a briefcase, as seen in Hong Kong Museum of History. Don’t underestimate plastics. Li, Ka Shing, the richest man in Hong Kong, started his empire with a plastic manufacturing factory!

weLuvTaiPo

How could I not love Tai Po (大埔) district in Hong Kong? It is less densely populated than Kowloon or Hong Kong Island. It boasts the largest park managed by Leisure and Cultural Services Department as well as a rapidly expanding science park.

Speaking of sea, Tai Po also has the world’s first “reservoir in the ocean”, Plover Cove, which has the longest dam in Hong Kong measuring 2km.
