This is probably a familiar scene in HK for everyone living here. I drew this from a covered overhead bridge when I was crossing to Mongkok mtr. The rows of red top mini public buses caught my eyes. They were all lined up along the road ready to pick up passengers. Cheap and convenient way to jet around HK quickly. I have yet to try one though.

School camp @ Pak Sha Wan Scout Camp, HK

School Camp5, HK
I went for a 3 days 2 night school camp this week with my kids. We got to learn dragonboating, kayaking & sailing. It was fun for me to hangout with my students as their form teacher and get to know them better.

Wanchai, Hong Kong

Wanchai, Hong Kong, originally uploaded by PaulArtSG.
Lazy sunday so I did not venture very far from home to sketch. I sat at this very busy junction where Johnston and Wanchai road split into two. I like how this old curved building blended into with the other more modern looking buildings. This sketch was also drawn with my neglected hero pen with noodler's ink.

Stone Nullah Road, Wanchai HK

Stone Nullah Road, Wanchai HK
I went back to the Blue house for more sketching today. Glad to also had a guided tour conducted by the Wanchai livelihood museum which was next to this deserted old unit. Apparently the government could not locate the original owner of his house so it has been locked up and left empty before the major renovation next year. A single unit like this could house many families during the 1920s when it was first built.

This building has no flushing toilet so strange numbers were written on the risers of the staircase in order for the night-soil man to remember how many potties each house has. He comes at midnight to every household to remove their potties. Not a job for the faint.
