Illegal extension of shop areas outside business premises are common sights in Hong Kong. But it is rare that a shop extends the illegal area even from the sidewalk to the road.

Melancholic

The saying tells of a common local belief that one shall not pity oneself too much for his or her own misfortune.Buckle up, no matter how difficult the situation is facing you (the author just heard about an ex-colleague suffering from leukaemia; pray that he can get through it peacefully no matter what the future holds for him).

Fu

(Camera: Ricoh GX200)This kiosk is selling all kinds of denim jeans of every kind and colour you can or cannot imagine. Denim is a kind of pants, or known as Fu in Cantonese which is homophonic to the word Wealthy. As Chinese is a nation keen on playing with homophonic words, pants is one of the items on the must-buy list to get prepared for the Chinese New Year.This is way beyond or before, depending on which way you are looking, a Chinese New Year. But if you wish to buy a pair of cheap denim jeans, the open-air market on Fa Yuen Street is a good choice.
