To earn a crust in this world I try my best as a Knitwear designer, which involves me putting together designs which I then get Chinese people to make for me. I promise its not slave labour.
Trips into China are often needed to check upon my samples, cracking the whip (not literally though) which is usually an interesting experience.
The area which I visit most often is that of Dongguan an hour or so by train from Hong Kong. It is a large industrial city made up of factories all shapes and sizes and close to 7million people living and working there. It never ceases to amaze me the things that go on in China. Last time I was there, a man was walking through the traffic selling puppies...I kid you not.

Most of these were taken whilst in the (slight) safety of Mr Ho's car...kind of like drive by photo shooting.

Copy Watch, Copy Handbag...

Hong Kong is full of them. Whether they be selling you food or things that possibly fell off the back of a truck. One of THE markets to go to (according to many an HK guide) is Temple Street Night Market.
Amongst the nicnaks and 'i <3 HK' t-shirts are outdoor restaurants and interesting old Hong Kong buildings.
Food and old timey and love.
