BLOG – Heroes & Villains: Chan Chung-lam & Mr Zheng

Hong Wrong hereby announces the first ‘Heroes & Villains’ bout, recognising the best and worse our city has to offer…

Chan Chung-lam is officially a Hong Kong hero… Last week, he found a plastic bag containing around HK$74,000 in cash on a bus. It had been left behind by a 26-year-old pub manager who fell asleep on the 68X from Yuen Long to Mongkok. Chan, 60, picked up the bag, called 999 and cooperated with the police to ensure the money was returned to its rightful owner.

BLOG – Tsim Sha Tsui in LEGO 4

Yau Tsim Mong district and Victoria Harbour have been recreated in LEGO, currently exhibiting at City Gallery (next to City Hall).

‘City Impressions @ Tsim Sha Tsui’ will take you on an interesting journey back to yesterday, through today. Revealed in the exhibition are maps, photos, plans, simulated images together with colourful plastic brick models of Tsim Sha Tsui.”

Running until June 17th, this ‘plastic brick model‘ event is clearly ‘unofficially’ LEGO-related, but is worth a visit if around Central, plus it’s free.
