(left) I don't see many "guard dogs" in Hong Kong, but there are many "guard cats" who help to control the rodent population. This one caught my eye one night, coming home from work after midnight. (right) In China we always drank bottled water, but in HK there's just no space to put the machine in these small apartments so we bought a British water filter. The "white" ceramic filter standing up (before adding the cover) is replacing the "brown" one that has kept us from drinking strange things for a year--and we are grateful!
