Islands

Some places I really like in Hong Kong

TEA AND CAKES

Old School
2/F 17 Yun Ping Road
Causeway Bay
2983 2130

This unmarked upstairs cafe, floating above a corner of Causeway, is cool for school. Kat took us there originally, and she had been taken by some local friends of hers, who had in turn been taken by their friends. It's that sort of place, off the map, but it's also unlike any sort of place at all--except for a homeroom you never had. And with tasty cakes and things. My favorite bathroom in the shopping mall city.


BOOKS

Flow
2/F 40 Lyndhurst Terr
Central

Good used books, especially if you're headed to China for a year.


MUSIC

White Noise Records
1/F, 4 Canal Road East
Causeway Bay

Best record shop + place to sit and look at big glossy art magazines.


THINGS

Kapok
G/F. 9, Dragon Road, Tin Hau.
Tel: 254 99 2564
www.ka-pok.com


DANCE

Volar

38-44 D'Aguilar St
Lan Kwai Fong
2810 1510

If I have to tell you... Better make sure you're a model, preferably from Ukraine or Finland, or tell the bouncer your name is Ilya or Austin.


ISLAND

Lamma
Island

No woman is an island.
