Hong Kong is an unique city with very interesting blend of the new and the old, the east and the west, the international bit and the very local bit.

Being a financial adviser by profession who has great interest in things from older Hong Kong, I am happy to share with you the authentic HK neighborhood experience…food, shops, history, culture, little stories in the community and also, the struggle the city is facing as it makes its way to remain as an international financial center.

I am also a food lover (who loves eating, baking and cooking!). Fancy having Chinese cooking lesson at local home? I will be very happy to show you around local market and do cooking with you at my place. Making Dai Pai Dong food with home setting sounds like a fun challenge!

I travel often in my leisure time. When visiting a new country, I really enjoy exploring local cuisines, seeing beyond what the usual tourist might, and getting a true feel for what local life in that place might be. I know what you need if you are likeminded people:) You will have full control of how adventurous your food experience will be and I will pay attention to your special requests.

Looking forward to having a good time with you! 🙂

    So, I just finished my 5 hour tour with Cathy. The tour was excellent. I’m normally not the type of person for tours in general, but I fully recommend Cathy for anyone wanting to see the real Hong Kong (i.e. a Wan Kar Wai film). She was like touring with an old friend, who was genuinely interested in making sure I was happy…and well fed .

    Some highlights; visiting a local’s restaurant for dim sum, and getting a “check up” by a Chinese medicine specialist (really, sounds strange, but this was a highlight. Interesting to see how they treat different issues.) Also, the street food in Mongkok was excellent.
