On a Christmas tree hunt across London 🎄

Festive Shop windows 🧚‍♀️

This is Sharpleshall Street in Primrose Hill in London. It is the street my gran and grandpa lived in when they were first married. When The Second World War started my grans mother begged them to leave London and move out of harms way back up to their home of... Clydebank. And we all know what happened to Clydebank in The Second World War. They moved back up and their whole street was bombed. Thankfully, they survived. Its funny to think if theyd stayed they could have spent their lives in Primrose Hill which is a very wealthy area now. I wouldnt have minded being born in Primrose Hill, I have to say!

See you under the mistletoe 🍃 📸: @antbuchet

Happy Friday everybody!! The week is over and looking forward to the festive weekend in London🎄🎅

The pleasure was mine, London! I will miss you dearly but it’s time for new beginnings - 2019, I can’t wait... ____________________________________ #london #thisislondon #london4all #exploretocreate #mydarlinglondon #thatsdarling #passionpassport #beautifuldestinations #tv_pointofview #theshard

Back in Paris but sharing some Christmas 🎄 London that I’ve just edited. This was the lovely sight that greeted me as I left the Victoria and Albert Museum. Designed by Alfred Waterhouse in the dripping Neo- Gothic of the Victorian Era. Waterhouse also designed Manchester City Hall where Norman Foster worked as a clerk for two years when he was 16. Waterhouse was influenced by the Oxford University Museum of Natural History which had been built 20 earlier and was designed by the Irish Architects Thomas Deane and Benjamin Woodward. . . . . . . #prettycitylondon #kensington #its_so_london #architecturephotography #mycityloves #timeoutlondon #visitlondon #gramminginlondon #prettylittlelondon #cntraveler #goopgo #tlpicks #londonlove #photosofengland #elledecor #toplondonphoto #christmasinlondon #postitfortheaesthetic #london_city_photo #theprettycities #thelondonlifeinc #naturalhistorymuseumlondon #travellingthroughtheworld #thisislondon #mydarlinglondon #fujilove #myfujifilm #londonbylondoners #architecture_london

Further photographs may be seen at: ॐ www.aumphotos.com 📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸 FOLLOW @aumnamahshiva for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material 📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸 Young Indonesian women in demure traditional garb stroll through Hong Kong Park on Sunday. Indonesians in Hong Kong, numbering 102,100, form the second-largest ethnic minority group in the territory, behind Filipinos.80 - 90% are women; most Indonesians coming to Hong Kong today are those who arrive under limited-term contracts for employment as foreign domestic helpers. The Hong Kong Immigration Department allows the Indonesian consulate to force Indonesian domestic helpers to use employment agencies. Employment agencies in Indonesia sending workers to Hong Kong provide up to six months of training in household work, including a basic course in Cantonese and extract high fees, comprising 6 months of salary (US$2,709).😪 Camps in which the young women migrants are made to stay for the duration of their training also double as a system of incarceration. Following the period of training, the workers will spend up to a few years (sic) detained until a job offer is made in order to prevent pregnancy and ensure that workers will be available when jobs are requested. 🤔 Living conditions in centres are poor. Women are made to sleep on the floor packed tightly against each other, and only one bucket of water is afforded per person for bathing. There is little medical care for illness that result from these conditions, and physical and sexual abuse occurs. 😱 Even the trip from home to the migration center often involves being sexually abused by the training center recruiter. Money is remitted home via friends or informal networks such as hawala ( value transfer networks). Money remitted allows relatives to start businesses, creating employment for up to 6 people per helper. #rpscontemporarygroup

The earliest pioneer of the modern taxi service may have been Wu Zung (胡忠). In 1941, he is believed to have owned 40 taxis, including 10 white cards, which he leased to the government. When the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong began in December of the same year, he suspended his transport operation. He resumed his business after the war with 100 cars. Prior to 1974, taxi liveries were chosen by licensees, with a proliferation of colours and mingling with private vehicles. On 13 September 1974, the government gazetted standard colours – silver for the upper half and red for the lower half – for all taxicabs in Hong Kong to weed out illegal taxis. From 1976 onwards, ordinary (red) taxis would be allowed to continue to operate in the New Territories as well as Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, while New Territories taxis – silver for the upper half and green for the lower would be forbidden from venturing into urban areas. A batch of 20 blue taxis serving Lantau Island started operating in 1983. The majority of HK taxis (Toyota Coronas) are owned by 17 independent taxi companies that rent out taxis on a shift basis to 40,000 self-employed drivers. As of 2017, there were 18,163 taxis in Hong Kong, of which 15,250 were urban taxis, 2,838 were New Territories taxis, and 75 were Lantau taxis. Every day they serve about 1.1 million, 207,900 and 1,400 people respectively.

It is estimated that 26.8% of the population will be aged 65 or more in 2033, up from 12.1% in 2005. Hong Kong recorded 8.2 births per 1,000 people in 2005–2010.

The area was previously swampland, but the only flat ground suitable for horse racing on Hong Kong Island. To make way for the racecourse, Hong Kong Government prohibited rice growing by villages in the surrounding area. The first race ran in December 1846. Over the years, horse racing became more and more popular among the Chinese residents.

Ignatius G Gispert, Cecil Lee, Frederick Horse Thomson, Ronald Torch Bennett, Eric Galvin, H.M. Doig, and John Woodrow. A. S.

Started by the British when they first came to Hong Kong in 1841 and has become since then, a sport for the masses and a favourite pastime. Chinese love gambling; the turnover of the jockey club in 2016/7 was HK$216.5 Billion - I.e. an estimate of 1000 GBP per person per year. The Hong Kong Jockey Club, one of the oldest Hong Kong institutions founded to promote and administer horse racing and other betting entertainment, is Hong Kongs biggest taxpayer as well as one of the citys largest charity donors. It recently refurbished the old city police station and gaol as a museum. Happy Valley is a world-class state-of-the-art racing course in the centre of HK. Back in 1846, Happy Valley was swamp land, but the only flat surface in Hong Kong Island, Through the years, the city has built around the Happy Valley race course, and it is now surrounded by skyscrapers. The other site is at Sha Tin. The 5 star Peninsula hotel opened in 1928 picks up guests in a Rolls Royce and is sited near Victoria harbour next to the old railway station, offering waterside views of Kowloon .

Three ways to reach the Peak are hiking through Aberdeens forests, via Asia’s oldest funicular, the Peak Tram (image 3) or by the 15 bus from Central. At the top is an observatory (Image 2). Alternatively, Hong Kong’s highest observation deck, Sky 100 (sky100.com.hk), is suspended 390m above terra firma, on the 100th floor of the territory’s tallest building, the International Commerce Centre (ICC, image 6) in West Kowloon, offering a 360⁰ view covering Hong Kong Island and almost all of Kowloon Peninsula. 18 floors higher on the ICC is Ozone, Ritz Carlton’s bar. A good book to read in the bar is Days and Nights of Love and War (Días y Noches de Amor y de Guerra,1978) by exiled Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano. It chronicles two decades of struggle and perseverance in Latin America, with the 1976 Argentine coup détat as its focal point. Galeano reveals episodes of his early life such as surviving malaria, loss of faith in God, threats of military coups, dictators and censorship, as well as his experiences living amongst Indians, guerrillas, presidents and prostitutes. He defends his compatriots as well as Brazilian street children and embattled indigenous Mexicans. @shashank5241

Curves are introduced, where appropriate ; for example the HK exhibition and convention centre. The principal design element is a distinctive roof, whose undulating, wing-like forms create an iconic image for Hong Kong. The roof allows for a dramatic, 75-foot-high vaulted ceiling above the convention hall, with column-free spans of 80 meters.  Equally the new railway station in Kowloon allows HK to be linked to the mainland with fast trains. Visa checks are made by Chinese government officials within the station. 🎶🎶🎶🎶 Jefferson Airplane : When the garden flowers Baby, are dead, yes And your mind, your mind Is so full of red Dont you want somebody to love Dont you need somebody to love Wouldnt you love somebody to love You better find somebody to love 🎼 @shashank5241
