St. Patrick's favourite pit stop

So you had a bit too much to drink, and you’re traipsing the town for some grub to sober up. Suddenly a leprechaun appears (actually a leprechick dressed in a bikini), who whispers in your ear, “What's the craic? Follow me to the end of the rainbow, and you'll find a wee pot of … potatoes."

Got the Kou concept?

Let’s face it. You know as well as we do that IKEA furniture items are only passably cool if they don’t look like they’re from IKEA! Case in point: the Billy bookshelf. Its ever so neutral appearance lacks character and style that you’re bound to hear your houseguest say, “Hey, I’ve got a Billy too!”

A corner full of chestnuts

There are plenty of romantic places where couples can engage in sensual (maybe even lascivious) activities in Hong Kong. Go up the Peak and make out under the stars; a couple’s spa at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hotel; sex on the beach (and we don’t mean the cocktail drink)…the list goes on.

Reach for the skies
Become an aviator

There’s nothing as breathtaking as a bird’s eye view of the city while flying overhead in a helicopter. Better yet, whisk your woman away on a fly-and-dine escapade that will take you on a flightseeing tour before a fancy dinner for two. But unless you’re Howard Hughes, having a chopper as a limo will most certainly burn a hole in your wallet.

OneNow can give you one now

You’ve looked under every stone in Hong Kong for the perfect jersey of your favourite American sports team, but come up empty handed. Then, by sheer luck, you discover it online at a U.S. store. Happily, you dump it in your shopping cart, check out, and click 'confirm purchase'. Suddenly, a pop-up window appears: "Sorry, we do not accept international orders!" @#!$*#^% (French expletive)

Are you a Red Capitalist?

One walk along the tourist streets of Beijing, and you’re instantly bombarded by remnant whiffs of kitschiness that take you back to the days of the Cultural Revolution. Aren’t you just itching to take home a few Mao Zedong statues, copies of his “Little Red Book” and vintage propaganda posters?
