Ahem, you can dispose of your unwanted materials at this receptacle near the Hong Kong Museum of Art.

Speaking of, there’s a fascinating exhibit about the Brits’ rocky affair with HK at the museum now. My personal favorite was the phrase book designed for foreigners who wanted to communicate with the local people. Useful phrases for tourists in the 1800s: "Velly welly, thankee you, Sir.“ (Very well, thank you sir); "Can you chargee more lessee?” (Can you reduce the price?); “Some man killum him.” (He has been murdered); and probably the most useful … “Got tipsy” (I am drunk).
