Slow down
A reit mess

How the other 0.05% live

I am not sure whether they are supposed to be funny, but some of the articles in the Sunday Morning Post about other people's homes can be quite entertaining. 

This week we have a small family that have two adjacent properties on Lantau, each one a modest 2,000 square feet.  One for them, the other for visitors, apparently.  Skimming through the article, they would seem to have purchased most of their furniture from street markets in Beijing.  As you do...

The best bit for me was the photograph of the stairs.  Nothing special about them as far as I could see (I'm guessing they connect the upstairs and downstairs), but one can't help noticing the white (phone?) cabling running up the stairs.  It rather spoils the whole carefully cultivated image of understated elegance.  PCCW strikes again!
