laced with style


One of the first things that struck me about Hong Kong minibuses is the lacy trim of the seats.  It is somewhat like being in Granny's living room while speeding along at 79 kph (the driver usually attempting to stay on the 'safe' side of the beeper, but not always)

Looking back on this weekend's photos, I thought I'd dedicate a post to Hong Kong's chintz-on-wheels in all its kitschy glory.

  3. I catch the minivan all the time and I never noticed the lace!! I just notice how drivers can bear with the 79kmph, *beep*, 79kmph, *beep*, 79kmph, *beep*...all night long.

  4. Well they don't all have lace... but I consider it my lucky day when I get in one that has seats all dolled up like a princess-mobile.
