Time Out HK's issue 101 is out today, featuring Shu Qi, Dame Edna, Charlotte Rampling, and... HK dog walkers! (click to enlarge pic). Also, do you know where in HK that sculpture is? If so, write to the magazine (letters at timeout dot com dot hk) and tell 'em.
Want to get a bird as a pet, but have doubts about keeping it cooped up in your tiny cubicle apartment? No problem. You can just throw a sheet over the cage and you're ready to take your feathered friend out for a stroll to the local bird garden to hang out with the other birds.

Until you turn a corner and bump into one of these chaps.
