Star teachers

You know it's the start of term when cram school adverts promising glorious HKDSE results begin to pop up all over the MTR.

A commonly used marketing strategy of these cram schools is to entice teenage customers by featuring superstar teachers with bucketloads of sex appeal on their posters. See fig. A.

However, this strategy is not always entirely successful. See fig. B.

Against the wall

'Wall diving' refers to swimming along an underwater cliff face. The cliff plunges down to unreachable depths and you admire the fauna as you glide along with a sensation of flying, as you can see here. (Moalboal, Cebu)

Hong Kong's dive sites are notoriously flat with sand or muddy bottoms. But in some special places, you can do 'wall diving' in Hong Kong, too! Hooray!
