a girls best friend...
I shop at Super Star Jewelry at the Furama Hotel
in Central. They have a huge selection of baubles and trinkets
in stock but they are also ready to make up any type of jewellery
design you bring to them. This shop is reputable and prices
are good with service to match.

Janet has written to tell us that this shop no longer is at
Power Jewelery Company in Kowloon (19A Hankow Road)
are very nice people and, from my experience, tend not to
rip you off. Mention Qantas staff-- owner Christine will be
helpful and most charming. Tel: 2376 1782, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Still more jewelery...
I love the bracelets sold at Sanaco in the
Admiralty Centre in Central. They stock a lot of French and
Italian designers which are just great!

Her larger shoe sizes...
True, all women were not created equal so in Hong Kong I have
to look harder to find larger shoe sizes (9 & 10). My
suggestion is to stop in at Nine West in Pacific Place,
Admiralty. Im usually successful there.

I wait for sales and then I buy all my shoes at Nine West.
Some of their prices are at times better than they are in

There is a shoe shop called Vickie on Li Yuen St. E
which certainly was a hit with myself and the other girls
I was travelling with. I purchased a few pairs of fantastic
beaded mules which have made all my friends at home extremely
jealous and only cost £23.

She shops for discount
The stores in Wanchai are mainly sports shoe stores
-- best place for women to shop if they are looking for good
running and walking shoes.

A Bonus Tip -- Better
used to live in Hong Kong and this is what she taught me.
In the markets and small street stalls, tourists are often
charged more than the local people. So its smart for
you to say that you are a local when you are bargaining.
