#Repost @stephennorman86 with @get_repost ・・・ Went to see Leicester Comedy festival show last night and knew I'd be parking near this location to took my camera. The light at the top of the building was a lot brighter than I realised. It looks almost like a lighthouse :) #leicestermercury #leicestershire #Leicester #myleicester #igersleicester #thecurve #manhattanbar #Urban #lovegreatbritain #mycanon #bbctravel #photosofbritain #photosofengland #bbcbritain #arte_objetiva #uk_greatshots #europe_greatshots #ig_color #superhubs_shot #visitbritain #igworldglobal #worldprime #canon #madewithmefoto

Walking is the best way to see a city... and all the decorations! 🎄✨ If there's one perfect place for a wandering stroll in London, I'd say it's Marylebone. 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In other news, I firmly believe that more restaurants (all restaurants?) should provide blankets in winter like @theivymarylebone. ⛄️❤️ . . . . . . #mfrancisdesigntravels #christmasinlondon #cozycozycozy #babyitscoldoutside #prettycitylondon #visitlondon #travelerinlondon #lovegreatbritain #thisislondon #visitengland #cntraveler #theeverygirl #suitcasetravels #travelartfully #suitcasetraveler #goopgo #adventuresofanthro #anthropologie #guardiantravelsnaps #london #theprettycities #prettylittlelondon #mydarlinglondon #toplondonphoto #mysecretlondon #timeoutlondon #locallondon #visitbritain #lovelondon #momentsofmine

Westminster Bridge Repost #lovegreatbritain This is how one always imagined London in winter season. Mysterious, humid and foggy. The London we read about in novels and watch in old-fashioned movies. 📷 @liolaliola #riz.mali #rmairporttransfers

My favourite is when I turn on some music which I love in the shop and customers ask me what artist it is and I write it down on a piece of paper for them. Maybe this is my mission in life? Just spread some nice music and make people listen to less pop and rap shit? 😁. Parov Stelar is always the winner, by the way. Never fails to get compliments! 🎶 Люблю, когда ставлю в магазине музыку, которая мне нравится, и покупатели спрашивают, что это за артист, и я пишу для них на клочке бумаги имя. Может, это моя миссия в жизни? Просто распространять классную музыку в массы, чтобы люди слушали меньше поп и рэп говна? 😁 Parov Stelar, кстати, всегда собирает комплименты. Обязательно послушайте 💕#musicismyaeroplane

Hong Kong Park near the tribute to 8 doctors and health care workers who died looking after patients with SARS. 🇨🇳 A mandala (मण्डल – "circle") is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. In common use, "mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. The basic form of most mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point. Each gate is in the general shape of a T. Mandalas often have radial balance. The term appears in the Rigveda as the name of the sections of the work, and Vedic rituals use mandalas such as the Navagraha mandala to this day. Mandalas are also used in Tibetan Buddhism. 🙏

Any unauthorised copying or redistribution will constitute an infringement of copyright. Further photographs may be seen at: ॐ www.aumphotos.com 📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸 FOLLOW @aumnamahshiva for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material 📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸 Young Indonesian women in demure traditional garb stroll through Hong Kong Park on Sunday. Indonesians in Hong Kong, numbering 102,100, form the second-largest ethnic minority group in the territory, behind Filipinos.80 - 90% are women; most Indonesians coming to Hong Kong today are those who arrive under limited-term contracts for employment as foreign domestic helpers. The Hong Kong Immigration Department allows the Indonesian consulate to force Indonesian domestic helpers to use employment agencies. Employment agencies in Indonesia sending workers to Hong Kong provide up to six months of training in household work, including a basic course in Cantonese and extract high fees, comprising 6 months of salary (US$2,709).😪 Camps in which the young women migrants are made to stay for the duration of their training also double as a system of incarceration. Following the period of training, the workers will spend up to a few years (sic) detained until a job offer is made in order to prevent pregnancy and ensure that workers will be available when jobs are requested. 🤔 Living conditions in centres are poor. Women are made to sleep on the floor packed tightly against each other, and only one bucket of water is afforded per person for bathing. There is little medical care for illness that result from these conditions, and physical and sexual abuse occurs. 😱 Even the trip from home to the migration center often involves being sexually abused by the training center recruiter. Money is remitted home via friends or informal networks such as hawala ( value transfer networks). Money remitted allows relatives to start businesses, creating employment for up to 6 people per helper. #rpscontemporarygroup

Further photographs may be seen at: ॐ www.aumphotos.com 📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸 FOLLOW @aumnamahshiva for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material 📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸📸 🇨🇳 The Chinese name for taxi used in Hong Kong, dik si(的士), is a Cantonese transliteration of the English word "taxi". The earliest pioneer of the modern taxi service may have been Wu Zung (胡忠). In 1941, he is believed to have owned 40 taxis, including 10 white cards, which he leased to the government. When the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong began in December of the same year, he suspended his transport operation. He resumed his business after the war with 100 cars. Prior to 1974, taxi liveries were chosen by licensees, with a proliferation of colours and mingling with private vehicles. On 13 September 1974, the government gazetted standard colours – silver for the upper half and red for the lower half – for all taxicabs in Hong Kong to weed out illegal taxis. From 1976 onwards, "ordinary" (red) taxis would be allowed to continue to operate in the New Territories as well as Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, while New Territories taxis – silver for the upper half and green for the lower would be forbidden from venturing into urban areas. A batch of 20 blue taxis serving Lantau Island started operating in 1983. The majority of HK taxis (Toyota Coronas) are owned by 17 independent taxi companies that rent out taxis on a shift basis to 40,000 self-employed drivers. As of 2017, there were 18,163 taxis in Hong Kong, of which 15,250 were urban taxis, 2,838 were New Territories taxis, and 75 were Lantau taxis. Every day they serve about 1.1 million, 207,900 and 1,400 people respectively.

It is estimated that 26.8% of the population will be aged 65 or more in 2033, up from 12.1% in 2005. Hong Kong recorded 8.2 births per 1,000 people in 2005–2010. According to the 2016 by-census, 92% of the Hong Kong population is ethnic Chinese and 8% are other ethnic groups, including a large number of Filipinoand Indonesian foreign domestic helpers, making up approximately 4% of the population. 🐎🐎🐎🐎 It was first built in 1845 to provide horse racing for the British people in Hong Kong. The area was previously swampland, but the only flat ground suitable for horse racing on Hong Kong Island. To make way for the racecourse, Hong Kong Government prohibited rice growing by villages in the surrounding area. The first race ran in December 1846. Over the years, horse racing became more and more popular among the Chinese residents.
