    If it's the same guy I saw/heard last year around CSW./SSP. area then it's very likely some begpacker trying to beg money.

    In July I was sitting at Big Wave Bay having a rest after a long hike - when a young Chinese girl turned up in a kilt with a set of bagpipes and started blasting out a whole load of traditional Scottish 'hits' - was quite surreal, perhaps there's a local bagpiping club...

    There used to be a guy practice the pipes at the HKAPA garden at the weekends, not sure if he still does. I expect there is not much opportunity to practice at home here without upsetting the whole tower block.
