    Please recommend good HK blogs

    A newbie from London, I enjoy reading two or three top-class blogs each day. Not looking for the everyday life of expat mum and kids, but something a little more outwrard-looking. Insights on local culture most coveted, plus a bit of political commentary. Nothing heavy and preferably a light and humorous approach, as well as being well written.

    I like this one:

    http://daisann.com/

    Some good stuff here - some really local stuff such as the Da Siu Yan old ladies in Causeway Bay.

    and of course, the old favourite

    www.bigwhiteguy.com - not nearly as interesting as it used to be... But I still subscribe in case it gets better - for the past few years it has mostly been about shilling advertisers' products and posting blurbs of minor things here and there. The guy is a great photographer though

    www.butterboom.com - a good blog for entertainment and new products.

    www.briandonovan.info/descriptors/ - This one is hilarious - take the whiniest, most cynical expat you know, multiply his bad attitude by 1000, and you have an idea of what this guy is like... Totally confrontational, and complains about everything.

    Similar in style to Hemlock, but a bit more quirky and covers topics such as sport that Hemlock wouldn't touch, http://ulaca-es.blogspot.com/

    To share readings and thoughts on current events, land use and land policy in Hong Kong & China, social justice and civic rights, and other incoherent thoughts.

    Oh yeah, another one I forgot to mention

    http://www.zonaeuropa.com/weblog.htm

    Maybe a bit too political, but there are some interesting posts there

    Not a blog exactly, and neither what it purports to be, a review of HK blogs, nonetheless, the self-styled "Sham Shui Po Boy" is an absolute scream http://hong-kong-blogs-review.com/

    He manages to miss the point about nearly all the sites he casts his critical eye over.
