I hope you weren't kicked out of the weather underground hk forum. Those w. underground guys can be rather weird/too serious for their own good, hehehe, but nevertheless quite informative, typhoon-wise.

What routes have the old style big open deck in the back?
Not to mention all the kaido services around the back blocks, although they're hardly convenient to Happy Valley for a weekend outing for HC & family
One of the privileges of living in Tuen Mun is being able to get to & from South Lantau sitting on the open top deck. The big decision is should I get off at Sha Lo Wan and walk around to Tai O, or vice versa? (in autumn & winter, that is. In summer just staying on 'til Tai O and going for lunch is a no-brainer)
