The Hong Kong retail silversmith WAI KEE 惠記 [in Mandarin: HUI JI] is one of the few retailers that truly spans three centuries; founded in 1885, the firm is still operating in almost the same location by Pedder Street with the same specialities of pearls, jewellery and silver wares. As opposed to other similar firms operating today in Hong Kong that lay claim to longevities in trading, Wai Kee is the oldest retail jeweller and silversmith in Hong Kong.

Dear Gwulo Friends

I am writing a biography of Sir Cecil Clementi (金文泰) to be published by Hong Kong University Press.

I would be interested in hearing from anyone who cares to share information, documentation, photographs, comment or opinion on the subject of Sir Cecil, his life and times.

Please feel free to contact me on grahamdhutchings@gmail.com

With thanks and regards


Cargo/passenger service between Singapore and Hong Kong in early eighties

Submitted by Michael G. on Thu, 04/01/2021 - 23:07

Hi there,

I read that there was once a cargo/passenger boat service between Hong Kong and Singapore and I'd like to know if you could tell me more about it, especially for the year 1980.

Could you for instance tell me or direct me to a site where I could find the timetables of such a service, the name(s) of the ship(s), the cost, the duration and so on?

Once again, I'd be very glad to hear from you,

Lovely Easter to you all,
