New Flickr schwags are here (by cloneofsnake)

Since I've gotten the new T-Shirts + other schwags from Emily, I thought what a great chance to give them out & we can go on a little photostroll!

One area I discovered that is quite cool is Ma Tau Kok (or To Kwa Wan 土瓜灣):

maps.google.com.hk/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=...

I don't know much about the history of that neighbourhood, but I have a feeling that it must've been quite shady back in the days... check out a pretty cool panoramic shot below:

Simon, hmm... I think I'll probably have lunch in Kowloon City and then go to the CC thing at 2pm. Then go on a photostroll afterwards. I suppose we can meet up around lunch & hang out till 2.

Rob, got your email, not sure what u mean by exhibition, but we are just a bunch of people who love photography & flickr. This Saturday, some of us will be going to the HK Creative Commons launch event, if u wanna meet up with other photo lovers, u're welcome to join us. Lunch in Kowloon City?

Laihiu, u r the #1 Flickr fan!! We're counting on you for the banner!!! LOL... j/k, I wish we have a banner, but if not, I still have those Flickr beach balls.

Right people! The event actually runs from 12 noon to 6! So feel free to head on over there early for some cool music and stuff... I'm just saying 2 - 3:30 b'coz that's the main event where Prof. Lessig & Ito-san will speak. (name?)

Cool Phey! I'll be wearing the navy blue flickr tee and playing with a couple of flickr beach balls... u can't miss me.

If anyone interested in having lunch together, let me know... I have 2 recommendations:
