Susan, this guy is a sign maker and one of the last who can carve out intricate Chinese characters on signboards.

Kayes. I was wandering aroung Armenian Street taking photo's as you do, and came across a Chinese barber shop. I asked, as I always do if it was OK to take a few snaps but the elderly Chinese lady got very irate and waved me away. Where did I go wrong or was it not on.

Derrick, there is only one barber shop along Armenian Street. I have passed by it countless times and rarely do I see people having a haircut. This shop seems to specialise in "ear digging" which is a delicate art. They poke some kind of bamboo stick with a brush into your ears to get all unwanted stuff out. This is done by a fairly elderly guy who still has steady hands (and good eyesight), I hope. Maybe they fear that the flash and noise from cameras might disrupt things ....


You did right by asking and I suppose you got her on a bad day :-(
