All three volumes in Leung’s Hong Kong Photography Guide series have been well received, with over 300 locations featured in total. Many readers are keen to learn more photography tips from Leung and with the pandemic under control, we organised the "Autumn Photography Spots Sharing Session" in the Cosmos Books exhibition hall in Wan Chai, where Leung shared his photography tips for capturing wonderful images of Hong Kong in autumn. Besides the popular Tai Tung Shan, Leung shared that many locations will let you take pictures of the autumn-blooming Miscanthus, like the Lo Fu Tau Country Trail in Lantau Island, Ta Pang Po, the MacLehose Trail Section 4 in Wan Kuk Shan, and the quarry at Lion Rock. Many participants were curious about drone photography too, as its increasing popularity in recent times has produced many stunning images of Hong Kong from the air. More than 20 photography enthusiasts participated in the in-depth exchange with Leung and were presented with a set of four postcards featuring the beautiful sceneries from Leung’s new book! Drawing Together in "Monster Studio" The new comic series by Kaiki Chan, the creator of the popular Diary of a Waffle tells the story of protagonist Cha Cha, a cute dog with brown curly fur. Cha Cha is going through a rough patch in life as a comic artist until she rediscovers the joy of drawing when she begins teaching the children's drawing class in "Monster Studio". Ichiban Publishing recreated the "Monster Studio" drawing workshop at SOGO CLUB 16F to let young readers learn how to draw the Monster Studio characters from Kaiki herself. During the workshop, Kaiki taught young readers how to draw Cha Cha as a cake. The children put their artistic talent on full display and produced many beautiful drawings! The girls in the workshop asked Kaiki to teach them how to draw a princess but the boys were contented with continuing to read the comic book. Why were the girls so interested in drawing a princess?
