Lindsay Varty is a half-British, half-Macanese woman raised in Hong Kong. A proud King George V School graduate, she went on to study French at the University of Nottingham in England. Now a writer and professional rugby player for the city, she lives and breathes Hong Kong and is fascinated by its culture and history. As a young girl, her parents would take her to eat congee in Sham Shui Po, order snacks from dai pai dongs and get haircuts at traditional barber shops. Her parents wanted their children to discover the real Hong Kong and to know its people. This book is a tribute to that wish.

Lindsay is a published poet, journalist and the author of The Book: A Celebration of the History of the Hong Kong Sevens Week
