Product Description

As a teenager growing up in Hong Kong in the 1960’s, a young Eurasian Boy takes us through a number of his wild and mischievous adventures based on real-life experiences. A yo-yo championship, flying Chinese fighting kites while precariously perched on high-rise rooftops, a unique multi-cultural English high school called KGV, encounters with the Chinese Triads, racing motorcycles and cars, gambling in Macau casinos, crossing between Occidental and Oriental culture, University in Australia and of course that first encounter with the opposite sex (and what follows). He recounts a truly amazing litany of teenage experiences that would be foreign to most not having the opportunity to enjoy the appetizing delights of the British Colony bordering China. Tony Tebbutt opens up his inner-self to expose his emotions, joy and personal frailties as he recounts his life lessons with personal achievement, education, women and moral values. Through it all he is able to find humor in his faults and share the exuberance of his successes. An easy read and an absolute must if you enjoy good stories, coming of age or have a connection to old Hong Kong.
