Gwulo / Batgung : Past / Present

Back in March, gweipo gave us a good observation:

To be honest i think that your site has become 2 things, one is the present HK with tips for newcomers and oldies on living here, surviving and thriving here.  And then delving into the past.

We've decided to split these '2 things' apart, and give each one its own website.

This site,, will carry on with tips and conversations about life in Hong Kong today. The new site,, will be for anything related to old Hong Kong.

There are over 9,700 individual posts and comments on this site, so it's going to take a while to divide them up. You can expect to face occasional problems until the work is finished - 'page not found' is going to be the most common. We'll work through it as quickly as we can, but thanks in advance for your patience.

Please take a look at the new site when you have a chance. If you already have a username and password on, you can also use them to login to To start with the new site looks like a trimmed-down version of batgung, but over time we'll be giving it some new features.

As always, please leave a note below if you have any comments, questions or suggestions.


Permenant link in Navigation section

Hi there,

I have an idea.  Why don't you put a permenant link in Navigation pointing to Gwulo and likewise make a link in Gwulo pointing back to Batgung?

Best Regards,


re: Permanent link

T, that makes sense. I'll add it to the to-do list.

Thanks, MrB
