Crawling through the markets of Mong Kok

Equipping the kids with a few hundred Hong Kong dollars and the life-endangering instruction 'off you go, you have two hours' is the sort of real-world, life skills education I am proud of.

Taking the crowd-phobic Tiger to some of the most densely populated streets on Planet Earth is an achievement, too.

In years to come, this lesson in ruthless bargaining and scavenging amongst piles of over rated, uninsurable junk will come in handy when the little grits must negotiate the cut-throat world of the second-hand car markets of Luton.
