Hot  from the local news  in Hong Kong (well....lukewarm ...the  pic was  taken  when I happened to be  visiting  Geoff's home  a few  weeks  ago  to  see his   VMIPB  collection) :

The  headline in Chinese  reads:

HONG KONG  CHIEF  EXECUTIVE (ELECT) CARRIE LAM 林鄭月娥 CONGRATULATES  FAMOUS  LOCAL COLLECTOR  OF  VMIPBS  彭达理  ON PURCHASING YET ANOTHER BOTTLE  (boring...)

 Grin  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Cheers
Peter

PS:  Hey Geoff  - you  were  too  shy to join the  photo-shoot ... Embarrassed

Hi Peter,

That's quite something, newspaper headline! Did you tell her that her initiative to establish the HK Palace Museum is great?

Best,
Samson
