Putting shoe-shine boys out of business...

You may remember my post about free services we have found in various public places here in Hong Kong such as the following: mobile phone recharging, internet access, antibacterial gel, and umbrella bags.

I came across another one this afternoon at our local Tai Po Mega Mall. It's a shoe polishing machine, and it's absolutely free. I'm a bit concerned about the "grease dispenser", but as it's a free service I guess we shouldn't expect proper Kiwi polish.

And for those of you who don't happen to have access to a shoe polishing machine, if you've seen the movie "The Edge", you'd know from Sir Anthony Hopkins that the inside of a banana peel does an equally great job at shining shoes.
