We went to Luk's Woodware, Queen's Road East, to get some furniture for my folks. As soon as they heard that some gweilos were involved in the transaction, the price shot up. This is the kind of nonsense I'd expect from a Tsim Sha Tsui Camera thief, but this is from a shop in Queen's Road East, Wanchai.

Friends of my parents have been dealing with Luk's Woodware for a number of years. They regularly have containers of furniture shipped over to Ireland. We reckon that they've been getting ripped off quite substantially on every container.

sorry guy - but those shops on Queen's Road East are for gweilos; guess it's too late to tell you now.

Yeah, well we sort of knew that, but we thought they might actually deal with a Chinese person (my wife) with some basic honesty. They don't.

At least we didn't actually spend any money in there. Just wasted a few hours.

I'm a little worried that my parent's friends have been getting ripped off for years.
