Walk hand in hand

Well, they can't, but shoes in hand instead. I don't know if there's a proper name for this kind of "pebblestone walk" but they can be found in a lot of parks in Mainland China, and are getting popular in Hong Kong as well. Probably based on the theory of reflexology, walking on these pebblestones is supposed to be good for one's health. I took this photo in the Victoria Park but I didn't try the walk -- I did see some painful expressions from these people.

All I could think when I saw the picture was my mother would have a fit if she saw they didn't untie their shoes before taking them off. :) Nice photo.

That's an interesting "exercise", right?

Hi Min, I thought this is a very Chinese thing, don't know it is in Singapore as well?? What about Malaysia? Edwin?

It looks kind of painful but also comfortable at the same time. Strange.

The rocks look pretty smooth - I wonder y the painful expressions - perhaps the stones are massaging all the pain out of their soles =P
