    For 15 years (off and on) curvaceous Lily Wong sent us snapshots of life from
   colonial Hong Kong. Lily and her western husband, Stuart, took us through the
   day to day trials and tribulations of ordinary life there, the clash of cultures, the
   interfering politics of east and west, and over-riding machinations of power.
   Lily was created by cartoonist Larry Feign, who was and is still an American
   abroad in the Far East, with a Hong kong wife and life of his own. Larry was
   perfectly positioned to record the happenings of our far-flung UK colony,
   and its effects on the ground.

   Lily first appeared in the "Hongkong Standard" and "South China Morning Post"
   in 1986. She absconded for a while in 1995, but in 1997, she was brought out
   of limbo by Britain's very own "Independent" newspaper, specifically to document
   the hundred days handover of power from the UK government to the Chinese
   authorities. Three years on from this historical event, she returned once more
   to show us how life was progressing under the fledgling regime.

   In October 2007, Larry brought Lily out of retirement to feature in a series of
   strips presented in Cantonese.

   Although purists may argue she's not a British toon creation (Mr Feign is an
   American abroad, remember), Lily and Larry's contribution to UK cartoon
   history is undeniable...
