I have seen some good video of Aden on UTube. I keep thinking of posting some of mine from the recent trips I've made if I can sort out how to upload the stuff. I don't remember 'Wongs" I presume the heavy jacket was for a trip back to the UK. I can recall sitting around a single bar electric fire at the house in Ghadir as the air conditioning was for ever set at 70F. I do not recognise any stores on Maalla straight from my times there as a child / teenager. The Chinese restaurant at the Crater Pass end of Maalla straight is still in operation that must be over 60 plus years of continued patronage!!
We remember Wongs shop very well and have various items still in the family. We were in touch with the Wongs who had a shop and lived in Dubai definitely until a couple of years ago. They have family in UK, Hong Kong and France.
I think on my very last trip, the whole family of us got kitted out at Wongs. I had my jacket for years, and thought I was very trendy, as they had coloured toggles on them !!!!For those who didn't visit, they were heavy winter jackets.
