Hi Tim, while at HK I went and got the sample book from YS. I got it a while back ago, but it just took me a long time to drop a note to say thanks.
If anybody else is interested in visiting the YS office. There is no subway station nearby so it is either taxi or bus. I took the bus from the Kowloon Ferry Terminal. I forgot the bus number, ask any bus driver there for which bus is going to "To Kwa Wan". The office is in a building located at one end of a side stree lined with motorcyle and auto repair shops. YS office is located on the ground floor of the building. It is very easy to miss it with a very undistinguishable door. Its entrance is on the right side of the apartment building's metal gate.
The office is somewhat of a dump with a small machine shop in the back. The sample book actually comes in two binders sold separately. I bought both sets for about US$80. I tried to talk him into giving me a better deal but "no second price". I ask him how often does people stop by to purchase this book and he said every now and then. The week before I showed up a group of Germans stopped by, so this might become a hotspot for the international designer and engineer crowd.
And yes they actually have an website now yicksang.com
Its funny that I've been to HK many times yet this is the first time I actually bought something there besides paying for hotel and food. I hope the HK Tourism Board will take me off thier blacklist of unwelcomed stingy visitors now.
