March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

Update 10/23/2012 - Monrovia Hong Kong Supermarket


This photo was taken today showing the progress, or lack of progress, at the Hong Kong Supermarket on Duarte Road in Monrovia.  I last posted an update on the store back on June 3rd (see it here) and there isn't a lot of visible change in the last 4 1/2 months.

There was even a story in the Pasadena Star-News at the time expecting the store to be open by August or September.  Didn't make it. Not even close.

Interesting. Any idea what the hold-up is?

I am also wondering what is the hold up.

I don't have any idea. I've seen people working in there, but it is slow going.
