Shau Kei Wan - the MTR station nearest our home (about 10 minutes by apartment-shuttle) is my starting point. It's a place worthy of exploration all on its own, and I hope to come back just to wander some more. Certainly more of an old-school Chinese feel here.
I haven't a clue what most of this stuff is!
No refrigeration of meat around here... (even in hottest summer)
Many stops and two transfers later, I arrive in Wong Tai Sin: Kowloon side. Wong Tai Sin is where the old squatter village Chuk Yuen once thrived - until the government tore it down to erect high rises.
|some squatters remain, tucked in between the bustle|
The stunning taoist temple survived the gentrification.
My purpose for going to Wong Tai Sin each week isn't to visit the temple, however, it's to attend dance class. A Cantonese-language modern dance class at a stellar dance company. I am so grateful that it is here!! It's worth the weekly trek.
