This is about Shau Kei Wan beyond its Main Street East, with a prison-like warehouse, a shipless ship repair yard, Ming Wah Dai Ha with its exterior design going against the typical public housing architecture, the frozen-in-1960s A Kung Ngam industrial area, and remnants of a Hakka-run quarry that flourished ‘when the port was opened’ (a euphemism for the start of British rule)… Other than fishball noodles and the local Tin Hau Temple, you will experience a unique side of Shau Kei Wan.
