Nga Tsin Wai Village

According to "The List" publication Issue 67 April 1-15, 2008, Nga Tsin Wai Village is the last remaining walled village in Kowloon and dates back to 1352, near the end of the Song Dynasty. Had a fascinating time wandering around the little alley ways but feel incredibly sad that the village will be reduced in size to ten stone houses instead of being restored to its former glory.

Cheung Chau Bun Festival

Had a brilliant day at the Cheung Chau Bun Festival on Buddha's Birthday 12 May 2008 - although, it literally was a "bun fight" getting there and back. Waited for 2 hours in a narrow street in very humid conditions just to get a glimpse of the procession but it was absolutely worth it!
