Unusual is something you don’t see everyday, something out of the ordinary. I pick this photo because it is unusual to hang household items on the ceiling as decoration. Furthermore these are items representing an era in Hong Kong where most people are still poor.
“Poon Choi” is the most sought after dinner time dish during Chinese New Year in Hong Kong. It is serve in a basin with layers and layers of food where everyone can get their chopsticks into it.
Hong Kong, a city over 7 million people living in concrete jungles.
Surrounded by water and smog, built with steel bars and glass panels.
There are people still trying to voice their feelings about this city,
no matter it’s fight or flight or fear…
Half n half, half full or half empty?
Half tea n half coffee, half Chinese or half American?
Half light n half darkness, half hearted or half particating?
Half sky n half sea, good or bad depends on what you see.
