Yesterday I went to the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre in Shek Kip Mei in Kowloon. I was there on assignment and it was my first time visiting the place, a 10-minute walk from the MTR station.
The building is former factory and about eight years ago was turned into the JCCAC with 150 studios for artists, arts groups, and students. On the walls were posters advertising for various art classes, like ceramics, painting, photography for all ages.
As a result many of the rooms are studios, or offices related to the arts. Perhaps PMQ should have been turned into something like this than focusing on just retail.
It was quite hot yesterday and so by the time I arrived for my appointment, I was dripping with sweat.
But outside on the balcony, there was a cool breeze and I saw this slice of blue sky in between two tall residential buildings.
It kind of sums up Hong Kong -- if you are privileged enough to have any kind of view...
