    When one enters into Sham Shui Po, To Kwa Wan, one will see walls peeling off, exposed steel of old buildings, coupled with dark designs, it's almost difficult to walk. Facing lack of remodeling, many owners of old buildings are in favor of the Government's "Building Update" project, considering the plan encourage them to speed up repairs.

     

    Old buildings can be seen everywhere in To Kwa Wan, especially in the thirteen Street where there is row upon row of old buildings. Thirteen Street repair member of the Concern Group, Cheung Yiu-Nam said he welcomes the project very much believing this is a good news for the owners of old buildings. He points out that there is a total of more than 80 old buildings on thirteen Street, the vast majority of which are more than half a century old. After scouring under the vicissitudes of life, many old buildings have pipes leakage, walls severely peeling off, and exposure of steel, such situations that badly need repair.

     

    Cheung Yiu-nam says that in the past, many old buildings have received a statutory order from the Buildings Department, but because only about 19 old buildings have OCs in the 80 buildings, that others have not established, therefore no one can carry out maintenance plans; also, finding owners of the same old buildings to form OCs is time-consuming, "Unable to contact many owners, also many owners are old, and in the absence of income, they will not pay for maintenance", hence eventually, repair ends up with not followed up even the Buildings Department urges repeatedly, that no one can comply with a statutory order.

     

    In response to these difficult questions, in this plan, the Government has made a decision to help these old buildings with no OCs with following plan, "first repair, pay later" by hiring consultants and contractors for the owners. After the completion of works and deducting the amount of subsidy, the Government will ask the owners for the remaining costs. Cheung Yiu-nam considers the plan to be inconvenient, particularly to those owners who are over 60 that have buildings but no money. They can even receive full funding from the plan, so they do not need to pay from their wallets to have proper maintenance of buildings. He says that the Concern group has met to discuss the plan, and believe this project will also attract old buildings in other districts to carry out repairs.

    Going to temple, putting incense in front of deities, worshipping, and drawing tallies, although dismissed as superstition, it is a part of Hong Kong's culture that has long been rooted in the hearts of many people. When people are somewhat unsatisfactory, they will worship the heaven, begging the gods to provide some guidance, particularly, and even more so in the times of economic downturn.

     

    A fortune tally master reading tally in Wong Tai Sin Temple for nearly a decade, who wishes to remain anonymous says that recently customers are younger in age than ever before, and even students who did not graduate come to ask about their future that she could not help but persuade those anxious students to be responsible as a studen studying well first.

     

    At the same time, being biliterate and trilingual, has almost become a prerequisite for modern job-seekers, but in order to keep up with the times, even the fortune tally master of this traditional industry have also mastered this one "skill". In a short span of 30 minutes, the fortune tally master who knows English, has successfully recruited two foreign tourists for business. As we can see, learning and mastering a foreign language can really help to develop and expand career!
