Scent of Flowers
The Flower Market at Mongkok is a comfort zone to many Hongkongers. In the hustle and bustle of the narrow Flower Market Street, shoppers are busy choosing their favourite plants to make their home and workplace green. Situated at the old frontier line, the Flower Market has been operating since the beginning of the colonial period, i.e. over a century. Nearby, there is a hawker stalls for the grassroots at Fa Yuen Street. Strolling along the Flower Market and the Fa Yuen Street is just like connecting the livelihood of a hundred years.
And the development authority announced, the Flower Marker will be developed, making reference to
Lee Tung Street (No longer the Wedding Card Street)
In other words, the Flower Market will become an area of tiny luxury apartments, with many chain stores for brands but no trace of lifestyle of ordinary people.
In this connection, I would like to tell you about the story of the Flower Market before its perishment, to take you to the Fa Yuen Street for some local groceries, and to pick your favourite plants to built your own petite garden under the instruction of Master Choi Chi.
