Our Childhood (aka Historic Housing Estates Tour)
The story of Ho Ho Go is the story of the typical "public housing kids" - kids who grew up in public housing estates during the 1970s and 1980s in Hong Kong. Though we did not have the best financial conditions, we made up for it with strong bonds and mutual support with our neighbors. As the ladies played mah-jong, us kids would go on Tom-Sawyer style adventures through the architectural maze of public housing estates, our imaginations turning the common space into a Neverland waiting to be explored.
But there was always something special waiting to be discovered, and for Kelvin, one of our own, he found a kung-fu master, a military base, the calligraphy by the King of Kowloon, and even a cursed boulder on his adventures. These stories are what make our childhood memories so precious.
The "Our Childhood" tour is a chance for us to relive those memories with Kelvin and hunt for the Easter eggs of our childhoods. Along with the stories and discoveries, we'll visit the rainbow playground, explore mysterious light wells, and visit a rural village in the heart of the city. And of course, Kelvin will treat us to his favorite egg-tarts while sharing unique insights into the Hong Kong showbiz scene. This is going to be a community walk full of surprise.
