Miniatures Exhibition - Hong Kong Treasures

Joseph had visited this exhibition a few days ago.

The exhibition shows some models of Hong Kong scenic spots, however, those are mostly spots with historical memory. It is worth to visit, because Hong Kong is a city of life, but old stuff are not keeping well. Non government organization are very indeed to keep the historical information of the city.

This is a good chance for everybody to revisit and remember those good day in our daily life.



This is a typical scene of old style apartment. This may currently exist in some old district.











This is the entrance of the old Wan Chai Market, it is going to be demolish, so there is a banner of protest of the new market arrange there.





This is an old-style hair-dressing stall located at open area.

Not only is this exhibition a very artful way of displaying a lot of the memories of HK, every stall is carefully and thoughtfully thought out, not one detail is missed, close your eyes and you can imagine a live person using the stall for business on the streets of HK. Every aspect of the particular trade is all laid out in miniature, nothing was amiss. Definitely worth stopping by, not just to glance and exclaim a WOW but to go through every item, the detailing, the every little threading for every little goldfish in the pond is worth going, WOW! And still be amazed at the very last item.
