Halloween is just around the corner.
Not everyone likes partying out all night long. Some of us prefer staying at home binging horror movies. Let’s be real, aren’t haunted mansions, creepy clowns and demon nuns getting kinda cliché? As staff of a company that champions storytelling more than anything else, we think that film is a magical medium that brings individuals with different stories together. Instead of flicks that only stimulate our senses with lazy Michael Bay-esque CGI, we prefer a good storytelling experience with a narrative that explores different sides of humanity.
Hong Kong has long been a paradise for Chinese filmmakers to explore their wildest, darkest, most macabre ideas. As a result, our city has created some of Asia’s best horror movies that often brings Western elements and Chinese folklore together. That is why we have shortlisted the following five movies for this festive occasion. Not only would they make your heart race, each flick tells you about traditional superstitions such as karma, reincarnation and sinning that would leave you unsettled for many days…
Hong Kong is a fishing-village-turned-metropolis where old meets new, east meets west…
Yes, we know you secretly rolled your eyes to this. Maybe you know Hong Kong like the back of your hand and think “Hah, I don’t need to read some amateur blogpost about my city!”. Well guess what – you actually know Hong Kong a lot less than you expect! This time, we snooped around our family and friends, asking them if there are any bewildering mysteries that even us Hongkongers don’t have answers to!
If you have a bunch of people from different parts of the world, where would you need to put them, in order to figure out which one is a Hongkonger?
本地文化企業「活現香港」（Walk in Hong Kong）呼籲政府把保育戰後歷史建築（下稱「現代建築」）列為香港文物保育政策中的優先處理項目。具體建議如下：
Walk in Hong Kong, a local cultural enterprise, calls on the government to make the protection of post-war historic buildings, which is also commonly referred to as “modern architecture”, a policy priority for heritage conservation in Hong Kong.
Specifically, as we have called for in submissions to the public consultations respectively for the 2018-2019 Policy Address and 2019-2020 Budget, the government should allocate sufficient resources to the Development Bureau (DevB), the Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO), the Antiquities Advisory Board (AAB) and any other related parties to undertake a territory-wide survey of historic buildings and sites completed post-1950 to identify, assess and grade those worthy of protection.
