荷李活道長生店 undertaker on hollywood road

2013.4.24 | 荷李活道 hollywood road

荷李活道這彎大樓,引人入勝,有民居、卜公體育會、時尚咖啡店、古玩店、長生店。

每次經過這區幾家長生店,看到一幢幢棺木,心安,死亡本是生活一部分,如斯自然。

this round-cornered old building embraces a variety of ‘human activities’. people live upstair. there is a historic sports club up there as well. a chic café is on the ground floor, as well as antique shops, and this undertaker.

it is a traditional “coffin shop”. a number of them are in this neighbourhood. death is a taboo to chinese but these coffin shops are really open to what they are selling. i somehow feel at ease every time passing by them. they tell me death is a matter of every day life.
