heading to nathan road after a star ferry ride to tst; looking up and immediately i was attracted by this façade, with many “real (new buildings these days designed with windows not supposed to open)” windows which are also neat in looking. giving me more joy is that quite many of them are opened. this city is already conquered by air-conditioning. i always feel sad looking up to buildings and find all windows are closed.
Then. I realized. that’s chungking mansions, after a facelift. filthy and shabby no more, at least not on the outside. the opened windows, luckily to me, feels that the sense of human is still around.
