窗子大廈 guess what building this is

從天星碼頭走向彌敦道,抬頭看到這方正的大廈外牆,排整的窗戶,居然不少敞開。雖然已是仲秋時分,大氣溫度攝氏三十有多,在此高度人為空氣霸權的城市,繁華大街中看到開窗,給我驚喜。

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.

然後留意地點,才醒覺這棟端正的大樓竟是重慶大廈。從前邋耷的外表已經換臉了。一絲安慰是那些敞開的窗戶,輸出人氣。到底重慶大廈還是有點個性,不是窗戶緊閉的。

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.
