華豐大廈 new lucky house

2013.11.26  | 佐敦道13 jordan road

華豐大廈就矗立在佐敦道與彌敦道的交匯,是一個非常地標。總覺得他很醜,但更禁不住對他三番四次行注目禮。在這極度繁華的路口,他的老調、雜亂,倒顯得個性鮮明。

觀視建築面上的文字、招牌,已經有萬花筒之感:賓館、健身中心、中醫、跌打、同鄉會、同學會。網上搜尋,又一堆色情服務的介紹,真箇龍蛇混雜,有點九龍寨城的縮小版。

the name already tells a little about this building – new lucky house – a name and a place belongs to few generations back.

every time i come across this big junction of nathan road crosses jordan road, i can’t help saying quietly, what an ugly building. yet every time i spend many moments studying this big awkward fellow. there’s a strange charisma about it.

it is so busy – the colours, the many chinese characters painted on the façade and signboards hanging around; and these won’t be found on “current” buildings, thus a nostalgic ambience flowing around.

it is fun to read this building – there are many guesthouses, the macho chest is the signboard of a gym, then chinese medicine clinics, province and county associations, etc.
