最近終於認真細看。名字屬於一對父子中醫師 – 馬麗江和馬威宗。兩人的名字都在香港的中醫名冊上，絕對不過氣。
this low-rise building is old and quite torn in looking. but it commands people attention along this route between prince edward and tai po road because of the several signage with imposing chinese calligraphy. they mainly tell the names of two mr ma.
for a long time i thought ‘ma lai kong’ and ‘ma wei chung’are a company name that probably was closed down many years ago.
incorrect assumption. the fact is that ma lai kong and ma wei chung are father and son and both are registered chinese doctors in hong kong. ma lai kong actually was a representative of the kowloon chinese doctor union when a meeting was called upon five main chinese doctor associations in hong kong in 1948 to discuss the establishment of a united union. another fun fact found online, a building with the signage reads doctor ma lai kong appeared in an 1966 b&w cantonese film named translated as “heartbroken rose”. the place was around mong kok. i watch the clip on you tube, the building seems the same. think about that, ma wei chung probably was not born then. but now, the building is carrying signage of not one but two doctors’ names.
