Shoes: Pain and Pleasure

Tiny shoes worn by Chinese women with bound feet, the custom of applying tight
binding to the feet of young girls to modify the shape and size of their feet.
It was practiced in China from the Song dynasty until the early 20th century,
and bound feet were considered a status symbol as well as a mark of beauty.
Foot binding limited the mobility of women, and resulted in lifelong disabilities
for most of its subjects.

'Shoes: Pleasure and Pain', an exhibition at Pacific Place that combines
anthropology and art to explore how shoes can cause both pain as well as
pleasure for the wearer. Over 140 pairs of shoes from around the world and
from as far back as the 14th century, including footwear created by iconic
designers. Through 28 October.

Thousands Protest Controversial Huge Reclamation Plan

Thousands rally against Chief Executive's controversial proposal for 1,700 hectares
of reclaimed land at an estimated cost of up to HK$500 billion (US$63.8 billion).
Critics argue that budget overrun would easily double the government estimates
and exhaust the entire fiscal reserve of Hong Kong plus being environmentally harmful.

Families with young children, senior citizens, young people and political
parties, are among protesters marching from Causeway Bay to the government
headquarters. Chief Executive Carrie Lam is also critised for ignoring the
government-appointed Task Force on Land Supply who had yet to present its
findings on a recently concluded public consultation exercise.

Protest against Political Screening of Lau Siu-lai

Disqualified pro-democracy legislator Lau Siu-lai attends a protest, after her
bid to stand in a by-election had been rejected for advocating self-determination,
together with her 'Plan-B' replacement former legislator Lee Cheuk-yan outside
the government headquarters.

Lau was not given an opportunity to defend her candidacy with authorities
before the decision. Agnes Chow of Demosisto party was banned from
contesting a separate by-election in January, fuelling fears of tightening
political 'red lines' by Beijing that could deny Hong Kong’s disaffected
young people from participating in official political establishment.

Historical Red House

Hung Lau (Red House), a Grade I historic building, was built between 1905 and 1910
on former farmland in Pak Kok, Tuen Mun. It was used by the Hsing Chung Hui (Revive
China Society) as a base for revolutionary activities against the Qing dynasty.

It is named for its red-pigmented external surface rendering. The two-storey
house is a mix of Chinese and Western influences. Adjacent to the house is a
garden commemorating Dr Sun Yat-sen who founded the Republic of China and one
of few places in Hong Kong where the flag of the Republic is hoisted continuously.

a visa to Mallet 'sets a terrible precedent for Hong Kong's reputation as a place
where the rule of law applies and where freedom of speech is protected by law.'
