Stephanie Teng Kicks-off 'Body of Work'

Hong Kong-based photographer Stephanie Teng opens her solo exhibition 'A Body
of Work' at Eaton House. Born out of a frustration at the lack of diverse
representation of body shapes in mainstream media, Teng, as an Asian woman
growing up in a relatively homogenous and hyper weight conscious city like
Hong Kong, feels normalcy always came in sizes too small.

Through exploring the photographic process as a form of therapy and empowerment,
Teng began studying the psychological impacts of body image starting with her
own experience. The exhibition is at Eaton House, 4/F, through 7 April.

Hong Kong Students Join Global Strike for Climate Action

Hundreds of Hong Kong students join the global strike for climate action, as they march
from Chater Garden to the Government headquarters, demanding action on climate change.

Mandy Farewells Yue Man Square

Mandy, dressed in a traditional historical Chinese dress, says farewell to
Yue Man Sqaure, the once bustling town centre of Kwun Tong which is due
for demolition and redevelopment. She is both nostalgic and sad about
the fate of the playground of her youth.

A closely-knit community of residents and businesses were forced out by the
Urban Renewal Authority (URA) with inadequate compensation. Many fear that
Kwun Tong will lose its character and become unaffordable to the grassroot
citizens. This is an end of an era for Kwun Tong and Hong Kong.

Sad Goodbye to Yue Man Square

Yue Man Sqaure, the once bustling town centre of Kwun Tong, is now almost
deserted. Most residents and businesses have moved out due to a huge
Kwun Tong redevelopment project by the Urban Renewal Authority (URA),
leaving the Square with empty, old buildings that will soon be demolished.

A closely-knit community of local small businesses and shops were forced to
shut down and sadly scattered asunder. The area will be replaced by new
buildings with high rents. The compensation offered by the URA doesn't
allow most to relocate within Kwun Tong after the redevelopment.
Many fear that Kwun Tong will lose its character and become
unaffordable by grassroot citizens.

This is a heart-breaking end of an era for Kwun Tong and Hong Kong.
