Geometric Cubist

Wah Sang House of Wah Fu Estate in Aberdeen, seen from the geometric and cubist light well of
the government-subsidised public housing. Wah Fu means wealthy Chinese and is home to
more than 50,000 residents. It was completed in the 1968 to provide locals with affordable
housing with significantly improved social welfare in the wake of the 1967 riots.

Wah Fu Estate was the first public housing estate built with a township concept, with infrastructures
including schools, grocery stores, restaurants and banks. Wah Fu has Hong Kong's first public
library in a housing estate – the second public library after the one at the City Hall. It also has
the first elderly home and first car park inside a public housing estate.

Sunset over Wah Fu 'Eggette'

The waterfront of Waterfall Bay Park at Wah Fu Estate is an ideal place for watching sunset. One feels
fabulous as the sun sets with a golden glow while the sea breeze blows gently.

At low tide, the coast exposes a spherical rocky bed that looks like the Hong Kong street food
"eggette", thus named the "Wah Fu Eggette". It is best to check the tide information before
departure, and make sure the tide is below one metre at 17:00 - 19:00.

Most Haunted Abandoned Villa

Known as Hong Kong's most haunted abandoned villa, this multi-storey mansion is located in one
of the most upscale district on Hong Kong Island.

Built before WWII, it is said that the original owner went bankrupt. The second owner died in the
house. It is said that seven Catholic nuns were executed here during the Japanese occupation
and neighbours regularly complain about peculiar sounds.

A woman who lived here in the 70s said she often saw a 'ghost child' with thick matted hair
and wearing a white lace nightgown and heard her crying.
