Kowloon Motorcycle Diaries

Richard and I dashed to To Kwa Wan in the wee hours of the morning to film the ice-cream vendors' last official day of operation.
Although I didn't grow up in Hong Kong, I couldn't feel attached but was a little disappointed to see these venerable hawkers' careers coming to an end. Then again, the hawkers themselves seemed quite detached when I talked to them, only the shop owner Mr. Shek was up-in-arms about it.
I wonder how yesterday's candlelight vigil turned out. It's amazing how the public cherishes certain things when they're about to axed. That goes for the media as well!
