An Old Window in the New Territories

Updated:
Vintage window in an alleyway in Yuen Long.

I discovered another side of when I stepped out of the MRT at Yuen Long in the in February 2014. Not far from the station is an old neighbourhood, Yuen Long Kau Hui 元朗舊墟, tightly packed with traditional homes, many of them abandoned or in an advanced state of decay. Time seemed to slow as I wandered through the shadowed alleyways that served as streets for the hundreds of residents that called this place home.
