“We hope that Causeway Bay retains those special features that are so Hong Kong.
I miss that warm and homey feeling.”
There are eight cats here and at our old place, there were about 16. They’re really cute and people like them because they’re relaxed and lazy but have a lot of personality. Some people think they’re snobby but it’s because they are only close to people they feel familiar with so when they do finally show affection, it’s like you’re on a higher level because they’ve “chosen” you. When they cling to you, your heart just melts.
Rent in Causeway Bay has always been expensive! It’s a very different Causeway Bay now. Back then, there were many more independent boutiques but now there are more franchised or brand name stores and it’s really challenging for us. We’re really fighting on but we can’t afford to buy real estate. This is a passion of mine so we’re determined to continue with our business.
We hope that Causeway Bay retains those special features that are so Hong Kong. I miss that warm and homey feeling from more traditional stores such as wonton noodle shops, diners and bakeries. I grew up around here and we would recognise the little oldies around the area.
