Grandma Poon


Resident of Causeway Bay

“I was born on Lockhart Road back in 1933. I was 20 years old when I was sent to Cuba to be married and have a family. We came back in 1960 and later bought property in Causeway Bay with the money we made from our supermarket in Santiago, Cuba. Our lives revolve around Causeway Bay and I come to the markets in Bowrington Road every day. When I was younger, I used to come and play mahjong every day with my aunt who lives upstairs in the building behind where I’m standing now.”
