[FULL] Mi-VolTra: Cultivate Friendly Social Hub @ Tai O (24 June)


Tai O, a place we find it strange yet familiar with.

It’s familiar when mentioning its nickname “Venice in the Orient”, many Hongkongers would like to spend a relaxing day in Tai O during the weekend. People could shift their focus from concrete jungle to Stilt Houses permeated with fishers’ atmosphere. You could also try an array of renowned local snacks here, charcoal egg-waffles, tofu custard, to name but a few.

It’s strange when most of the visitors do not have a chance to probe into the community of Tai O, nor getting to know the indigenous villagers who have been witnessing the changes here.

In June 2018, let’s explore Tai O with us! We are going to roast sweet potatoes for the elderly who live nearby and listen to their stories throughout the years. Meanwhile, we will also construct a recreational spot for the elderly so that they could relax and hang out there in the future.
