Hard To Say Goodbye

Wah Fu Estate, with its ocean views, spectacular sunsets, fresh sea breezes and a Pok Fu Lam address, is not a luxury residential complex but a public housing estate with 18 concrete blocks. When it welcomed its first low-income residents in 1967, the area was a remote backwater. Now with land scarce and housing in short supply, Wah Fu faces what some consider to be long-overdue revelopment. Still, many residents will miss the old days and the ties that bind in this old Hong Kong community.
