Time Out says

Fung Kat Heung is a Hakka village located near Au Tau on Old Castle Peak Road in Yuen Long. There is a Grade II historic building, where the Chinese general Shen Hong-ying escaped from Hong Kong after his defeat in the early Republic of China and lived in seclusion with his family and relatives. Shen Hong-ying changed the name of this village to Fung Kat, to represent every bit of bad luck turning into good luck. The four characters (宣威馳譽) by Chinese politician Li Yuan-hong still hang in the living room of the general’s house.

The General’s House has a history of nearly 90 years. It comprises three connecting houses, the Shum Ancestral Hall, the General’s House and Hip Wai House, with a total of two floors. The descendants of the Shum family still live here, so if you are lucky, you may even meet some of the descendants of the Shum family who will share the real and genuinely touching stories about the lives of these historical figures.
