A look into neon signs, the shining legacy of Hong Kong

A look into neon signs, the shining legacy of Hong Kong

Bzzt, bzzt, bzzt… In a city that never sleeps, neon signs illuminate a gorgeous mosaic: neon burns red, argon lavender, krypton bright blue, and helium orange. Back in the 1970s, they shone bright and brilliant and were once synonymous with the city’s prosperity. For the past two decades, however, its prosperous glaze has been ebbing fast, leaving behind a dismal-looking asphalt jungle. Jive Lau is a neon sign artist based in Hong Kong who creates neon-sign artworks in every possible form; Cardin Chan is the manager of Tetra Neon Exchange, a non-profit organisation dedicated to researching, preserving, and restoring Hong Kong's neon signs. Speaking with them, we uncover the neon sign's history, tradition, and glowing affair with Hong Kong.

Completed in 1952, North Point‚Äôs State Theatre ‚Äď formerly called the Empire Theatre ‚Äď was once a lively venue where some of the world‚Äôs greatest artists, bands, and troupes performed; and a cinema which screened numerous international and local blockbusters.

Mido Cafe reopens in Yau Ma Tei following temporary closure

Mido Cafe has officially reopened! Following their previous announcement just a few months prior that the restaurant would be closing its doors, the cha chaan teng has recently reopened once again on October 28, with a notice on their front door that read ‚ÄúWe said we‚Äôd definitely meet again‚ÄĚ, referencing their previous farewell notice which ended with the sentence ‚ÄúIf fate favours us, we‚Äôll definitely meet again‚ÄĚ.¬† Mido Cafe had temporarily closed during Hong Kong‚Äôs fifth pandemic wave. The cafe later reopened in May, before once again announcing its closure in July. After the news broke, many took to the internet to have their say. Some expressed their dissatisfaction with Mido Cafe's decline in food quality and service in recent years, while others reminisced on times when they visited to take snaps for Instagram.¬† Although there may be mixed opinions about this famous local cha chaan teng, with its stained glass windows, ceiling fans, and authentic cha chaan teng dishes, Mido Cafe is certainly a landmark in the city, one that welcomes foodies and shutterbugs from Hong Kong and across the globe.
