感謝城市日記的相助,大家終於為超記榮休前幫老闆和鋪頭做了一個記錄。

在上環東街的超記車,是一口生活隊員每天工作的必經之地。由早上九時半開始,每次經過,老闆Mackey如果不是忙於整車,都會閒聊幾句。記得去年夏天,當一口在街上努力做設計比賽的模型時,老闆特地提點我們油漆用得不對,出來效果會不夠順滑,還送我們一盒舊鍋釘,讓我們用在傢俱裝飾。

一條每天經過的路,特別的是每天閒聊的鄰居,這種城市氣氛不容易找到。雖然相處時間不是很久,但一口亦非常珍惜。用了一個月的時間,給這家鄰居預備了小小的榮休禮物。希望老闆會繼續享受退休後的玩樂生活!

一口叫這個項目做Gifted Hong Kong - 因為我們相信這些人物、故事和空間就是香港的一部份。我們希望由超記車開始,可以一步一步為我們的城市故事和空間做記錄。

Our special thanks to Urban Diary for documenting Chiu Kee with us. 

Chiu Kee is located on Tung Street, on the path to Onebite of Life workplace. Chatting with Mackey, the owner of Chiu Kee, has been an enjoyable daily routine for One Biters. Our team has spent 1 month to document the spatial arrangement of Chiu Kee and the trolleys designed by Mackey. We call this project Gifted Hong Kong, as we believe our city is gifted because of all these figures and stories. We hope Chiu Kee will be our beginning to document these unique spatial narratives in our city.
