Title:Dawn in The Mountain City

Artist Statement: 

"Rediscovering Cho Yiu Community: A Journey of the Senses"


As the birds sing in endless melody,

And scents of flowers, trees, and soil fill the air,


Down the mountain, animals with gratitude,

Bring baskets of fresh dim sum with loving care.

Shall we sip on fragrant tea to let your worries spill,

Or savor a bubble tea to delight?


Behold the sunrise of Lai King Hill,

Feel the softness of clouds and the warmth of sunlight.


More than a landscape painting to behold,

It's the warmth in the community untold,


Where grown-ups live with hearts of gold,

And children dream of a future to unfold.


May the scenery and hearts be bright,

As the morning sun shines with its light.

The clothes in front of the window were blown by the morning breeze.
Look out the window at the sunrise over Lai King Mountain and feel the warmth of the sun.

What's in the teapot? Seniors like to yum cha, while the students like bubble milk tea. This teapot is specially designed for both generations!

You can see the village houses in Lai King Mountain.
It turned out to be Cho Yiu Chuen.

Cho Yiu Chuen is built on the mountain. The students imagined that there could be a Ferris wheel of happiness on Lai King Mountain!
