Now: Many Hong Kong citizens are living in small houses. A research study reported that Hong Kong’s household crowding index is the 3rd highest in the world after Dhaka in Bangladesh and Mumbai in India.
Here: Hung Hom is one of the old districts in Hong Kong. Recently, the opening of Ho Man Tin and Hung Hom railways has attracted more single persons and small families to move in. The lack of space for a washing machine in sub-divided units and small flats in the district leads to the rise of laundromats. In the Bulkeley Street of Hung Hom, six 24-hour laundromats are launched in a street of just 200 metres. Days in, days out, in sunny or rainy days, people constantly do their laundry and turn the laundromat a place to gather. This episode follows the steps of the people in the neighborhood and documents their daily lives, including their struggles and solutions.
