Footnotes

Kwok drew and wrote about everyday life on Moon Street: the six-storey tanglou or tenement building he lives in, his dog Docker, his partner Geoff, his local neighbours Cliff and Amanda, their rooftop garden plants Rabbit, Poodle and Skeleton, their local cha chaan teng and the group of old women who feed stray cats.

“Grandma Lam is the only person who feeds stray cats every day in this community, even storms can’t stop her,” he wrote. “After dinner she leaves her home and goes to visit and feed every stray cat.”

“I wanted to document their lives and preserve the human emotions within,” Kwok said. ➡︎
