TVB & Hong Kong's "Housing Projects"
Just a spark of curiosity, what's the big deal with living in "Housing Projects" in Hong Kong. I notice TVB made a couple of series where the stories intertwine with living in the "housing projects".
In Life Made Simple Roger Kwok and Jessica Hsuan's character both lived in a "housing project community". Jessica's character seem to really bother living there, and she made it her business to do anything to get out of there. When she wanted to marry Bosco's character his mom looked down on her for living there. I must admit the housing from this series was pretty bad, but the housing project community in The Family Link looked good, similar to one in the picture above. Yet people still looked down on Sheren Tang, Cecilia Yip, Kiki Sheung's character alot in the beginning. Their houses look like an apartment complex or condos over here in the States. And really the "Projects" or better known as "The Ghetto" in the U.S. are 100 times worse.
So what kind of housing would be considered respectable in Hong Kong? The mansion in The Brink of Law? By the way, that mansion estate in that series, which I've seen before in some movies is like a dream house for me. I really want to live in Hong Kong one day, and I think the type of house in the Family Link looks like a good starter home for someone who just moved there and has only "starter budget". Would it be accurate to say a respectable housing community in Hong Kong would be the one liek in Welcome To The House? Whatever, just curious.
