即將遺忘
Almost Forgotten

  • 城市發展淡化過去的人事風物,人們的生活記憶隨時代褪色。面對即將來臨的遷拆,許多習以為常的即將消逝,居民的生活軌跡只有無情的消逝和不經意的遺忘。 這本書收集了一些有關舊觀塘的物件和故事,透過這書,喚醒人們即將被遺忘的記憶。
    City redevelopment is a common way to improve the living standard. Many things that are considered not up to standard become obsolete, no matter how attached the local people are to their community. The memory from the past living will fade as the links become broken. Things that existed for decades will disappear. When we become aware of this, we start to forget about them unintentionally. This book collects objects and stories that are very meaningful to the Kwun Tong residents as the district is undergoing redevelopment. This is a reminiscence and a look-back to the things that we took for granted.
