“You can leave Hong Kong, but it will never leave you.”
Nury Vittachi, Hong Kong: The City of Dreams

“Stories are wonderful, enjoyable, and scrumptious things. In the old days, they were served on thin plates called pages. You ate them with your eyes. And they didn't go down to your tummy, like normal food. No, they went into a dream machine inside your head.”
Nury Vittachi, The Day It Rained Letters
