Au-yeung Ping-chi, owner of Bo Wah Effigies, recommends places to explore Sham Shui Po’s creative industries
A former design student, Au-yeung Ping-chi started helping out at his father’s paper effigies store after graduating from school. Although he currently lives in Yuen Long in the New Territories, Mr Au-yeung travels to Sham Shui Po almost every day and can often be found at Bo Wah, making paper offerings in the shape of modern-day consumer goods. “Even though this neighbourhood appears old and unglamorous, there’s a lot to eat, see and do here,” he says. For visitors, he recommends Sham Shui Po’s many shopping streets, including the always bustling Pei Ho Street. Those with a creative streak will also enjoy strolling down Yu Chau Street, Ki Lung Street and Nam Cheong Street, where they can shop for all sorts of materials for fun DIY projects.
