Lots of Lion dances and Cantonese Opera performances to celebrate Tin Hau’s (the goddess of the sea) Birthday in Sai Kung! Rarely did I have this chance to sketch the temple from the elevated location inside the temporary Cantonese Opera Tent in front of the temple. As it's Tin Hau Birthday celebration, large red alters decorated with flowers, lanterns and ornaments were placed on two sides of the temple entrance. By the time I finished the sketch, the two alters were carried away from the temple in a ritual. It's really a special day for Sai Kung Tin Hau Temple.

A challenging sketch! I set out to sketch the Tin Hau Temple (Goddess of the Sea) in Sai Kung this afternoon but after applying the watercolours, the sky started drizzling! I first kept on drawing with my umbrella open but soon, the drizzling rain started to dissolve the watercolour and I had to find shelter to finish the sketch!

The earliest Christian cemetery in Hong Kong which all started at the beginning of the British colonial rule. Thos who rest here include British military personnels who died in the two world wars, early missionaries, the early elites and Mr Yeung Ku-Wan, who worked closely with Dr Sun Yat-sen but was assassinated in 1901 in Hong Kong by an agent sent by the Qing government.
