One of them is 70-year-old Law Kam Shue, who has been there for over five decades. While his family and friends moved into the city many years ago, Law proudly says he’ll stay in Po Toi, no matter what.

Curious...the first crab he caught, he threw back because he said they rarely eat it. He called it a bread crab but the captioning had it as cancer pagurus. Cancer pagurus is edible & is reddish brown color which that definitely wasn't. The other videos have minor caption/translation issues as well.

He basically having the greatest life compared to some of old people that live in Hong Kong... He have big house to entertain him rather than live in the cage (bcause the living expenses dem expensive)... Everyone might think that he is a weird loner but at least he live in his fullest life rather than living in the cage in the busy city. #imho #mindmygrammars

Good place for a nice seafood lunch after a day out on a ferry or sailing. You can get there by ferry from Stanley pier or your own private boat.

This is true meaning living in the island free from all the burden of life. Make the best of it living in fresh environment free from all the burdens.

+عفيف موقع الاحمد But the thing is, there's more pros in the country side if you're talking about overall health and welfare. That island in particular seems to be doing fine in terms of food and basic living. I guarantee you once the young people from the countryside that left to go to the cities grow old, they'd want to come back to retire in the countryside. If they didn't it's because they have too much debts, problems, ECT. That it's not possible for them to come back
Lots of islanders move to cities because they find it boring, you'd be surprised. Same with small rural towns, just because we never experienced it doesn't mean it's as romanticized as it may be.

Catching and eating fishes does not seem to be environmentally progressive if south china morning post is trying to advocate.

communist locusts will flock to this island in no time.
Lanying Liu (22 days ago)
+Gela A I believe I saw your commentary in one of the Elliot Rodger videos. Is that possible?
Gela A (22 days ago)
First of all China is not communism, not even socialism, it is full scale capitalism. You need real education. You are the locust because you are a pro-colonialist, an insect loyal to British royal. The Chinese term locust consists of two words royal and insect, so that makes you a locust. Stop sniffing glue, your brain is malfunctioning and about to die completely.
Lanying Liu (22 days ago)
No time? Tell us then exactly when the supposedly communist locusts will storm the island. Not many of us are as idiotic as you.
Gela A (1 month ago)
+TK Baha How much glue have you pro-Amurderican punks sniffed today? Each year in Hong Kong over 30 million visits by mainland Chinese tourists. How many of them have you seen openly pissing on the street? Probably none, maybe a pre-teen kid or two. Speak loudly? So it is OK for White tourists speak loudly in English language when they are travelling in China yelling at Chinese sellers, but it is not OK for Chinese speak loudly in Chinese in their own country? Looks like your brain is seriously damaged by sniffing glue. Why don't you try go into Black hoods or Mexican hoods in Los Angeles and tell the Blacks or Mexicans that they should not talk so loud and stop pissing everywhere in public, see what happens to your bones.
TK Baha (1 month ago)
+Gela A Well behave? the communist locusts, pee and poop everywhere in HK, cut in line, spitting all the time, talk so loud with no respect of others, you call it well behave? brain dead idiot.

This man has everything he wants, needs and his happy. This is paradise, stay away from the concrete jungle
Christopher Law (1 month ago)
Damn right do I feel the same here too. I would also live in a wonderful paradise with beautiful seaside scenery than to live in a packed crowded environment with noise stress and pollution. Well I guess the motto of modern life is to make as much money show off and compete with the rest of the world.

satria amiluhur Too bad for money and modern shit. If i were a Chinese living in the city and learned from my family that i have relative living there, i would save tons of money and move there.
