    Default Former Bar, Ho Chung, Hong Kong, August 2017


    This was a bit of a bonus as the main draw here was the nearby former Asia TV studios (sadly a fail - more on that in future reports).

    No history on this place. There are many HK equivalents of our UK derps. Sometimes parent pass away and their kids don't want to live out in 'the sticks' as the Sai Kung region of Hong Kong is seen as by many. Sometimes parents die and have no children/close relatives to leave property to.

    Second guessing here but I think the demise of this bar could have been linked to the closure of the ATV studios and a subsequent drop in its clientele.

    Anyhow - nothing too dramatic but got enough pictures to merit a report.

    Full frontal:

    Jeans hung up to dry but now suffering from rising damp:

    Loyally waiting for the master that never returns:

    Aha, you're in Hong Kong so we will be getting pictures of some interesting derelict buildings with a Chinese theme. As you know I like your explores in Malaya and Hong Kong and this one is a goody. I also like the glass bricks. But it must have been a nice building at one time, even a roof terrace with lights.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
