Ms. Chang's Office

When googling on keywords, some unusual items can turn up. So it was that I came across a press release from the 4th Literature Festival in Hong Kong dated June 22, 2002. 

The exhibition also features traces of Chinese writers in various places of Hong Kong as well as the look of Hong Kong as described in the authors' writings. Public can identify interesting locations such as the hall where Lu Xun gave his lectures and places where Eileen Chang wrote her scripts.

Well, since the festival took place in 2002 when I was not around, I have no idea where those Eileen Chang places were said to be. But I can guarantee you that they did not feature every possible place that she wrote in. In fact, they probably missed the place that she spent the most time at.

Take a look at the photo below. It is the supplementary bathroom in my apartment used by the domestic helpers. Way back in the early 1960s, this was in fact a small bedroom, which belonged to me as a small child. Then one day, Eileen Chang showed up from the United States and took over the room to work on movie scripts. For several months, I was exiled to sleep on the sofa in the living room. So how much admission fee should I charge people to take a look at this bathroom?
