Spacious

Ching Shu Hin Guest House, Ping Shan, Hong Kong view map

The dressing table is the only remaining furniture
in this spacious guest room on the ground floor.

From the mirror of the dressing table,
you can see a staircase connects to the mezzanine floor.

The window is narrow and installed high
to provide enough security against theft.
It reflects not only the high criminal rate
but also the extreme disparity between the rich and the poor in that period.
