Event: Memories of King Kowloon

The day I returned from the exhibition, I was already filled with enthusiasm to share with everyone how magnificent this exhibition is. After uploading the photos on Facebook, I couldn't help but post and share my own albums and "like" my own albums.
King Kowloon's Calligraphy @ Hung Hom
I'm going crazy with this exhibition and I have already visited it twice (and wept twice)! I will definitely go there many more times.

It is an exhibition that you must go to see it for yourself so that you will not have regret for the rest of your life!

It is not only a collection of memories of someone who wrote everywhere around Hong Kong, and he was definitely NOT a lunatic (in fact, through his video interview, you can see that he is much smarter than you think), but of the Hong Kong heritage

His calligraphy took fashion design into a whole new level, his influence is especially great in Japan!

So this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for all of us to learn what we have missed, to see the King Kowloon that we have never got to know.
