“Born in the later part of 97, I never got to experience Lai Yuen. For me, it is a place constructed by words and stories. … I would hear bits and pieces about the park and, somehow, it became part of my own childhood, part of my own memory.” (Pun Tsz-wai)「我出生於1997年的下半年，從未經驗過荔園是怎樣的。它是個由別人的字詞和故事合成的地方。一點一滴的聽著，荔園好像就是我自己的童年，是我個人的記憶。」– 潘子懷

FP writer Wai-leung Lai recalls… 只有最基本的資源也是日子的一種。活著總有生趣，就看你。那是當「缺乏豪華生活」未被化成統計，未被化作意識形態之前…。普通人的普通故事。
