Wong Tai Sin Temple
It is common for HK people to search for a spiritual answer by visiting Wong-Tai-Sin Temple. The journey begins with symbolically contributing to the god in the form of putting coins into specified donation box. The clear clinking sound produced and echoed when the coin hit the steel container akin to the god acknowledged his worshippers’ arrival. Some worshippers are bringing glowing incense sticks to the main altar at a Taoism Ritual background music; while some are kneeling humbly and shaking a bamboo canister containing fortune sticks, attempting to divine their futures. The cohesive rhythm of fortune sticks shaking is impactful to the environment—human are no longer the passive receptor of sound, but a CO-WRITER, together shaping the environment, represented by sound, architecture, etc. Human’s cultural engagement endows the place with identity and thus builds responsive relationship with the surrounding. This is conducive to achieve sustainability in cultural landscape.

"Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tin Sin Temple, 2 Chuk Yuen Road, Chuk Un"
WTS Temple is vast temple always crowed with tourist. My first impression of WTS Temple is that it has a really peculiar smell because visitors are burning the incense sticks. I almost cannot open my eye because of the smoke! As I walk closer to the main altar, I heard some repetitive sound of people shaking a bamboo container. I saw many visitors kneel down on the triangular shape cushion, to make a wish. I heard an old women wishing for her good health. The most interesting activity is to shake the bamboo cylinder, we have to shake it for a long time until a number stick falls out. After that, this number stick is exchanged for a piece of paper. Finally, people will move to the booth decode the meaning of the words on the paper. Such a fun experience going there.

"Lower Ngua Tau Kok Estate, Kwun Tong, Hongkong"
It is the distinct and resonant sound from the ‘Study Rooms’ which comes to my ear every time I walk along the footbridge in Lower Ngua Tau Kok Estate. It was rather annoying at its nature yet I find it interesting and inspiring, one part due to the preservation of signature cultural activity, one part due to that seniors are able to gather and bond together. It is nice to have friends to hang out with when one gets old. Accompanied the sound of chess is the sound of laughter in a relaxed atmosphere.

Kowloon Bay
In Hong Kong, the most exciting days are festivals. However, many traditional customs of celebration have been changed. We used to enjoy the sound of festival celebration but it has gradually vanished from our life. Recently, I came across the Chinese New Year celebration of dragon and lion dance, which seemed to bring me back to the story in the depth of my memory. In history, people prayed for the blessing of gods by dance with dragon and lion on festival. Although some residents complained the noise, I insisted that the dragon and lion dance contain its unique content. It reflects the culture of the residents, and it plays an important role in shaping social consciousness and recreating the common memory of people. In addition, it is an important part of the local urban soundscape and an important symbol of our personal identity and sense of belonging.
