Luxurious Junk Bay Housing

We could see Junk Bay (將軍澳) to our right when we were hiking up Junk Peak.  Towards the waterfront we could see a line of buildings standing like a humongous fence facing Shau Ki Wan and Chai Wan at the eastern end of the Victoria Harbour. It is a heavily promoted, exorbitantly expensive private housing estate.  It has great views - for now. 


However, it is sitting on an enormous old land fill (垃圾堆填區)
.  This is one of the places where Hong Kong dumps its garbage, and then covers them up.   Looking around, one realizes that the estate has land fills in front, behind, to the right and to the left.  Some have been covered up recently with green grass, and some parts have even been landscaped - making them look like precious parkland. 


Some are obviously still in use.  When we get closer to the “active” landfill later, we could smell it, even though we were on top of the mountain. 

I have seen people who were forced to make a living on garbage dumps in Cambodia.  What makes people (who can surely afford to live elsewhere) pay so much to live on a land fill?  Perhaps only in Hong Kong can this happen?  Or may be not.

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard
work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.

Many thanks
