Project Statement : At Wu Kai Sha, a pier which appears to be like another other beaches in Hong Kong, comes alive at 6am every morning. The ocean is filled with seniors from around the neighbourhood or even across town. Some go there to swim to keep up with their physical mobility, some go to train for triathlons and ocean marathons, some don't even know how to swim but bring a float board with them so they can do stretching in water, some go there to connect and chat with new found friends, and some take their grandchildren there and teach them swimming. This pier has a Chinese nickname – 蟹伯樂園 – it means a waterpark/playground for the “crab” seniors. And at 6am, the sea is filled with them which looks like lots of crabs swimming in the ocean.
Location: Wu Kai Sha, Hong Kong
