The "Fai Chun" Master

During Chinese New Year, people will buy some “fai chun”, which is a traditional decoration with different phrases symbolizing good luck and prosperity, and put in the doorway. However, handwritten “fai chun” can rarely be found in Hong Kong nowadays since it is gradually replaced by printed one. This master set up the “fai chun” every year with the hope of preserving such culture.
