Off-campus Outlets

  1. Man Kee Cart Noodle

Man Kee has been a well-known restaurant for hall residents to go for a quick supper. This local restaurant offers a typical “make-to-order” Hong Kong-style noodle where you can pick your own choices of food combination.  We call this che jai meen here which literally means “cart noodles” because of its humble origin as a cheap cuisine served for the lower class on food carts during the 1950’s.

Opening hours:
Daily: 24 hours
Location: No. 121, Fuk Wing Street, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon

  1. Sushi-Chicken

Just by the name, people might confuse this with Japanese cuisine. Sushi-chicken is driven from the Chinese pronunciation of “tearing chicken meat by hand”, you can choose either rice or instant noodle for the mains. A must-try near the campus!

Opening hours: Random (So basically it’s by fate whether you can have it or not!)
Location: Shop G94-95, Pak Tin Shopping Centre, Shek Kip Mei, Kowloon

Let’s Start from Here—–An experience of the Residence Tutor Training Camp / 從心出發,勇往直前—-宿舍導師訓練營體驗記


It was an unusual Saturday afternoon in a former British army camp where over 60 people, including Residence Masters, SRO staff, Residence Tutors and I were standing still under Hong Kong‘s unforgiving heat. The commander’s voice was really loud and powerful. He was explaining to us the rules of the camp, mainly about how we should behave and self-discipline in the 2-day camp from 29-30 July 2017. Thereafter, we were given 30 minutes to go to our barrack – a big room with 15 bunk beds – where we would sleep that night. That was pretty much how the Residence Tutor Training Camp began. For the next 18 hours, we would be trained like an army.

The first and last sessions were workshops about the roles of Residence Tutors and case studies. Together with our Residence Masters, Dr. Ben LI of Jockey Club Humanity Hall, and Dr. Roger KWAN of Jockey Club Harmony Hall, Mr. Wilson LAM, Director of SRO, enthusiastically gave a welcoming speech and explained the purpose of the camp. In these two sessions, Wilson also defined our duties and roles, illustrated different cases that might happen in the future and explained how Residence Tutors should deal with them. We then had small-group discussions to brainstorm on some real caring and disciplinary cases.

For the outdoor activities, the camp participants were divided into four groups according to our halls. Some of them really challenged your fear and the others relied on teamwork. High Wall was one of the scariest to me in which everyone in the team had to climb up a wall with nothing except the support of our teammates who carried one of us at the bottom and pulled him/her up from the top. It was so terrifying hanging up there without touching the ground, so I just closed my eyes, relaxed and trusted my teammates. Despite my shaky legs and fast heartbeat, I eventually made it. We all made it to the top because of the good team work!

The 2-day camp, along with all the obstacles, definitely shaped and strengthened our friendships, at least between me and my Hall 9 (Sir Gordon and Lady Ivy Wu Hall) tutors. This camp was a crucial beginning of our one-year duty as Residence Tutors because it brought us closer and taught us how to trust each other and to build up a good teamwork. In order to create an engaging residence community, it has to start with the solid foundation of residence tutors. The 2-day training camp was definitely a great kick start!
