(Your report is fluent and comprehensive. One example I would like you to cite in your article is the renovation project that ASHK has done on the old site of the British army barrack in Admiralty. You could describe in details what the ASHK has done to painstakingly preserve the facade and the architectural structure of the historical military explosives magazine while at the same time revitalize it into a contemporary office with a pavilion, a roof garden, a theatre and a gallery. To protect a rare breed of fruit bats, the ASHK has even gone at length to alter the design of the bridge to zig-zag around the trees which have become the habitat of the bats. Anecdotes like these would help the readers to appreciate the aspect of heritage preservation and at the same time, make your story more interesting. )

The Executive Director of Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) said not only the government had a role to play in preserving heritages, but also the citizens, when attending a university speech yesterday.


To define heritage, S. Alice Mong said everybody had a different explanation on heritage. She thought the word “heritage” is not just about old buildings; “living heritage” is also a kind of heritage.


“For me, I love picnic and enjoy living with greenery and green trails; I think those are Hong Kong heritages,” she added, “I am glad to see those can be preserved.”


Mong believed that everyone should have the responsibility on preserving heritage and people needed to act closely with the government. “The government definitely has a role to play in preserving heritage, but people also need to tell the government their opinion on what they would like to preserve,” said Mong.


She also said we need not to rely on the government to do the preserving work, “we all can preserve our heritages.” She gave an example that packing up trashes on the polluted beaches or trails was a kind of green preservation.


S. Alice Mong was the Director of the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) from 2009 to 2011, worked for the entire expansion project of MOCA. She is now the Executive Director of Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) from 2012.
