Mei Foo Station

Mei Foo Station
One thing great about Hong Kong is its very convenient public transit system, which is bilingual in Chinese and English, including all sign posts, written materials and public announcements. You cannot get lost in Hong Kong's MTR network as long as you pay attention.

My first agenda after arriving back in Hong Kong from my mother's hometown in China was to meet up with my Hong Kong friends for dinner. I took the light rail from my brother's apartment to Tin Shui MTR station, where I took the metro to Mei Foo Station, where the restaurant was.

My destination is Mei Foo Sun Chuen Stage 8, so I need to follow signs to Exit A.

Mei Foo Sun Chuen, literally meaning Mei Foo (Chinese name of Mobil Oil) New Estate, was Hong Kong's first private housing estate. It was originally developed by Mobil Oil as the land was formerly owned by the American oil company. Launched in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the massive real estate development consists of 99 high-rise apartment buildings and is one of Hong Kong's most sought-after places to live even today. Some 70,000 to 80,000 people live here, which also has a major metro station, a bus terminus and massive shopping malls.
