Saw my uncle on TVB main evening news yesterday, talking about developments in Lam Tsuen near the Wishing Tree. Since I am on the subject of the wishing tree, just saw this in BBC News online piccies section.

By the way, there is another wishing tree (I think know as lovers tree). My aunt told me to make a wish regarding my love life, as in, I want to get married soon. Guess what, I was engaged soon after that back in Ireland. I know, it's all just coincidence, but it's a nice story to tell.
