Photographed in black and white film on January 6, 2020 at Kwai Leung House in Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estate, Kwun Tong

On January 6, 2020 early in the money, at Block 3 in the Ngau Tau Kok resettlement estate (where Kwai Leung House stands today), a 25-year old man asked his wife for money in the flat of his mother-in-law where he also lived in. But he was turned down and desperately attempted to set fire. His mother-in-law and brother-in-law were woken by the noise and fortunately managed to put out the fire with a quilt but were hurt by the man with a bottle. The man then escaped.
