All CUHK students
‘Tung Sing’ is a sophisticated traditional Chinese calendar which guides the readers to reconcile with and outmaneuver the cosmic forces. In the past, many Hong Kong people would keep a ‘Tung Sing’ at home and check the suitable/ unsuitable things to do on each day. As time passes, young people no longer have the habit of using ‘Tung Sing’. In this workshop, participants will get to know more about ‘Tung Sing’ and how it played the role as an encyclopedia of everyday life in the old days.
