<Chungking Express* 2 : The Toyota of Serendipity>
Starring Tony Leung, Faye Wong and their 20+ year old movie children on their way for their favourite dim sum place at Turf City. They always order the Bolo Pau and off-menu Chef’s Salad.
They’ve a chain of fast casual “Midnight Express” across the island at retro-spots (usually Far East Organization properties) like Far East Shopping Centre and Plaza, Beauty World, Ming Arcade for real, Proto-hipster experiences, where San Miguel is the draught of choice. They are considering partnering up with The Projector on a special project.
The children want to transform their parents’ business into something more mass-market, like a Gong Cha or llao llao, but Papa Leung gestures “no”. “But I’ll match dollar-for-dollar to fund your global street food grand tour of the major cities. So that you will know and be schooled what authentic street food culture is. Know and grow your own heart and soul in this culture. The ‘Gram comes after that fact, son and daughter.” Papa Leung’s tea cup is empty, Son promptly tops it up from the stout tea pot. 5mm away from the lip of the cup. “Mmm goi.” -Fin- *known in some export markets as <Hongkong Express>
