Lan Kwai Fong is synonymous with Hong Kong night life. But it wasn’t always that way. The street used to be full of vendors and there was even a garbage collection center in the area. A Canadian named Allan Zeman turned it around.

Today he owns 65 percent of the properties there. He’s proud of his business as well as his identity as a Chinese national. Zeman has lived in Hong Kong for over four decades. Our reporter Wang Mangmang spoke to the Father of Lan Kwai Fong to find out what he thinks about Hong Kong and himself. Full story

Q1: Your guest Allan Zeman seems quite at home in Hong Kong. Is his experience typical for many foreigners living there?

Q2: I gather you’re at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center right now. What is the atmosphere there like? What’s been done to prepare for the upcoming ceremony?
