Living on Cheung Chau

Cecil Chao paradise taking shape on Cheung Chau

Along Cheung Chau Praya, towards Sai Wan, a housing development is taking shape. Not just any development - this is on land bought in 2007 for a whopping HK$96.5 million by Cheuk Nan (Holdings) Ltd, the chairman of which is Cecil Chao Sze-tsung - who has been described as "extraordinary Casanova, socialite and businessman". Mr Chao has said his company would turn the site into "paradise" - and change the surroundings.

As yet, doesn't look too much like what many people might consider "paradise", but work is ongoing.
