I am a village boy in the New Territories. I remember as a little boy going to my grandma’s chicken farm and harvesting fruits like mangoes, lychees, papayas from tree tops. There were yellow cows, rabbits, and ducks too. All these things were within five minutes of a little boy’s adventure.
eing a male indigenous inhabitant, I automatically receive the right to build a “ding uk” village house. People often mistake this right to include a piece of land to build on.
As far as I know, the lineage of ding uk right is for heterosexual marriages only. As same sex partnership is not recognised in HK, unless I marry a woman and she gives birth to a son, my ding uk right meets a deadend.
