FOR THE BETTER LIFE
Back in the days of war, guns and fire, Mr. Chan Chi San and his parents were forced to leave their hometown Guang Dong Province, and walked their way to Hong Kong, just hoping to survive. They came to Hong Kong with barely anything in their pocket. What Mr. Chan did not realise was, a good pair of hands was what all he needed.
Dedicated countless hours and sleepless nights into the study of tailoring, Mr. Chan Chi San has finally mastered his tailoring skills and established his first workshop in Central, Hong Kong, where he met his love of his life. Hong Kong had become the home for his family and business.

In the 80’s, flight traveling was an extremely luxurious experience. As for Mr. Andy Chan, it was the biggest bet in his life so far. He had spent most of his savings for this trip, hoping a great return for his courage and hard work.
Only a handful of English vocabulary (as seen on your left), fabric swatches, tape measure and a map was all he had in his pocket.
THE DESERVED RETURN
Mr. Andy Chan's trip to the USA was a great success. After a few trips, Mr. Andy Chan had finally saved up enough for his first shop. At that time, Hong Kong's economy was booming, with thousands of tourists and sailors landing there feet on Tsim Sha Tsui Harbour. It was the time when Mr. Andy Chan knew all his hard work was worthwhile.
