Thank you for providing us the pictures of Block "26" and it's surrounding in 1961 and 1963. We lived at Block "26" during 1961 thru August 1966. Our family emigrated to US, New York City in 1966. Indeed, the pictures bring back our fond memories. 

Warm regards,


I have had a fond memory of Chai Wan Resettlement Estate, Block "26." I would claim it was the turning point in my life. Sine then, I started to learn and have become a lifelong learner.  

Here is an excerpt from my Kindle edition ebook,  "Learn to Succeed: A Lifelong Learner's Memoir" by Kam W. Ng published on 28 September 2021. See the following link:

"In 1961, we moved to Chai Wan Resettlement Estate, Block “E.” Our living unit “622” was on the 6th floor.

Old residence in Chai Wan Resettlement Estate 

I was taking “going to school” very seriously. When I was in the 4th grade, my teacher punished me for not reciting one of the paragraphs well. Being nervous by standing up, my stuttering got worse to the point I could not utter a single word. I struggled through the class and threatened to jump off our living unit on the 6th floor. My parents were so concerned that they talked to my teacher to give me a break. I studied hard since that incidence and was ranked in the top three in 5th and 6th grades. I graduated from Fortress Hill Government Primary AM School in 1964."  

Note that Block "E" became Block "26" in 1964.
