Old Wooden Plaque

Traditionally, Chinese businessman is very much concern on the wooden plaque with shop name on top of the shop entrance. Tearing down the plaque symbolizing the fall of business and it is always a taboo to disturb the plaque. However, when we walk along five-foot way of old shophouses in downtown, there are many non-operating shops with their plaque left behind, accompanying the mottled wall and rusted gate. The glorious past is no longer remembered, it is just waiting for another chapter to begin.
