Following in her father's footsteps at age 13, Ho Sau-Mei began training in the art of carving mahjong tiles by hand. Now in her mid-60s, Ho carries on her family legacy in the same shop where she grew up, while most of the industry has turned to factory-made, mass-produced plastic tiles. With only a few mahjong sifus (masters) left in Hong Kong and no successors to the trade, mahjong carving may very well disappear with her generation.


「十三歲拜師學藝,湄姐投身麻雀行業五十載,作為行內僅存的女師傅,她見證了香港手工行業的由盛轉衰,手雕麻雀逐漸成為夕陽行業。然而,這並沒有削弱湄姐對工作的熱衷,憑著她一雙巧手,繼續堅守傳統,用心刻畫著這老店的未來。」。
