Yau King Eng was a door to door salesman when he lived in Hong Kong. He spent most of his time on Hong Kong Island, selling during the day, sleeping in the wharehouse at night. The company he worked for provided a place to sleep, meals and shoes. With a salary of 10 Hong Kong dollars per day, he paid for his apartment (where his wife lived and which he was able to visit on holidays), sent money home to his family and saved up to come to America.
We accompanied him to the old neighborhood & many of the places in his memory.
