ABSTRACT

It was 2011. I returned from England to Wang Toi Shan after submitting my PhD draft. As in the past, I was invited to help organise their National Day Celebration. When I attended the meeting for the celebration, I was told that there would be two Masters of Ceremonies (MCs) from the walled village. Both were women: Jenny and Miss Ha. And they would work together as MCs with an ex-actor. I was very surprised with this arrangement. When I first entered the village, the women were not even allowed to help, let alone organise the event. In the past, all the tasks had been done by the men in the village and later on (when I moved into the village) by me and my students.
