On Charmaine Leung’s first day of school, her mother warned her not to tell anyone where they lived. Theirs was an infamous postcode – the red-light district Keong Saik Road, where Leung’s mother ran a brothel. Leung, has written a memoir of her childhood in the gai dau, or “chicken stable” as it was crudely known in Cantonese – partly as an attempt to come to terms with the shadow her mother’s profession had cast on both their lives.” —Olivia Ho, The Straits Times,
