Fan Tan Alley

fan tan alley smBe careful where you walk in this stretch of alley-way! There may well be someone running past you down this alley-way, trying to flee the scene of a crime. Back in 1889, a teenage boy by the name of Ah Chung fell in love with a prostitute. She spurned his advances and admitted that her master would never give her up. Having lost face, he savagely killed her by beheading her. Everyone was soon after him, and he ran through this alley in an attempt to escape. He was eventually found, but he committed suicide before sentencing. His energy, if not his soul, will never find peace. What’s said to race through these brick walls is that of a terrified man with no place to rest.
