Cantonese Graffiti and Pipework with Green Paint

This is a photo from my archive taken in Hong Kong. As well as this image I have several other photos with Cantonese text but I have no idea what any of them say. I also have this photo taken at the same time too on Flickr. If anyone can translate them I’d be really grateful, I can’t even be sure if it is grafitti or some kind of instruction that has been sprayed onto the wall.

Both images were taken on the roof of Mirador Mansion which is on Nathan Road in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, a couple of doors down from the infamous Chungking Mansion.

Incidentally, a piece of trivia; there’s a shot of ‘Garden Hostel’ in the Wong Kar-wai film Chungking Express, the hostel is actually in Mirador Mansion.
