Every morning, Marcus and Cynthia wake up and have breakfast on a platform by the window while looking out at the fountain and the lush garden.

The winding stone path, manicured shrubs and pine trees look exactly like a tranquil English garden, which makes it hard to believe that this is actually a corner of Whampoa.

In this quiet part of the neighbourhood, the only sounds one can hear are trickling water and the chirping of the birds.
