Tiny Shop in Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong

This is a tiny shop underneath a staircase of an old building in Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, Hong Kong. Those two working inside look like a husband and wife team, and they do clothing alterations. I couldn’t believe how small the space is, it is literally a closet! My girlfriend and I walked by after having desert at 佳佳甜品, a traditional Chinese desert place, which is just around the corner from here.

This tiny shop entrance is even more narrow compare to the staircase of this old walk-up building. It is more of a closet, than a shop.
