The Taste of Yesteryear
Commissioned by WWAVE DESIGN, SEESAW produces an animated brand video for Macao’s time-honoured eatery “Man Lay Hong Kei”, unfolding its 70-year painstaking dai pai dong journey.
The legend starts with its founder carrying on his shoulder a pole with two baskets – one holding the ingredients, and the other the cookware – and selling noodles in the sun and rain at every corner of the town. Hong Kei has come a long way and is now a well-covered dai pai dong. Today, the third-generation owner with a good eye for quality ingredients still puts a lot of effort into maintaining the local taste, and the neighbourhood’s merry and warm atmosphere.
