Printer-friendlyPrinter-friendly

Mah-jong, with almost a thousand years of history, is hailed as one of China ’ s national essences. When Hong Kong people play mah-jong, they not only chitchat over the MJ table and bond with one another, but also mah-jong helps increase thinking ability and improve memory. According to academic research in Hong Kong, mah-jong is beneficial to easing the symptoms of Alzheimer ’ s disease. Yet mah-jong itself is a very addictive sport and overindulgence in gambling over it can cost us our own well being, family and entire fortune.In this Hong Kong story, we speak with mah-jong historians, the champion of an international mah-jong tournament and lovers of the sport to investigate the relationship between mah-jong and Hong Kong people.Producer: Newland Lui
