About the Narrator
Mr Chan Siu-fan was born in Wuyi Shan, Fujian in 1964. He came to Hong Kong for settlement in 1980. At an age of 18, Mr Chan started to learn the skills of bamboo scaffolding by following a famous master. After completing the apprenticeship, he became a master himself, and gradually became experienced in taking up small and large construction projects. In 1989, he set up his own company and began taking up subcontracting orders. He was both a project holder, a master and even a driver transporting materials. In a short period of 3 years, the subcontracting company was registered as a limited company.
