    Background: Play in
    In a busy street in Hong Kong is a unique establishment -- the Hing Wen Restaurant.

    It is a rendezvous for large numbers of Chinese who are owners of cage birds.Cage birds are very popular in Hong Kong, perhaps because of overcrowded conditions which make ownership of larger pets difficult.Customers of this tea house bring their pets with them, and special racks are provided on which to hang the cages.

    Window sills and tables are also used, and the bird chatter is almost deafening -- the feathered customers feel quite at home.

    Chinese delicacies are served to the human customers.

    Squeaking voice: What about me? What about me?*
    Don't be impatient -- here comes your food.
