有人說潮州人的性格是刻苦耐勞,葉盛行老闆娘劉姐印證這是真的。

劉姐的家鄉在潮州汕尾,小時候已跟隨舅父學習製作鹹菜。1972年來港,起初做女工,惟收入不多,至1980年決定做回老本行,在九龍城開設潮州鹹雜檔。做鹹菜花勞力花手藝,劉姐憑着勇於拚搏的精神,由昔日擺街邊的挑擔,營運至今日批發給全港過百間潮州酒家,全靠兒子幫忙打理生意將鹹菜發揚光大,所以將店舖字號由「劉記行」,改為兒子的名「葉盛行」。

鐵閘作品中可見不少潮州特色,例如中文字「食糜」是食潮州粥、「孬意思」是不好意思。畫中亦見劉姐在切鹹菜,兒子則在製作潮州食品粿,正中央是正在傳遞食品的手,有着傳承的意思。

Artist: Noble Wong

Chiu Chow people are known to be very hardworking, and Mrs Lau, the owner of Yip Shing Hong Food Company, is no exception! Originally from Shantou city, Mrs Lau learnt how to make Chiu Chow-style pickled vegetables from her uncle when she was young. She migrated to Hong Kong in 1972, and initially worked as a factory worker. In 1980, she set up a stall in Kowloon City selling homemade pickled vegetables. Pickling vegetables is a labour-intensive and time-consuming process, but Mrs Lau’s business has grown from a simple stall to the largest pickled vegetable wholesaler for all Chiu Chow restaurants in Hong Kong. Her business was originally named Lau Kee Hong, after herself, but it was renamed Yip Shing Hong in honour of her son, who helps manage the business. The shutter artwork shows Mrs Lau chopping pickled vegetables and her son making Chiu Chow rice cakes, and celebrates Mrs Lau passing her family heritage onto her son.
