The Cantonese call anyone lecherous, and anything salacious, harm sup—literally salty and wet. And the code word for all things harm sup is "kitchen tiles." Anyone who has stepped into a Chinese kitchen knows it is like a war zone, with broth and condiments spilt all over the place; hence the tiles are deemed salty and wet. Kitchen Tiles looks at the lascivious aspects of Hong Kong society. All these stories are based on true experiences. Names and circumstances might have been changed, but the sentiment and spirit remain authentic.
