Welcome to Haymarket Welcome to Haymarket and to our third edition of the Haymarket Live Work Play Guide 2016. This latest and larger edition of the local Haymarket Guide provides an insight into the local culture, essential information about how to do business and be a part of the community while also outlining the diverse and exciting range of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues in the area. Haymarket has been experiencing a period of significant changes over the last twelve months and this will continue over the next four to five years as the area is transformed with the development of Darling Square and the construction of the Light Rail. These changes present both challenges and opportunities for Haymarket Chamber of Commerce as we steer the way in strengthening the continued growth for Haymarket whilst maintaining the cultural and historical values that are so intrinsic to the area. 2016 will be the first year we launch Dixon Street’s ‘Market of Lights’ to celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Red Fire Monkey and most significantly, it marks the 10th anniversary for Haymarket Chamber of Commerce as we continue our commitment to support, represent and welcome over 3000 businesses, 15,000 residents and over 1.2 million visitors to this rich diverse precinct that represents over a century of trade, commerce and culture between China and Australia.
Haymarket has been experiencing a period of significant changes over the last twelve months and this will continue over the next four to five years Haymarket’s historical and cultural elements featuring the country’s largest Chinatown, Thaitown and Koreatown creates one of the most culturally exciting and popular global destinations. We hope that you will find the latest edition of the Haymarket Live Work Play Welcome Guide to be informative as well as fascinating and that you will agree that Haymarket is the best place to Live, Work and Play.

A symbolic entry point to Chinatown, this work incorporates Chinese Feng Shui principles and Australian native materials; the tree, gold, earth, and water. In Between Two Worlds By day, the blue cloud pattern painted and etched on the wall and floor murals of Kimber Lane is visibly symbolic of never-ending fortune. By night, the 30 overhanging ‘spirit’ figures add to the dreamlike atmosphere of the space – inviting visitors and illuminating their walk with an enchanting blue glow. With themes inspired by artist Jason Wing’s mixed Chinese and Aboriginal heritage, In Between Two Worlds is a culturally inclusive space which pays homage to our past, present and future ancestors. 6

Mikala Tai Director, 4A Centre For Contemporary Asian Art What is your background? I’m half Chinese and grew up in Hong Kong. I came to Australia to study arts at Melbourne Uni, then did my PHD at UNSW. You’ve recently become director at 4A I’ve always wanted to work with 4A, I’ve been working with contemporary Asian art for over a decade now, so it’s really nice to be here. It was a big challenge relocating from Melbourne and starting a new job simultaneously, but in some ways getting thrown in the deep end has been a really good way to get to know the business. What is coming up at 4A in 2016? 2016 Will celebrate 20 years since the founding of 4A. 4A Began on Sussex Street as the Asian-Australian Artists Association, as a response to Pauline Hanson’s maiden speech and the climate of anti-multiculuralism of that time, and for our 20th Anniversary we are looking at those ideas and what has — or hasn't — changed since then. There will be a large focus on themes of migration and multiculturalism. We are also celebrating Sydney’s Sister City relationship with Guangzhou,
I’m a massive walker so I really enjoy this area — there’s a lot to see with works showing in both cities. So you’re new here — what are your first impressions about Haymarket? I’m a massive walker so I really enjoy this area — there’s a lot to see. I like to see how the city links up, there’s so much art stuff going on it’s kind of impossible to keep up with. I really like the Chinese Garden of Friendship, it’s beautiful — it’s like a little oasis in the middle of the city. My mum used to take me there when I was little. Any hot tips for a bite to eat in the area? Here at 4A we’re all a bit obsessed with Boon Cafe on Pitt Street. It’s an upmarket fancy Thai market, and they also do food. They do a massive bowl of noodles for only $5 from 2 until midnight — we often all end up there after we’ve been working late. Find information on 4A’s upcoming exhibitions at 4a.com.au
Hello, My Darling! The Darling Harbour Transformation Project is the most exciting face-lift Darling Harbour has seen in the last 25 years. The 20-hectare, $3.4 billion transformation will create a new city neighbourhood: Darling Square. Along with reinvigorated public spaces, the project includes a luxury hotel, a new International Convention Centre, a new boulevard and improved public walkways for the community. The enriched public space will have new places for people to play, relax and come together with family and friends. More trees and vegetation will be planted amid iconic art installations and a celebration of Darling Harbour’s water story – all weaved into the area’s rich heritage. Work is underway. The new public spaces will open in stages. A renewed Tumbalong Park has been expanded by 3 square kilometres (pictured). It’s a key meeting place in the precinct, it has already reopened and it’s an amazing space.

Peter Wong Director, P&G Mode Realty
What is your background? I am 3rd generation Australian-born Chinese, and now with a son also born in Australia, making him 4th generation. What is your connection to Haymarket? Since childhood I have spent time in Haymarket - I would come to Chinatown and visit the markets with my grandfather, and play in the shops where he would frequent. Through my high school years I would continue to visit Chinatown (when jigging school). On weekends I would go to the ACCA club house (Australia Chinese Community Association) where with group of friends we started a community youth group organising events such as dances, fashion parades and dragon boat races. Tell us a bit about P&G Mode Realty P&G Mode Realty was established in 1995 as a boutique real estate agency in Haymarket / Chinatown, with a particular emphasis on customer service and extensive experience in local property sales and leasing. We are a very personal service agency, offering residential sales, leasing and â€˜hands-onâ€™ property management for apartments and houses. 14
As many locals have travelled to or lived in Asia, they want the same diversity and vibrancy, dining and shopping experiences here at home From a business perspective, what is it that drew you to set up in Haymarket? For my particular of business real estate itâ€™s about people buying property to live in or as a form of investment - I found that the area of Haymarket/Chinatown would be able to offer and satisfy this criteria for many. I have also had the opportunity to meet so many interesting people from all walks of life, and there is never a dull moment in this area. What do you feel is unique about Haymarket that attracts your clients? As many local people have travelled, lived and live in Asia, they want the same diversity and vibrancy, dining and shopping experiences, and mysterious cultural
traditions here at home – the Haymarket area is only a short distance to some of Sydney’s more cosmopolitan suburbs and landmarks. You’ve just released a P&G mobile app The majority of our clientele are constantly on their smartphones, so we decided to tap into this. It’s been effective as the interface is easy to use — everybody is used to doing things from their phone now, and it’s almost instantaneous. Some websites can be very clunky on the phone, so we found an app was the best way to offer service to people who are on the go. It’s been a succesful move for driving new business into P&G so far, a lot of new inquiries are coming through the app instead of our website. With the rejuvenation of Chinatown underway, what will this major change mean for local businesses? Unfortunately, before being able to enjoy the pleasure and benefits of this the massive projects of the Sydney Light Rail and Darling square will cause much pain to the businesses that require visitor and pedestrian traffic. Through the Chamber of Commerce we have been working with various government authorities to try different programs to maintain the momentum and interest in the area during this difficult period. I just hope that many of the retailers can trade through this period. What advice do you have for those looking to buy, rent or sell in the area? Find the right property agents that know and understand the dynamics of this exciting precinct.

George Wing Kee HCC Co-Founder How long have you been doing business in Haymarket and what drew you to the area? My son Peter invited me to join his real estate business in Haymarket after selling the family food businesses in Zetland. I have been involved with P&G Mode Realty over 18 years. How has Haymarket changed over the years? In 1948 when I first came to Haymarket with my dad to buy produce at the Markets. The area was a hectic mix of Chinese and Italian market gardeners heckling, pushing loads of cabbages, celery, bags of potatoes... orderly confusion and congestion. Now, half a century later, we rub shoulders with bankers, financiers, property developers and tourists from all over the world. Could you describe the kind of businesses and people the area attracts? In the past, cookhouses run by families from the Southern Province of Guangdong served

Grab Your Chopsticks! There is something indefinably special about a simple bowl of noodle soup that inspires such passion in the hearts (and bellies!) of food lovers. It’s not rare to see food lovers in heated debates on the internet over which bowl at restaurant has the crown of “Sydney’s Best”. We’re not going to get into that debate, so instead grab your chopsticks and jump on board as we take a veritable taste tour of Asia without even leaving Haymarket! Shanghai Wonton with Noodle in Soup $11.80 History: Easily one of the most famous Chinese noodle soups, each region of Chinese cuisine has its own style and flavour of wonton using different fillings. In Cantonese, wonton means ‘swallowing cloud’ named so for the way the puffy wontons float in the soup. Taste: These Shanghai style wontons have a simple but tasty pork mince filling hand wrapped in a sheet of wheat noodle, served in pork broth with extra noodles to make sure you leave with a full belly. Old Town Hong Kong, 10A Dixon Street Haymarket Hawker Style Curry Laksa $10.80 History: Laksa is a combination of Malay and Chinese styles of cooking. There are two distinct types of Laksa, the coconut-based laksa lemak (pictured) and tamarind-based asam laksa. Laksa in Bahasa means sepuluh ribu, or “10 thousand”, a reference to the many strands of the vermicelli noodles in the dish. Taste: A rich and creamy coconut curry with just a little chilli bite. Add your choice of seafood, chicken or beef and soak up your soup with generous chunks of tofu. Petaling Street, 760 George Street Haymarket
Yunnan Mushroom Rice Noodle Soup $13.80 History: Yunnan soup is traditionally known as ‘Crossing The Bridge Noodles’. Legend has it that the wife of a hard-working scholar devised this method of serving noodles to keep his meals warm as she delivered across the namesake bridge. Taste: Rice noodles with chicken, mushroom, quail egg and fresh spices in a delicious light broth. Two Sticks, 694 George Street Haymarket or 61-79 Quay Street Haymarket
Dandan Mian $7.50 History: Sichuanese street food. Traditionally, vendors carry two pots on a pole over their shoulder, one for water and one for the noodles and ingredients and shout “Dandan Mien”, which means Dandan noodles. Taste: This one is for the chilli lovers — wheat noodles and pork mince served in a tongue tingling broth of chilli oil and Sichuan pepper is guaranteed to leave your mouth numb, in the most delicious way possible. Red Chilli Sichuan, Level 1/8 Dixon Street Haymarket
Pork Rib Ramen $20 History: Ramen noodles came to Japan from China early in the 20th Century. The first specialist ramen shop opened in Yokahama in 1910. Most regions of Japan have their own style of Ramen. Taste: Chewy hand-cut wheat noodles in thick, hearty soup made from chicken and pork bones. Bamboo, shallots and mushrooms accompany a monstrous rack of pork ribs. Ramen Ikkyu, Sussex Centre Food Court Shop F1A, Level 1, 401 Sussex St Haymarket
Tom Yum Super Nova $7 History: Tom Yum is one of Thailand’s most famous recipes, a fragrant hot and sour soup infused with fish stock and fresh veges and spices. Taste: Fish sauce, lemongrass, lime and chilli give Tom Yum it’s distinct hot and sour taste. Dodee Paideng is infamous for its’ 7 levels of spicy Tom Yum. Level 3 (Lava) is already appropriately named, so if you’re going to take on the Level 7 (Super Nova, pictured) you had best be feeling brave. Dodee Paideng, 37 Ultimo Road Haymarket
Phó Bò Tai $9 History: A Vietnamese staple, Pho is influenced by Vietnamese, French & Chinese cuisines. The name Pho (it’s pronounced fuhh) is believed to have originated from the French word feu, meaning fire. Taste: Rice noodles and thin rare beef slices in a sweet, light & fragrant beef broth with hints of ginger, onion, lime, basil and coriander. Bò 7 Món Thanh Tâm, Market City Food Court 9-13 Hay Street, Haymarket
Creative Twins Sally & Stella Leung What is your background? Sally: We are first generation Australians — our parents migrated here from Hong Kong when we were around a year old What do you do? Stella: I’m an exhibiting artist and commercial illustrator Sally: I design jewellery for my label Lyleu Tell us more about your work Stella: I have exhibited at several local galleries such as Good Space, Kind Of, The Tate and Bow & Arrow. Some of my illustration clients include The Sydney Opera House and SBS. Sally: Lyleu is a jewellery label I founded in 2014. All jewellery is handmade by me using sterling silver, leather, and occasionally gemstones, which are sourced from Australia and overseas. The aesthetic style of Lyleu usually consists of minimalistic, simple forms, combined with intricate details and a monochromatic colour palette.
Where do you find your inspiration? Sally: When I was about 14 years old, I started collecting rings that I found on my trip back home to Hong Kong. I loved seeing intricately designed rings and would spend ages looking at each shelf in a store to see what stood out. I still view jewellery as miniature sculpture as opposed to just being wearable things. Stella: Riot girl style, music and film, horror movies. Also children’s books and comics — I love Charles Burns’ work. We all know of the stereotypes about Asian parents — was there pressure to become a doctor instead of a creative career? Stella: I think our parents kind of gave up on the idea of trying to make us study something academic. They always knew we were creative even as young kids so they never really pressured us to do anything different. Sally: Both parents have had their doubts about whether or not a creative path was going to work out for us, but they are so supportive of what we are doing, they’re always interested to see what we are working on.
