Saw this place in one of the HK drama serials (冲上云霄) ! People throw coins into it to make a wish, right ??
Three coins in the fountain!

eden,"Three Coins in the Fountain" is a film and also its theme song. :)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three_Coins_in_the_Fountain_%28movie%29You can listen to the Frank Sinatra version here:http://youtube.com/watch?v=tui_Ywq3JHo
Oh i see ! ha ! Thanks Xiao Zhu =)
Eden,You're welcome. Nice meeting you. :)
Nice meeting you too! =)
Eden and Xiao Zhu: Thanks Xiao Zhu for explaining. That was an old 1954 movie!! I remember hearing the song played on the radio many years later. Of cousre, there was also the Chinese-dubbed version that had nothing to do with the story. It goes like: 『飛哥跌落坑渠,飛女睇見就流淚.....』where 飛哥、飛女refer to "teddy boys/girls" (roughly meaning teenagers who hang out - as those in West Side Story).
