Wishing Well

inside Central Plaza

Conceived and designed by Professor Liu Hong Kay from Los Angeles, the Wishing Well is modeled after the Sacred Seven Star Caverns, a famous scenic site in Guangdong.  At its public dedication, Los Angeles-born, international film star Anna May Wong whose Chinese name translates to “Frosted Yellow Willow,” planted a willow tree; nearby gift shops sold postcards which captured the event.

Today, wishers try their luck at such fortuitous forces as “love,” “money,” and “health.”
