Shooting around Kowloon Tong part 3: WELLCOME in Selkirk Road /Oxford Road corner

Kowloon Tong was and still is a great quiet place to shoot movies. Its quiet streets & countless alleys allow the crews to shoot with not many public disturbances. As we have checked watching IFD & Filmark movies Ninjas could walk & fight calmly aorund Kowloong without problems or too many witnesses.
Marko Ritchie & Nina Pachy are ninjas who prefer Wellcome rather than Park 'n Shop. When Rage of the ninja was shot Selkirk road Wellcome supermarket was painted on yellow.

While I was re-watching Rage of a Ninja, the second & last movie Mike Abbott starred along Marko Ritchie, I recogniced Selkirk Road, located in the heart of Kowloon Tong but alongside the the area of Cumberland Road where most love hotels, Bruce Lee's home & some Catholic schools are located.
Selkirk Road runs perpendicular between Cambridge Road & Oxford Road. And we can find a WELL COME Supermarket at the corner of Oxford/ Selkirk road where Godfrey Ho put his camera & John Cheung Ng-Long choreographed the ninja fight between Marko Ritchie & Mike Abb0tt's henchmen.

Today, almost 25 years later Selkirk road remains unchanged, only the wall paint has changed from yellow to white!

It is an interesting shot, since we see the hero coming out from that Wellcome supermarket followed by a girl who is also a bad ninja. That branch of Wellcome Supermarket still on bussiness today.
A ninja supermarket in Kowloon Tong!
