Non-natives that live there do so because it is cheaper, there is no other reason. Those that give alternative reasons do so as there seems to be a need to offer some justification for living somewhere so random. I would have thought that also applies to why you live on Lamma, Island Couple, or are you just unemployable?

The occupants of Pak Kok live in fear of nameless creatures in the surrounding woods. They have built a barrier of moon festival lanterns and webcams that are constantly manned to keep watch for "Those We Don't Speak Of." It is said that the villagers have a long-standing truce with the monsters; the villagers do not go into their woods, and the creatures do not enter their village. The villagers execute a well-rehearsed alarm, in which they rush home, lock their doors and hide in their illegal rooftop structures. The dead, skinned bodies of islandcouple appear in the village; postmortem analysis identified them as trolls...[To Be Continued]

A loud whooshing noise is heard over EverReady's head.

GM asks the village elders for permission to pass through the woods to get medical supplies from "the town". His request is denied and later he is admonished by his mother, Eileen, for wanting to go to the town, which the villagers describe as "a wicked place where wicked people live." Perhaps that was where the ill-fated islandcouple came from. The Elders seem to keep dark secrets of their own in Ding Uk boxes, the contents of which they keep hidden from their female offspring. After GM makes a short venture into the woods, the creatures leave warnings around the village in the form of splashes of red paint (referred by the villagers only as "the IOU color") on all the villagers' doors. [To Be Continued]...

Esmerelda, the blind daughter of the chief Elder, informs GM that she has strong feelings for him, and he returns her affections. They arrange to be married, but things go horribly wrong when EverReady, a young man with apparent developmental problems who is wise to the elders' trick, stabs GM with a knife that he kept hidden away in his pocket. He does this because he is in love with Esmerelda himself. EverReady is locked in a mouldy bathroom until a decision is made about his fate. [To Be Continued]...

The chief Elder goes against the wishes of the other Elders, agreeing to allow his blind daughter Esmerelda to pass through the forest and seek out medicine for GM. Before she leaves, he explains the secret of the creatures – they are "fake" - bogeymen created by the Elders to keep the innocent Pak Kok children from entering the woods in an attempt to keep them from leaving the village. He does mention, however, that "Those We Don't Speak Of" were based upon legends that he had heard at one time, of "real creatures" living in the woods...

While Esmerelda is traveling through the forest, one of the beasts suddenly attacks her. She tricks it into falling into a deep hole to its death, wailing "Whyyyyyyy...!?" as it falls. The creature is actually EverReady in a costume that he had found previously under the floor of the room where he was kept locked away.

Esmerelda eventually finds her way to the far edge of the woods, where she encounters a high, bougainvillea-covered wall. After she climbs over the wall, a Formula 3 driver driving a Village Vehicle with the words "Pak Kok Wildlife Preserve" on the side spots Esmerelda and is shocked to hear that she has come out of the woods.

The driver retrieves medicine from a traditional chinese medicine shop and Esmerelda returns to the village. All the Elders sit around GM's bed. The chief Elder points out that EverReady's death will allow them to continue deceiving the rest of the villagers that there are "creatures" in the woods and all the Elders take a vote to continue living in the village. Esmerelda arrives and says "I'm back, GM."

[The End]
