A full house of 1,200 spectators in Hong Kong turned out to see Kwok Ka-ming win the annual bun-scrambling competition at the Cheung Chau Pak Tai Temple Playground soccer pitch on early Saturday morning.

Kwok, a resident of the Cheung Chau Island who was also the bun-scrambling king in 2007, won the game by scoring 939 points.

First runner-up was Ho Sin-fai and second runner-up was Chung Yuk-chuen. Wong Ka-yan, who got 603 marks, beat the other two female contestants to become the female champion.

Nine men and three women finalists climbed the 14-meter-tall bun tower and had three minutes to snatch as many buns as they could for the highest scores.

Divided from the bottom to the top into three zones, the tower was studded with buns representing one, three and nine marks with special color stamps on the bottoms. The contestant who scored the highest marks from all the buns collected was the champion.

In addition, teams from Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Macao competed in an invitation relay against teams from Cheung Chau.

The Petrel Athletic Association won the championship while Wing Kai Far Pau Association was the first runner-up. The second runner- up was Spirit Sports Association.

The Bun Scrambling Event has been a traditional activity of the Cheung Chau Bun Festival.
