  • Leung Cho-yin, 67, pays RM 2100 (£105 ) a month for a cage in dilapidated apartment
  • 210,000 people are on waiting list for public housing, double from 2006
  • Monthly rents for tiny spaces, charging up to RM 36 (HK$90) , or ($11.60 USD), per square foot 

For some of the poorest, like Leung Cho-yin, home is a metal cage.
