I think Yau Ma Tei has been retiled but white plastic walls now cover much of the Shek Kip Mei platform.

That's what I like about the MTR stations, the colour. The Causeway Bay is the coolest one, they use pink

Not really pink, it should be the color the light Bauhinia, the city flower of HK.

Pink is still the general term for this kind of colour. Anyway, Causeway Bay is unique for this. Is it probably because the district is a major shopping centre?

Actually colour perception is based on:
-cultural factors (ie some pacific cultures have no word for green)
-physical 'cones' in the eye
-light source from the location
-differential threshold tolerance in each person's brain (minimum change of 50% to see the difference in colour)

so all of you are right in saying what colour it is

Funny, CWB is the station I use the most whenever I'm in HK, but I wouldn't be able to remember which colour it is right off the top of my head (even though I would remember the red/white/blue stripes at YMT, and I never even use that station). I'm leaning more towards purple too; perhaps lavender?

The station is under Waterloo Road and the red/white/blue stripes represent France.
