This narrative study is to explore and understand the Hong Kong Chinese adults' meanings of health, the ways they continued to construct these meanings and the expression of these meanings in their day-to-day living after the severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) epidemic. Five participants were recruited voluntarily. Data were collected through a series of unstructured interviews and conversations with each individual. The interviews were tape-recorded. Data were analysed through a narrative approach to extract themes and patterns from their stories of health within the three-dimensional narrative inquiry space, which is characterized by the personal-social and time dimensions that are situated in a specific place, Hong Kong. Findings revealed first, a continuity of participants' stories of SARS as part of their narrative identities and the cultural traditions and second, the importance of understanding the relevance of newly adopted health practice into their past day-to-day living.
