The word Canton should read Guangdong which is the province (Canton is the western name for the city of Guangzhou). Kwang Moon is the City of Jiangmen (Mandarin), and Pak Sar (Baisha in Mandarin, meaning white sands) is a locale inside Jiangmen City which is the administrative centre of the former Siyi (Sei Yap--four counties) now called Wuyi (Ngh Yap--five counties).
