This note studies the relationship between Hutton's quasi-uniformities and Shi's quasi-uniformities. It is shown that when $L$ satisfies``multiple choice principle" for co-prime elements, the category of Hutton's quasi-uniform spaces is a bireflective full subcategory of the category of Shi's quasi-uniform spaces. Especially, if the remote-neighborhood mapping defined by Shi preserves arbitrary joins, then the two categories are isomorphic to each other.
