Still alive

Selfie, Hong Kong, May 2020

又是我。仍然是戴口罩的。
Me again. Still wearing mask.

My baby snake

Me and my snake, Hong Kong, May 2020

蛇是假的。

這部相機大概兩年前被我跌壞了,但最近又復活。寶麗萊是好高消費的玩意呀,平均一張要二十元。

The snake is fake.

I broke this camera around 2 years ago. But somehow it works again. Polaroid is expensive to play with. It costs me about HK$20 per each film.

即影即有相很好玩呢,已經上癮了。
Shooting instant film is very fun. I think I am addicted.

Be free

A bird and Eunice in Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong, April 2020

在海邊逛逛。
Strolling along the Seaside.
杜鵑花和小白鷺,其中兩樣我在等待期間見到的事物。/ Azalea and the little egret -- 2 of the things I saw when waiting. 魚。/ Fish. 之後日落,我們還見到一隻死掉的水母,但沒有菲林。/ Later it was sunset. We also saw a dead jelly fish. But I ran out of film.

心很累,很想睡很多覺。身邊越來越多人在談移民,這樣令我覺得很傷心。
I want to sleep a lot. The real world is very cruel. Life in Hong Kong is becoming more difficult by each day. More and more people around me are talking about immigration. It makes me sad.

The idea

V for vendetta, Hong Kong, November 2019

"We're told to remember the idea and not the mane. Because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten. But 400 years later, an idea can still change the world."

上年看這套電影時,真的很感動。最後連續三天看了三次。如果我早幾個月,在上年6月前看,我想我應該不會真的明白這套電影。

我們一直以來被教導是錯的事,真的是錯的嗎?

When I watched this movie last year, I totally feel it. I watched this movie 3 times for 3 consecutive days. If I watched it a few months earlier before June 2019, I don't think I could really understand this movie.

Is what we are taught to be wrong really wrong?

p.s. Hong Kong, get well soon.

Dust bathing!

Animals, Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong, April 2020

超級可愛。

你知道麻雀會在沙中洗澡嗎?我以前聽過,但今次第一次見,而且剛好手上有裝了135mm鏡頭的相機。

My heart melts.

Do you know that sparrows bath in the sand? I heard it before but it was the first time I saw it. Luckily my camera was attached with a 135mm lens at that moment. 沙浴的痕跡!/ The trace of the dust bath! 黑領椋鳥 / Black-collared starling  黑臉噪眉 / Masked laughingthrush 很大隻的飛蛾。/ A huge moth. 又是可愛的麻雀。/ Kawaii sparrow again. 小蜜蜂 / Bee 杜鵑花 / Rhododendron 圓碌碌的珠頸斑鳩 / Spotted dove 高樓大廈種的植物。/ Plants planted on a skyscraper.

"We all grew this way"

Admiralty, Hong Kong, September 2019

大概半年前。感覺好像不久前的事,又好像很久以前的事。

付出和努力不是對等。無論如何,甚麼都好像沒有變好,只是一直的在變差。四周圍都是謊言與歪理。不過如果大家都抱着等死的心態,可能情況會惡化得更快。

有很多可能,有很多好像,有很多遺憾,有很多懊悔。有很多真相作為普通人的我永遠都不會知道。

Around half a year ago. It feels like not long ago but also feels like a long time ago.

Efforts do not promise rewards. No matter how hard we have tried, things do not get better. The situation keeps on getting worse. Lies and fallacies are everywhere. But I guess if we chose to give up on any tries since the beginning, the situation would have gone worse much faster.

There are many possibilities, many guesses, many pities and many regrets. There are also many truths that ordinary people like me will never know.

Life with masks

Hong Kong, March 2020

前排疫情差點,街上很小人,餐廳更小人。現在情況好點,街上又人來人往,不過大家仍然戴着口罩。

現在天氣非常熱非常潮濕,戴口罩生活很不容易呢。

Previously the situation of Wuhan pneumonia in Hong Kong was worse. There were fewer people on the street. There were even fewer people in the restaurants. Now the situation is much better. There are many people everywhere again. But still, everyone is wearing masks.

Now the weather is very humid and hot here. Living a life with mask is not easy.
