我不知道 Joyce Jonathan

如果不是友人相告她在北京春晚的表演,真不知道Joyce Jonathan 是誰,更不曉得她的單曲有一普通話版本。搞笑的是某些網民說聽到半分鐘才知道是唱中文歌 哈哈。大概是開始的旋律音節太多太快,頭幾句的一音一字都變成模糊一大片。聽下去,感覺倒不錯。

quelques fleurs à 3h du matin 凌晨三點的花兒

年花市場掃貨
凌晨兩點多匆匆跑到年宵市場看看有甚麽可買,結果以二十元買了一些百合。

à 3 heures du matin, ils restent des fleurs de pêcher pour moins de $HK100. Moi j’ai ramassé quelques liliacées pour un plein $HK20, pas pire à commencer noctuellement l’an du dragon.

剩下的花不多 not much left at 3am

龍年到 2012

希望你的新年不是淹沒在一片丹麥屋牛油曲奇、甚麽金沙朱古力等等下。我收到活化廳另類的祝賀,跟你們分享。

if a so called “developed” economy can’t make sure its all citizens a decent standard of living, our Spring Festival would make no difference like the twisted Xmas and New Year, don’t you think?

protest SOPA n PIPA

WTF… the great firewall of china would have company?

Many websites are blacked out today to protest proposed U.S. legislation that threatens internet freedom: the Stop Internet Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). From personal blogs to giants like WordPress and Wikipedia, sites all over the web — including this one — are asking you to help stop this dangerous legislation from being passed. go to americancensorship.org to take action.

為民所有。。。真正民主之國

Fine-tuning democracy means reality can’t measure up to artist’s utopia. Et la vraie démocratie t’emmerde toujours (comme la crise en Europe).

為民所治 為民所享 by the people, for the people

As of Janurary 2012, Taiwan is better off than Hong Kong or mainland.

如電影裏跳出來的油畫,字裡行間代表了多少華人的心聲。
Entré au 21e siècle, Taiwan a suivi quelques pas en avant, tandis que la Chine continentale et HKG, on prie pour ne pas marcher pas en arrière.

Shit White Guys Say… to Asian Girls

this video is relevant mainly for my friends and acquaintance in North America. It is in certain way funny but people ACTUALLY say those things re-enacted in the video. Cultural appropriation, a hot potato revisited from one of the many angles.

Fortunately most of the white people around me have some degree of cultural sensitivity. If not, they are hiding their bigotry pretty well LOL.

Yes, of course there are self-hating Asians (or should I say Asian Americans or Asian Canadians) who like to be appropriated or just wanna be “white”, but when people have identity issues and choose to live miserably, that’s non of my business hahaha.

And to those offended by this video, I tell ya I follow what
Eleanor Roosevelt had said:

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

mademoiselle, ou madame? politiquement correct

La fin de “mademoiselle“? Dans la circonscription de Cesson-Sévigné en France, le maire a supprimé le choix de “mademoiselle” dans les formulaires par seulement “madame“. Si l’état civil des hommes sont pas divulgué, pourquoi on le demande pour les femmes?
Est-ce un cas de politiquement correct ou un vrai progrès?

mademoiselle ou madame? 小姐 變 女士?

mademoiselle ou madame? 小姐 變 女士?

Une France de plus en plus diverse, les gais, les musulmans, les juifs en finance, la guillotine, les environnementalistes, peuvent-ils des idées qui t’emmerdent?

Reportage en anglais par BBC

un autre en français

Qu’en pensent des damoiseaux par rapport à ça?

法國一小城把官方表格的小姐mademoiselle的項目用madame(女士或太太)來代表。
法語的madame除了解作女士、太太外,一般是比較年紀大的,相反mademoiselle一般指較年輕的未婚小姐。去除選擇是否政治正確的行動或是社會真正有進步呢?其實madame翻過來中文已經不能有一對一的原意,語言的中立性和偏見因而各有不同。

from American Debt to Quoom1 & Jessica Latshaw


The irresponsibility of governments, corporations and individuals that lead us to this so called ‘global’ economic crisis, ironically satirized in this short film about. I won’t dampen your spirit forcefully (which you can through self-imposed S&M by watching the video linked above.) Instead, the clip below rekindles my love for NYC, a place where I lived on and off for almost ten years from the 90s right into the first few years of this millenium. I am biased, but just as expressed in the title of the video, not LA nor Wind city nor San Diego nor San Francisco nor Boston nor anywhere else in the USA would have that level of spontaneous vibrancy of strangers. Thanks in part, I believe, to the long gap between stations on the express D or A train running along Central Park West. I might not like America – random examples of political hegemony, or the quantitative easing externalising responsibilities to other countries or watching South Sudan oil like vultures and so on that would probably take an equal time since the very existance of the USA to list – but I still love NYC in 2012. How nice to see humanity at work on the subway, not to mention it brings back memories of subway rides between 125th Street and Columbus Circle.

Michael Jackson et Mao

把工廠辦成毛澤東思想的大學校
當工廠變成畫廊的時候,前人絕對不會估計到米高積遜的雕塑有啥關係。雖則一是大政治家,創建新中國、另一是大歌星,萬人迷,兩者皆有黑暗的一面。
藝術這玩意,倒可給大家吹吹水。

Mao + Michael Jackson

Mao + Michael Jackson

Gerer la manufacture comme une école des pensées du président Mao.
Avec le statut de Michael Jackson, imaginez vous la réaction du président Mao s’il écoutait ses chansons. Peut-être Jackson s’amuserait six pieds sous la terre sur le fait que sa musique a pénétré la grande muraille culturelle de la Chine.

on new year’s day 2012

1.1.2012 in Hong Kong meant I had…

1. watched fireworks @ the strike of midnight 西曆年香港子夜煙花,倒是我第一次看

2. witnessed a guiness record made of 88 dragons waving continuously for five minutes, while the previous record was 50 something dragons at the same time. 去年舞獅,今年舞龍,為了爭取世界紀錄還是。。。?

3. occupied my own spot of the global Occupy movement, in this case Occupy Central HK, even though it was for a night, but I ended 2011 and started 2012 there. No the world won’t get any better with the environmental and economic chaos we have, but the problems weren’t created in a day, it might take a generation or a lifetime to clean up the messes. Being there kept me close to reality, even though i have my weakness still for consumerism and what not. 除夕夜到佔領中環過了一夜,反對百分之一的人控制百分之九十九的人的現象. 破壞環境、失業、經濟危機、日常生活的一體化、商業化,問題所在倒不必開宗明義!
