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!
