La Jaula de Oro (The Golden Dream)


films on immigrants will not be going out of style anytime soon in the 21st century even though we are almost through with the second decade.

why? people flee their homes because of economic difficulties, violence, war, environmental devastation etc. will continue to do so in foreseeable future, despite all the agreements, treaties and protocols signed.

La Jaula de Oro (Director: Diego Quemada-Díez, 2013) is the latest one i saw. a few teenagers from guatemala trying to ride the freight trains North to fulfill their golden dream. there were good people throwing fruits up to the dehydrated migrants on the slow moving train. unfortunately, more often the travelers were robbed, often at gunpoint. real cinema, real story, sad future that repeats.

embryo rice n okra

embryo rice soaked overnight then steamed, garnished with cheese,  salmon stir-fried and okra with turmeric

ingredients that aren’t extravagant, but if one takes the time to mix and match, from start to finish the cooking takes less than 40 minutes (mostly waiting for the rice, the stir fries took less than 10 min)

with food safety in people’s mind all the time, how often you invest your time and energy to secure your own?

Ce que j’ai publié hier documente le gaspillage comme d’habitude dans des marchés des fleurs pour le nouvel an lunaire.  Il y avait un parade la première soirée du nouvel an, dont les voitures sont montrés dans une fête à New Territories pendant 2 semaines.

cochon comme thème d’année

年年皆有的花車巡遊,很多年都每有現場看。今年機緣巧合下,跑到林村趁熱鬧在日間看花車、看人們瘋狂掟寶牒。

La chasse pour la meilleure calligraphie annuale finit par les deux photos ici, avec les boutiques qui ont indiqué que leur année recommençait au 10e et au 7e jour respectivement.    今年見到最靚的書法是年初一半夜四、五更時拍到灣仔泰華木業初十啟市這張通告

當然大埔省躬草堂醫療中心這張輸了馬鼻,但也非常工整。況且照片拍出嚟更清楚!寫得最靚不一定放最長的假。余瞥見尖東某舖年十五才載譽歸來,多麼令打工仔羨慕!

豬年到

農曆新年溫暖又潮濕地過來,年初幾天彷彿回南天一樣!新十五後,竟然乍暖還寒,再加微微細雨。又是時候總結一下花墟年初一早上的所見所聞。lunar-entrance.jpg

浪費的現象仍然有,但某些攤位撤退前義工幫忙告知有免費的花卉、用剩的物資等等。

但因為過年前天氣實在太暖,桃花則救也救不了多少。很多檔攤未到最後衝刺已經人去樓空。接手的是看看有無靚花可拾的市民。free1.jpg

初一的早上八點多,這商場已經準備燒豬還神!pig.jpg

希望看官有個平平穩穩的一年!
