sometime in september 2019 during my extended trip, a friend suggested me to visit a monastery to seek higher meaning of life. little did he know, nor i haven’t yet shown him the collection of videos i took.
one of the destinations was a beach called la barra. sitting on the edge of a national park, the nearest city is buenaventura, a 40min speedboat ride away. without portable water nor internet/wifi, i think i slowed myself down, if it were just for a mere 72 hours.
ps. the beach is actually much brighter and safer than it appeared in the video, if it had gotten your heart pounding a bit faster and harder.
there is a childhood boardgame called jungle, i could easily call it animal combat in a more word for word and vivid translation. i assembled a three-party food chain when i posted a feline on social media for chasing after this lunar new year’s rodent while the little mascot can easily sneak into the big ears of flying jumbo’s cousins…
such is the a trumps b trumps c sequence here.
wishing everyone staying away from forest fires, viral outbreak or any other troubles in the year of the rodent!
sourire si, souris non!
not since the days when i was living in astoria or long island city that i went out to laundry at 3am. this time around, almost one and a half decades later, in my hometown of all places, i did it because one of these automatic laundromat chains had a new opening offer of only 5hk$ a load (of 18lbs).
everything is automatic, unmanned, and you don’t even have to add detergent.
with the options of fabric softerners or what not, usually japanese or korean
the regular prices are pretty competitive, to full services stores
it was a clean and tranquil place at 3am, if only it could wash out all the troubles of hong kong in 2019!
the girl who lost the right eye to a bean bag round shot by the hong kong police on 11 August 2019 finally gathered some energy to give a brief statement. a lot of public anger in the past two weeks calling for “an eye for an eye”. i can’t imagine the courage and how poised she has been in the video. if i were put into the same situation, traumatized is an understatement.
lots of flyers/artwork also emerged and keep on pumping out on various lennon walls in hong kong. here are a few of the examples.
alluding to street fighters or protesters:
another bloodied eye also appeared on the background towards the right above!
alleged gangster, people like him bring shame to new territories folks, given i grew up and my parents devoted their youth and career in the NT.

‘happy together’ de wong war-wai
fréquenté par des milliers et milliers des touristes chinois, hétéro de plus. ce lieu est plus proche de euro disney à paris, dit familial que la ville sur-romantisée qui s’appelle buenos aires òu se trouvent les deux exilés hongkongais dans le film. c’est un changement de cible intéressant vers une clientèle plus diverse, même si hong kong reste une ville qui tiene toujours des valeurs conservateurs.
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?
