不會忘記

香港2019年社會運動到今天2020年二月底,特別的日子要不是機構鬼拍後尾枕嘅未敢忘記。每月月底則是對太子地鐵站警察暴力的控訴!政府在新冠肺炎下派錢$10000之餘又大幅增加警隊撥款,恐怕市民短期內都不會忘記。

 

歲晚收爐至另行通告?temporarily closed til god knows when

能夠令極端資本主義減慢下來的,不是社會運動,而是新冠肺炎。你有否見過黃昏七點便關門的麥當勞快餐店?如果不是商場阻止,麥記打十號風球都不會停下來。然而今次這商場因為過境的碼頭停用,內裡的商舖也頓變冷清。停止營業的計有銀行、餐廳、中醫、藥房等等,但看看通告便知各家的公關手段。個別受疫情影響生意難做的,幹嘛寫成“裝修”呢?大環境影響,又不是自己錯也不敢寫出事實,這些公司內部文化真是有啲問題喎!

neither typhoon signal number ten nor the prolific social movement of 2019 can barely touch upon the religiously capitalistic machinery of hong kong. then came covid-19, who made a steady and rapid ascent with the year of the rat, and like stepping on brakes did it achieve in sabotaging the capitalistic rat race with just a few dozens of cases and counting, in february 2020. whether it is tcm clinic, restaurant, bank or pharmacy, their branches in this shopping arcade which serves also as a ferry terminal to mainland china and macao decided to temporarily close the doors until perhaps the community outbreak of the virus retreats, if their leases last that long. what perplexed me was the lie a few of the notices posted “renovation” as the pretext, what were the management thinking? it wasn’t the company’s fault, but external, uncontrollable circumstances that require cost-cutting measures. if there is anything, it makes me think thrice about the integrity of these corporations for if they need a pretext foe something they didn’t do, imagine when they really make an error or put their customers in harms way, they probably would find tons of excuses to rid themselves of responsibility! so consumers beware, separating the good crops from the rotten few in the time of covid-19.

容港治己 let hk governs itself

對超級有錢佬本來無乜好感,但是一則廣告又令到繃緊現況多了個吹水,食花生的空間
黃台之瓜 何堪再摘
「最好的因可成最壞的果」、「愛中國.愛香港.愛自己」、「愛自由.愛包容.愛法治」及「以愛之義 止息怒憤」
方塊字的力量,盡在排版位置之巧妙表現出來
deconstructing 最後幾句竟然得出

因果由國 容港治己
再抽水抽得過火啲的話,連
義憤民誠
也抽出嚟

最後個句好似牽強咗一點。有評論說,超人一把年紀,仍懂得搵個文筆好的,來個靚抽!
我最認同的,是 容港治己。悲觀的人會覺得機會渺茫,不過香港對許許多多外來人士、企業、政府都很有利用價值,所以怎樣發展下去仍然有觀望空間。

疑似黑社會人士 apparent triad member

疑似黑社會人士,你都唔好話唔似。其實早幾日某晚上見人開始貼黑紙仔,點知貼出嚟咁神似!最該煨就係呢個係乜乜專業人士呢!老實講呢啲人真係丟晒光明正大嘅新界人架!

venezuela, whom to trust?

a really depressing topic, given people don’t see juan guaido’s  ridiculous self-proclamation as president is an attempt of usa backed coup d’état. understandably, one might say, because mainstream media in usa and other nato states work like propaganda machines. however tale-telling finds and associations do appear, if one leaves no stone unturned. take this strange (or you might think outrageous) comparison to the 74th anniversary of the liberation of auschwitz camp and his thank you to the israeli pm.  if the war crimes committed to the palestinians serve well as an indicator, perhaps you will see through msm’s thick smog of fake news.

méchant 猙獰

是褒是貶,點解一般以為清雅嘅國畫都可以呈現面目猙獰之效?

pourquoi cet art national qui démontre normalement la beauté de la vie ou le bonheur montre un visage semblablement méchant? peut être c’est un cœur dur et froid qui fait une apparition non-déguisée.

古語云:「相由心生」,那麼這是心影響相,還是相出賣了她的心?

世界盃落幕

世界盃落幕

以一個唔睇足球嘅人嚟講今年應該是我近幾屆,即係十幾廿年來追得最多嘅一次。上次提到嘅非足球強國如墨西哥、日本等等,係新聞報導下漸漸關注。哨吓墨西哥因為想學好西班牙話,且覺得一個很少俾人睇得起、又有暴力、毒梟、又啱啱選咗amlo做總統,小從雞毛蒜皮,大到國家層面的不公義構成一幅奇異又繽紛之角度。關注日本就一定係力戰比利時但係輸咗嘅可惜,而唔係因為少咗兩張黃牌贏咗sénégal(塞內加爾)啦!塞內加爾好似仲向fifa告狀添

好多睇現場直播嘅人都覺得日本對比利時個場十分精彩。比利時係落後兩球下追返並最後贏3:2真係唔簡單。之後佢哋對法國我當然希望小國贏啦(雖則比國都係冷血嘅前殖民地主-係剛果斬咗好多奴隸嘅手)。網上看見評論說經過兩年前的多次恐襲,這世界盃冠軍可算一點沖喜士氣,雖然我係francophile, (c’est strictement des pays et cultures franco-phones, pas au sens de la france seulement!) 但也不能”恭喜”法國,因為種族歧視的原因,還有其國家機器做嘅壞事-例如恐怖襲擊敘利亞(聽說所有導彈都被擊落)

from capitalistic middle and uppper class hipster sh*t to civil disobedience rage.

So this has been a weekend loaded with activities I attended haphazrdly. The Kowloon City Bookfair, which is running its 6th annual leg, finally fit into my junky, over-the-head, boisterous music-by-the-habourfront weekend. Organised by young literary connoisseurs, back by a creativity-oriented high school, a think tank, etc., the bookfair is a mélange of talks, roundtables, flea market, mini-bookfair and a mini-concert. Free of charge to everybody, coarse but ever-evolving, it’s what this overcrowded and over-developped city needs if Hong Kong were to slow down and smell some roses, or fresh air!

Thanks to a random gift of kindness, I set foot in West Kowloon waterfront for Clockenflap, probably the last time in a while by the West Kowloon waterfront since constructions will be swung into actions in the coming years.

My previous impression of this “music festival” has been some gweilos replicating rock concerts spiced with burning man. Upon entering I was upset with the overfloated plastic recycle bin with all types of trash. A day later however, a politically charged performance by “my little airport” sort of eased my displeasure. Well, in a non-perfect world, room for improvement is the key!
