1/10

IMG_8015Central & Admiralty, Hongkong Island, Hong Kong

Background
Hong Kong is a special administrative region in China. We have our own administrative system. At the moment the Chief executive of Hongkong is elected by 1200 election committee members. But everyone knows that most of these people are pro-Chinese-government. In 2017 every citizen is granted the right to vote the Chief executive out of 3 candidates. But these 3 candidates are still elected out by these committee members. No matter who the citizens vote for, he/she is still chosen by the Chinese government. Therefore, the movement is to fight for the real "Universal suffrage" and uphold "1 country 2 systems".

Trivia
1. Not every Hongkonger supports the movement.
2. There is hatred between some Hongkongers and mainland Chinese.
3. The movement was called "Occupy Central". After some incidents, it becomes "Umbrella Revolution".
4. The movement has no leaders.
5. The air quality in the city centers used to be the worst. Now it becomes the best.
6. It is the biggest rally of Hongkong after returning to China from Britain.
7. Original idea of umbrella is to block the pepper spray.

To know more about the movement, google "Umbrella Revolution".

This is what is ongoing in Hongkong right now. I could never imagine I would see Hongkong in this way.

Staying awake for the whole night were tiring. But it is worthy. I believe, silence equals death.

這是現在香港正在發生的事。我不能想像到在我有生之年會見證到這樣的一天。

整晚都不能好好的睡很令人疲累,但是值得的。我相信,默不作聲等於自由的死亡。

當人們沒有做任何暴力行為時,警察在沒有任何預先的若告下突然使用催淚彈。

有些人帶了些物資給所有人,例如香蕉、面具、水和口罩。

四周都是防暴警察,於是人們避走到四周,令集會由金鐘和中環抗散至旺角和銅鑼灣。

If you are one of the people, please remain peaceful, hurt no one and cause no damage to the city.
如果你是當中一員,請保持冷靜和用最平和的方式集會,不要破壞這個城市、傷害任何人。

After the rain, the sun comes

Kraków, Poland, May 2014

It was almost 5 months ago.

I came here with a school trip for 3 days. The schedule was quite intensive. We did not have enough free time to explore the city. Most of the time we just passed by the buildings. Also the weather was nasty. It rained heavily and the wind blew strongly.

But I have good memory here.

p.s. I broke 2 umbrellas in these few months in Europe. The 1st one, which is in orange, was broken in this trip with the strong wind. The 2nd one, which is in navy, was broken in Amsterdam. Before I went back to Hongkong, I bought the 3rd umbrella, which is in red.

差不多是五個月前的事了。

我跟隨學校辦的團到這裏三天。時間表很密集。我們都沒有足夠的自由時間去探索這個城市。而且很多時我們都只是經過那些建築物,沒有入內參觀。另外,天氣亦十分差。雨下得很大,風吹得很猛。

但我在這裏有很好的回憶。

p.s. 在歐洲這幾個月來我用壞了兩把傘。第一把,橙色的,在這次旅程被風吹爛。第二把,深藍色的,在 Amsterdam 被我弄爛。回香港前,我買了第三把傘,紅色的。
