Some MORE random thoughts!

Dear iPhone users (including myself), when was the last time you did the following?
  • Finger swipe across the various pages full of apps icons, back and forth, back and forth and then back and forth again, looking for apps to click on only to realize 1o - 15 mins have lapsed already and you are still undecided? (next stop = destination!)
  • Stare at the iPhone apps icons and ended up flipping through your camera rolls for the 10 millions times for the same set of pictures taken?
  • While waiting for the next train the arrive at the boarding platform, you feel bored and take out your phone to snap pictures of incoming train? (and then flip through the pages over and over again???)
I am guilty of all the above!!!

Some random thoughts of the day

Some random thoughts of the day:
  • When queuing up for cash at ATM, it is ALWAYS the line next to you that moves faster!!!
  • Dumping your own tray / trash at fast food joints like MacD or Burger King, would it ever work in Hong Kong?
  • Holding the door for strangers, is that a kind act or stupid one to most people in Hong Kong? humm ... I guess I will continue to be the stupid one if that is the case ... I really don't mind ...

Life as I know it ... or perhaps ... Life as I KNEW it

I have been reading Alain de Botton's The Art of Travel and I somehow find the following excerpt quite fitting and "spot on" regarding how I have been feeling for quite some time since my return back to Hong Kong.

Charles Baudelaire [has a] lifelong ambivalence towards travel ... No sooner had he returned to Paris from his Mauritian trip than he began to dream once again of going somewhere else. Nothing, 'Life is a hospital in which every patient is obsessed with changing beds: this one wants to suffer in front of the radiator, and that one thinks he'd get better if he was by the window, ... [I]t always seems to me that I'll be well where I am not and this question of moving is one that I am forever entertaining with my soul.' ... The destination was not really the point. The true desire was to get away -- to go, as he concluded, 'anywhere! anywhere! so long as it is out of the world!' --- The Art of Travel by Alain de Botton, p31.

I no longer think this way, I am over that phase and turned over a new leaf; but I am certain that many out there can still relate to. I now understand that this is not the right away to life or anything for that matter. One should make the most out of your current state and move forward with hope, strength and determination.

Jason's moBlog

I really enjoy taking pictures, to capture what's happening around me aside from just the food I am eating. After so many months, I finally got myself an iPhone and I have been taking pictures / snapshots with it within hours of opening the box (even before the 1st full charge!). I am going to start a little Jason's moBlog project on the side using my iPhone and the "Best Camera" photo editing App I purchased. The applied effects are quite unique and somewhat Lomo style perhaps. Love it!
