The above is a piece of art work I came across somewhere in Central. It is part of a promotional art piece for an  art event coming up. I liked the idea very much and it shows that creativity can be everywhere and based on everyday items such as fries. It is often how you decode an everyday item or a moment in time that such an idea strikes you. If we fill our minds with work or stressful agendas all day long, we would miss out any encounter with creative ideas. It is rather important to sit back and relax, have a cup of coffee and reset / refresh your mind whenever possible.

No Running this time?

This is Admiralty MTR Station in Hong Kong, one of the key platforms to interchange subway lines. More than often you see people running across the platform to catch the leaving train but at the end we all line up together for the door to swing open. We spent a great deal of time waiting, for example: we wait for the bus, we wait for the taxi, we wait the the lift, we wait for food to be served, we wait in line to pay, we wait for our coffee to be made, we wait for our computers to start up, we wait for the phone to reconnect once we exit a lift, we wait the cake to be baked and the list continues. The question is, what do you usually think about when you are in the state of waiting? ...

Rush, rush,  rush, every morning we rush,
Extra 5 minutes in bed means hair I did not brush,
Onto the train we push, push and push, 
Soon someone is like slush, ice we crush
Checking out the lovely girl in front, her smile I blush
Why is my hair not brush!

Upon the night sky I stare, 
How the moon light shine and flare, 
Laugh out loud if you dare, 
Because it is the beautiful view that all I care, 
Smile from the heart as desired for the chance can be rare.

I am no artist by any standard, I am just someone who started doing Art Jamming recently for fun. After a few sessions, I started to realize how painting and writing can be so similar at times. Ideas and creativity are needed but when I use those two terms, I have no specific definition for them. In other words, I think we should not be bounded by any pre-defined definition of what a good idea is or how to judge a painting. Of course there are some "objective measures" in how to appreciate a piece of work (both writings and paintings) but we should not be fixated within that framework or for a lack of a better word, box. Think of out the box and appreciate art / works the way you like it. Writing what you feel like and painting what you have in mind at that moment. Both writing and painting are ways to express oneself. There is no right or wrong answer, just let yourself go sometimes!

With so many options out there, why on earth would the organizer of the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival (which included the commercially sponsored SaSa 2010 Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races held on the 25th July 2010) use these visual ugly barges to fence out the waterfront? I bet it cost dearly to hire those commercially run barge to just anchor there for the 2 -3 days of the event. Again, there are so many other options, more visually appealing options I am sure! Did I mention the organizer of the event is the Home Affairs Department of the HKSAR government? Way to go Hong Kong aka Asia's World City!

Am I going to sleep tonight??

A coffee a day, keeps your sleepy away,
Two coffee a day, you are going to have a very long day,
Three coffee a day, you better be doing something that involves a long essay,
Four coffee a day, I want to know what explanation you are going to say, 
Five coffee a day, please stop before you start jumping happily like it is your sweet 16 birthday!

Kiss Kiss!

Exactly how many types of kisses are there? Well please don't get me wrong, I am talking about kiss of love, kiss of affection, kiss of friendship or even kiss of respect; not the techniques of kiss like French Kiss. It is rather interesting to study the symbol of kiss in different cultures and how such an act is being interpreted based on their social norms and customs. Oh right, what about the act of kissing across different species? A rather interesting research topic indeed! So when was the last time you kissed?

Hong Kong


Hong Kong can be summarized in this single picture in my opinion. The Junk symbolizes the old Hong Kong when it was under colonial times as a fishing harbour. The symbol of the junk can be found in many places such as bills of certain value. IFC standing tall at the back represents the current status of Hong Kong as one of the major international finance centers. However, I am pretty sure that it is no news to anyone that the city relies heavily on the finance, property and service sectors for its sustainable growth over the past ... 2 - 3 decades perhaps. Is such status going to change soon? I have no idea, but sooner or later, sooner the better in my opinion. If it is to change, how well will Hong Kong cope? .... to be continued ...

New Project!


I am going to start a new project! I will start posting a photo every day (at least try to ... ) and write something about the picture, be it a story or my feelings of it. I guess this idea is nothing new, I am sure the same concept has been out there many years ago but to me it is a step forward in expressing myself in a way that suited me. Let the project begins!

I came across the following passages while reading about biscuits, the story of producing biscuits to be exact in Alain De Botton's recent work titled: "The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work." I find it quite interesting and true how he relates the topic and expresses his views towards the meaning of work.
