渡輪上看維港 a view from a ferry to north point

2015.6.26 | 維多利亞港 victoria harbour 來去土瓜灣或九龍城,最愛乘搭來回北角的渡輪。我是天星支持者,但航班實在太短程了。這航道由新渡輪承辦,船程十多分鐘,吹海風之餘,風光更是美好,從牛頭角出發,沿岸海心公園、(遠望)九龍灣、紅磡、跟著一段開闊的維多利亞港,慢慢看著東區走廊移近,最後抵達北角。出碼頭還有海鮮檔的熱鬧,整個旅程在香港懷內,但又有很不衝忙繁盛都市的感受。每次都是難忘的美麗時光。 when i need to go to kowloon city or to kwa wan, i try my best to commute by ferry. the service is provided by new world ferry. it is such an enjoyable journey, even though the vessel is a bit torn and you cannot help worrying about its […]

hoi sham park 海心公園

2013.7.7 | 土瓜灣落山道 lok shan road, to kwa wan 我是個市區人,但愛在繁忙雜亂人工林中找尋閒適自然。所以一有空,不會鑽商場,而是往公園走。 urban parks are my sanctuary. when i have some leisure time, want to go out and stretch my legs, they are my destination. commercial-soaked consumption-oriented shopping malls simply can’t beat them, even though the full-blown air-conditioning won’t lure me in the big hot summer. 只要你將心情放鬆,願意打開五官,我保證你的公園行一定有收穫:植物和小鳥一定不缺。不難發現,公園內的人,就算不是心情愉快,最少也是平逸的。 […]

過馬路 road junction

2013.5.24 | 土瓜灣路-落山道 to kwa wan road crosses lok shan road 很喜歡看馬路口的流動,人們過馬路,燈轉,停頓的車輛馬上開動。潮去潮來。 旺角、中環、銅鑼灣的大馬路,人多車多,那股力場威力無比。而在舊區,節奏閑慢,不同風光。 love the flow of movement at road junction, and there’re rhythms. light on, pedestrian push through, light changes, cars speed on. the power at big junctions at mong kok, causeway bay and central is overwhelming. at this old district, it is more gentle, like […]
