Life at Sing Ping 昇坪生活

This is not the life desirable to everyone, but I am one of those who love such a life. A balanced society should have its own rural area to provide the agricultural products as well as an outlet for holiday retreats. I oppose the government’s move to scrape the farmlands in north-eastern New Territory for whatever excuses!
這不是人人都想過的生活,但我就是這種生活的愛好者之一。一個均衡的社會應該有自己的鄉郊去提供農產品和假日的減壓空間,我反對政府以任何藉口去剷平新界東北的田地!

誰人的新界 Whose New Territory

誰人的新界

再談我們今天的新界不是叫人太傷感了嗎? Don’t you think it is too sentimental to talk about New Territory today?

Critique of Critics

“What we need is a critique of visual culture that is alert to the power of images for good and evil and that is capable of discriminating the variety and historical specificity of their uses.” – W.J.T. Mitchell. Picture Theory (1994).
According to Mitchell critique of photography should be as straight forward as he has put, however after nearly twenty years, critics of our time seem to have worked in the opposite direction.

龍年祝願 Well Wishes for the Year of the Dragon


龍長久以來盤踞著中華文化,就連已慶祝了五十週年的共產主義祖國,對這種由封建或資本主義思想製造出來的精神鴉片還是採取一種視而不見的態度。看見人們對龍年的熱忱,特別是那些選擇在龍年產子,和那些愛將自已生肖屬龍掛在嘴邊的人,就令我開始懷疑「人人平等」的精神到底能否在這個國度內落地生根,還是只會被供奉在花瓶之內?單單生來就高人一等的想法,對任何人來說都是一種不會引起任何罪惡感的誘惑,因為這好像是很合乎自然的事情。是的,生來聰敏或健碩過人都是一種天賦。但為此而終日奔走強求便值得我們去反思,特別是在香港社會正因龍年而要面對來自大陸雙非孕婦潮沖撀的時候,我們更應好好地以現代的目光來重新昇華我們的傳統文化。

Dragon has long been perching on the Chinese culture, such that even our communist mother country that has celebrated its fifty anniversary has chosen not to negate this particular grain of spiritual opium planted by our feudal or capitalistic ancestors. Looking at people’s enthusiasm towards the Year of the Dragon, particularly those who are prepared to give birth of their off springs, and those who are more than happy to reveal their Zodiac Sign of this mighty animal, I started to wonder will the ideology of “all man are equal” ever flourish in our country, or will it merely find its existence in a vase. The sheer belief of “born to be superior” is a temptation to every soul that won’t stir any guilty feelings at all, since it appears to be as natural as it can be. Yes, born to be wiser or stronger is a gift of nature, but to crave for it with all efforts is a behavior that we should give it a second thought, particularly in the light of the pressure that our society will have to face for an influx of non-resident mainland pregnant women in the Year of the Dragon, I think it is the prime time to re-sublime our culture in a modern light.

Tiananmen and the Post 90’s

The Post 90’s, the candlelit, the Tienanmen Square, all unified into a harmonious piece in Hong Kong. All they want is nothing more than a humble wish, as to see their government rectify its own mistake.
