The Beauty of Paris & the Brilliance of Baron Haussmann

Paris: Elle est belle. She is beautiful. Her story is embedded within the 40.7 square miles that her beauty marks on Earth. Her streets are like the paths of a maze that lead to amazement, whether that amazement manifests into the well-known La Tour Eiffel or Notre Dame de Paris, amongst others. 638 more words

Checkmate

This Acropolis? Building? Castle? Or whatever it was engraved into the side of the mountain couldn’t possibly have been the place I was looking for. This compound stretches the entire street encompassing everything as far as the eye could see on both sides. 837 more words

Sri Lanka

Things I dislike:

The budge accommodation in Sri Lanka is very basic and yet pricey(comparing the price for food and transportation). Rooms usually with smelly bed sheets, sometimes no hot water, often lousy wifi, are charged at about US$15 per night. 343 more words

Some Thoughts

今天巳經是農曆正月十一,新年也過得七七八八了。

今年是羊年,羊則總是「咩咩」的叫。

突然香港多了一句祝賀說話:「祝你發到咩咁」

「咩」,固然是羊的叫聲,但在廣東話中,「咩」有點萬用百搭的功能。

可以是「什麼」、「怎樣」的意思,也像英語中的 You know 般。

「這衣服有什麼顏色?」就是「嚟件衫有咩顏色?」

「這樣做有點那個。」就是「咁做有啲咩喎。」

哈利波特裡的費地魔既然也被稱為 you-know-who 以避免把他名字說出口,說笑的話廣東話可以叫他作「咩魔」。

「發到咩咁」即是發到怎樣誰都不知。咩是什麼程度其實也不重要。

反正,祝賀你發財就是。

Patreon and Self Publishing

Lately, I’ve been thinking a bit on how I’m going to go about publishing my work. I’m not really in the state to publish anything right now, but I like to think that I will be at one point (and hopefully soon). 1,099 more words
