Rest in peace to those who died during the hostage crisis in Manila yesterday.

Well in my last entry I had promised a report on my trip as soon as I get back.
It's actually been more than two weeks since I've gotten back, but with last minute
catching up of summer homework, taking my friend (who came to visit) shopping,
and just my usual procrastinating in general, I did not find a chance to write this entry
until now, and by now I realized that as much as Shanghai is just a bigger version of
where I live with less Cantonese people and more H&Ms, I do miss it, and I regret
not taking photos of a few places that are not particularly special but will make anyone,
tourist and local alike, feel snug and right at home, which for me, cannot be found often
in the crazily populated China (which I had far too much experience of this summer).

Alright end of the sentimental confessions, let's begin~

I went to Shanghai because I had to attend a course in a loooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng
building facing the Suzhou River (the classroom only occupied about a tenth of this loooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng building, two tenths was occupied by a bar,
and the rest was occupied by the post office). This place is actually quite close to
the Bund, so for the first three days I would trot across the river as soon as class
ends and explore the winding streets around the Bund. Even though there were a
lot of tourist traps (including the infamous Nanjing Road, where I was unable to
cross the first day because of a sudden bombardment of tourists), many of the
streets were empty and perfect for a stroll before dinner.




This street leads to the immensely populated Bund. When I was done
taking this picture I saw three tourist ladies walking down the road. I stood
aside to let them past, and suddenly a swarm of tourists came down like elephants.
I had to wait for a minute before I found a place to squeeze past them.





For those of you who don't understand Chinese,
the character on the windows is the Chinese character for "demolish".
When I was walking down this street, I heard an old Chinese tourist who was
walking in the opposite direction with his family say, "This is such a beautiful building!
Why are they destroying it?" I felt amused and sad at the same time.




This is horribly blurry picture is of a beautiful old apartment near the Bund. I
regret that I did not taking a picture of it when there was still light.




I took this on the way back to my hotel. Even though the view
here was nice, this place is radically different from the Bund.
There was almost no one here save for a
few bikers and a few passing French tourists.


Other notable places in this area include
Ningbo Road, which is practically a market.
Vendors sold vegetables right on the road, totally ignoring
the presence of cars (luckily there weren't many),
and the rest of the street was filled with people
walking or biking home clad with their groceries of the day.
I ate BBQ pork rice (microwaved) at a restaurant there
and finally heard Cantonese being spoken by people who
are not tourists. Of course, there is also Family Mart,
the cafe where I got internet access, the fruit store that played
old Jay Chou songs, and the bakery that deserves more attention
than it seems to be getting. I regret not taking pictures of these places.

Is this the end of my report? 'Course not. Stay tune for more tomorrow!


上海~

Hey fellas,

I am in Shanghai right now,

it's so grey all the time because of the rain,

but it's also very cool, so it's very comfortable!!

I don't have a computer with me,

and I just found this cafe that provides internet access,

but it's not cheap,

so I will take longer than usual to reply to messages, sorry!!!

I will write a more detailed entry about my trip when I get back~^^

剛剛從火爐逃離到雪櫃,
差點就要變成剛才在吃的雪糕一樣。
想想前一年的夏天可能是喝San Pellegrino,
我發現我開始有洗錢恐懼恐症,
真不錯。

FIFA!

Last night I was watching the match

that everyone was facebooking about today:

the match between Germany and Argentina.

The results are of course, inevitable,

because as we FIFA followers all know this year:

blue=sayonara world cup,

Mick Jagger was present,

and most importantly, Paul had chosen!

We also know that:

NONE OF THESE THINGS MATTER!

Germany was unbelievably amazing last night,

'nuff said.

Now go protect Paul from hungry Argentinian sports reporters.

夏休み♪

So summer has started and my one week of true vacation is ending soon.

The upcoming weeks are going to be suffocating with test preps

and art assignments and a long long essay along with late night

World Cup sessions and midday replays of My Bloody

Valentine's "When You Sleep" on my stereo.

Fellas, check out My Bloody Valentine when you

can. It is pure magic.

剛開始認識銀魂時,
只以為是一般的無聊+無厘頭的動畫片,
所以沒什麼興趣看。
後來因為想跟朋友有更多話題所以開始看。
現在我既然比朋友們更愛銀魂。
除了它那超級無厘頭的笑料,
最讓銀魂吸引我的應該是它的文化內涵吧。

你沒看錯,銀魂是有內涵的。

雖然被外星人侵略過的江戶將那裡
人的生活變得跟現代東京人的生活沒兩樣,
不過我看了100多集,我還是覺得
銀魂的江戶不只是現代東京+和服+
傳統日本建築。

反正對我來說,這個江戶是最美好的江戶。

現在我看日本雜誌,電視劇,或者電影時,
最讓我感到開心的地方是看到有傳統日本東西的畫面,
無論是穿著西式衣服走在充滿傳統建築的小巷的人,
穿著和服慶祝祭典的舞者,
還是穿著和服走在那充滿西式建築的商業區裏的女人,
我看到後都會感到一種安慰感。
因為對我來說,現在的日本,甚至現在的亞洲,
好像什麽都要追隨著西方,
非要變成西方人不可似的。
西方文化當然有很多值得欣賞的地方,
不過怎麼追隨,
到頭來只是一種模仿。
真正的文化內涵其實就在那些破舊和老土的傳統裏面。
銀魂最成功的地方就是沒有把這些傳統排除掉。

希望大家也能如此尊重传统。

今日除左用銀魂63集廣東話版阿樂果句金詞離形容真系無法形容。

今朝,我忙住體語文課要體既書兼等巴士時突然感覺到

腳有D当跌左上去。

一望,

一PEK白色既野,

帶著些少灰,

有D似老豆D煙灰。

體真D,

原來是
























雀屎!

跟住下午巴士第一個站到時,

"My tart! Who crushed my tart?!"

Yup. I went to watch Alice in Wonderland

on Monday. It was in 3D so my head

throbbed like mad when I walked out of the theater.

It was totally worth it though, because

even though the story wasn't brilliant,

the art and characters are.

I want a Chesire Cat now please and thank you.







Bought this yesterday.

It was love at first sight.
