Bun Festival

May 24th, 2007 by

Today, people flock to Cheung Chau to see the Da Jiu Festival.

Cheung Chau Bun Festival or Cheung Chau Da Jiu Festival (Traditional Chinese: 長洲太平清醮) is a traditional Chinese festival on the island of Cheung Chau in Hong Kong. It is by far the most famous of several such Da Jiu Festivals (Traditional Chinese: 包山節 or 長洲太平清醮, Jiu (醮) being a Taoist sacrificial ceremony) held by several (mostly rural) communities in Hong Kong, either annually or once every few years.

Cheung Chau’s Bun Festival, which draws tens of thousands of local
and overseas tourists every year, is staged to mark the Eighth day of
the Fourth Moon, in the Chinese calendar (usually in early May). It thus coincides with the local celebration of Buddha’s Birthday.

The Cheung Chau Bun Festival began as a fun and exciting ritual for fishing communities to pray for safety from pirates. Today this religious origin has largely been forgotten, and the festival has become a showcase of traditional Chinese culture above all else.

HK Standard Charter Marathon 2007

March 4th, 2007 by

Another year of SC Marathon held this morning, again record number of participants, record number of injured runners…

Today’s temperature is 25 c with humidity almost at 95% in the morning. Not a pleasant condition for long distance running. Luckily, the sun didn’t come up until in the afternoon.

Here, I am going to share some interesting photos that I took…

Some didn’t mind the heat and were willing to add more colors to the event.

There were very old and very young who didn’t want to miss the excitment.

And this guy - always dressed up as a waiter and ran the half marathon every year. Thou his time was slow, he got a big cheering from the spectators as he approaching the finish line.

Last but not the least, the champions of full marathon - both from Kenya! No surprise at all.
M - Steven Loruo Kamar - 2: 17′03″
F - Rose Kembo Nyangacha - 2′:38′19″

Breakfast, snack - your potential killer

March 3rd, 2007 by

This evening, a documentary TV show in Hong Kong talks about trans fat and how very little people know and care about it’s effect.

Well, every morning, we go to our local bakery store to buy our breakfast. Sometimes MacDonald during lunch and then an egg targ in the afternoon tea…

We know there are butter, grease, lard in those ingredients, they are fat alright. But little do we know the fat that these store used contains trans fat which is worst than some fat we thought.

Hiking - Tung Chung to Ngong Ping back to Tung Chung

February 22nd, 2007 by

On the 3rd day of the Chinese New Year, older people used to call this day “red mouth” means “quarrelsome” day. So people generally wouldn’t visit friends and relatives on that day.

 I chose to go hiking, relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful weather outside.

Year of Pig - what kind of people are they?

February 18th, 2007 by

Year of Pig

The twelfth animal who arrived was
the meticulous and resigned Pig.

Negative: The Boar can also be hot-tempered, pessimistic, outrageously epicurean, earthy to a fault, sardonic, snobbish, snide, authoritarian, competitive, know-it-all, stingy, victimized and sometimes downright criminally mad at the world.
