Play My Blues – Tommy Chung & The All Blues

Just like most of the people in Hong Kong, running out of space is always one of the major issues. Months ago, I decided to convert (or rip) all my Compact Discs to digital format. Over the past 30 to 40 days, I have ripped around 300+ CDs and now it came to its final stage.

又是土地問題,早前決定要把家中所有音樂CD轉成數碼檔案。經歷數十天,完成了約三佰多隻CD,今晚終於踏入尾聲。

2020 Review 回顧 / 2021 Resolutions 展望

Back in early 2020, I had not written any review post for year 2019 or resolutions for the coming year. Partly because I was very busy running my own takeaway shop, but the major reason was that I was feeling down at that time, couldn’t charge up to work out any plan for myself.

2020 年初,我沒有為已過去一年埋數,更沒有訂下新的一年目標,除了是忙於食店的事務外,主要是因心情低落,提不起勁去思考來年的方向。

A Brighter Tomorrow 明天會更好

My family had another hike on Christmas Eve, or to be more exact, morning of Christmas Eve. This looked like kind of strange Christmas celebration, but we can’t help as this is the norm of the year. You can’t go abroad, no group gathering, and probably hiking is a more safe activity. However, my family still have to go in group of two, in order not to violate the social gathering ban and got arrested.

2020 年的平安夜,其實只是早上的日子,和家人去了行山。沒法子,經歷了不一樣的一年,外遊不得,朋友聚會又不可以,戶外行山應該較安全,只是一家人仍要分成二人一組,避免違反限聚令而被捕。

Starting Advertisement in My Blog 賣廣告

When my blog has accumulated 50000 pageviews, I had written a milestone post to mark this little achievement of my blogger journey. Other than this, I had also started taking Advertisement.

十一月中在我的網誌完成了50000次瀏覽的目標後,我寫了一篇里程碑的文章,作為我博客人生上的一個小小標記。除此之外我還做了一件事,就是為我這個網誌開啟賣廣告之門。

Om

My friend has shared with me her first self filmed video tonight. To my surprise, she managed to present the solid contents fluently for more than 20 minutes without any preparation. Seems like this budding KOL is full of potential.

朋友今晚分享了她第一次自拍的視頻,在沒有任何事前準備下,除了內容充實外,她亦能流暢地演繹了二十多分鐘,看來這個末來 KOL 潛質真不可低估。

End of an era 時代的終結

A friend of mine told me last night that she would get a new TV for Digital TV Broadcast service. This reminded me the old Analog TV Broadcast service will come to an end effectively on 1 of December.

朋友昨晚談到要買電視接上數碼電視網絡,令我不其然想起舊式模擬電視廣播會在十二月一日正式停播。

Hiking Route – Tsing Yi Nature Trails 青衣自然徑

I normally went hiking in the Mount Parker country park, which is easily accessible and with sufficient distance as a workout. Hiking in the New Territories seems to be rare to me but I had one with my old classmates in Tsing Yi last month.

平日行山大部分時間都會到柏架山,主要是因爲交通方便又有足夠的路程。相對在新界的路線則較為少去,但在過去的十月尾便與老同學們到遠方的青衣島走了一轉。

Windows PC WIFI / Bluetooth Upgrade 無綫網絡/藍芽升級

Early in September, I had upgraded my old Windows based Intel NUC with a SSD. It ran swiftly for all my day-to-day works except one thing, Wireless network support is still missing. In case I would like to use the NUC as a multimedia player, this will impose some constraints especially on cabling and device placement.

早前為家中的 Intel NUC 更換了 SSD 後,日常運作已非常暢順,用起來亦很稱心。稍為美中不足是欠缺無綫網絡的支援,如要作其他用途,在擺位及網路配線上便較不方便。

Milestone 里程碑

On 18 October 2017, I published my first post on this blog.

For a typical techie like me, taking up blogging might seem a little bit wired and quite a lot of my friends were really surprised.

2017年10月18日,我在這裏發放了人生的第一篇文章。

對於一個從讀書、工作都是典型 Techie 的我,入手寫網誌是一個很奇怪的開始,亦令身邊很多朋友感到驚訝。

Long Forgotten 久違了

It has been about two weeks since my boy’s school resumed lessons. Other than having to get up earlier to take him to school, I have the luxury to have more spare time in the morning.

As we did not have any outdoor activities for quite a while, my wife suggested to visit the Mount Parker Country Park today.

不經不覺間兒子回校上課已兩星期多,除了要早點起來陪他上學外,早上卻多了些空閒時間。

很久沒有往外走,今天太太建議到柏架山郊野公園行山。

Let’s Talk About the 4:6 Method

Making a good hand drip or pour over coffee demands good understanding of coffee bean, grind level, coffee to water ratio and various pour over techniques, etc. Beginners or average coffee brewers like me will probably overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of information, jargons and techniques available over the Internet.
