Turnip Rice Pudding (Lo Bak Gou) for Chinese New Year 賀年傳統食品 – 蘿蔔糕

Time flies, the Chinese New Year is coming and my wife suggested to prepare some festival food for celebration. There are a lot of traditional foods like Crispy Pastry Dumpling (Yau Kok), Sesame balls (Gin Dui), Glutinous Rice Cake (Lin gou) and Turnip Rice pudding (Lo Bak Gou).

Apple iMac Mid-2011 RAM and SSD upgrade

Extending My Old iMac’s life 令我的舊iMac回復青春

My first Apple iMac has been running for more than 6 years and is still doing its very best to support my normal day-to-day works. To be honest, 6-year is a very long time for a computer and my iMac starts to show its deficiency - start-up very slowly and unable to handle those resources intensive works like multimedia editing and program development … 不經不覺中,我的第一部Apple iMac桌上電腦已替我工作了六年多。日常工作它仍然升任,不會令你失望,只是歳月留痕,令它慢慢的追不上時代的步伐了,每次起動都需要花上十數分鐘。近來亦多了用它作視頻編輯及程式的開發,更令它吃不消 …

Hiking around the Hong Kong Island

Round the Hong Kong Island 徒步環香港島

Two years ago, I took another challenge - Walk around the Hong Kong Island in one day. Shortly after I had completed my round-the-island cycling in Taiwan in late 2015, I felt a little bit desperate and would like to look for another challenge of my life. One day while I was surfing the net, I found a young Taiwan undergraduate who spent over 40 days to walk around Taiwan all by herself. All of a sudden, an idea came to my mind - I could do this as well, of course, just in Hong Kong … 兩年前的今天,我又作出另一個挑戰 - 單日徒步環香港島。 2015年末,我剛完成第一次的臺灣自行車環島,心情有點失落,很想尋找另一個挑戰自我的目標。有一天在網上看到一位二十多歲的臺灣女大學生,用了四十多天的時間,獨自完成她的徒步環島之旅。心想,臺灣那麼大,香港這麼小;她那麼年輕,我這麼成熟,怎麼可以給小女生比下去呢 …

The weather was slightly warmer in last week which was suitable for outdoor activities.

New World First Bus Route 42; Wah Fu Estate; Ngan Dao Cafe; Silver Cafe

Hong Kong NWFB Bus Route Number 4 & 42 香港巴士路線巡禮 – 新巴4號及42號

My little boy is enthusiastic about bus routes (unlike others, he only cares about the route and the bus!) and he memories nearly all the bus routes in Hong Kong. Whenever we have spare time, he will ask me or his mother to take him for a bus ride (of course, on route designated by him). Today we have boarded route number 4 and 42 that are operated by New World First Bus. Our destination is Wah Fu Estate located in the South Western side of the Hong Kong Island … 家中小朋友自小很熱愛巴士路線(有趣的是,他只著意路線,而不是巴士!),對於本地巴士路線可説是滾瓜爛熟。閒時總要我們帶他乘搭不同的巴士路線。今天他選上的是新巴4號及42號,目的地是座落於港島西南面的華富邨 …

原味免揉麵包 Plain No-knead bread

免揉麵包,真的這樣神奇?No-knead Bread, is this a magic?

在剛過去的聖誕及新年假期,我做了好幾次的免揉麵包。材料和做法大致上都是跟隨Carol Hu的blog所述,只是在材料份量和發酵時間上作出小量修改。 In the past X’mas and New Year holidays, I have baked a number of no-knead breads using recipes from the famous blogger Carol Hu. Some minor adjustments on the proportion of the ingredients and the fermentation time were added.
