A so call "Seasoned IT Professional" who has worked for over 26 years in the Information Technology / Financial industry. One day it came to mind that should I continue to work in a fast lane or take a break. Without any hesitation, I quit my job and start my new life.

Specialty Coffee from Convenience Store

If you have read my previous post on my status update and flash visit to Taipei, you might notice a box of coffee was lying on the low left corner of the feature image. This is one of the two Specialty Coffee products available under the Taiwan 7-11 City Cafe Premium sub-brand.

Product Review Video 產品使用報告短片

Just watched a YouTube clip from one of my subscribed channels https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcKiojKWOF0Tm7tRrXFSf7Q. From the title "[幹話連篇] 飛馬601N 使用心得", this seems to be a video review of the new coffee grinder. However, it turns out that there is NO actual discussion on the Pros and Cons of the machine despite it was pulled out and pushed back a number of times. 午後有點無聊,看了一段YouTube短片。單從標題"[幹話連篇] 飛馬601N 使用心得",大家一定以為這是個全新咖啡磨豆機的用家報告。雖然片主多次的把磨豆機拉出拉入,可是直到這段短片的結尾仍然沒有討論過甚麼產品的亮點或缺點。

What a Big Surprise

One of the measures taken here in Hong Kong to address the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus is "Work from Home".  Such practice had been extensively adopted by me before my retirement. The impact to restaurants/cafes like us, that mainly served office workers, is a significant drop in business. We have to accept this as it ...

Surgical Mask, this is All I Wanted 一罩難求

Just like most of the people in Hong Kong, I queued up at a pharmacy early in the morning hoping to get some surgical masks.

Another Virtual Cycling Beta – Road Grand Tours (RGT)

Back in early 2018 when I registered for the VirtuGO Beta testing, I had also requested for participation in another virtual cycling platform testing - The Road Grand Tours (RGT) Closed Beta programme.

一點感觸 Being Touched

十二月往台北的航程不算太長,約120分鐘的飛行時間,減去起飛、進餐、降落等,實際剩餘時間不多。 由於這次在台逗留時間較長,很多日常雜務都要事先安排好,也因此前一天很晚才入睡。坐在早班機位上已覺有些累,想小睡但稍嫌不足看,電影又未必能看得完,最後决定合上眼聽點音樂,稍作休息吧。 Flight from Hong Kong to Taipei is quite short and roughly takes about 120 minutes. Excluding activities like takeover, meal serving and landing, actual flight time is really short. Since my previous trip to Taiwan lasted for more than two weeks, I had to settle all those ongoing issues before the trip. Having just few hours of sleep before leaving Hong Kong, I was a little bit tired after boarding the plane. As such a short flight time made sleeping or watching a movie not really feasible, I finally decided to take a rest and listen to some music instead.
