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.

To all the Ladies that I’ve Loved Before

説真的,我那有膽量在這𥚃公開談論愛過的 她、她 和 她 ⋯ 而這裡所指的 "她" 是很多男士心中的至愛 - 車!

我的咖啡回憶

我是怎樣開始飲咖啡呢? 想了很久也沒有一點頭緒,可能真的是太久遠了!

Things To Do In My Next Visit to Taiwan 下次到台灣應該做甚麼?

自今年二月初暫停外國人士入境,台灣政府會於明天(6月29日)開始放寬符合特定條件的人士入台,此階段主要是基於商務及依親的需要,相信旅遊入境稍後亦會恢復。 上次到台灣是今年一月中,轉眼間又差不多半年了,心裏有點癢,希望盡快可以再回去探朋友及遊灠。在家數月,閒來上網也留意到很多台灣相關的資訊,先來個整理,為稍後再到台灣作好準備。

疫情中的生活點滴(二)

疫情對民生的另一影響是很多公共服務都處於全部或部份停止運作,公共圖書館服務就是一個好例子。

疫情中的生活點滴 (一)

武漢肺炎在全球肆瘧了好一段日子,香港人從 2003年 SARS 慘痛的回憶中做好了這次的抗疫工作,現時情況亦漸趨穏定;然而這個疫症對我們的生活或多或少總帶來一些改變。 就像今天回到醫院覆診一樣,也和之前的很不一樣。

Turning Raspberry Pi into Shop Display 樹莓批電子餐牌顯示

Shortly after my retirement, I had bought a number of Raspberry Pi Single Board Computer for fun and DIY works. Projects that I had engaged included network based time-lapse camera and multi-nodes Docker Clusters. Later on, as I needed to focus on running my own cafe, all my Pi projects were shelved. In my current setup of the cafe, I do have an electronic display system built on top of the Raspberry Pi. Relaxed and let me share with you my shop display box. 剛退休時買了數片 Raspberry Pi (樹莓批)單板電腦,學習製作一些簡單的 DIY projects。先後做過些網絡縮時攝影機、Docker Cluster。後來因為需要集中精神攪好我的食店,只好暫時放下。 其實在食店內我也有利用 Raspberry Pi 整合了我的電子顯示屏,就在這𥚃和大家分享一下。

Downgrade 降級

家中的單車訓練台已設置兩年多,主角之一是帶領我踏入公路單車的 Giant TCR SLR1 及一對高性能 Fulcrum Racing Zero 輪組。把這對 Racing Zero 屈就在訓練台上,總是覺得有點可惜。 最近終於決定為 SLR1 來過 "降級"。 I have my indoor bike training platform for more than two years. The focus of the setup is the Giant TCR SLR1 that led me to the world of road cycling, and the set of high performance Fulcrum Racing Zero wheel-system. Frankly speaking, there should be much better use of the Racing Zero rather than leaving it as part of the indoor training setup. Recently, I have made up my mind to "Downgrade" my SLR1.

Unboxing – Round Three 第三次的開箱

I have written several unboxing posts covering life-style and IT related topics this month. To keep up the momentum, I have just completed another one. 這個五月已經寫了多編不同性質的開箱文,有生活閒情,也有資訊科技;那就不要讓熱情停下來,再來一編吧。

Unboxing 開箱 – Notebook Computer for Distance Learning 遙距上課的手提電腦

隨著武漢肺炎的發展,市民日常生活、工作等全受影響,學生亦被迫留在家中,學習也停下來。面對持續的疫情,在家工作已是上班一族的主要工作模式;而網上學習也變作學生之日常。 家中小老闆停學了差不多四個月,最近亦開始踏入遙距上課的步伐。 With the widespread of the Wuhan Virus, we are required to stay at home and our daily life got seriously affected. Works had been put on hold and school life suspended. Work-from-home becomes major mode of work for adults and distance learning being adopted for students. My boy has been away from school for nearly four months and has jumped on the video conferencing bandwagon recently.

Iced Coffee 凍咖啡

踏入五月,氣溫飆升,日間溫度接近三十度,再加上一件件不可思議,荒謬絕倫的事天天活現眼前,更令人覺得心情煩燥,就來個冰凍咖啡降降溫吧。 今次要飲的不是普通加了冰的咖啡,而是冰滴咖啡。那和近日頗受關注的冷萃咖啡又有甚麼關係呢? Stepping into May, the weather is getting hotter and hotter. Along with those inconceviable and ridiculus things happened everyday, I got anxious very easily. Having a glass of cold coffee may make me feel relieved. The coffee I'm going to have is not just coffee served with ice, it is the Cold Drip Coffee instead. So how is it related to the Cold Brew Coffee that got much attention in these days?

BKOOL – A Subscription Based Virtual Cycling Platform

While social distancing is the way to go to minimise the spreading of COVID-19 among people, most of our daily activities are seriously affected. In particular, we have already stopped group riding for the past few weeks. Instead of going outdoor, virtual cycling becomes my next best thing to do.

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。
