Stepping into September, the temperature had slightly dropped to around 15 or 16 ℃. A little bit cool but not that cold. Just as my son had back to school, my wife and I went our for cycling in nearby areas. Some exercise for both of us as well as to search for new cycling routes.
Last week, I rode with my son along Barge Walk. This time, my wife and I would go cycling in the Hampton Court Park.
上次去了 Barge Walk，今次嘗試往漢普敦公園（Hampton Court Park）走走。
In my previous post, I had talked about getting a new bike for my son. This not only allowed him to ride with me during holidays but also help to reduce playing online games at home. After several rounds of product research and shop visits, I finally got his new bike last Saturday.
早前提過要為兒子買單車，除了放假時能與他出外遊玩，亦可盡量減少他留在家中玩 online games，經歷數輪資料搜集及實體店舖拜訪，上星期六終於收到新車。
It has been almost three weeks after my bikes were delivered. Nevertheless, I lack the motivation to go for a ride.
I did not sleep well last night and could not fall asleep again after waking up early in the morning, so I decided to go for a ride.
We’ve been to UK for two months and most of the times were spent on arranging those bits and pieces of living here. Quite a lot of the works could only be done one at a time and not much shortcut are available for speeding up. With the amount of planning and arrangement, I didn’t have much spare time and couldn’t afford to timely update my blog.
Given that most of the works needed to be done had been settled recently, let me resume the sharing of my UK immigration.
Taking long haul flight is definitely not my cup of tea and the only times were those trips to Europe. Due to time zones difference, most of these flights leave Hong Kong in midnight. Passengers normally went to sleep shortly after the take-off and rushed to the immigration upon arrival next morning.
In consideration of the adverse impact brought about by covid-19, our mid-night flight to UK was rescheduled by BA to the afternoon.

Once the booking of the ABRSM Performance Grade Examination has been made, candidate or his/her guardian has to upload the performance examination recording to the ABRSM Portal.
完成了 ABRSM Performance Grade Examination (英國皇家音樂學院表演評級術科考試) 的預約後，考生需要於選定的限期內呈交錄影到 ABRSM 的考試網站。
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.
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.
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。
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.
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。
Hello guys! It has been a long time since my last blog!
Today I’m going to share some interesting rules in Mathematics that is about “How to determine whether a given integer is divisible by a fixed divisor without actually performing the division”.
I have a 6 years old desktop Windows PC in my home that is mainly used by my wife. However, as my little boy is getting older and needed to use the computer as well, it became quite inconvenient to have them sitting in front of the desktop. I ended up buying notebook computers for them subsequently.
Despite that desktop PC is a little bit old, it still got the works perfectly done if just for daily home use or web surfing. The only downside is the slow PC startup time and that’s why I decided to replace the hard disk with a SSD.
家中一台已購置六年多的桌面 Windows PC 主要是給太太使用，但隨著兒子長大並開始接觸電腦，要他們安坐書枱前便有點不太方便，於是便轉用了筆記簿電腦。
我在上一篇關於開學的 post 講過一般家庭如有數位適齡學童，要為他們購置電腦或平板電腦作遙距上課會構成一定的經濟壓力。
臺灣單車環島這個念頭是在 2014 年中開始在心𥚃湧現，亦是我愛上公路車之後的一個夢想。
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。
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. […]
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.
星期三（七月四日）下午，離開樟宜國際機場後，我們乘旅遊巴到旅程的第一站 – 新加坡理工大學 (Singapore Polytechnic)。 新加坡導遊Jessy小姐在車上講解新加坡文化和歷史，同學們都聽得津津有味。約30分鐘後，車子已經到逹目的地。眼前的理工大學樓高五層，非常壯觀，環境寧靜，絶對是一個理想的學習地方。我們一行40人，由Jessy小姐帶領到一樓圖書館參觀。 在圖書館裏，我看見了很多遊戲設施和一間小房間。 一位當地老師出來介紹每一樣設施，包括： 單車 彈珠機 籃球機 足球機 發光二極管乒乓球機 幸運輪 遊戲機 … 他們全都是理工大學學生採用不同物料用心合力製作出來的。 此外，那間小房原來是研究鐳射的，鐳射可以用來裁剪不同的物料，例如：𥿄張，膠板，玻璃，連鋼板也可以切割，真是厲害啊！ 老師講解完畢後，就是三小時自由活動。我急不及待地和同學們一起玩彈珠機，非常刺激有趣； 之後我又玩了發光二極管乒乓球機，它是一個玩法非常困難的遊戲，但我卻十分喜歡，所以玩了很久。其他同學也玩得不亦樂乎，房間裏充滿大家的歡笑聲。時間過得很快，我聽到老師的召喚聲後，就知道要離開這裏。我只好懷著依依不捨的心情地離開。 這次參觀，我認識了一些和STEM有關的知識，此外我很羡慕新加坡理工大學的學生們能發揮自己的創意，做出不同趣味的遊戲，我希望將來也能成為他們的一分子呢！😍😍
