Hampton Court Park and River Thames Ride 漫遊漢普敦公園、泰晤士河

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.

踏入九月,早上氣溫已降至大約十五、十六度,雖有一點點的涼意,但又未至於寒冷。兒子悠長的暑假剛結束,再重返校園,既然閒著便與太太到附近踩單車,順便找尋新的路線。

上次去了 Barge Walk,今次嘗試往漢普敦公園(Hampton Court Park)走走。

My Boy’s New MTB 兒子的全新攀山單車

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。

TV Watching in UK 英倫睇電視

As the one who spends most of the time working with computers, it has been a very long time since I last sat down to watch the television. The recent self isolation period seemed to be the longest time that I spent on the television.

人生大部分時間對著電腦的我,已經很久未試過坐低正式看電視,剛到英國頭十天的隔離可算是近年比較多看電視。

First Ride in UK 英倫踩單車:落地篇

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.

我的單車回到身邊差不多有三個星期,但不知何故,總是欠點動力出去走一敞。

昨晚睡得不太好,晨早起來又沒法再入睡,決定出去走走。

Cycling in UK 英倫踩單車

The last riding I had was the time I waved goodbye to my old classmates and cycling buddies back in end March this year. As all my belongings had already been picked up by the international relocation company in mid-March, I had to rent another road bike from the bicycle shop. With quite a big difference in the components and bike settings, that 50+ Km bike ride seemed to be much harder than before. My muscles got sore and it took me few days to fully recover.

對上一次踩單車已是今年三月尾,亦是我的與一眾老同學和車友門道別的一天。而跟移民隨行的物品包括我的單車已在月中經國際搬運公司裝箱,當天只好在相熟單車店租用另一部 road bike。由於租用的單車與我自己的在配置及設定有頗大差異,那天五十多公里的行程踩得較辛苦,肌肉亦酸痛了好幾天。

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。

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。

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。

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。

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”.
