Indoor Bike Trainer 室內自行車訓練台

It has been about four years since I first seriously took up cycling.  From the early days where I could only ride a few kilometers per trip to the round-Taiwan cycling challenge years ago, I have developed quite a regular cycling habit. However, with the tremendous workload before I retired plus the occasional adverse weather condition, I can hardly keep up with the regular exercise … 騎自行車已有四年多,由最初每次只能騎乘數公里至今天已完成過臺灣環島,其間需要養成恒常的騎乘訓練,高峯期保持每星期兩天。但隨著早幾年工作量的增加,再加上要舟車勞頓到新界騎乘,很多時候都未能維持每週一次。如果天氣不佳,下大雨或受持續性的寒冷天氣影響,更易令人放棄 …

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.

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 …
