There was this place in my dream. Next to a lake there was a building – ten or so storeys – beautifully designed and whose shape reflected on the surface of the lake. About six o’clock in the evening, the light turned on and it illuminated the surrounding area. When the building shined, so did the lake surface.
The ‘building reflection in the lake’, so they called it. That was no any other ordinary place. The locals around the area said the building shone– other than the illumination brought by lights – because local artists often held performances there. Continue reading “The place I dreamt of”
I bought printed issues of The Economist every now and then. If an issue published several interesting topics, I would buy it at bookstore. The Economist publishes quarterly reports and special reports are particularly interesting.

The top of the list is whether the United States, with the help of China and South Korea, is able to force North Korea to return to negotiation table.

Translation: The Secretary earning more than HK$300,000 (US$38,000) a month has to eat poorly, spare no time to enjoy good and nutritious food, so that he can focus on his work to keep Hong Kong’s unique system running.

I have an ACER Aspire laptop which I bought in 2009, and an ASUS A555L laptop which I bought in early 2016.
Recently I have the CD players of both laptops replaced and they are now running well again. Many might feel curious as to why there is a need to fix a laptop, given that new laptops are selling cheap in Malaysia. With below MYR 2,000 you can get quite good laptops already.
