Borgen

even though Danish sounds quite harsh, with subtitles, you will not notice it anymore.

binge-watched 3 episodes last night already.

addictive!

perfetti sconosciuti


在微博看到的推薦。
有人說未婚和已婚人士觀前都要慎重。
還有人特地留言說「看完會懷疑人生」。

好奇,遂觀之。

毫無懷疑人生之感。實在就是平常得不能再平常的歐洲電影好嗎?!

有一種可能是,留言的那位,大型聲光電3D IMAX上的電影看得太多,囉。

吾友咪小姐名言有曰:腦子是個好東西。

同期推薦《force majeure》。

Sans titre

It was my laziness in the beginning, then combined with an unfortunate incident, i.e., my cellphone fell into the toilet... Now am unable to share the pictures from my middle-east trip.

One thing for sure, with the advancement of technology, we rely way too much on machines...

Anyway, Jerusalem was great, too bad I am not religious.

en ce moment …









for Android users, an app that keeps me happy. Radio classique,  now a stand alone, more efficient than an all-in-one.

for a more generic one, I have "France Radio" from south apps…also good.

每日一讀 —— 好書推薦

真心笑爆嘴的好推薦。
《這不是你想的藝術書》,點這裡
但再說真的,出版物從寫稿、改稿、上報、審批、印刷、出版,流程頗長。
他有一系列神話故事,可以自行前往作者微博或者微信(ID: grandpagu) 閱讀。
嗯。
是的,不用客氣。
另:看書時,請勿飲水。
Enjoy!

picturesque scenery















@cliffs of moher

i won't be complaining about the weather at all.
it's just windy and cloudy, not raining. so there's not much to complain about.

in the end, there was for a very brief while, it got all cleared up. i could stand there forever to see the waves washing ashore, if i don't get blown off the cliff into the atlantic ocean.

sans titre

my friends who were here on expat packages were sent back home to germany, the US, france etc. germany and japan are the two largest countries who send expats to live in shanghai. (source: unknown, but i did read about it somewhere in the paper) so far i have heard quite a few friends' kids who go to international schools busy attending farewell parties.

this, as i see it, is a signal of slowing down of the economy. although it is still generating much growth (~7.5%), the rate of growth has not been double digits as we have seen couple of years ago. 

there's also a very strong signal sent by the government of this anti-corruption campaign. extra measures had been taken to ensure that all's clear about this message. you should see how cautious the civil servants have become these days at business dinners. in some areas, things are getting tougher, too. e.g. getting permits, grants... but i do think it as a positive thing. at least it is starting to change.

other than that, doing business is getting much harder AND much easier these days. e-business is clearly the thing to do, but if you start now, you've already missed the opportunity to gain big bucks. 

what's coming up next is unknown, but i am sure with the rise of the post-90s, there must be newer, more exciting and creative things. it's only how you seize the opportunity and best utilise it when it does come.
