Urban Sketching – HSBC Headquarters 速寫香港

Sunday is a happy day for Hong Kong’s domestic helpers. It is their weekly off day, a day to gather with friends, speak in their own language, dance, manicure/pedicure, play bingo/poker cards/mah-jongg, haircut, do cross-stitching, you name it.  The Central HSBC headquarters is one of the most crowded spots for their Sunday gathering. I enjoyed my time being there today to make a sketch, while listening to their dance music, watching illegal hawkers being chased, and feeling the warm summer breeze.

Thanks to my friend who accompanied me while I was sketching. We saw a different side of Hong Kong today.

Morning Train 地鐵一景

While heading to work. This is what I see.

I bet the life inside their smart phones must be so extraordinary. I bet things are far more interesting than what’s going on inside the train. So much so that I received zero eye contact from the people standing in front of me.

I should wear a pokemon costume next time. Perhaps that can steal their attention from phone screens, for 3 seconds.

油麻地果欄

對油麻地果欄的印象,除了那些林林總總的水果外,那些用來搬運一箱又一箱水果的木甲板都是令人難忘的風景。在果欄能夠看到來自世界各地的水果品種,光欣賞已經賞心悅目。未有外遊計劃不要緊,嘗嘗從當地孕育的,吸收大地精華後渡洋而來的果物,也是一種幸福。

的士 Taxi

<的士>

的士上的士落(不是倒夜香)得最狠的時間,

是最沒有時間,最無助的一剎。

揮揮手便看到救星到來,

是身處繁忙城市的少數優點之一。

能夠可以睡/玩/吃/談久一些,

全因的士乘載的是我們的任性。

Newsstand 報紙攤檔

曾經有位台灣人告訴我對香港的最大印象是報紙攤檔。 未有互聯網的年代,我們都會付錢去買報紙雜誌,有過期待的經驗都是一種幸福。 今日我已經不再需要付錢去買報紙,同時亦失去了那種幸福。

I miss those days when we got our news not from our iPhones but from the newsstands. Remember the time when we had to pay for the news?
