Never intent to set up a blog as such but I think I like to have my little place for now.

There will be new and past materials I like to share, no particular subject but any thing I come across that interest me, and hopefully to you as a reader as well.

Opening the first thread is this very first book I bought after arriving in England. I bought it in Oxfam, and quite rightly the first Oxfam charity shop in Oxford.

I know for a fact that there have many for whatever reasons lived , visited or worked in the UK before and after me. Please feel free to share your experience with us and making this thread as a "station". Some may arrive as the final destination. Some may exchange here and move on to another "station". Few may even be lost here before finally getting way round.

No need to discuss and certainly nothing to argue about but perhaps some sweet memory and, if we have the privilege, some sad one.

Perhaps starting from today, shall we?

After a long spell of good fortune of weather, we finally see some "normal" typical English treatment today. It's cold , cloudy and spells of showers.

I was in the city today and these baskets of flowers caught my eyes......

When I tried to take another one from a different angle this attractive lady just posts voluntarily for me. I am certainly obliged to do so ^_^

So much attention has been focused on London in the past 12 months and it was also the city where I began my journey. It would only be sensible and fair to put this great(shit)city on the map first.

To be honest most(including me) local people tease London as "another foreign country in Greater London. It has more foreign residents and visitors than the local people.

It's because no ordinary people could afford to live there!!

Thanks, simpleman and aw135246.

London is great for short trips and I do enjoy the diversity it provides. Nonetheless it could be described as "Marmite", you either love it or hate it.

I used to go to London for work related matters and I always visited "Wong Kee" for their "infamous treatment". And of course these......

London has experienced many darkest days in its history and it is not always a happy place. The latest and most traumatic event must be the "Blackberry Riot" in 2011.

I spent almost 16 years of my life living on & off in the UK btw 1976 & 1991, with 11 of those in London. Still go back to London now & then, last visit was just 2 weeks ago, crowded with summer tourists & super warm on a few days.

Like most things in life there is always an art of balance. The riot showed the dark side of how life could be erupted out of control so rapidly.

Nonetheless, when there is evilness there is the chance to shine the good spirit in human.

People learnt from the lesson and they come out to show their support and determined not to let the ugliness to ruin the harmony in their community.

They come out together, White, Black and Asians; young and old; able and disabled and they united to form the force to mend the scar.

Thanks, faceface.

Most religions would say the most evil root of all is greed.

I don't think they learn much to change their behaviour though.

The usual question asked by many in R33 with regards to Hong Kong expat(expatriate) is that "why do you appear here if you don't like Hong Kong any more?".

It's not an easy question to answer, and certainly that my response is no way representative to the others. We live, we eat, we work so we do.

Let just say that you can change the nationality in your passport but you can not substitute the "Hongkongese" in you.
