Watched The History Boy. Listening to The Chimes. I think this is the genre that HK is missing.

Just know that one of my classmate has been admitted to Harvard. Good job!

KEF Concept Blade Debut Performance

11:12 AM 0 comments

I am going to attend below Concept Blade debut performance show this weekend. Let's see how a HK$1,000,000 loudspeaker looks like. (Actually, I have tried it in private & it sounds great! The sweetest speaker I experienced.)


Update on 31 Aug:

I guess I am the youngest in the show. If you happened to be there, you could certainly spot me.

I like it play classical more, than pop/bossa nova/electric. The Four Seasons from Vivaldi is the best piece.

Sometimes, I wish Cynthia has this... I mean the tattoo. This tattoo is very philosophical, do you want it to be turn "ON" or turn "OFF"?


I've been reading your blog with great interest and admiration. Is this just a one-man band? It's extremely diverse for a Hong Kong-er and something that I'm really looking to do something like this myself albeit difficult with no readers, time and dedication.

What exactly is your purpose for doing this?
It's seems like you are some kinda of genius to make orangedays.
I enjoy your blog.

Actually, how much time have you spend on this?
Hi all, thanks for your interest.

I do Orangedays as I am forgetful on what I have done and especially read. I used to spend an hour reading news every day, but now I could only have time to do it 2 hours every week.

I do not mean to share articles with others, Orandedays is just a personal record.

About reader, the Feedburner counter is actually a count down for me. I know that this is not a perfectly legal to continue Orangedays indefinitely, thus when it reach a certain readership, I will stop it.

If possible, could I have your name? It would be nice to know you guys.
Yeh, that 1st Anon is from me.

I'd love to start something like this, would be so good to have a legion of readers~~~
Hihi, the third is me.
Hi Sunny & Candy, nice to meet you.

I am also thinking something interesting & worthwhile to do...
hah! tim! seems you have so many ano fans! well! i am now more busy like before, have no time update your blog oftenly... sometimes just iPhone on bed and after reading and fall sleep with handing orangedays...!
well... dont stop orangedays... will possible to find another way ... or..?

--cynthia leung
Hi Cynthia, sorry that Orangedays makes you fall asleep... Just kidding. :)

I guess there is still a long way before I close this down. Hope people working press do not find it offensive.

On the other hand, I always believe "the best is yet come". The end is just a better beginning.

This is no M&M or hallucinogen.
