The power of gratitude

Thursday, July 24, 2014 - 01:28 p.m.

LATELY I’ve been giving much thought to the government’s move to push back the start of the school year from June to August. I am not aware of its legal and formal status (if the move is already legal and binding or on a voluntary basis).

Destination Zhangjiajie

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - 11:44 p.m.

ALL great journeys deserve a soundtrack, and if I were to choose one for a recent trip to Zhangjiajie, I’d pick the album Kveikur from the post-rock Icelandic band Sigur Ros.

The album has nothing to do with this breath-taking place in the south-central Chinese province of Hunan. It just so happened I was listening to the tracks from the inflight music selection that time, in fact, just minutes before Cathay Pacific’s flight CX920 landed on Hong Kong for a connecting flight to the city of Changsha, Hunan’s capital.
