我’有幸’体验到多伦多近十年来最严重的暴风雪。

昨天一整天,雪不停地下,不停地下….

我和Ed穿得厚厚地跑出去‘赏雪。

因积雪有20至30公分高,步步艰辛,才绕公寓一圈,我已气喘如牛。

今早,雪小了,轻轻地飘。

太阳跑了出来, 人们也出来了。我也出去拍拍照片。

阳光反射在洁白的雪上,好美好美。

人们暂抛开要清理那么多的雪的烦恼,先快乐地享受….

I was ‘fortunate’ enough to have the chance to experience the worst snowstorm in nearly ten years in Toronto.

The snow was pouring non-stop yesterday.

Ed and I went out during the storm, well, for an experience. It was rare chance.

The streets were covered by 20 to 30 cm of snow and was extremely difficult to walk.

We only walked around our apartment but I was already quite exhausted.

This morning, though still snowing, only lightly.

Sun is out, people are out too. Me too, taking my camera for some photos.

Temporarily ignoring the need to clean up the mess, people want to first enjoy the sunshine-filled beautiful snowwhite city ….

这次去蒙特利尔一张照片都没拍到。反正为了见朋友,专心聊天就是了。加上,我也不懂怎么在这种又暗又湿的景象拍出好东西。我的朋友是摄影高手, 我也不好意思在高手面前献丑。

怎知,回到多伦多,才后悔没拍到秋末寒冷的蒙特利尔。所以,唯有向Daniel要了张照片留念。他好厉害!拍得真的好漂亮。在此与大家分享。谢谢了,Daniel !

拍这张照片时, 天空中已飘着雪片…..街上一片冷清….

It was rare to catch up with a friend, let alone someone from Australia. We met up in Montreal. It was very wet and dark while we were there. I knew I was not capable of take any good photos in such conditions. In addition, my friend, Daniel is a keen photographer and I knew I feel embarrassed to take photos in front of an “expert” 😉

When I returned to Toronto, I regretted that decision. No matter how poor the quality would be, I should have  a photo of Montreal in late autumn/early winter. I asked Daniel to send me one of his photos. The photo is so quite well taken and rather beautiful (see above)! Thank you Dan!

P.S. It was already snowing when the picture was taken.

Do you believe sunset can be so stunning in front of your apartment ?

The photo was taken by my boyfriend in Toronto last evening.

Though I missed the sunset, it definitely brightens up my spirit to study for the two upcoming big, fat exams on next Monday 🙂

I supposed to spend all day in the library to study but I chose the wrong library – the RMIT library in the city. The reason I wanted to study in the city because I had a few things needed to be organised in the city.

However, the weather was so gorgeous that as soon as I walked out from the library I had already decided to stay out for the sun, in the lovely Melbourne City 🙂

St Paul’s Cathedral in the Melbourne City. I found out today that it was recently renovated while I was away, no wonder it looks so stunning this time around !

View at South Bank and Yarra River (the river which flows through the city). One of my favourite spots during summer.

Flinders Street Station is among Melbourne’s most recognisable landmarks. It is one of the best-known railway stations in Australia. It has more than 90 years history.

When I first arrived in Melbourne, it was the only few buildings I knew and I always met friends at the steps before we went anywhere.

黄大仙庙是香港著名的寺庙。听说它有求必应。我在十年前旅港时,曾慕名而来, 见识过它的香火鼎盛。这次旧地重游。朋友笑问我是为求签吗,我说没啦。

这次人不多。没上次把我薰得头晕的浓浓烟火。不知是今年香港经济好转了,人安稳了, 就少来这了。还是因为时间不对,人潮未到。

Wang Tai Sin Temple is a famous temple in Hong Kong, it is famous for its god to grant whatever is requested. Ten years ago, during my first visit to Hong Kong, I came here – saw hundreds of people praying sincerely and could feel their earnest plea to the god.

It is also famous for its fortune telling. The worshippers light worship sticks, kneel before the main altar, make a wish, and shake a bamboo cylinder containing fortune sticks until one falls out. The stick is exchanged for a piece of paper bearing the same number, and the soothsayer then interprets the fortune on the paper for the worshipper. Friends teased me if I wanted to ask for my fortune, I smiled and said no.

The temple was quieter this time. Probably because Hong Kong economic has finally improved over the last year, people have more stable life and find fewer reasons to visit here. Or simply because I came at the wrong time and the crowd had not arrived yet.

难得清静,我在那逗留了至少三十多分钟,可相中的老婆婆也在那拜了那么久。我站在一个角落,手提相机,一边拍照,一边在想 :不知老婆婆在为什么烦恼,为了什么求签。人老了,该没什么可求的。我想,是担心子女儿孙吧。

看她那虔诚, 看她那忧忧的神情,我不禁也起了个祈愿。默默地为老婆婆祈求,希望她老人家健康安稳,子女儿孙渡过难关,可好好孝顺她,让她享一享清福。

Whatever the reason, I enjoyed the quietness and had stayed there for more than half an hour. The old lady in the photo was there praying, shaking the cylinder containing fortune sticks over and over again for the same amount of time. I stood quietly in a corner, while taking many photos of hers, I was wondering what bothering her and what were her wishes. For her age, I guess probably nothing could bother her anymore except worrying of her children or grandchildren.

I was touched by her sincerity and concerned by her distressing look, I found myself praying – praying for her health and happiness, praying for her children or grandchildren to be able to overcome all obstacles in life, hence able to look after her well and to provide her with a better life….
