I went to Newport and spent afternoon to ride my bike around and test out my E65:

It turns out slightly better than my 6133 while I picked up some new features today. Will try again in Long Beach tomorrow.

滕王高閣臨江渚,佩玉鳴鸞罷歌舞。畫棟朝飛南浦雲,朱簾暮卷西山雨。閒雲潭影日悠悠,物換星移幾度秋。閣中帝子今何在,檻外長江空自流。

今天東亞地區很多報章的頭條都是有關日本著名影星酒井法子懷疑吸毒而被日本檢察部門發出通緝及後其自首一事。
在下相信很多在X和Y世代之間出生的人都對這位紅遍東亞地區的女星於一週內的報導感到震驚。不瞞大家,小的
在中學時代亦買過有關她的雜誌。我想,今次事件對香港很多人來說,這次事件陣撼度可以和去年「艷照門」事件相題
並論,而本質上這次事件的嚴重性可說是更大,畢竟這次是違反當地法律的行經。
猶記得去年香港很多報章內評論文章都不齒「阿嬌」在其艷照流出後的反應。有些人提出了些意見,說影星的私人生活
和其幕前形象應區分開來。小的知道不多,不過總覺得人非草木,若言其賣點是以「純真」的基礎,歌影迷接受了,
某情度亦是給了信任給其人。否則不論東西方的廣告內都喜歡以名人做代言。賣的就是這種信任。一旦出了如上文中的事情,
不管如何,不能不說,這是一種誠信破產的行經。
話說回來,又是老人家說的,戲子無情。人前人後如若兩人不就是他們職業的本性嗎?<

I got a mail from good friend of mine from Bay area. Basically he’s surprised by me for not interested in going a political show/meeting coming up in So. Cal. I guess this is a good place to have my response. While I have been working full time close to two years and haven’t make my Asia visit for three years now. I have been kept track on stuff in East Asia by daily basis. On the other hand, I tried my best to get as many involvement about local events, esp. transit events as possible. Although weekday monthly meetings from transit agencies is no longer possible, I came across substantial professionals in the industries locally and nationally over years. What i believe is this: I valued both stuff from L.C. and issue between John Chiang and Arnold equally. Let’s switch gear here, I’d like to know How you view Prop 1A? Would Measure R for LA County is a good thing for better transit system for future So. Cal.? Does California budget crisis affect our freeway, rail and transit system in long term? Which one is better, HOT or HOV? I have never ask the question but I would more than happy to hear from you next time when we meet.

在下今天晚上帶來的音樂為莫札特費加洛的婚禮序曲.這是小弟十三年前剛接觸古典音樂中的其中一首名作。

茅檐低小。溪上青青草。醉里蠻音相媚好。白發誰家翁媼。 大兒鋤豆溪東。中兒正織雞籠。最喜小兒亡賴,溪頭臥剝蓮蓬。 清平樂-辛棄疾
