除夕下午太陽和石欄上的點滴翠藤為這片海畔染上點點生機。一整個下午都被粉紅色木迷住,半封信都寫不完,但不打緊,就這樣坐着發夢已很好。編輯先生給我看了一幀舊照片,相中拍到寫着「蛋撻」兩字的招牌﹣這種事情令人開心得想叫出來。心情不好的日子,新找到那數本十九世紀香港舊日記就如止痛藥般,裹面記錄了當時的市集廟宇、油鹽家常等事,也有一八六零年代遊客們在維多利亞城上酒吧吃早餐的雜文,平常人家瑣憶粹感往往卻是最珍貴的。坐在細軟沙灘上看見太陽不一會便躲到水平線下,遠方的高山小島、慢慢駛過的小船都被夜色染成層層有深有淺的藍。我們趕着去參加派對,經過赤柱和大潭水壩回到北邊。跟聖誕夜同一個工作室,煮同樣的海鮮煲,但邀請了少一半的人,卻喝同樣二十瓶酒,這次大家都能都圍在長桌旁談天,感覺很kinfolk, 很溫暖。
“I passed a little street of cook-shops. Here they chop everything they sell into little bits, with onions and herbs, and put them into a cornet made of a dried leaf - the same as used for fans. The women were marketing, buying eggs, fruit etc. One bought half a duck, which was also cut up into little bits, head and all. A traiteur was making a stew of fat pork and tripe, and at all the shops were little heap of fowls’ entrails, and giblets to sell. They cut these things up upon blocks, with a sharp chopper, which they hammered with their fists. Everything is soldby steelyard weight, from fowls to onion.” - To China and back : being a diary kept out and home, Hong Kong, August 21, 1858 - September 28, 1858

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated! outlook login
