I was just killing some time at the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) before I left. There are always some interesting shots at my favorite airport in the world. This airport reminds me of Heathrow Airport in London – it’s a shopping mall where they happen to park planes outside. I love its big panoramas; its airfield views; its diverse food and drinks offer; its mix of generic and specialist retail; and its sheer sense of drama – a real feeling of a vast international crossroads.
I actually like hanging out in airports for a few reasons. First, I love to people-watch. When you travel internationally you see a real cross-cut of humanity in airports. The other reason I like airports is they are emotional places. Most travelers are excited about the prospects of new adventures and destinations. Others are travel-weary and emotionally drained. It’s fun to watch kids at airports. Their faces are full of awe and wonder.

My Photo At Tokyo Yoyogi Park《东京浪漫之秋》Published in LianheWanbao 联合晚报 Newspapers Dated 9 September 2018
The Hong Kong Island line was extended to the East at the end of 2014, with Sai Ying Pun station being the final one to be opened in March 2015. I have travelled there a few times and it is a very interesting MTR station.Not only do you have to take an escalator to reach the middle level, but you actually have to take a lift up to the street level. That’s how far down the station is.
There is a wonderful artwork depicting the neighbourhood – it is a painted bas relief created by Ms Louise Soloway Chan. Chan, originally from Britain who has lived in Hong Kong for over 20 years. Her artwork, 3D bass relief panels in Sai Ying Pun Station, bring together the past and present of a neighborhood where a congested, traditional wet market shares a wall with trendy Western-style cafeteria, both overflowing with the intense minutiae of daily life. The artwork shows different sights from Sai Ying Pun, for instance the escalator that has been built up to the High Street...the people shopping at the wet markets and little shops of the area...the day and day activities happening on the street of Sai Ying Pun....
西营盘铁路车站，是港岛线西延段最后一个通车的车站，以紫色做车站的主调颜色。西营盘站最大的卖点是富有当区特色的艺术品，是整个港铁网络中 “艺术气息最浓厚” 的车站。
