the link is going to disappear

If you care to read, the blog entries about the UK trip is now finalized. I thought I would add a lot more, but things seem not very interesting by now, so this is only a slight update.

And, for those who insist to go through my CS homepage to here (yes I know someone is wasting an extra click every day): you better bookmark this page now, as the link on CS homepage to here would gradually fade out and eventually completely disappear. It is a randomized link with a certain probability of appearing, and this probability will be decreasing...

A professor and his three students A, B, C (in descending order of age) are having lunch to be paid by B, supposingly to "celebrate" B finding a job. Somehow the conversation includes something like:

C: 我比B 教過的
B: 我都比A 教過的
Prof: 而家D 學生越黎越渣
A,B,C: ...

where am I going?

So... what do all these mean? Will I be teaching in a second Iraq?

So, it's done. After a week's struggle - you probably don't understand. A move for someone who never left HK any longer than 2 weeks. A decision that certainly affects my career, possibly whether I can chase girls, and perhaps where I will live in the rest of my life. I don't know why I do it, I don't know whether it is good to do it. But anyway, it's done. The first one to leave HK for permanent academic jobs while remaining single in the theory group, as far as I know. An embarassing dishonour.

You know what this story tells you, right?

King's Cross St. Pancras

Exactly one month ago, at the same morning rush hour, I was in this station on my way to Leicester... and it is the location having the largest number of people killed in this attack. (Is that a warning that I should not go? ...)

Last year I was in Paris and two months after I left, the roof of a terminal of Charles de Gaulle airport collapsed... For people's lives, perhaps I should not go to anywhere else...

So we finally have our 新特首. And could all those people on TV stop keep on saying the word when talking about this 新特首 ? Yeah I know they interpret the law again to say this is a 新特首 , not 新任特首 ... but can't you just skip the ? Isn't 新特首 fine? Or 新嘅特首 is also fine, right?
