1. The City Wanderer : The contractual city romance Publishing Date: 2016/12/12
  【明報專訊】The night high-flying managers Naomi and Jason decided to get together, they met at Yoshinoya, the best "Japanese" food chain they could afford if they were to nail a flat purchase later in the year. An iPhone 7 in hand each, they pulled out 2 Google calendars packed with tasks — I bet the president cannot get much busier than that.
2. The City Wanderer : A constant reminder from death Publishing Date: 2016/12/5
  【明報專訊】The occasional weddings and funerals are almost standard elements of life in the late twenties or early thirties. While solemnly bidding goodbye to their seniors, people of this generation also celebrate their friends' knot-tying and welcome newborns with similar optimism that saw them off from university not long ago, only with a tinge of newly-found urgency to live.
3. The City Wanderer : An experience of starvation in Gion Publishing Date: 2016/11/28
  【明報專訊】It was a rainy afternoon — 4:30 pm to be exact — in Gion (祇園), the historic sector of Japan's old capital, Kyoto. Lined with wooden machiya (merchant houses) and known for geishas, the district has never failed to charm visitors with its authentic legacy from the past. Yet, as a modern traveller with a rumbling stomach, I found my aesthetic sensors tumbling — all I wanted was food after a day of temple- and mountain-hopping, but it was nowhere in sight.
4. The City Wanderer : The City & the City Publishing Date: 2016/11/21
  【明報專訊】The City & the City is a curious crime novel by China Mimville, set in two imaginary antagonizing cities Bes?el and Ul Qoma, whose citizens carry themselves in distinctly different manners. For unknown reasons, the two cities have put in place rules to prohibit any exchange between their citizens, obliging them to "unsee" (pretend not to see) their counterparts in the other city when an encounter occurs. A citizen who fails to do so commit a "breach", an ultimate crime handled by a mysterious organisation called Breach, and are immediately removed from sight and subjected to unknown punishments. The story revolves around the death of Mahalia, a PhD student who has been outspoken about Orciny, a rumoured third city in between the aforementioned two.
5. The City Wanderer : Separate wash please Publishing Date: 2016/11/14
  【明報專訊】Last week, I discussed the difficulty of adult children living with their parents, resulting in some apologetic inquiries from senior readers who are suffering tense familial relationships — "What have I done to piss off my children?"
6. The City Wanderer : A reply to readers : Should adult children move out? Publishing Date: 2016/11/7
  【明報專訊】Last week's article has received an overwhelming response, both expressing an interest in White Dirt and sharing entangled family issues. Topping the list is the yearning of adult children for independence of their parents whose living habits and beliefs are often drastically different from theirs. However, the road to personal independence is proving windier than ideal.
7. The City Wanderer : White Dirt: negotiating familial love and individuality Publishing Date: 2016/10/31
  【明報專訊】It's a common assertion that Asian culture emphasises collectivity over individualism. Unsurprisingly, many Asian novels and films reflect this. There's a pressing need for families to function as the basic units of society, with the defined hierarchy of society mirrored within the family unit. Thus, to have a dysfunctional family is almost shameful, even in the modern world where problems can be discussed more openly.
8. The City Wanderer : Swordsman III and the unexpected swordfish Publishing Date: 2016/10/24
  【明報專訊】Before Netflix spoilt everyone with excessive movie choices, my family had the habit of re-watching a film on VCD or VHS again and again. Topping the chart is Swordsman II (《笑傲江湖II東方不敗》), a tale of love and revenge between transgender villain East the Invincible (Brigitte Lin, 林青霞), travelling swordsman Linghu Chong (Jet Li, 李連杰) and the usurped leader of the Sun Moon Holy Cult (Shi-kwan Yen, 任世官). Based loosely on a story known to average wuxia (武俠) fans, the film had the appropriate tempo, tension, and action that surpassed similar movies of that time. Its final scene where defeated Bridgette Lin fell off a cliff remains a popular reference in contemporary movie discussion.
9. The City Wanderer : The middle-age marriage haste Publishing Date: 2016/9/26
  【明報專訊】Many people who has been through middle-age told me it is more a sudden realisation than gradual approach to maturity. You wake up one day and notice that kids still roll around on the sandy beaches, college students still talk about dreams, youngsters still have their insatiable (無法滿足的) wanderlust (旅行癖), but you are no longer part of them. And adding to this realisation is a tiny voice urging you to settle with a family - something you call "unimaginable" not long ago. In the past, that's when you succumb to your mom's "friendly introductory dinners" with some decent off-springs of her old friends. Nowadays, you consult the all-mighty Internet and apps for an ideal partner.
10. The City Wanderer : Happiness - a mild account of dementia Publishing Date: 2016/9/19
  【明報專訊】Happiness (《幸運是我》) is a light-hearted portrayal of the morphing relationship between young man Yuk (Carlos Chan, 陳家樂) and his demented elderly landlady, Aunt Fanny (Kara Hui, 惠英紅). The characters' transition from agony into mutual support is heart-warming, if not too much for a movie on this theme.
