Pieces of Hong Kong – a new blog

Over the summer, I’ll be keeping (hopefully) a more regular blog about a city I love… (I’m thinking once-a-week-ish.)

The blog will be very different from this one. For one thing, it will be far less personal. There will be snippets of daily life. There will probably be one or two political rants (one’s brewing violently at the moment…). There will be photos (when I finally get around to clearing my memory card), of Hong Kong. And there will be stories of people I come across. Maybe even interviews! :D But hopefully there will be very little of me (except for my voice and vision and all that good stuff).

Secondly, Our City, as my new blog is titled, is firstly written in Chinese. (It is partially to keep my Chinese writing skills honed). I write each entry in Chinese, then translate it to English. Thus it is actually two blogs, the Chinese one, and its English counterpart. Not that it makes any real difference for readers, except that the English blog may be updated a little later.

Here it is in English: http://hkhearteng.wordpress.com/

And in Chinese: http://hkheart.wordpress.com/

Still a little work to be done with the header and layout and stuff. But I’m sure you’ll make do.

Finally, Beneath the Olive Trees will remain my primary blog, even if I do update the other one more often. This is, ultimately, the place where I share the more important parts of me, the place where I talk to friends, the place where one would actually get to know me (assuming I post… :p). Beneath the Olive Trees is my blogging home. Our City is a summer project.

With love,
