The Edge of Tomorrow meanwhile remains my fave blockbuster of 2014 – with Boyhood the best movie overall :p

Hong Kong

h6  h17h18 h27

A trip to Hong Kong for the HK Literary Festival 2014.

h20
Got a chance to visit  the Occupy Hong Kong site – which I’m told is a pale shadow of what it was at the height of the protests. But for someone from Singapore, where just about all civic protest obeys carefully circumscribed boundaries at Hong Lim Park, it was still an eye opener – a sight to behold even in these fading days.

h25

The school visits – to the Chinese International School, Hong Kong University Graduates Association College and Singapore International School, were interesting too – with apologies to all the students who had to sit through the talks; hope it was just a little bit informative and not too painful :p

h26

Here’s my dad and me with the Floating Restaurant in the background – which was the inspiration for the Underground Casino in the Shadow Hero 🙂
