I’m on training all week which means lots of late night revision 🍪🍫🍩 I am such a serial snacker I literally can’t sit still for five minutes unless I have something to eat, send help pls? Or send more food? I think I’m going to explode...

Btw這號稱是the best clam chowder in SF，於是花了十分鐘步行到這間餐廳吃午餐🤤
結論是酸酸的麵包好奇怪，不過在這種天氣喝湯還是很出色的選擇❤️ Fog Harbor Fish House @ Pier 39
Windows '18 | 2 // Today's window gives us a view of the iconic multicoloured facade of Tin Yiu (II) Estate into - you guessed it - a near-identical block a few steps back. Tin Yiu Estate is one of two founding public housing estates of Tin Shui Wai New Town, perhaps one of the most misunderstood places in Hong Kong. The old adage has never been more resonant than a place like Tin Shui Wai - first impressions last. Tin Shui Wai seems perpetually typecast as "the city of sorrow". For a sizeable part of the population of Hong Kong, Tin Shui Wai is held up as an example of town planning gone wrong; a place with many social ills and problems, and therefore a place to avoid (not that they'd have any reason to step out of their comfort zone back in the mid-levels anyway...). To invoke another adage, there is no smoke without fire. Tin Shui Wai is, indeed, a failure in town planning in some respects. Built as a New Town by filling in fish ponds and fields (many of which remain around the town, creating some wonderful views), Tin Shui Wai didn't quite live up to its beautiful name, which transliterates to "Walled Village between Sky and Water". As SimCity players would know, building a massive bedroom community in the middle of nowhere, with no real plans for jobs and business growth, is disastrous. Tin Shui Wai was generally unattractive to private developers given its remoteness, so a lot of the land was turned over the public housing. By definition, public housing was only available to those who needed it, so Tin Shui Wai had a high concentration of those on lower incomes, and the social issues that come with the struggle to survive on a shoestring. Over time, some truly saddening stories began to emerge from Tin Shui Wai - stories of suicide, child abuse and desperate poverty. Its reputation was cemented in two movies that were made to draw attention to its plight - one a celebration of bittersweet happiness, the one ends with the death of an entire family torn apart.
The movies resonated... (Continued in comments.)
