祝大家有個愉快的週末!   Have a great weekend!

以前在英國時,房子旁有一個陽台屬於公眾地分。其他住戶很少去,所以它好像變成我們的私家戶外陽台。 We used to live in a block of flats in London which had a terrace next to our flat.  It's part of the communual area but nobody uses it so it became like our own private area. 我們經常在天氣好時,搬出桌子及野餐椅子,調一杯雞美酒 (家裡沒酒杯,米奇老鼠應該不會介意吧!),慢慢享受一個悠閒的下午。 Every now and then on a nice summer day we would bring out a table...

My protest at work over a movie 為看電影在公司的抗爭

I like watching movies, but the cheapskate in me isn't always willing to spend money on the tickets.  When I was still in England, I found a free movie preview scheme which is right up my street. 我蠻喜歡看電影,但又不太捨得花錢購票。在英國,長期有個免費看電影的活動,就最適合我這些無聊的小氣鬼。 I don't know who organises this, but every now and then somebody will post a code on a...

Slapped three times 被摑了三巴掌

Recently the BBC in the UK released salary details of all their staff earning over £150k(NTD6m) per year, and this reminded me of a personal experience from some years ago. 最近英國廣播公司公佈年薪超過£150k(NTD6m) 員工的名單, 令我想起在英國工作時的親身經歷。 First, let's take at look at the BBC report.

How does cycling in a world class velodrome sound? If you are an avid cyclist, cycling on the London... Continue Reading →
