Reporting Taiwan election

IMG_0801Last week, the young reporters went to Taiwan and reported on its presidential election. It has been an unforgettable experience and honour for us to follow on this big news and meet the famous politicians. I couldn’t believe I have a chance to stand before the now-president Tsai and witness her/Taiwan’s victory.

We learn the democracy, political and social situation of Taiwan. We learn to report in a new environment. We learn how to be a good journalist. It’s tough and super tiring, but we made it! Please check our work.

New Years Day in Hong Kong: how we celebrated in 1966 and 1916

It’s really not easy to read newspaper hundred years ago-unclear headlines and leads, packed and tiny words. Patience is what I have learnt as a journalist.

Happy New Year! Let’s say goodbye to 2015 and greet 2016 with a thankful and exciting heart!

Thanks God! This is my best Christmas present this year. The long and exhausting effort of tracking down the photos’ locations and shooting has not been wasted. But I really enjoy this project! I went back to the Christmas hotspots which I used to go in childhood. I saw how Hong Kong has changed-THEN, the Christmas lights were cute, NOW were fewer and commercial. Merry Christmas!
