編者的話

「可以落莊了。」這是我期待已久的一刻。 至少,知道下莊絕對比我勝任這支莊,我感到欣 慰。他們人數眾多,而且每個人都熟悉整支莊的運 作,終於可以發揮到太古青年應有的潛質。我認為 我自己只是過渡者,盡力為下莊鋪路而已。 也許,我一開始就不應該在擔任副編一職時,同時 身兼財政、出設的工作。由始至終,我全盤心思都 放於排版設計,大概是要彌補自己不讀平面設計的 遺憾吧。不過,世界不會圍繞自己來轉,上莊的時 候,身邊的莊友大多都想專注於排版。但我自己無 法同時處理那麼多行政及出設工作,以致倒下來的 時候,就拖延了整支莊的進度。沒有與莊友好好安 排分工是我的責任。我感到自己的存在十分矛盾, 畢竟我入太古堂的一大原因就是想上這一支莊。 落莊,對我來說,是鬆一口氣的時候,因為落了 莊,我就可以無牽掛地離開舍堂。天真的我,以為 二年級上學期還可以叫自己投入舍堂生活,完成當 初所承諾的事務,遺憾我最終在舍堂方面徹底地失 職了,有許多應做的事情沒有去做。投入設計也許 是一個很自私的決定,但這的確是我選擇報入太古 堂之前已經做了的抉擇。


我心虛嗎?我不得不承認,我感到內疚,但我也知道 我不能讓自己無止境地灰心。至少,我曾經努力為太 古堂付出,為一兩支文化隊伍努力,跟細組享受過為 2017年新生註冊日設計一批頭像、紀念品的過程, 就算只是留下文件夾、咖啡杯的設計,我都頗滿足, 至少這些會是我從太古堂之中帶走的快樂回憶。 儘管我在太古堂裡面過得不太快樂,我依然希望《太 古青年》是一本令堂友喜歡這間舍堂的刊物。多年來 沒有改變的是,這本刊物由多名堂友撰寫,寫的是不 同堂友在舍堂中不同角落所發現的趣事,以及對舍堂 的反思,是一個讓堂友發表自己個人意見的地方。希 望這本刊物裏面,可以找到你們的聲音,或者可以找 到靈感,在太古堂裏找到自己的定位。我認為,太古 堂最需要的,是有心的人,不只是說為自己著緊的事 情所努力的人,而是指不會忘記花小小心力去伸出 緩手的人。有時候,你一小撮的努力,已經可以為 一件事情帶來轉機,哪怕只是Drama Interhall搬幾件 傢俬,都已經減省了其他人的工作,加快了換場的速 度。因此,不要覺得自己是一名可有可無的堂友,可 以的時候就付出一點點的努力,這間舍堂會有人感激 你的參與。 現在,雖然123期及124期《太古青年》姍姍來遲, 都總算出版了。謝謝各位編委、堂友耐心等候它們的 出版。 余樂思 副編/署理主編


#bulletjournal

monday

Bullet journaling, or bujo, is becoming quite popular nowadays. If you search up #bulletjournal on Instagram, you will find up to 1,467,096 posts. Bullet journaling literally means diary-writing in bullet point format, however, it is much more than that. Bullet journaling is a flexible organisation system that includes to-do lists, calendars, habit trackers, et cetera. It is a convenient way to record your day-to-day activities, make plans and keep track of habits.

I’m no expert in bullet journaling, but recently I’ve developed an interest in it upon seeing my friend’s bullet journal account on Instagram. Since then, I’ve followed many bullet journal accounts and learnt quite a bit about the trend. Many owners of bujo accounts own an extensive equipment lists, from colour pens and markers, to stamps and washi-tapes. They are very handy in the creative process, but not a necessity.

wednesday

Those who are interested in bullet journaling can start simply with a pen and notebook. I reckon that instead of owning an extensive list of materials, the key to bullet journaling is dedication. Most of the organisation systems require a day-to-day input, and if you are not committed enough, the graphs and tables you make would become incomplete. As you continue to journal, you would know what stationery you need and expand your collection.

Once you gather your basic equipments, the next thing to do is to figure out what organisation system suits your need. When you first start your journal, it may be difficult to come up with organisation systems on your own. You could follow step by step procedures on Youtube and blogs, or find templates on social media, such as Tumblr, Pinterest and Instagram. These platforms are a great source of inspiration, because users update frequently. Personally, I would prefer looking for templates, because I could customise my pages to my own liking.


太古浪子 Red 問:你心目中浪子嘅定義係咩? 答:不羈囉,放縱囉。 問:你覺得自己係咪浪子? 答:我覺得自己係浪子,但係我自我認為係嗰隻浪子,我永遠 都做唔到真係浪子嘅嗰隻浪子 問:咁真正嘅浪子係點? 答:真正嘅浪子唔會同人講佢係浪子,但我會,呀東囉,呀東 先係真正嘅浪子。 問:浪子同 playboy 同狗公分別係咩? 答:完全兩回事嚟㗎喎,playboy 同狗公係衝埋去,浪子係唔 會掂呢啲嘢。

5

問:扮浪子係咪會容易啲溝到女? 答:梗係唔係啦,你睇下我,扮浪子係因為型姐。


6

問:咁你對女色冇興趣? 答:你錯啦,本王係沈迷女色,我好希望三樓 可以酒池肉林。 問:你身邊啲 friend 係咪都係浪子? 答:呀東囉,Oscar 都係,佢係不羈嘅浪子。 問: 有冇一個女人令你留下最深刻印象? 答:我媽囉,同萍姐,呢兩個係我人生中最重 要嘅女人。 問:你呀媽係點㗎? 答:我呀媽好靚囉,如果唔係比我老豆溝咗我 應該會溝。 問:一個點嘅女人先會令你考慮 settle down? 答:好似萍姐咁,會喺 kelvin tsang 屙尿嘅時候 佢就會抹洗手盤咁嘅女人。 問:你仲有冇咩想講? 答:我唔係狗公,我唔係playboy。


Ben tong 問:你心目中浪子嘅定義係咩? 答:阿 Red 囉,氹到女仔,多女埋身同 champ。 問:你覺得自己係咪浪子? 答:唔係。 問:咁你多唔多女仔 friend? 答:同女仔關係唔多好,唔多女性朋友,joint school 一兩 個,小學一兩個。我間學校好薯㗎咋。 問:你覺得浪子同 playboy 同狗公分別係咩? 答:狗公係想做浪子做唔到,player 係會取悅女仔,浪子係 non intentional 咁去吸引女仔。 問:你想唔想做浪子? 答: 咁...心底裏實想㗎,不過唔係咁好,flirt 嚟 flirt 去。 問:即係你想做但驚俾人話? 答:咁浪子實型㗎! 問:你身邊啲 friend 係咪都係浪子? 答:Ares 囉!

7

問:Ares 多女咩? 答:咁唔係囉!


8

問:有冇一個女人令你留下最深刻嘅印 象? 答:有個鍾意咗六年嘅女仔,不過冇機 會,第六年 ig post 有男朋友。 問:點識㗎? 答:由細識到大。 問:有冇行動過? 答:試過送禮物,然後,然後就沒有然後 了。 問:Status? 答:嗯....A0。 問:咁你鐘意咩類型嘅女仔? 答:其實都係 feel 行先,冇 feel 好快散一 齊做乜。 問:有冇咩特點? 答:鐘意笑。 問:嗯,咁有冇其他? 答:有笑眼囉,因為之前鐘意嗰個女仔都 有,不過其實都係 feel 行先。


Henry 問:覺得點樣先算浪子?自己又係唔係浪子呢? 答:我覺得一個人要無欲無求,對所有嘢都冇留戀,自由自 在不收拘束先可以叫浪子。我自己都覺得自己係浪子嘅。我 喺大學到認識咗好多思想負面嘅人,同好多人發生過好多唔 同嘅關係,但係因為唔想負責任,可能就係咁做咗浪子。 問:咁你喺做浪子之前係點嘅呢?又係點樣成為浪子嘅呢? 答:我自己喺中學嘅時候經常改變自己迎合他人,希望自己 唔好受人注意。入U之後改變咗諗法,又覺得香港係個好大 壓力嘅地方,於是就唔想再受拘束,想做翻自己,於是我就 好似而家咁做咗浪子。

9

問:你嘅夢想係做咩? 答:我自己想做一個 song writer。我平時聽開 Guns N’ Roses 同埋 Arctic Monkeys 呢啲比較負面啲嘅歌,但係而家啲歌都 好正面,所以我想寫啲呢類歌比人聽。仲有就係我好中意芬 蘭,想去嗰度睇北極光,同埋想死喺嗰度。


10

問:有冇一個令你留下深刻印象嘅人? 答:有啊,佢係我初戀。嗰時佢坐喺我隔離,我哋兩個都係 比較奇怪嘅人,成日比人 bully,冇人同我哋講嘢,於是我 哋兩個就同對方傾計。我覺得佢好叻好有才華,於是就好 admire 佢。嗰時成日上佢屋企,佢彈佢鍾意又好 romantic 嘅歌比我聽,我就唱歌。嗰陣覺得佢係我嘅 savior 係我嘅救 星。但係一齊之後又因為其他人嘅目光同自己嘅原因分開 咗。可能係以為以前擁有過又再失去,唔想再接受失去嘅難 過,於是就唔再去擁有。 問:最後問吓點解你會揀 Swire hall 住嘅?有咩想同 Swirians 講呢? 答:我三年前揀 Swire hall 係因為有 band 房可以用,其實全 部都有不過我當時唔知(笑),後尾過埋 Ocamp 之後發生 咗啲事,冇住到落去。今年翻嚟係想搵翻啲 sense of belonging。至於有咩想講,em...非誠勿擾啦!

Heron: 呢兩個禮拜好正常啊,天光起身囉 樓友: 佢作息時間好Swirian,以前喺美國時區生活 A: 呢兩個禮拜真係好健康,因為自從有第一個lab開始就 好早瞓,持續咗兩個禮拜 編 : Tri take都唔得嘅話你會有咩打算? Heron: 冇啊真係冇乜點諗過,因為我係嗰種唔鍾意諗咁多嘅 人……做你地既下一屆囉 編 : 有咩要對retake緊嘅人講? Heron: 唔好走咁多堂,我除咗test 同lab 之外冇上過堂


2F Pieter

編 :請問你GPA係幾多呀? Pieter:我唔記得CGPA喎,淨係記得上個sem 樓友 :收聲啦!佢唔會唔記得 Pieter:無呀無睇過自己CG,唔夠膽睇,無睇過,應該無限接 近2。呃上個sem好似2.3幾。 編 :通常midterm前一晚你喺度做緊啲咩 Pieter:溫書囉,梗係溫書啦 編 :哇好勵志吓 Pieter:梗係啦,如果唔係可以點,通常midterm前會開始溫書 咖喎,但都係唔識無計,所以都係炒。

13

編 :你F過幾多科 ? Pieter:哇呢個要數wor,你計唔計tri-take嗰啲咖? 編 :咦你有tri-take過? Pieter:tri-take過同一科,我F過好似得2科咋嘛,1111F咗 樓友1 :1111都F呀 ? 樓友2 :佢F過2次呀 Pieter:1111F過,之後仲有1050。1111係我啲功課真係最遲個刻 先做,第一次跟住就抄唔切,跟住就fail曬,因為有啲 assignment全部0曬。係喇之後另一次呢就reg咗下個sem 讀既,跟住我第一份功課好似滿分嘅印象中,跟住第 2,3份都應該係滿分既但係我無check到原來佢無俾分我 編 :無俾分? Pieter:係呀因為第一次佢有send翻封email嚟比我係滿分既,跟 住第二三次我就無理喇,跟住就無check到,跟住唔知 佢係read唔到定咩,跟住就0曬,所以就gg咗


14

編 : 有咩趣事分享? Pieter: 哦我記得我第1次考1111計過我份卷要攞97分我成個 course就合格喇,跟住我就入去睇份卷當係幫下年prep 定先,跟住我純粹坐咗3個鐘係度就係睇卷囉,係呀跟 住抄下d題目呀自己翻去睇下囉,因為邊有可能拎97分 一份卷呀。係呀嗰陣時year 1啦遮係exam period個陣時 啦好悶啦,之後有樓友介紹咗隻game比我,佢本身玩咗 好耐既,跟住個陣考試期間我狂玩,每日玩8-9個鐘左 右,跟住一個禮拜之後呢我ranking高過佢囉。(指向樓 友) 樓友 : 嗰陣我唸住呢見佢溫書咁辛苦比嘢佢玩娛樂下,點知佢 日日都係度玩起身又玩瞓覺又玩 Pieter: 之後就炒咗 Pieter: 阿Kit GPA上個sem係幾多呀我想知? 編 : 1.XX Pieter: 好嘢好過阿Kit,我2.3幾喎上個sem,我高過黃浚禧喎, 剩係計best3我有3.幾上個sem,係出咗2科engine炒低咗 即刻。我B+、B+、B喎上個sem 編 : 你讀曬啲free electives一定高分咖 Pieter: 讀咗啲咩Buddhism呀,CC呀個啲囉。但我全部cc都係 揀music,呃上次個midterm5條有1條唔識囉。我有個 midterm一定有8成,跟住最後79%囉。 編 : Music係考咩呀theory呀? Pieter: 呃theory有啲囉,因為我今個sem有reg科free electives嘅 music,因為我有唸緊minor music,因為我真係唔鐘意 engine。


編 : 有無分享邊啲 free electives係拉高啲 Pieter: 唔知點解我揀高grade個啲呢佢地揀就一定低grade,遮 係譬如我之後有個CC B+咗啦,跟住我係極hea啦,全 個sem唔知做咗啲咩,好似吹咗篇文,寫咗1000字左右 就b+咗,跟住我比佢地個陣就開始好多workload呀,結 果全部B曬。我介紹啲科唔係好啱正常人讀㗎。

15

編 : 有無咩建議比retake緊嘅人? Pieter: 早啲r source囉,啲嘢早啲做囉,呃識翻一兩個印度佬 囉,如果讀engine既話,因為佢地真係carry到你嘅, 但你一定要搵個有用既印度佬先得囉,因為有啲係會 freeride既。打hockey就係要同印度佬吹水學佢地嘅語言


16

1FKit

編 : 請問你GPA幾多? Kit: 1.6xxx……比啲幻想空間大家。 編 : 我諗你都幾自豪下喎。 Kit: 好難咖。 編 : 通常midterm或者final前一晚你做緊咩?瞓覺定係最後拼 搏?定係打機? Kit: 睇下咩時段啦,year 1嘅時候都唔知有midterm,因為你唔 去上堂係唔知幾時midterm㗎嘛。係過咗之後先知。聽到 人哋講,先知原來已經派埋。而家就都會溫書嘅,升大3囉 喎。以前咪…唔知喎,都係fing、瞓覺、打機嗰啲囉。 編 : 有冇上tutor?Lecture就唔問喇。 Kit: 都係以前唔上,而家上得就上。有時你瞓喺張床到就唔會 想走㗎喇,但而家都會盡量走。同埋有啲科嘅tutor就…則 係我而家反而係睇個tutor佔幾多個percentage,佔得少就唔 上㗎啦,但如果佔得多就上,去一去有分呀嘛。係咪上進 咗先 編 : 咁都幾上進喎 Kit: 上進好男人呀!


編 :介唔介意講你F過幾多科? Kit:(秒答)6科。 編 :睇嚟你都答過唔少次囉喎。 Kit:Year 1 sem 1 F咗3科。我淨係pass咗1851同埋1050,2個 B+,結果拉咗1.3幾出嚟。你可以計下F咗3科都可以有 個1.3幾出嚟,其實都算唔錯。 樓友:嘩咁都得? 編 :有無啲嘢對retake或者tritake嘅人講? Kit:講真我無試過tritake。

17

樓友 :話你哋知你哋下個可以搵邊個-Heron 編 :預備喇預備喇。 Kit:Pieter都係喎。 編 :都搵咗啦,就係得你哋3個。 Kit:我哋係Swire 3大台柱,我係龍頭。


18

Kit:我淨係試過retake。但係認真,我通常F嗰啲,都係真係 我完全無理過。Year 1 sem 1嗰3個F係因為我完全無掂 過,即係我當無reg個呢3科。跟住之前有科F又係完全 冇做過。 Kit:仲有試過係sem 1嘅時候考個3個鐘嘅final,我做咗一個 鐘就出考場用電話睇《一拳超人》,追到live我班friend 就出嚟,跟住一齊去食kfc。嗰科係真係完全唔識。 編 :咁最後你嗰科拎咩grade? Kit:咁梗係F啦,咁都唔F咩唔通?! 編 :咁可能係有MC㗎嘛 Kit:無MC㗎,得寫 Kit:搵相嘅時候求其搵得㗎啦,搵幾個似讀書啲嘅就得架 啦。讀engine嘅朋友,快啲走啦,唔好讀啦,離開呢個 學科啦,做下文科仔幾開心。

西班牙

愜意的生活VS窒息的節奏

由2016年嘅9月到2017年嘅2月,10樓 Stacey 去 咗潘普洛納(西班牙)exchange,其間喺 University of Navarra 讀書。

01

一句詞形容Pamplona?

02

去Exchange的心路歷程?

其實情緒都幾大波動 。因為要重 新開始socialize,覺得有啲辛苦。 不過慢慢識咗好多friend子,開始 適應就覺得幾開心,仲開心過喺香 港添。最開心嘅係自己照顧自己嘅 能力提高咗。其實,都幾唔捨得個 種愜意同冇咁多responsibility嘅日 子。 愜意。因為嗰度生活節奏都幾慢, 私人舖頭開嘅時間都好靈活。通常 lunch嘅時間會係2-4點,dinner係 9-10。值得一提嘅喺Pamplona真 係一個working friendly嘅城市。 我嗰度附近有個公園,一圈大概有 2km,加上嗰邊天氣好舒適,跑步 都幾舒服。

04

好玩的節日?

31

七月份有一個叫Running of the bulls,有人會跑喺牛前面, 引牛 去鬥獸場。佢係類似一個古城嘅 地方,遊客可以喺窗口望落去。 其實都有啲危險,之前都會有意 外發生,甚至有啲城市都禁止呢 種活動。不過其實都幾有趣。

03

學習上的困難?

05

美食?

其實同香港差唔多,甚至內容簡單 過香港。 lecture上都係得一兩個 係active嘅。不過特別嘅係佢地嘅 計分方法,滿分係十分,只會顯示 分數,冇A,B,C,D。

西班牙小食Tapas。西班牙海鮮 飯(paella),特別推薦墨魚汁味道 。同埋黑毛豬( jamon )真係好 jeng。不過,個邊嘅食物都有小 小偏鹹。喺Logrono(紅酒城市) 嘅超市,有啲紅酒1歐就可以買到 啦。

Spain

Laid-back vs fast paced

From September 2016 to February 2017, 10F Stacey went on exchange at Pamplona, Spain, where she studied at the University of Navarra.

01

Describe Pamplona with one word.

Leisurely. The lifestyle at Pamplona is slow-paced. Unlike the metropolis Hong Kong where most stores are franchises, there are more sole-traders and their working hours are more flexible. To emphasise their laid-back lifestyle, lunch is usually from 2 to 4pm, dinner from 9 to 10pm. Also, the city’s infrastructure is well developed. There is a park near where I lived. When the weather’s good, which is often, a jog around the park is extremely enjoyable.

02

how did you feel during the trip

Initially, it was difficult because I didn’t know anyone, but then as I befriended more and more people, I began to adapt to the lifestyle there and I grew to like the place.

03

Are there any interesting festivals in Spain?

In July, there is an event called “Running of the Bulls” where people run in front of bulls and lead them into the fighting arenas. This festival is quite dangerous; it is banned in some cities, but others preserve it because it is a tradition and a tourist attraction.

04

Woud you recommend fellow hallmates to go? I wouldn’t recommend hall-mates to go to Pamplona for exchange, because the city is too small and laid-back. It may be difficult for Hong Kong people to adapt to the slow and tranquil lifestyle of Pamplona.

埃及

埃及隨筆

由2017年嘅6月到2017年嘅7月,3樓Red去咗埃及 exchange,其間周遊不同城市,探索埃及。

01

一個詞去形容今次去埃及嘅 體驗

輕狂 。人不輕狂少年。 其實成件事就好隨機嘅,5號報名 7號interview22號就飛埃及啦。雖 然個陣其實都考慮咗好多,譬如時 不時就會係埃及發生嘅恐襲。但機 會難得,最尾都決定去。

02

點解會揀埃及

其實係因為我太遲報, 已經冇咩 其他選擇。同埋埃及都幾抵玩,我 一個半月先用咗一萬四。而且我報 嘅explore項目係一邊周圍玩一邊 影相,仲可以當一份intern。

03

食物

其實同kebab差唔多,都唔會話埃 及個邊個啲特別惹味。不過,嗰邊 果汁好抵飲,港紙4蚊就可以有一 邊鮮榨果汁。不過我垃圾口,對食 嘅唔係特別在意,夠飽就得。

04

印象最深刻嘅地方

33

我哋部旅行車係一條危險嘅公路上 死火,等嘅時候要警察保護我哋, 最後幾個鐘先好返。張合照就係喺 個個時候影。


34

05

有冇識咗好多friend子 可唔 可以介紹下佢地 同埋點識

06

覺得當地人點 有冇咩特別 嘅文化

AIESEC會安排住宿嘅地方俾志願 者。我住個間係一間自稱酒店嘅 酒店,其實都住唔到人,只可以 叫做有瓦遮頭。唯一好嘅就係容 易識到朋友,有印度,巴西,美 國人。

大部分當地人都好熱情,尤其是 對亞洲面孔十分好奇(對亞洲女 性發出強烈的求偶信號)。但係 有一啲同你傾一陣就會拉你去佢 間鋪頭。所以最後即使好想同佢 哋傾多幾句,都唔係好敢。 我去個陣撞正齋戒。 齋戒個陣 所有穆斯林都要從早上禁食到太 陽落山,好多店都唔開,所以出 去都冇嘢做。 旅舍又好熱,所以 好多時候都唔知做咩好,都幾無 聊。

07

有冇特別難忘嘅回憶

我嗰陣隻腳受咗傷,有人叫我去 一間政府醫院。但係去到佢哋 點都唔比我入去,又唔同我講英 文。一個鐘之後先明白呢間原來 係婦科醫院。然後佢哋又指我去 另一間醫院,大部分醫生都係唔 識講英文,但係好彩最後都搵到 一個識英文嘅醫生,都知我隻腳 傷咗,幫我照咗X光。 仲有一次去咗一個係綠洲附近嘅 沙漠,有好多蚊,但去沙漠係一 種幾特別嘅體驗,星空俾我想象 中更令人震撼。


EGYPT

MEMO ON EGYPT

From June to July 2017, 3/F Red went on an exchange to Egypt, where he explored several of Egypt’s cities.

01

USE ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE YOUR TRIP TO EGYPT.

Wild. If you don’t do something wild during your youth, then you are wasting it. The whole trip was impromptu; I applied on the 5th, did my interview on the 7th, and flew to Egypt on the 22nd. I had my worries, such as the frequent terrorist attack, but the opportunity to visit Egypt outweighed my worries, hence I decided to go.

02

WHY EGYPT?

35

I chose Egypt only because I was too late to send out my application, by then, there wasn’t many places to choose from. Comparing Egypt to other places, the cost was economical, for I spent only $14,000 in one and a half months. Also, the category I signed up for counted as an internship. It required me to take photos as I travelled, which I was more than happy to oblige.

03

What CUISINE would you recommend?

I can’t come up with any cuisine in particular, probably because I don’t fuss over what I eat as long as I am full. That aside, the juice there were cheap; you could purchase a cup for $4.

04

What WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE?

My most memorable memory was when our car broke down on the highway. The highway was so risky that that the police had to wait with us so to offer us protection. We ended up waiting for a few hours before we could resume our trip.

05

DESCRIBE AN UNFORGOTTABLE EXPERIENCE. Back then I injured my foot, and someone told me to go to the public hospital. When I got there, they wouldn’t let me enter and they wouldn’t speak English to me. After an hour, I finally understood that that was a gynaecological hospital. They redirected me to another hospital where most of the doctors didn’t speak English. Fortunately, in the end, I found a doctor who spoke English. He knew my foot was injured and sent me for x-ray.

06

Friends

AIESEC would offer accommodation to anyone who applied for it. As for me, I lived in a hotel that, in my opinion, didn’t quite qualify as a hotel due to the lack of resources. The only bright side to living there was that it was easy to meet people and make friends. There were people coming from India, Brazil, America, etc..

07

What is something you find special about their culture?

The locals there were enthusiastic about meeting new people, especially Asians. Some of them even led me to their stores after a few exchanges. I thought it would be unsafe to blindly follow them, so I kept down the talk when I was alone. Coincidentally, it was the month of Ramadan during my stay. All the Muslims had to fast during the daylight hours (from dawn to dusk). A lot of shops were closed, so there was nothing to do outside. Most of the time, I was confined to my hostel with nothing to do.

赫爾辛基隨筆

赫爾辛基市區

去Exchange的心路歷程?

大學會有一個迎新週,期間會 舉行大大小小的活動,例如 campfire。Campus附近係一個 好大嘅湖。企起湖邊,可以清晰見 到太陽嘅倒影。

雖然赫爾辛基市中心係好多商場, 但其實佢都唔算近商業圈。不過, 佢嘅居住區真係好靚噶。個邊有好 多典型嘅歐式建築,所以成個居住 區都令人眼前一亮。

聖誕節

03

學習上的困難?

05

美食?

我覺得其實佢哋都玩得幾癲噶。我 果個Student Association有搞個 活動喺個市中心到,佢有個錄音講 個故事。個主題係類似Harry Potter,而你要一邊聽住個故事一邊跟 住佢嘅指示喺市中心周邊走做唔同 嘢。好似一齊瞓喺個大堂到中咗魔 咒,或者到個公園到對住個銅像施 魔法,當佢係波士、敵人咁。

37

講 到 芬 蘭 , 大 家 一 定 會 提 起 聖 誕 其實就好多魚類食品,新鮮魚到處 節。全白的聖誕真係好有氣氛,最 都係。有一間船造型嘅餐廳有好多 特別嘅係佢喺市中心嘅集市。 好好食嘅魚。

MEMO ON HELSINKI

From September 2016 to January 2017, 4/F Tommy went on exchange in Helsinki, Finland, where he studied at Aalto University. IMPRESSION The Student Association once held a Harry Potter-themed city tracing game at the city centre. First, you’d have to listen to a recording that outlines the “plot” and tasks you have to complete. Then, you’d have to complete a couple of tasks such as act like you’ve been put under a spell, or challenge a statue to a duel. There are many malls in the city centre, but

LEISURE

Residence

I stayed at a youth hostel, in an 8-person unit with 4 double rooms. Aalto University has a pretty big campus, and it’s right next to a lake, where you can see the sun’s reflection.

03

TRIPS

The student association often organizes trips to other countries - such as Sweden, Norway, Spain, Austria and Russia - that I joined when I was free. In my opinion, the night sky in Norway is the best (among the Nordic countries) - unlike Hong Kong, where you can scarcely see the stars.

DINING IN FINLAND

it is not actually close to the commercial centre. The living environment is pleasant and appealing - the European style buildings make it so.

There aren’t many restaurants that are strictly “Finnish” mostly just expensive western cuisine - but the seafood in Finnish dishes are quite good. There is fresh seafood everywhere, and I recall going to a good seafood restaurant that’s shaped like a boat.
