MTR

Last Thursday the critique group at JCCAC did a life drawing session with an enthusiastic volunteer, William, as the model. Jovial had to draw with her left hand for the whole session due to her right hand still being in a splint, she rose to the challenge, she really seems to live up to her name.

The new exhibition at Edge gallery includes Picasso ceramics, how exciting for me to watch them being unpacked and placed on the table in front of me!

Hong Kong park has some truly remarkable flower displays in the pond purporting to refer to the theme of romance but in reality actually rotting, they took away the really dead flowers but weirdly put the empty oasis back in situ.

Weather has taken a down turn – cold and wet – and a pleasant walk to look at the harbour, not dissimilar to being in Scotland.

Finally the MTR drama…I was on the train next to the one that stopped in the tunnel. We all sat for around 10 minutes before being told that due to a power failure the line was now closed. This quickly developed into an announcement stating that this was an emergency due to a serious incident and we should leave the station immediately. Luckily, I could walk home from there [after buying an umbrella as it was pouring] but apparently the disruption went on for five whole hours…can you imagine…it was almost like being in London!
