Religions

You may know China government is controlling and persecuting the religions in mainland China from newspaper.  Or you may query that if it happens in Hong Kong too.  I can reply you that religious freedom is one of the fundamental rights enjoyed by Hong Kong residents.  Hong Kong is still alright under the protection of the Basic Law and other relevant legislation.  

Therefore, I can share how to say the religious words in Cantonese in this post 🙂 .  Due to the colonial and Chinese society background, you can find different religions in Hong Kong.  They are mainly Christianity, Buddhism and Taoism, but we still have some people believing other religions.

Livestock

In this post, we will talk about the names of different kinds of livestock we can find in the wet market.  Surely not including dog meat, it is a forbidden food in Hong Kong. 🙂

In Chinese culture, we eat all kind of meat, for example pork, beef and lamb.  The most popular one is pork, for we can cook it in various ways.  We use different part of pork to cook different dishes according to the pork’s texture.   For the bone, we cook soup with vegetable or Chinese medicine.

The information is abstracted  from the food database built by the Association For Hong Kong Catering Services Management Ltd.  It categorized the food into different sorts – sea fish, meat (livestock), vegetable and etc.

There are no related photos in this post, but you can find the photos by clicking the Chinese characters which are linked to the database. Continue reading “Livestock”

Sea fish

Why not no “How to survive” series for a long time?

I have been thinking of continuing the series “How to survive in Hong Kong Wet Market” for a long time, but there were a lot of difficulties.  It is hard to find photos in various kinds of seafood, meat and other foods.  Copyright of photos is another issue to prevent it happen.  Making video without good photos cannot be achieved!

Recently, I found a website of food database built by the Association For Hong Kong Catering Services Management Ltd.  It categorized the food into different sorts – sea fish, meat, vegetable and etc.  Then I started thinking of changing my target from making videos to writing posts. Continue reading “Sea fish”

Kung Fu

Last year, when I started the facebook page, one of my subscribers told me that he loved Chinese Kung Fu.  I promised him I would make a video about Kung Fus Cantonese, but up to now, I have no idea how I can make it interesting.  Due to license issue, I cant use copyright videos in my channel and if just teaching Cantonese, I dont need to make a video.

Therefore, I will introduce some words of the Kung Fu manual “圖解詠春拳” (tou4 gaai2 wing6 ceon1 kyun4) in this post.  The ebook I found in a facebook page.  This book was originally written by a student of Bruce Lee and then Bruce Lee revised it.  Hope that you are interested in this book.

There is a download link of the ebook at the end of the facebook post.
