A very charming vehicle once used by the Royal Fire Services of Hong Kong before 1997, it started service in 1958 and retired in 1985. After retirement, the vehicle was once used as a hearse for those who passed away while fighting fires. The vehicle was manufactured by Dennis Specialist Vehicles in Britain and equipped with Rolls-Royce V8 engine. Apart from sketching the vehicle, I also included two emblems of the Hong Kong Fire Services Department, one with the Crown of Queen Elizabeth II at the top while the other with the Bauhinia flower.
將軍澳消防學校內的博物館擺放了一架1958年出廠的消防雲梯車。出廠後消防車一直服役至1985年。消防車由英國丹尼士Dennis Specialist Vehicles所生產，配備勞斯萊斯V8引擎。退役後此消防雲梯車曾一度成為英勇救火不幸殉職消防員的靈車。除了畫消防車外，我亦畫了兩個不同時期的消防局鰴號，一個是香港主權移交前擁有英女王伊利沙伯二世的皇冠以及英獅手持東方之珠的鰴號，另一個是現時以洋紫荊花取代皇冠的鰴號。

A lady walked out from this house when I was half done and she said to me, "Don't sketch my house!" "Why? It's a beautiful house!" I said and tried to please her."No! It's my house. You cannot sketch it!" she said. What a pity that she didnt allow me to continue! I retreated to the other side of the road and behind the trees to quickly colour my sketch.

It was a fine sunny day at Sam Ka Village at the eastern entrance to Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour. The entwining roots of this banyan tree growing on the rocky cliff were a joy to sketch! This Tin Hau Temple (Tin Hau is the goddess of the sea and is widely worshipped in Hong Kong) is also a special one as part of the temple actually stands in the water. The temple, the rocks, the Banyan tree and the winding waterfront trail together they formed an interesting composition.

Born in 1955, Dukling was once a fishing boat and a fisherman's home. It's now the only remaining wooden fishing boat of this kind in Hong Kong. Dukling has witnessed Hong Kong's changes for 60 years and now it has taken up a new role as a sigh-seeing cruise ship which travels around Victoria harbour.

This is another scanned sketch from my UK sketch trip in 2016. The square in front of the Bath Abbey (The Abbey Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul) was filled with holiday makers. The facade of the abbey was brightly lit in the warm afternoon lights.
2016 英國之旅 在Bath畫的速寫。八月下午Bath大教堂廣場遊人處處，下午溫暖的陽光照射大教堂正面牆壁，令大教堂顯得格外輝煌。

Sketching at Black Sugar Coffee. Instead of sketching the inside, I sat outside of the cafe and sketched the reflection of the street including myself, a bit of the interior of the cafe through the entrance and the bended streetscape where the cafe is located.

After sketching the Aberdeen harbour, I went with a few sketch friends to the Ap Lei Chau Hung Shing Temple to sketch. Hung Shing is the male sea god of the South Sea. I sketched not just the temple but also the Banyan tree and the very affectionate temple cat.
