Sports

◪ Orienteering

orienteering

I started orienteering in 2012 after my A-levels, since then I join local orienteering races regularly (especially sprint orienteering race).

I am currently focusing on sprint orienteering and trail orienteering, and represented Hong Kong in the trail orienteering world championships in 2017 and 2018, while still doing forest orienteering sometimes.

🏊 swimming

I have been training for open water swimming seriously since 2018, with the goal to become a marathon swimmer by March 2020.

I have swum competitions including the Tolo Harbour Swim from Sam Mun Tsai to Tai Mei Tuk (2.6 km), and the Chinese New Year winter swim at Golden Beach on the 3rd day of Chinese New Year. Recently, I have also done longer competitions including the Stanley Classic 3 km and McBean Middle Island Challenge (3.7 km).

♚ Board and card games

I also play board and card games with my classmates. I like playing mah-jong and contract bridge the most.

⛵ Sailing

sailing

I like the feeling of wind. I do dinghy sailing and windsurfing. I joined the sailing race of scout regatta in 2012.

Transport

I am a local transport fan, in particular, bus fan and rail fan. I sometimes take photos of buses and light rail vehicles in Hong Kong, especially old buses. I also report whereabouts to various web sites.

Recently, I started analysing the value and costs of various modes of transport, comparing the efficiency, and read academic papers related to transport. In the future, I may try to develop a web site for transport planning and study a related higher degree, transforming myself from a transport fan to a transport professional.
