Итоги 2024 года и новые посты

Всем привет!

Давненько не писал. Было много дел. И так и не разгрёб авгиевы конюшни. Мне сообщили, что есть бэкапы моего сайта. Поэтому сначала проверю их и посты оттуда, чтобы не писать заново, а просто скопировать.

Сначала я напишу про сравнение Тайланда в 2015 и 2023 году. Затем будет пост про Тайвань. После него посты про Японию. Гонконгские посты будут в виде общих впечатлений и происходившего за полгода. Затем будет чуть-чуть про Москву и область. И, наконец, про поездку в Австралию.

Будет много фото и постов. Видео пока не будет – нет софта, а крутой ноут я с собой не брал. По возможности буду писать на английском (кратко) и русском (полнее).

Как пересечь границу Гонконга и Макао / Hong Kong to Macau

There are multiple sources of how to get to Macau SAR (Aomen) from Hong Kong SAR (Xianggang): here or here. That is why I will write this post in Russian. If you have any questions, please, ask me in the comment section.

В этом посте я напишу о том, как пересечь границу Гонконга (Сянган) и Макао (Аомэнь). Многие задают этот вопрос в чатах, сколько раз можно пересечь, сколько стоит и вообще стоит ли ездить. Ответы на эти вопросы вы увидите здесь. При желании, пишите вопросы в комментариях, которых никогда нет, что, возможно, свидетельствует о том, как доходчиво я пишу.

So, dear fellas, long time no talk. I’m in Hong Kong since August. Slowly doing my research, and other things will explain here. And some summary on what was done, what should be done by the end of the year.

Russian countryside

There is nothing much I can tell you about Hong Kong since my last post.

I’m now in Russia, will head to grandmother and then to India. After, I will be back to Hong Kong and will have to undergo compulsory COVID-19 quarantine. So, before May 5th I had my topic defence at the university. I had to explain the idea of my research proposal, my further Ph.D. research for the board of our professors from Visual Studies department. It was a disaster. But I passed it. I made many notes and will try to follow them, fill the gaps I found during the defence.

Then, I went to Russia and spent a lot of time trying to plan interviews. Unfortunately, most of them were cancelled. I saw my friends, did some research work, watched films and even went to St. Petersburg. Next week I will spend reading and updating my research proposal. Then, I will fly to grandmother and will spend around two weeks with her. Next, will fly to India and will see my fellow and colleague, and my friends whom I met in Shanghai Theater Academy. Finally, on the 19th, I will be back to HK.

HK didn’t change much except elections of the new chief executive. Carrie Lam is leaving her post – it’s understandable. She’s under sanctions. She need some time to rearrange her future. New CE has police background. So, the grip on HK will be tight. The biggest events are happening now in mainland in July and November. That’s why HK will be in the shadow of Beijing and related events. Slowly, HK government is trying to apply COVID-19 easing measures. But they can’t do much because of the political struggle in mainland for the future configuration of posts within power hierarchy. At the same time, it grants unique opportunities to slowly lift flight bans (already done, not sure for how long) and quarantine mandates. Mask mandates would be intact for a while I guess.

Let’s see how it goes. I really miss mainland and miss HK.

Hong Kong chronicles 03

This joke was quite popular in March in Hong Kong when bloggers noticed that after the hair salons were reopened, former Chief Executive of HK Carrie Lam looked a little bit different. So, the ban was lifted only for this purpose =)

Anyways, this post will be short and will be a summary of what changed in the city and how we survived in better circumstances than in Shanghai.
