◪ 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. I have completed my goal to become a marathon swimmer in July 2019.

I have swum most local OWS competitions including the Stanley Classic 3 km, McBean Middle Island Challenge (3.7 km), The DWB and The Polson 5 (approximately 5 km).

I have also swum a few overseas open water competitions including the Bosphorus race from Asia to Europe (approximately 6.5 km with current assist), and LGSA Classic (13 km from Lausanne to Évian-les-bains).

♚ 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.
