Visiting Home

This week I am visiting my parents in Hong Kong. I have grown up in Hong Kong and lived there for most of my life. But since 13 years ago I have moved aboard. During the time I make regular visit but otherwise have not spend too much time here. I have left long enough that I feel out of touch with my birth place in many ways.

There are seas of change during the past decade. Large scale development and infrastructure work following the opening of the new airport have changed the physical face Hong Kong. New batch of youngsters are refining what's chic and fashionable. On the other hand a lot have remained the same. My home in Mong Kok is still the busiest commercial district. Flashy new building and shopping center sprouts all around, standing side by side with dusty old building, the kind of old building that I know so well when I grown up. People seem to busy working everyday, just like way it was as always.

I have undergone many personal change as well. My son has turned two and I'm learning everything about parenting. Seeing my aging parents also evoke a lot of my own childhood. So many things we have done in the past that will only remain in memory because time has changed.

I find myself become very reflective these days. It is an odd for me to find this adjective to describe my state of consciousness. Indeed I am reflective enough to be aware of myself being reflective.
