Spring should have started since March, however the temperature remained around 10-15c and the sun liked playing hide and seek to us.

The game has now ended. The sun, fog and flowers hang out altogether. People may think of going to Japan, Korea and Taiwan for cherry blossom while Hong Kong is an alternative.

But how long will this spring last? In the coming weeks (10-17 April), the temperatures will be above 20c and the highest point be around 27c. The life of the season may be short like sakura. Now you can see people on the street wearing summer clothes and even with flip-flops.

In Instagram, I saw a thread from a university student who would choose to capture the precious moment when fog suddenly covered the city, rather than attending school lessons. There are so many beautiful things that last not long and never happen once again. That’s why some people seems to be irrational and crazy when they realize they should do something important for them. Short and uncertain human life can push us forward.

三月本來是香港的春天,可是氣溫長期在10-15度左右。冬天的溫度,且常常陰天。春暖花開的日子,結果延遲到這個月份,陽光和大霧間斷的出現。想到春季,就想到櫻花,除了日韓台三地之外,香港還是有一些。

可是這次春天能維持多久呢?下星期,溫度超過20度,日間最高溫為27度。也許,春天像櫻花一樣的短,而現在人們都穿上夏天的裝束,甚至夾腳拖。

在Instagram,我看到一名大學生在追逐突然大霧的美景與上課之間取了前者。的確,美好事物總是來得短暫,且很難再來。所以為什麼有些人看來不是太理性,甚至發瘋的追尋他們認為重要的事情。人生短暫且變幻無常,是可以把我們一直推前的。
