What I’m listening to: Backchat and Phil Whelan on RTHK 3, blues and soul internet radio stations, and old CDs by artists such as Bob Marley and J.J. Cale. And Lenka with my five-year-old daughter.

What I’m reading: The South China Morning Post and The Economist. I get most of my news online.

What I’m watching: besides numerous short clips popping up on my newsfeeds, I watch the 7.30pm news, Pearl Report and Newsline. Out for movies as picked by my wife. My all-time favourites are films by David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino. Saturday night dinner is with America’s Funniest Home Videos and America’s Got Talent.

What artists I’m following: unless we include politicians, state leaders and local activists, I don’t follow artists.

What websites I’m visiting: the SCMP, The Economist, Huffington Post and StandNews – a Chinese online newspaper. I use Google Chrome with the translator app so that Chinese text appears automatically in English. Enough to know what goes on.
