Give the gift of true warmth this season

As the weather turns colder, we should think about whether the poor have enough clothes to stay warm.

Who's to blame for uncaring society?

The story about the girl in Foshan who died after being run over twice by cars has raised public concern.

Almost everyone is blaming the 18 passers-by who didn't stop and help the child. But we need to think about why these people did not want to help the victim.

How to avoid misunderstandings

Have you ever been misunderstood? Or have you ever misunderstood others? I certainly have.

When you are misunderstood by people who are very close to you, you might feel sad, angry - even helpless.

It's this moment that counts

'Nothing is forever'. I read this phrase in a novel and I loved it. I had mixed feelings when I saw the phrase - it's complicated but it's so true.

Parents deserve respect

Many children behave like little princes or princesses at home. They want their parents to pamper them non-stop. Some even order their parents about.

Dramatic change of heart

I've had a change of heart about drama after watching a performance at City Hall. I wouldn't have thought this was possible because I've rarely showed any interest in plays, especially local productions.

Hong Kong needs to foster creativity

The ceremonies at the East Asian Games really impressed me. I had never seen such a creative event. I am sure tourists must have felt the same way. I think the Games organisers did a great job.

Speaking in public

Everyone has their own tics and mannerisms when they give speeches. They do them unconsciously, which makes them very difficult to correct - we don't know we are making them. Usually they happen when we are nervous, uncomfortable or shy.
