Wai-leung Lai / 與林建才閒談他的插畫路 And so we chatted, Kin-choi Lam and illustration art

FP writer Wai-leung Lai was there as Kin-choi Lam set up his book launch event at FP, and started to traced his journey as an illustration-artist. 從業餘興趣成為終身志業,由摸索學習到邁步向前。貧瘠的藝術土壤上,一個青年畫家的成長歷程,據點作者黎偉亮用文字素描了一個他認識的林建才和他獨有的故事。

人的一生從呱呱墜地開始,長大後會變成怎樣,誰也說不準。平凡人往往有不平凡的一面 …。 “What would become of me?” One could only wait to be surprised, FP writer Wai-leung Lai writes.

總在你身邊 (十):明日的回憶 Just Around You 10: Remembrance of Tomorrow

Speaking through faint old objects, FP Manager/writer Wai-leung Lai re-experienced his past as a precarious future as he packed up the public estate flat where he grew up. 與母親收拾細軟之際,據點作者黎偉亮鑽進這個她守望了半個世紀的公屋小宅,順道借舊物說說往事一二,比比今昔。從昏黃細物中,他看見了似近實遠、隱而即現的「未來」。

LAI Wai-leung / 總在你身邊 (九) – 起身喇! Just Around You 9: “Wakey-wakey!”

What was life like for an ordinary kid growing up in crammed flats in public housing? Tough, but ordinary, when the notion of “poverty” was not turned into an ideology that undermines you. 1960s, 1970s. Hong Kong. FP writer Wai-leung Lai recalls… 只有最基本的資源也是日子的一種。活著總有生趣,就看你。那是當「缺乏豪華生活」未被化成統計,未被化作意識形態之前…。普通人的普通故事。

LAI Wai-leung / 不是影評。從光華迸發到日暮星沉,由舊戲「英雄本色」說起  A Better Tomorrow and beyond, not a film review

LAI Wai-leung / 不是影評。從光華迸發到日暮星沉,由舊戲「英雄本色」說起 A Better Tomorrow and beyond, not a film review

In an extended roll call of local made movies, FP writer Wai-leung Lai tells an integrated story of his history of local film viewing, an assertion of the right of a serious non-expert viewer’s voice to be heard. After, popular cinema is a specific way to connect with the ordinary people on the level of living. And after all, Readership Theories have covered much ground in film and media studies in the past 30 something years in the academia. 黎偉亮一個人睇戲的故事,追述多年來看港產片的心跡,說明了用心看戲也就是用心活著。一個用心的觀眾絕對有權在「影評」的建制圈外肯定表述的聲音。

LAI Wai-leung / 總在你身邊(八): 那年初夏 Just Around You 8: Early Summer That Year

No major personal drama. But the recurring scenario of 30 years of witnessing the changing relation between a country and a city thickens as the annual ceremonial spectacle is about to transfigure… — Episode 8 of FP writer Wai’s “Just around You.” 紀念的景觀儀式或不永恆… 一個成長於香港的女孩,在維園外試圗尋找多年來的恆常足跡 — 那串一年復一年,從無間斷,自己踏出來的足跡。

LAI Wai-leung / 總在你身邊(七): 蟹緣半生  Just Around you 7: half of a life with crabs

LAI Wai-leung / 總在你身邊(七): 蟹緣半生 Just Around you 7: half of a life with crabs

To remember the crab cuisine of our city is also to remember the rise and fall of her glamour. FP writer Wai stock-took a dozen of connoisseur recipes and other popular ways to prepare crabs … 記住吃過甚麼,是記住自己存在過的一種方法。往事煙消雲散,舊物亦難再回味,FP 黎偉亮衹好挖掘記憶留下文字聊以解饞,亦算為本土飲食文化最輝煌時代留下點滴印記。十幾款蟹菜。一些消失了的名店。一些 DIY 的提示。

LAI Wai-leung / 總在你身邊(六):如果 Just around you 6: if…

In the 6th piece of his “Just Around You” ficto-documentary series, FP writer Wai tells a familiar story often told in Hong Kong movies and TV series except that it is a real one. 黎偉亮在虛擬式記錄系列「總在你身邊」6 說了個耳熟能詳的香港邊緣人的故事,像極了電影電視橋段,只是…。「不是要寫一篇警世的文章,只想訴說人生的無奈,可憐可悲還可恨,祇能由自己決定。」

LAI Wai-leung / 總在你身邊(五): 黑暗中對峙 絕望仍奮戰 瘟疫蔓延時 惟信念不變

In the 5th piece of his “Just Around You” series, FP writer/manager Wai delivers a self-dialogue through two fictional characters… How to live with hope and what hope is in store?「總在你身邊」要說的是這個地方普通人的故事,其中人物的名字或故事情節容或杜撰,但角色的處境及遭遇皆為我所知所遇所見所聞,志在刻劃現實。系列的第五篇有如一個人的一個「我 」和自己的另一個「我」在聊天,在這個城市最艱辛的一年給自己加把勁。
