會洲的構思--霧園走入歷史 brain child of Hoi Chew--Mist Garden gone with the wind

劉會洲出任詩巫市議會主席期間,敢敢冒犯眾怒,將甘榜艾莆路攔腰斬斷,設立一座”霧園”.据他當時說,可以協助降低氣溫幾度,一時傳為”佳話”.
可是,他在2010年3月間去世後,不到一年時間,同樣是Robert Lau的堂弟劉會耀,非但在5月間的詩巫國會選區補選中,保不住他的議席.如今,連他的這項構思,也是由堂弟劉會耀為首的詩巫市議會交通小組,決定將之剷除.
劉會洲泉下有知,相信會搖頭嘆氣,這個堂弟,不叫Robert也罷....
the brain child of Robert Lau, former mayor of Sibu Municipal Council, and member of parliament for Sibu, to create a "Mist Garden" in the middle of Kampong Nyabor road, which really caused a big out-cry from many quarters, including his own nephew Vincent Lau. now, after he died in March, 2010, not only his parliamentary seat could not be retained by his cousin, also called Robert Lau, a year later, his brain-child, the "Mist Garden" is demolished by the younger Robert Lau, who is heading the standing committee of Works & Traffic of SMC. what a pity...

玻璃窗上的蜘蛛 spiders on the glass

I did not took the photo properly, using micro lens, not using tri-pot, laziness won't help, sharpness is compromised. needless to say, not focusing on the objects. what a waste.....沒有好好的拍,微焦鏡頭沒有好好應用,三腳架也懶得用...結果?好像沒有抓到焦點.浪費.這群玻璃窗上的蜘蛛.
