新居入伙 緬懷追夢之旅







Painstaking efforts have been made to familiarize myself with Blogspot and refurbish my new blog. Had it not been my friends’ technical help, I could not have faced the upheaval and turmoil of the move. Please accept my sincere thanks.


My move was not a smooth one though. After moving to Blogspot, some of my pictures were so huge that I had to re-size them. Of course, I did not have the time to re-size all of them. Also, I was frustrated by the ubiquitous dead photo links. Anyway, one may refer to my backup in Xuite whenever necessary.

Having said that, the move tugs at my heartstrings. First, I am deeply touched by Yahoo bloggers who are willing to share useful tips on how to move blog. We also do our best to keep in contact with our blog mates whom we have known for seven years. In unity, there is strength. Second, I reminisce about the movie dream I achieved from 2007 to 2009.

While removing the dead photo links in my blog, I read my articles again and I was amazed by my personal growth and self-understanding. In my Google+ page is my self-introduction: 於零七年三月二日成立網上電影評論節目影畫絮語,評論超過二百部電影。兩年後步入三字頭,生活變得營營役役,現在只能窩在部落格繼續發夢。廿七歲圓電影夢,三字頭學習享受生命。熱愛電影、美食、羽毛球、旅遊、攝影、音樂、唱歌、英語及心理學。就將身邊所有細意品嚐,把這個部落格送給十年後的我。

Also, I listened to some episodes we recorded in the past. I was very proud of the achievement. The shows were well-organized and our voices displayed my sincere passion for movies. I therefore could not help uploading a few episodes onto my YouTube Channel. The 20-year-old me would not believe his ears.

Moreover, I really like the jingle I used in the early episodes. While listening to it, a smile touched the corners of my mouth. It was silly, but sincere.
電影讓我擴闊視野
電影叫我反思生命
電影令我想起你
影畫絮語

At the age of thirty three, do I have any other dreams that I have not achieved? Yes, I do. They are for the time being the secrets of mine and I hope one day I will have the courage to share them with you in my blog. As a middle-aged man, I know that I will be assigned more administrative duties in my workplace, which may hinder me from pursuing them. Despite the foreseeable difficulties, I will persevere in the pursuit of my remaining dreams in the future, without which I am just a walking skeleton with a wasted soul.

From Yahoo to Blogspot, I witness our inextinguishable passion for sharing beautiful things in our lives. Happiness is real when shared. Bloggers, keep sharing. You are not alone.

    1. Thank you very much. I hope it looks good. However, I am confused by my two Google+ pages (Kenji Chan + movetheereviews), my Google+ Badge and 追蹤者. I do not know how to 追蹤 others.

      刪除
    2. 1. Go to http://www.blogger.com/home.
      2. Look at the left hand side. Under your blog title there should be a button which says 新增. Click that button and input the link of the blogger you want to follow.

      You can also click on the badge of your followers. A pop-up window will appear and on the top right corner there is a button called 追蹤.

      刪除
    3. I have just tried. I know how to follow people by using the badge and 新增. Thank you so much. How about my two Google+ pages (Kenji Chan + movetheereviews)? No one subscribes to my movetheereviews Google+ page. I am not sure if this page is necessary. Maybe my personal Google+ page is already enough.

      刪除
    4. I am also confused by the Google+ page, sometimes I don''t know by pressing a certain button, am I following a person's blog or am I adding him/her to my google+ circle...

      刪除
    5. TRUE! It is confusing. Chestnut Girl has shared with us how to follow a blog. Adding a friend to your circle is easier. By the way, when I press your name, I can see your introduction page. How can you do that?

      刪除
    6. Kenji,我同芝用的是blogger 的 profile,所以才會連去 intro page,你用 Google+ 是做不到的。如果你想連去 intro page,你要跟這裡的指示做:

    1. Thank you. Just spend some time studying the functions and you will find that it is more useful than Yahoo Blog. Of course, Blogger is much less easily search-able on the internet.

      刪除
  6. amazed by what you developed there ... keep it up and enjoy writing and sharing there ^^

    btw, i don't know if i can move to xuite as well ( pixnet is my temporary home, still searching the platform more suitable to me =P ) ... you've moved to xuite as well ? smooth process anyway ?

    回覆刪除
    回覆
    1. My move to Xuite is OK, because it is automatically done by Yahoo. However, some categorization is wrong. I do not fix the problems because I am not going to use it. It is just a backup. Blogger is good. Most of the Yahoo bloggers move here. Think about it!

      刪除
  7. Kenji,你這篇文章令人感動。很喜歡這句:

    1. Thank you for reading it. The move reminds me of my pursuit of my movie dream, which is a beautiful journey that I will never forget for the rest of my life. Let's live life to the full.

  9. I'm so disappointed abut Barfi, quite boring esp 所謂的笑位, nearly felt asleep 1/3 of the film.
    However, the theme message, music and songs are great!

    回覆刪除
    回覆
    1. Oh... I thought you would love it. I love the cast, the setting and the songs. I also like the fact that the main characters do not have much to say. However, I felt asleep in the middle of the film. The part drags and I found the first girl much more attractive than another girl with autism.

      刪除
    2. Up till now, I still not remove all essay to my new home, as u said, really need great effort to re-size the photos again, and the layout so poor.
      So glad that u gave quite high rate to "Like Father, Like Son" & "Prisoner", also hope u will put some comments on them. However, I disagreed that "The Great Passage" is worth being the nominee of the Best Foreign Language Film of 2013 Oscar Award, it's really too long and boring, I felt asleep 1/3 of the movie even the theme is quite creative, so I prefer LFLS or Nobody's Perfect (五體不滿足老師) to be the nominee.

      刪除
    3. Here's several wonderful and details analysis for "LFLS" & "Prisoners"

    2. 1. I am very lucky indeed. However, the move was NOT a smooth one. I had to remove some of the pics here. It took me three days to fix everything.
      2. Thank you so much for your sharing. I will try to have a look at the weekend.

    3. Obviously, 匿名 never intends to discuss this movie with me. He offers no argument. Anyway, watching a movie is a subjective experience. I wish he could share with us why he loves the movie. I think it is a good movie, yet it is far from perfection. The cast is good, but the pace in some scenes is so unnecessarily slow that I get lost.

      刪除
    4. 【其後】的故事讓我投入不了,不過電影代表某個時代某種精神面貌,還是很高興能在大銀幕觀賞。
      他不跟你討論,還有我嘛 :P

    5. YEAH!!! I totally agree. It is still worth watching.

    1. I do remember you. Thank you so much for asking me a thought-provoking question. With more responsibilities, I stopped thinking about dreams at a certain point. Your question reminds me that without dreams, I am just a walking skeleton with a wasted soul. Thank you.

    3. Thanks a lot for your visit. You're right. I have been very busy. Still, I insist on trying to enjoy my life to the full. Despite being busy, I have had a few good dining experiences which I would love to share here. I have also watched some very good movies. It is a pity that I don't have the time to go blogging. Sigh... I will definitely share my top 10 movies and other highly recommended ones at the end of the year. Stay tuned. Thanks! Wilson, do you have a blog?

    4. i just read blog; i don't write blog. hahaha!!

    回覆
    1. Did you fall asleep because you were very tired? I love it very much. As for About Time, I like the cast and the set, but it is similar to other films on time traveling in terms of messages. I also do not understand why he stops traveling. After all, being able to travel back to the past has many advantages.

    3. I see. The character is not pleasing, yet I find it very well developed. Although I love the script, I think the success is mainly attributed to Cate Blanchett's acting.

    4. Cate is one of my favourite actresses. She is almost perfect.
      Have you seen The Shipping News? Cate was also great in it.

    5. I have not!!! I have not even heard of it. Will it be formally released in Hong Kong?

    2. 最近常加班,要抽時間看,明晚約了同事看9:55pm(買不到早一場的票,加上其中兩個要加班)殭屍。雖然辛苦,但想起有好戲看就開心。:D

    3. 還是調較一下心情的好,不要抱太大期望進場啊!
      Captain Phillips 真係要睇,Tom Hanks 的演出超精彩!

    4. 殭屍的劇情唔係好得,不過影像和氣氛幾好。
      哎吔,幾時睇Captain Phillips好呢,星期六日都要返工,放工又約咗人。真係想快D睇。

      刪除
    5. Thanks so much for leaving a message here. I may need to skip it. Foreign reviews are average, but local reviews are quite positive. Captain Phillips has an exciting story, but what impresses me most is Tom Hank's acting, especially at the end. It is probably his best acting performance. By the way, many good movies are coming, e.g. Prisoners, Call Girl and Like Father, Like Son. WHAT SHOULD I DO... I have been very busy too. So, maybe I should skip 殭屍.

      刪除
    6. I'll probably skip Like Father, Like Son. Prisoners is over 2.5 hours. We really need to find time (and energy) to watch this one ... :(
      芝:要睇要快喎,睇個勢好似就嚟落畫咁~
