Wireless- part of Everday Life: 2001 Centenary 2 pounds Coin


100th Anniversary of Marconi's 1st Wireless Transmission across the Atlantic.
Radio waves decorating centre and outer border while a spark of electricity linking the zeros of the date represents the generation of the signal designed by Robert Evans.
Guglielmo Marconi, with support of Italy in 1896, aged 21, came to England to conduct vital experiments, to file his first wireless patent and to set up in 1987, the world’s first wireless company. Before the turn of the century messages ha d been exchanged between Queen Victoria at Osborne House and the Prince of Wales on the Royal yacht, By June 1901. in the further range of tests, one form Wimereux to Chelmsford and another from Cornwall to Crookhaven, Marconi had crossed both the English channel and the Irish Sea by wireless. His next step was to bridge the Atlantic and m in doing so, he changed the face of the world forever.
Nowhere was the important fo wireless telegraphy more poignantly borne out than in 1912, the 703 survivors of the Titanic owing their lives, according to official opinion, to One Man, Mr. Marconi…and his wonderful invention.

Life is getting Worse

First of all, I am clarifying that I am not a materialist. As People talks about “You are what you eat, you eat what you are…” any Watcher said that You are what you wear” and I have declare as I always mention in my blog, my English is lousy!
What I can see nowadays when I sit at the departure hall of Hong Kong Airport watching those people passing by. What I can notice is that, they might be rich and never have short of money but look at what they are possessing, what they are using, what they are wearing, listening are all below the standard of the 80’s!
That is a bit too much when I say like this.. but look at what we have now… I guess that is the end result of this over developed industrialized commercial world…
Music
Lesser people know, understand what Analogue music produced from the MC cartridge comparing with thee Digital music read by the Laser head. Less then 0.01% of HK people goes to concert for Classic music a year.
Most of the people goes for fast food.
Lesser people now what real good Wanton Noodles are. Now they eat the noodles has a strong Alkaline smell, The wanton is too dry, they dare not use more fat as people may not like to eat for sake of Health. Too much fast food makes you fat.
Wine
People may not know what real good wine is, sometimes expensive one does not necessary gurantee good one, as storage is a big question.
Dress-up
Too many over dressed with brands.
Over-protected will kill them
Many past 90 youth don't know who to cross the road.
iPHone and Book
Poeple of HK seoldom read books, How cna we change this culture!?
Shoe
I have seen a lot of expensive but dirt shoes, no one cleans the shoes

HK is the best selected place for Visitor in Chritmas

HK, a dynamic city, though it has been troubled by the worsening air pollution problem due to the lousy officer who knows nothing about anything but sitting in their office “Fishing” ( a colloquial term meaning “ Sleeping”) though. It is still one of the best ten mostly selected, or recommended placed for visitor in December…
Climate
We had winter sometimes the temperature is about 9-14 Degrees, that give you a winter feeling… Today the Sek Kong Temperature is 7 Deg C and Tsuen Wan is 9 Deg C.
HK is a Dynamic and vibrant City
At Mid of November, most of big buildings, shopping arcades and private firms would spend time in decorating their shop and building with a brisk of Christmas atmosphere…We had a lot of beautiful Christmas decoration which is no the boring Classic Christmas Tree!
Shopping
We would likely have a lot of Sales in major Shops in HK, tourist would not be feeling unhappy when they see their favourite shopping list is being sold at 70% of less when they came here in September.
Food and Eatery
The Food of HK has never disappointed you, only concern is your weight, after a week in HK, you will gain weight 5 pounds guaranteed
Cost of expenses
HK Dollars is pegged with US greenback, a good incentive for European, SEA and Chinese as they get a lot of intrinsic discounts just from Exchange rate itself.
It would be more encouraging if the Hotel Charges of Hotel would be lowered a bit.
Authentic Goods
Most of the luxury brands are actually available in China large City, but when you come to HK, just you go to Canton Road, likely you can get all your beloved branded goods you like in one afternoon, Saving a lot of time..
China Riches…
Now from my personal market studies
80% tourist if from China, and they spend about HKD3,000 per day per head.. that is a lot to boost up HK’s economy.
I think that is why every year, HK is selected as the top 5 city for Christmas visit.
