People from all corners of the globe say HK is a city that never sleeps.  Perhaps they haven’t been to New York.  If they have been to New York, they will agree that HK is nothing compared to it.

Tonight was my first night experiencing the night life of New Yorkers.    My colleague and I went to see the musical “A Chorus Line”.

The plot is about a group of dancers audition for a new Broadway show.  All of them have only one dream - get a job as a dancer.  The story tells the laughter, sweat, and tears of these dancers.  The singing of the performers was excellent and the dancing was fantastic as well.  However, compared with the classics “Les Miserables” and “The Phantom of the Opera”, it seemed a bit short.  It only lasts for two hours and there is no intermission.

If you buy the programme of this musical, you can have a free bag.

The red one is the programme and the small one is given for free when the usher leads you to your seat. 

Life starts after the musicals.

The streets were filled with people.  In Hong Kong, at around 10:30pm to 11:00pm, big department stores and shops are closed.  But here in New York, some stay open till 1:00am.

The streets in New York are quite dirty.  Though you won't see a lot of "big" rubbish, cigarette buds are everywhere.  It's like Hong Kong.  One can't smoke indoors, so you will see at anytime, anywhere, groups of people will gather together outside shops, office buildings, restaurants and pubs smoking. 

Hong Kong government and citizens are actually doing extraordinary well in keeping our city clean. 

You can also see many people selling things on the streets.  You know what they are selling?  I thought I were still in Mongkok.  They are selling fake brand-named handbags, sunglasses and even Rolex watches.  When one shouts "bags", all people will flock to that direction and start picking and choosing.

[1] Broadway...!

some bright students in my humble school love dancing to the bone but they aspire to be doc and so cannot afford to spend the whole weekend to dance till they're in a trance.

I told them to go ahead if they were to proceed with their dancing career in Broadway ... otherwise, they gotta be bookworms till their dream comes true. By then they can indulge in that performing art.

those ECA teachers and my boss don't reckon the fact that those kids cannot cope with so many things and should never be a jack of all trades...

What can I do? Watching the paint dry?
