Outside academia, I am a strong believer of Buddhism.
I have just started practicing meditation but the progress has been rather slow.
I am guided by Theravada Buddhism.
In Australia, I occasionally visit a temple in Adelaide which is a branch of the same temple I usually go to whenever I am in Hong Kong.
In Hong Kong, I usually go to Wat Buddhadhammaram in Yuen Long where I have my teachers there. The temple strictly follows a Thai forest tradition of Buddhism.
Aside from Buddhism, I also like listening to Cantonese songs, especially Cantonese oldies - those in late 80s or early 90s. My most favourite singer is the late Danny Chan Bak-Keung (陳百強)
