Without food for two days, I feel like vomiting however 兩天沒吃,但我想吐, 2013

The time has been forgotten about cultivating my own habit which I am only willing to sleep until the dawn. Stressful life in Hong Kong remain our working condition. I am sometimes exhausted, though it is natural to be in a trance alone facing white walls in a room.
