Editor's Note
















Dear Reader,


We can only be deceived when there is a chance of realisation. In the past issues, we have taken pride in presenting carefully investigated facts and pledged to forge ahead in the journey for truth… but what’s next? A culmination of five years worth of introspection, we zoomed into the very essence of an idea and invite you to SEE deception through our and our writers’ eyes. 


Sense/ Stimulate – Before anything, we shall converse with ourselves prudently about how to proceed. Recall your instincts––what comes to mind when you face unpleasantries, see a needy afar, look at yourself in the mirror? How do we know if we are deceived? Is realisation just another deception?


Examine – Just like when you regain sight from the darkness, it is time to let your eyes refocus. Shy not away from examining and questioning humanity, history and culture. But what follows when deception floats to the surface? In hopes of answers, we consulted the advice of psychology expert Professor Suzanne So and health data specialist Professor Kelvin Tsoi. But perhaps deception itself is not always so important when we have values and purposes we hold dear.


Experience – With renewed views and eyesight, we are ready to explore the real world again. Indulge in a salivating review of Indian delicacies in Hong Kong or engage in a reflective dialogue revolving around Green Knights.


We have been challenging facts, arguments and our analytical tools, constantly searching for evidence and proofs. But what if truths are in themselves beyond our eyereach? Maybe when we are blindfolded by deceptions we are kidnapped from truths. But maybe we are protected from the daunts and dangers in daylight at the same time. It takes courage and skill to uncover the hidden, for what is to discover may change your world forever. 


Perhaps, the answer to a world of uncertainties is to believe in what you think. After all, we are not only exploring, we are living and experiencing. Be discerning, but don’t forget to enjoy the ride.

Yours sincerely,

Buji Wong and Charlotte Ip

Life is a kite and you need to run against the wind

to gain a better view of the world around us

Just because I am curious :)

Polishing writing and communication skills
