【TaiPo|大埔】Fong Ma Po (Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree)|放马莆(林村许愿树)

September 14, 2013, Saturday
Back to my Hong Kong travelogue, don't you miss it?? Yea, I know I should write more about this, I've been to many place in Hong Kong. But even so I still like to go there, for me Hong Kong always have lot of places to explore.
***************************************************************************
回到我香港文,是不是有很懷念的感覺?因爲有太多,所以它都一直被我放置著沒有去寫。香港是一個去了讓我還想再去的地方,因爲是一個蠻輕鬆的旅程,所以逗留的時間是比較長一些。

✈1
My first time was too long and not just you, I'm so glad that I get to write my second day too!! So where's my second day destination?? Try somewhere far away, somewhere tourists would never go...
***************************************************************************
我第一天都写了很久,是不是有一种“终于到了第二天的感觉啊??   哈哈哈!”   还有十天是要写到何时啊??? 而且2016年呢?哈哈哈哈。。。一年拖過一年。。。  

✈2
So flip through my travel book, I saw this, the wishing tree, where I always see in TVB drama but never been there before. Thus let's give a try to checkout this place.
***************************************************************************
第二天看过动新闻,翻开旅游书,想说就要去一些不一样的地方,就看到这个愿望树,小时候看几部TVB电视剧里面不时都会有愿望树的,所以就朝这个地方去了!

✈3
I was staying at Causeway Bay, from Causeway Bay MRT Station to Admiralty Station then change from Blue Line to Red Line to Tsim Sha Tsui Station. From Tsim Sha Tsui to East Tsim Sha Tsui Station, the Purple Line to the last station Hung Hom Station then the last is change to Light Blue line to Tai Po Market Station....(very complicated, right?? I know, because it's off city places)
***************************************************************************
我住在銅鑼灣,从銅鑼灣站搭地铁到金鐘站,蓝线转红线到尖沙咀站内,从尖沙咀内走到紫线的尖東站,去到总站紅磡站,再搭浅蓝线到大埔墟站

✈4
Hung Hom Station is the last station on the purple and light blue line. The purple line is towards Tuen Mun Station, which is where I came from. As to the Tai Po Market Station, it has to take the light blue line which is towards Lo Wu Station or Lok Ma Chau Station.
***************************************************************************
紅磡站是紫线和浅蓝线的終點站,紫线去屯門站总站,浅蓝线去到羅湖站落馬洲站。去大埔墟站站的,無論到羅湖站還是落馬洲站也是可以順路抵達的,所以基本上到了這條線就可以放心了。

✈5
Can't imagine how detailed I was on the first few days. Yea, something like this details, you won't find it more in the posts later. So trust me, it's never too much to take as many pictures as you like before you forgot.
***************************************************************************
开始的几天就很勤勞的,去到哪裡都一定會拍一拍,但过后的幾天我都懶惰的没有在拍了,其實要拍的目的都是為了想要算一下有几站才会到达目的地。

✈6
One of the reason that makes me like Hong Kong so much is their transportation, it's very convenient for anyone to reach anywhere (which also can explained most of my money was spend over here)
***************************************************************************
香港地铁非常方便,很多人问我,香港花很多在哪里,我说在交通工具上,我有种爱上坐交通工具的变态兴趣(但是马来西亚的交通工具。。。就另谈别类)

✈7
According to the travelogue book, my destination can reach by Kowloon Bus 64K, 65K and New Territories Mini Bus 25K. Follow the bus line name and look for the gate to exit. Got it! The one shown here is A3.
***************************************************************************
根据书本说九龍巴士64K線九龍巴士65K線新界專綫小巴25K線都可以到到达。 再對照火車站所提供的资讯板看哪個出口,這是寫着A3出口。

✈8
From the exit map of the train station to look for the A3 exit. Good to have a picture with you too, in case you get lost, at least you've something with you to ask around.
***************************************************************************
再看看A3出口在哪里,其實地圖拍一拍也好,因為即使迷路也至少有東西可以對照回。科技發達的時代,手機拍照的方便用處也在這裡。

✈9
Other from the big noticed board, here's the other one shown that there's another bus 64P is going there too. But since it was my first time there, better not take any risk, follow the easy path.
***************************************************************************
跟着资讯板走去搭巴士,原來除了64K和65K,還有64P,不過這個是特別線的。在人生路不熟的地方,就不要冒險太多,畢竟這個不是城市地區,萬一不見了,都不知道有沒有人知道。

✈10
This is a very off city station, from the station to the exit has to walk through some sort of very quiet tunnel like this. Then I started to recall back those Hong Kong dramas always like to take some rape or abducted scenes here (Back days I always like to complain why those girls like to walk in this kind of quiet place but not at those public and crowded places. Suddenly I felt like I was so stupid last time......)
***************************************************************************
都是地下道的,都没有什么人,有点可怕!   还好不是晚上,幻想开始回想起那些被掳走的强奸案件的警察电视剧,都是这种道路的   (我以前看就会一直骂说,这些女的是有光明大道不走,就偏爱走这些静静的道路吗?   忽然觉得自己很白痴)

✈11
Finally arrived at the bus station, felt a bit safe now and a few people were waiting in line in front of me, seems like I was just thinking and imagining too much. Don't have to wait long and the bus is here fast and leave fast, I wasn't enough to settle myself and the bus has already left.
***************************************************************************
终于走到巴士站,還好是没有一个人啦! 是我自己想太多,巴士站前面已有几位在等车了。不用等很久巴士就已經抵達,到站載人就離開了,完全沒有多餘的等候時間。

✈12
In the beginning of my trip, I always choose to sit in front, because I like to take more and clear pictures. These kind of bamboos here reminds of those Hong Kong movie and drama, polices always like to chase the thieves or whatever bad guys here, then in the end the bamboo can't support the weight and they fell, but always fell safely on ground......
***************************************************************************
一开始我都会选择坐前面,因为要拍照!   (这个竹子就让我想起那种警察追匪徒的电视剧,干嘛一定要爬这种啊??   然后就会有根竹子受不了重力而折掉,然后那绑着竹子的线就会松掉,然后两个人都会往下掉,但是也没有很高,还没开始喊,原来他们已经在地上了! =.=!!!)

✈13
Here we go!! My first day always full of excited and full of adventures. Many said that I'm very brave to travel alone, to be honest, I'm very scared too, just that I start my first step and go with the flow, actually it's not that scared and not much to worries.
***************************************************************************
出发咯!!! 第一天的旅程總是特別興奮,總是充滿著冒險感,不知道接下來會發生什麼事,看到什麼,遇見什麼。很多人都說一個人去旅行很勇敢,其實我一點都不勇敢,我只是兵來將擋,一步一步踏出去,其實也沒有想像中的可怕。

✈14
✈15
Finally arrived!! It's a very quiet place and I was the only one get down from bus. Glad that those places I went weren't many people around so I can any picture freely but how about I gone missing?? Is there anybody realized?????
***************************************************************************
终于到站了,这也是很安静的地方,只有我一个人下车。。。有点兴奋又有点担心,兴奋是我去的地方人不多,很好拍照!   担心的是会不会我被人捉掉不见都不会有人知道啊???

✈16
Hmm, here is the place, I'm right......but why it doesn't look like the one shown in the book?? I was so imagining like those I can throw my wishes with the orange up to tree......back to study the book, it was well written there, the tree finally couldn't support the weight so they decided to close it down.
***************************************************************************
来到了,不过怎么跟我想像的有点不一样,还以为是那种自己要抛柑上树的那种(那是因为我没有认真去读书的内容,不然回看2是有写明的许愿树因为符合不了重力所以被封起来了!!

✈17
Thus in order to stop the damaging done to the tree, they came out this idea that hang it on the banner instead. Hmm......but this one seems like have losing the actual meaning of the wishing tree, don't you feel like that?? Just like nowadays, people hardly light up the actual candle for praying instead replace it with the electrical candle.
***************************************************************************
所以當局制造了木架而取代許願樹,但這樣一挂還真的失去了傳統味道的感覺。不僅想起好像現在拜神的蠟燭,以前是真的點火,但現在的衹是開燈這樣了事。

✈18
Even so, since I was there, not to bother so much and do what I came here for. Bought this from the lady that in charged over there. Flashback to my childhood memories, I remember I've been to Guangzhou once, and they've a similar wishing tree like this, but that one I truly can throw the orange on to the tree. But by now, everything just can become memory in heart.
***************************************************************************
既然来到当然,雖然不是我想到的,但也要意思意思的許願一下嘛!印象中,在我小時候去廣州時候,好像真的有去過類似的許願樹,而當時的我是還可以自己丟上樹的,本以爲小時候的情景還可以重現,但現在只可惜當著回憶了(不过忘了开了后在拍照一张啊!)

✈19
In the end I still didn't get the chances to hang it myself but the lady did. She said after written everything, just pass it to her, that's all.....Next will be continued with I had my breakfast around here and still much to see around besides this.
***************************************************************************
过后我也没有自己挂上,而是交给那边的负责的阿姐!   她会负责挂上!   我也跟她在那边哈拉了很久,但是后来肚子饿了,所以才进去村内吃早餐!
