Hong Kong police on Monday charged nine organisers of the 2014 pro-democracy demonstrations, just a day after a new Beijing-backed leader was chosen, vowing to unite society.

The move provoked anger and disbelief among protesters and heightened political tension in the Chinese-ruled city.

VIDEO ORIGINALLY FROM REUTERS, PICKED BY OTHER MEDIA LINKS:

Jan 26 A Lego rooster made of 220,000 red, white, yellow and green toy bricks will be the centerpiece of a float in Hong Kong’s Lunar New Year parade to usher in the Year of the Rooster.

Andy Hung, the territory’s only certified Lego professional builder, was commissioned by the Hong Kong Tourism Board to create the two-metre (6.5 ft) tall bird.

“I wanted to use Lego pieces that resonate with people from the East and impress my audience,” Hung told Reuters Television.

The rooster, which took 5 people 1-1/2 months to build, is one of several Lego statues on the float, including a life-sized farmer holding a rake, a tuxedo-clad waiter and a race car driver clutching his helmet.

The night-time parade takes place on Saturday, the first day of the Lunar New Year, when 10 floats will light up the streets of Hong Kong’s famous Tsim Sha Tsui shopping district.

Hung, a full-time artist with studios in Hong Kong and Beijing, is one of Asia’s three certified Lego professionals.

The group comprises adult hobbyists who have turned their passion into a professional activity, Lego says on its website.

In Nature and the Rain

The day when I was in Kokpayom village from Thailand, a Muslim fishing village located 10 kilometers away from its district called LaNgu and close to the seawater canal surrounded by mangrove forests.

I was astonished by the strong connection children to have with nature. They were having joy, having fun and playing in the mud with heavy rain falling down.

As a city kid seldom played with dirt, I strongly admired and appreciated their pure motivation.

I have a dream: In their pure eyes always have many hopes and expectations.

Natural Slide: In Kokpayom village where children seldom have chances to play with the real slide, thus, they have their own creation to build a natural side with smooth mud near the river.

I am the King of the world: The river nearby is children’s favorite swimming pool,  children play in the river without any restraint.

The Musketeers: In raining days, holes were filled with water, which turns into children’s best playground.
