"As I was looking for a place to stay, I realised most of the windows had a view of walls.

“On an unsafe night in mid-July 2019, he and I began to talk incessantly. Soon after that, I went to study Chinese Medicine in Guangxi. In order to save money, I looked for a place opposite the school in the village inside the city, an area literally called "village within the city" (城中村). The rent seemed the lowest in the city, so many migrant workers from other provinces were attracted to settle down there. As for him, he has moved out (to another city). He would always share photos of food with me as we were talking about our lives, which refueled our exhausted spirits and bodies with something.”


「2019年7月中旬在一個不平安的晚上開始與他無間斷的交談。後來我到了廣西讀書,為了節省金錢,在學校對面的城中村找房子。這裡的租金基乎是這城市最便宜的,聚集許多外來打工的人居住。至於移居異地的他,在分享生活時刻上總有食物的照片, 填充彼此匱乏的精神和身體。」
