The African violet is well-known for its elegance and variety. Members of the public will have a chance to take a closer look at its different species at a thematic exhibition of African violets to be held from December 1 (Tuesday) at the Forsgate Conservatory in Hong Kong Park under the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD). The African violet, also known as Saintpaulia ionantha, is a herbaceous perennial of the gesneriad family that is native to Eastern Africa. A long flowering period, its small size and easy propagation make the African violet a popular indoor ornamental plant. It has many varieties with flowers blooming year round in a favourable growing environment. The hairy leaves cluster at the base of the African violet and come in various shapes, such as round and egg-shaped. The succulent and brittle leafstalks are similar in colour to the leaves. The flowers arise from the leaf clusters and come in a rich variety of colours on relatively short stalks. At the thematic exhibition, more than 300 pots of African violet are on display featuring a variety of over 50 species, including some special species. They are classified in terms of the flower type such as chimera, two-tone, fantasy, double; or in terms of the leaf type such as pointed, variegated and wavy, all showing off their natural beauty in the midst of the bright green. The exhibition also showcases the growth habits of the African violet and the planting skills needed, including the optimum temperature for planting, light, planting soil, etc, through display panels. Park-goers are invited to visit the exhibition, which will be open to the public free of charge from 9am to 5pm daily from December 1 to January 10, 2021, at the Forsgate Conservatory of Hong Kong Park, 19 Cotton Tree Drive, Central.

Before the 19th century, Hong Kong residents spoke six or seven indigenous languages, among which Wai Tau and Hakka were the most spoken dialects. The language cultures of these residents were different from those of the Cantonese immigrants who came to Hong Kong after the mid-19th century. With influences of economic development, urbanization, integration and other factors, the indigenous languages in Hong Kong have rapidly declined and are now critically endangered. This lecture will give a brief introduction to Wai Tau and Hakka as well as the folk songs of these dialects. Speaker: Professor Lau Chun-fat (Vice Chairman of the Association for Conservation of Hong Kong Indigenous Languages)Dr. Stephen Cheung (Vice Chairman of the Association for Conservation of Hong Kong Indigenous Languages) Language: Conducted in Cantonese
Since the 16th century, people have gradually invented marvelous automatons following the anatomy of the human body. During the Industrial Revolution, people began to use machines to replace human hands to perform repeated actions, which laid the foundation for developing ROBOTS. With advances in science and technology, ROBOTS that imitate human actions have been developed over the centuries. In addition to being used in industrial production, they have played an important role in science fiction. In recent years, ROBOTS have become more human. They can walk on two legs, jump, and even do a somersault. They can express emotions with facial expressions and look around with eye cameras to capture their surrounding environment. The latest development involves using artificial intelligence with ROBOTS, allowing them to think, react and learn like humans. The “ROBOTS” exhibition explores the 500-year story of humanoid ROBOTS and the artistic and scientific quest to understand what it means to be human. Set in five different periods, the exhibition uncovers how ROBOTS and society have been shaped by our understanding of the universe, the Industrial Revolution, 20th century popular culture, and our dreams of the future. This intriguing exhibition features a unique collection of over 100 ROBOTS, from the earliest automatons to ROBOTS from science fiction and modern-day research labs. Through this incredible journey, visitors can see the latest humanoid ROBOTS in action and explore how, and more importantly why engineers are building ROBOTS that resemble us and interact in human-like ways.
