"I also know that knowing or experiencing nature is by personal practice and opening up the senses, and knowing second-hand nature through literary imagination. When writing the preface for "Butterfly Dao", Liu Kexiang reminded readers profoundly, "If it is purely a study I’m afraid it’s hard to really go deep in the literary travels in the middle of the world, to understand the true meaning of the dialogue between natural writing and life.” (page 26) I prefer trees. If I go out of nature, I will start with a good understanding of trees and plants. "
"Besides, I do know that learning about nature through literature is second-hand experience. One can only learn and experience nature through one's senses and physical encounter. In the preface of The Dao of Butterflies, Liu Ka-Shiang reminded the readers earnestly that it is difficult, if not impossible, to fully comprehend the profound meanings of the dialogue with lives in nature writing by taking only a spiritual journey in literature at one's study room. (The Dao of Butterflies, p.26). Therefore, as a person who likes trees, I would start learning about trees and plants if I were to begin my nature expeditions."

" Tai Sang Wai, located near to Mai Po Wetland in Yuen Long, is protected by The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance to retain the scenery of the fishponds. Together with its historical context and the efforts of villagers and Hong Kong Bird Watching Society , this precious ecological paradise, a neighbourhood where the villagers live alongside with fishes, birds, insects and fruit in harmony, is preserved. The characters tai sang (to live together) and wai (to embrace) also seem like an analogy to Hong Kong , where everyone strives for a place they can live in with liberty. "
