My Office Playlist: All Summer Holiday

Track #4: All Summer Holiday (全身暑假) by Joey Yung 

While working from home, everyday at around 3 pm, I will hear the sound of kids playing loudly at the playground nearby. The playtime always ends with the kids getting yelled at by their father for being too noisy or for creating a mess. I still can't get used to hearing these summer holiday scenes, with Hong Kong schools’ summer holidays pushed forward to March while the city struggles against its fifth and worst wave of Covid-19. Their racket reminds me of Joey Yung’s “All Summer Holiday”: “Run toward the early summer / paint this canvas with vibrant water colors.”

Curated by an ArtAsiaPacific designer, “My Office Playlist” is a showcase of music that illustrates a spectrum of moods at the office and during commuting hours.
