The exchange programme that I participated in Budapest, Hungary was a great experience to spiritually and emotionally renew myself. Except for times that I really missed the food from home[Hong Kong], I adapted to the lifestyle so much. I feel better when the perspective on life is changed. This work results from numerous experiments on scent production by adopting the ethanol method in 5 months. I integrated produced scents and the installation itself to create an imagination of what I missed the most about Hong Kong when I was abroad, and an imagination of my significant memories of Budapest when I am back to Hong Kong, I wish the abstract idea could be expressed through this artistic creation.
