Two of my interviewees named Daniel, one actually has the same name with Daniel Ng. ==”

[Daniel: Hi I am Daniel, your tour guide. Glad to meet all of you…]
    As a tour guide of an exhibition in completely dark, Daniel’s job is to lead visitors to experience what it feels to be blind.
    He began to lose his sight two years ago and became almost completely blind in three months because of brain tumor.
[Daniel: Brain tumor, which hurt my nerve…If you wave….]
    Brain tumor destroyed his sight for 95%
    Tour guide is Daniel’s first job after he gradually lost his vision. He used to be an area manager of cellphone outlet in Hong Kong. After his vision loss, Daniel lost his job and barely can find an opportunity to work. Before he joined the exhibition, all he had is sorrow in the darkness.
[Daniel: I think in oriental region, it is hard for blind people to find a job. Not all of , but many of employers set up their minds to assume you can not do anything without your vision. Their mind is very hard to ‘break’.]
    As got visually impairment late in his life other than genetic, Daniel himself also thought it is impossible to live a life in darkness at first.
[Daniel: How can I walk in the street with a stick? Will people help me?(street sound)]
[Daniel: First I don’t understand, than I assume this is impossible. This is the fault people who have never tried how it feels to be in a totally dark world. Actually, there are skills and facilities to help blind people out.]
    What Daniel could do now, is to cross finger and hope for the future, one day that bio/chemical medicine could give his bright life back.
