海外過新年

第一年在外地過新年,不是去左旅行那隻,更清楚自己根本就係無節日感既C9.

撞正做了「本地移民」,新居趕及在新年前入伙,執屋清潔也已經無左半條命⋯⋯還那有心情想過年?!

行街時看到華人,難道會說Kung Hei Fat Choy? 茶樓反而都特別多人,但以往常聽到既祝賀說話也真的聽不見了。畢竟,這是西洋地方吧!

初二又這樣過去了,對我來說,新年已經結束。望住新聞既花市和夜市,想起初二回家和父母吃飯,才是我最懷念的。

補充: FB live 望住維港煙花,oh no, 大霧成咁, 大吉利是! 

夏日寒風

從前8號風球才會聽到既鬼叫風聲,響呢度都聽得幾多。只係除了冬天,想不到連夏天都會出現!

就係人生,誰能知明天發生什麼?

呢度既天氣報告係無「風球」,而會出壞天氣警告,提示大家好好照顧自己。上次去的那個沙灘,明明風平浪靜!但今早去時,風速已經有67km/hour, 逗留一陣已吹到頭痛;到晚上,大雨之餘還要加上狂風,去到80幾km/hour!地區停電,水浸係好平常既事,希望無人命既損失吧!

今年既天氣都幾奇怪!呢個長假每日既氣溫都係16-24度之間,厚褸已經穿不到,但短袖衫都還未可以,怕易著涼!結果長袖衫仍是我的「制服」,和本地人既夏日look完全相反!

無法吧!

 

 

時光機

住上半年有多,今天終於到了山下既博物館參觀。

呢個細細既地方,介紹了Devonport本區既歷史,也包含了些少紐西蘭既殖民統治史。和鄉下好相似,呢度1840,早我地兩年割讓左俾英國既。以後既發展當然好不一樣,而原居民既不公待遇也一直引起好大既問題。下個月6號係National Day, 新任總理Bill English竟然不想出席紀念活動?! 當中既深層次矛盾,真係以後有時間睇書或者先可以搵到答案了。

博物館收藏了好多「文物」,嘗試呈現番舊日既生活風貌。其中我地見到一部手動打字機!和工作人員傾左一陣,也令我走回自己既時光機。

小學五年級時因數學成績不好,主動要求去補習!早上既補習往往無所事事,阿sir有次就借左部打字機我玩,結果就開始了想學打字既念頭。好有心機專登去了書局買左本打字書,自學一番!之後每天在補習社,別的小朋友去了打機,我就在練習打字。這些舊式既打字機,嘈之餘,每打一隻字都要好用力,改錯也麻煩的,所以更要求準確。

和小朋友講番自己呢段往事,她也似明非明。畢竟,呢款打字機已經不在現實中出現了,本書也早已丟了!

一切只能留在回憶裡吧!

Do you live in _____ ?

Next time when someone ask me “Do you live in ____ ?”, I should have replied with a sense of humor, like, “Yes, so can I have more discount?”.

I was not prepared to say anything yesterday in a souvenir shop at the zoo. In the past 6 months some people here have demonstrated to me what discrimination means. This experience just showed me why the retail market is so poor and unattractive. Coz the staff are not professional and not equipped to treat customers, no matter where they come from, with a proper manner.

Somehow online shop customer service can do much better job, what a shame!

In my hometown, sales people will vent their discontent to the locals instead, and never to tourists, whom they treat as V.I.P.

A new year has come now. I know i must embrace everything with more sense of humor.
