活在中國以外

活在中國以外 by Stanley Wong (MSc IT for Manufacture) 最近,我看過一輯關於姚明的專訪。平平無奇的訪問內容對我來說沒什麼關係,但這輯訪問卻給我帶來了一點的震撼! 這陣子,我一直在尋找在英國或澳洲的工作及定居的機會,為了要在一些有「生活」的地方過活。在那個專訪中,一個在美國長大的中國女子用流利的英語一句一句的訪問著姚明,姚明以普通話回應著。 本來,這個是沒什麼特別。震撼的來源是來自他們身旁的一個美國人 – 女生跟姚明的翻譯員。鏡頭前的訪問員跟被訪者都是中國人,到底是什麼原因,要一個美國人來幹翻譯的工作?當時,我的腦海中突然浮現起在華威的一些生活片段 – 一位來自上海的朋友跟我說:「跟中國人(某些香港人)說英語真是不爽呀!」另一位北京人的話:為什麼香港人大多不懂說,也聽不懂普通話? 要是我真的能夠到外國定居,我的孩子會不會要跟中國人用英語溝通呢?

看雲的心情

看雲的心情 by Nancy Chui 崔亮欣  (BSc Industrial Economics) 雲卷雲舒,雲聚雲散, 我看雲時,雲是否也在看我?拍一張照片,寫一段心情, 在我看雲的歲月裡, 雲也見證着我的故事。 香港 (2007) 童年躺在大草地,瞇着眼看天,果然如書上寫的: “藍的天,白的雲,藍天白雲真美麗。”讓豐富的想像力替每朵雲取個名字: 是小豬還是雪人? 像叮噹的豆沙包還是ET的飛船? 雲上又是否真有天空之城? “爸媽,可以帶我乘摩天輪上去瞧清楚嗎?” 英國 (2006) 想飛視綫跟着飛機上天際,直到它消失於雲端。 想替夢插上翅膀,隨雲飛往比天空更遥遠的地方,那裡有我的烏托邦。 日本福岡(2005) 心曲愛在田野看秋天的日落,漫天霞暉,與心弦和唱,譜奏一闕温柔的彩雲曲。 霞幕徐徐而下,美景雖留不住,但能在心裡記下一頁絢燦,一份震撼,已足够。 英國 (2006) 喚風這刻,我想起了你。讓雲載满我的思念,喚一陣風,把雲送到你那方… 你説,今天下雨了。你感受到嗎?那霏霏雨粉正是我送你的满满祝福。 澳門 (2005) 静思在飛機看窗外的大片雲海,心是如此的平靜,幾近透明,没有牽掛,没有煩憂。呼吸輕了,時間也彷彿慢了。 雲的另外一端便是家吧。微笑着,静待着到達的廣播。回家的感覺真好。 (2006)
