Seroiusly, I'm a coward.

I realised that I am a complete coward – less than 2 feet away, my cowardness outweighed my courage, which was already non-existent, and left me in such a sloppy ground now. I would say, it was a very big blunder, an extremely embarassing one, and shameful.

In the foreseeable future, I do not think I will be able to come any closer to a position than the one I am in now.

It was indeed a day with a series of unfortunate events to me, very very unfortunate.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Thank you for spending a night with me, not only watched a very decent Johnny Depp movie, but also taught me the little things…(I can only remember 3 things: sweater, tempo, umbrella and? remind me…)

Don't worry too much about your future, just, be optimistic and fight!

Thank you Minnie.

An enjoyable night, with sweety you

Finally, I can meet you before I head back to England. Though you were a bit late, I can grant you extra patience for that, for having dinner with you is a great event to me. Your lateness are completely forgivable…

A sweet voice, a sweet face and a sweet character. You are simply a sweet person, believe me or not.
Shall I have diabetus because of your sweetness, I have no regrets.

All the best to you.

Goodbye, grand–father!

The last ten days were absolutely unforgettable – watching somebody dying is tough and difficult, especially if he is a relative of yours.

I was of course deeply saddened with my grandad's death, although there was no tears in my eyes. He was the one who loved me deepest besides my parents, and I could feel it from his never-been-happier smiles each time I saw him. I understand he had been struggling to wait for me to return from England, perhaps I was one of those whom he wanted to see before he left, before he bravely walked through the last part of his eighty-two-year-long journey after suffering from severe sicknesses.

May you rest in peace. When you meet great-grandad, tell him you have had a proudly-lived life.

把孩子送出去 – 陶傑

I have no intention to use Mr Tsao's passage for any commercial purpose, but for personal use only. If in any way have I breached the Law of Hong Kong, I will be pleased to delete this entry permanently and apologise to anyone who is concerned.

香港家長把小孩送去英國讀書,自從所謂「回歸」之後,增加了八成。

都不甘心讓下一代受特區的白老鼠中國式教育。今天用「母語」授課,明天要學基本法,今天要在操場強制看升五星旗,明天說不定也要學習三個代表論。眼見在五星旗下宣誓的董班子高官,他們自己的孩子也一個個往英國美國送,一個明智的家長,如果能負擔,為了子女的終身幸福,都會選擇。

但是把小孩送出去,家長自己也要有心理準備。如果貴子弟在英國讀得成書,他將來回港探親,會對父母的一些行為小動作先看不過眼:父親講話的聲浪太大,母親太過愛嚼舌頭說是非,家中客廳掛的那個八卦鏡,他會覺得很醜陋,堅持要扔掉,還有,對於一家大小唱卡拉OK,他會謝絕參加。

到時候,身為家長,千萬不要覺得兒子變了—他已經「忘本」,他與父母很難溝
通,送他去英國這三年,他發生了甚麼事,為甚麼回來後連蝦餃燒賣也不喜歡,天天吃生菜番茄三文治,他就覺得很滿足。

眼前這個兒子,長得比自己還高了一個頭,你不認得他了。如果有那麼大的代溝,那麼恭喜你,你的兒子真的變了,但是,Come on,這就是送他去外國讀書的宗旨。

如果他暑假回港,經過在英國寄宿學校的三年,還一天到晚找他的舊同學逛旺角商場、Call朋友夜夜蒲D、追看八卦周刊、對藝人明星的私生活瞭如指掌,回到珠江三角洲,對遍地的海鮮酒家、桑拿浴室和酒廊一點也不感到厭惡,反而如魚得水地充滿歸屬感,那麼你付他那麼貴的學費,去英國讀書,一切都是白費,有個屁用?

他增長了見聞,回來之後看一切都不同。在思維和行為方面,他拒絕跟父母一樣的見識,他的生活方式已經不再那麼Chinese。對於中國問題、董建華現象、七一大遊行,他事事跟你頂撞辯論,身為家長,不要對他動氣,應該熱淚盈眶地感謝天主:他「忘本」了,這是好事,他讀書也成功了。

把孩子及早送出去,或許有一天你會失去了他。但其實是他走出了中國的陰影,真正擁抱了世界,他得到了新生。

不想讓子女留在香港讀大學,還是前殖民宗主國的教育制度好?仔細地想一想:這是一個重大的抉擇。雖然,其實最終你沒有失去他,是他與國際接了軌,但到頭來這一份失落,或許令老來的家長很難承受。雖然,他真正走出去了,他已經脫胎換骨,在人生路上不再回頭,他還會在心底裏呼喚:親愛的爸爸媽媽,當年你們把我送去英國,是救了我,謝謝你們。

I would like to devote my sincere thank to my parents, for their love.

Beautiful is the word

Beautiful is the word, not only for you, but also for tonight, however nasty the weather was.

I have been very lazy meeting my old friends since I have been back, and now I know about it. I will be brave and enthusiatic about things I care for, instead of doing the unrealistic dreaming.

Be reminded that you have been and, certainly, will always be one of my best friends. All the best, to both of us.
