結婚廣告牌

在報章刊登結婚啟事相信你們很多人都有經驗 (嘿, 我沒有), 但是把結婚的 notice 弄成整幾十呎甚至整百呎高的牌子放在大街上的經驗相信不是每個人都有.

這是在香港的南Y島, 漁村的淳樸風氣在那 ‘家華世姪’ 幾個字上表露無遺. 但這還是漁村的, 不算奇怪. 但在市區的我也看到, 可惜當時在巴士上, 來不及拍.

香港就是這麼一個現代與傳統混合的地方.

我倒想起了以前電影院的劇照.

第一次看如此"醒目"的贺喜广告牌.有时间
要安排到外面走走,不要老了走不动才後悔.

另,以前待在中国东北时,当地人的结婚喜酒在中午,是娶正妻(大婆),晚上请的喜酒是娶小妾.
有听说过吗?

好恐怖的结婚通告牌,幸好这里没有流行....

Foo: I have been condidering that but must wait for opportunity to pop up, not to mention the current economic situation. And yes, I do like that place, it has freedom and good Chinese food. Why do you ask?

Tat: no la, still in the ang-moh land.

晨靈: 倒沒聽說過, 看來還是做小的合算.

Alice: 幸虧白事沒有如此的廣告牌

夫人: 以後妳嫁女兒時試試看....

比较喜欢英国的乡村田园生活,香港给人一种紧张的压迫感。

I am considering the same. HK is closer to family, has good food and entertainment and is coming close to the UK on the political, social and economic standards. Maybe offers more career prospects to people like us. But it's also over-crowded and fast-paced... quite a change from what we are enjoying in the UK. Not so much of a problem to us (we have passed tougher tests in Malaysia), but to the young ones (schooling/childhood in HK can be a nightmare...)

Hard choices, really.

康華: 看你怎麼看, 有時節奏太慢了你就會靜極思動. 但主要還是看事業, 如果有份自己喜歡的工作, 待遇又夠好, 就會考慮 (大馬除外, 再多錢也不考慮). 現在多了一樣憂慮, 需找個適合女兒成長的地方.

Foo: Yes, you have to give and take. Going HK means no more peaceful and quiet life in the UK. However, HK educational system is one of the best in the world—where else can you find a place where the kids study Chinese history yet with good command in English? Furthermore, you as an academician would find it easier to get a job in HK universities, and they pay well, while me in commercial field would find it tougher to get a job at this point of time.
Actually the worst thing about HK is not the pace, is the shortage of individual space. If you ask me what is the best place on earth for kids to grow up, I would say Australia, and I love that place, but finding a job there now is tough, and the pace is even slower than the UK. haha .

I like this! wow~

安哥爵 said...

很有喜感和特色.

老颜 said...

老实说,做得非常漂亮!

‘HK educational system is one of the best in the world’— true but also one of the toughest, if not THE toughest. When I was in Form 6, people said STPM was the world's second hardest exam -- only behind HK public exam. STPM is a nightmare to me so why should I give my child a bigger nightmare?

詩婷, 安哥爵, 老顏: 從藝術的眼光來看, 是很漂亮的, 它有着一種淳樸的艷麗, 不修飾, 土味十足卻又特別

Foo: Don’t worry so much la…...the kids would know how to deal with it, we find STPM tough because it was in Bahasa, and secondly the expectation to score high depressed us—as we were in an unfair competition. A level in other countries are different, you don’t have to score all As
