Mark & Spencer TV ads

2007 Winter


2006 Winter


When I watched the 2007 series for the first time, I like the 50's setting that the story happened. Especially the girls sitting on the stool for the clothes desmonstration, and girl in the middle(hey, she is the daughter of Rolling Stone Rock Star, Mick Jagger and once-supermodel, Jerry Hall)waves her hand, it's kinda cute, isn't it? This scene reminds me of the movie that starred by Marilyn Monroe, How to marry a millionaire. It was nice and sweet.

This advertisement is shown like a usual TV-commercial in HK, it is a short version. The complete version will have Antonio Banderas as the 大茄, futhermore, Twiggy and Erin in the ad too, I think it is more than a typical one.

But the most funny and skeptical wordings in the ad is:

the story of FIVE girls who ALL WANT the same thing for Christmas...

CLOTHES!
CLOTHES!
CLOTHES!


Mm, even the glamourous girls liked they are looking for nice clothes! Gosh...

I would pick more daisies too!

I am 120% agree with seewhy's post at her blog.

Can we just NOT take things too seriously?

When someone is getting more serious, I cannot help but really want to tease him or her...I don't really mean it, but straight face make me nervous. "You cannot make a mistake" seems burnt on their faces. Oh, leave me alone...I am not gonna mess things up, don't worry!

I think you are right, that attitude determines our lives. I wanted to live with a fun and happy manner. Hey, I laugh doesn't make me to become a joke. I laugh does not necessarily mean I am not serious.

I don't want to explain myself, I hate this. It makes things worse if you are asked to explain yourself in the first place, I'd rather shut up and leave people to have their judgement. It is their business of how they seeing things.

Hey! I would pick more daisies, same here! hey, I have no daisy icon, I pick whatever I can! haha

Disconnect! not only with internet...

Damn! What has happened? Server in our office was unable to connect to internet this morning, I was bored! I am glad I am able to post anything through internet now.

The technical people are still trying to retrieve the server, I supposed, but nothing seems to be helpful. It is not unusuak for these technical defection.

I was so reluctant to go to work this morning. I didn't put pn any makeup, did not prepare a pair of nice clothes and therefore I am able to go to work early in the morning. It is not because I want to go to work but it seems that I have no choice and I dont want to think how much I did not want to go to work.

Not to think, the best solution is to stick to routine and so here I am! 8:42am showed up in office.

X'mas 2007

Hi all,

2007 X'mas has just over, what have you done in these few days? I didn't do anything, it seems like too few for doing anything fun and interesting except sleep.

I feel like working in factory...like a prisoner...when I think of work tomorrow, I jsut can't get rid of that feeling, it is horrible. Things are not running smooth at work, It seems to have changed in one day. It is troublesome enough and now in addition to the small stuff, it bugs me! I hate bugs.

I went to church at X'mas Eve for midnight mass. We used to go to TST Rosary Church but there are always tooooo many people and I needed to be somewhere else so we went to the one near my home finally. It's nice, the speech that father gave that night was also interesting and humorous enough to amuse lots of people.

Apart from that, I spent most of the time in front of TV for movies after movies, I have watched 3, one is Dark is rising, sthg like that, not v popular Holywood one but something similar to adventure and imaginative movie, the other two are Take the Lead and Charlie Angels! Ooh, one more, Fight Club. I like watching movies, maybe just liked 王佳芝, you forget everythings that bother you in fornt of the big screen. There are only stories and the stories that you love, you world is only full these suddenly. No worries, no sadness and disappointments.

Today I went to MK to buy a nice underwear for the banquet coming Friday. I am still have not decided what dress I should wear that night. I like wearing nice dress, however, we need to take the cab in the middle of traffic from CWB then all the way to Aberdeen, seem too far away, isn't it?The point is, we don't drive! Who cares if me and my fds drive!

After the rush shopping, I head back to home to meet family for the 工展會 tonight. I supposed we are just only window shopping, but we have spent a few hundred dollars at the end. We all happy with what we get, 滿載而歸. We have bought a food processor that able to make soya drink, juice. It can also help to mince the meat, crash the hard stuff such as 田七 into powder...It is very attractive! Then we have got other food such as olive oil, olive oil soap, soy sauce, chinese soup packs...mainly are daily commodities. I seldom do that in the past time, I mean I don't go to 工展會、美食展, I will never queue for food try,..now, I do ALL of these. I have an idea that I should do everything before I die, I supposed I am getting old...OMG

Some thoughts...

Be Mindful During Meditation

Give your mind a rest.
Please give your cell phone a rest, as well.
When you leave early,
Others' attention leaves with you.
Please stay until the bell invites you to leave.
When you walk, take one step with each breathe.
Nor more, no less.
Don't rush...there is no place you are trying to get to.
However, when others must stand still behind you, they are not walking.
Moving to make yourself comfortable,
Can make others uncomfortable.
Please try to move mindfully only when necessary.
Be friends with your cough and bring it a treat.
If it does not want to leave, take your cough for a walk.
If you want to return, wait for a bell to invite you back.


The Dharma Discussion

If you are asked for advice, give only what is yours to give...
your own practice.
When you share, share with the sangha
and not just one member.
If you ask for advice,
Do not expect to receive it.
If you have a question about the practice,
Perhaps it is better answered after the Dharma discussion
Encourage the question to become part of the discussion;
Not the answer.
Does your sharing invite others to share,
Or does it serve to silence others?


Encourage the question to become part of the discussion;
......Does your sharing invite others to share,
Or does it serve to silence others?


問題,是否只有一個答案﹖

我們能夠容讓問題變成討論的一部分嗎﹖

我們有足夠智慧嗎﹖

然後,又有足夠胸襟嗎﹖

再來是,我們有足夠膽量嗎﹖

容讓別人帶領,到一些你不熟識的地方,看一些從不看過的事情,聽一些未聽過的說話。

不只是點點頭的回應,而是一份簡單的信任。

我們可以因為一件事情相信人,也可以因為一件事情而破壞信任。

始終,信不信,由你。

記得小時候相信這個世界是美好的,人,是善良的。

甚麼時候「天真」變成了負面詞語﹖ 變成了一個空洞的笑容﹖

連「信任」也輕易消失了。

或者,當我們只懂為答案抓破頭皮,為了沒有答案而恐懼

不再問問題的時候,我們就變得蠢了。

人們一思考,上帝就發笑。-----古老的希伯來格言

McFly



I accidentally found a brit band called McFly which is extremely popular in UK now. Their music is really pop and catchy and the most amazing thing is they SING341 very very well. The music they play at home with acoustic guitars are much much better than they have in MVs, you can watch them at official website.  It sounds more natural and friendly. Their music is liked Beatles as well.


I always have no idea of how actresses fall in love with directors, singers going out with producers and roadies... I have got the answer for cinema people when I was in university, and I realize the special chemistry of the musicians from the boys when I was watching the video.

It's nice and warm to have a few frds but are very close, gather at someone's house doing something that really love, jamming music is always the best and wonderful. Details of McFly, please click here.



I read NME when was checking through the details of McFly. Does anyone know what is it? 410 It is an UK magazine about the brtipop scenes and new music. Its paper is liked newspaper, kinda differerent from other pop magazines. It is different from US Smash-hits. It has more comments and materials of the UK alternative music scenes. Alongside with NME, there is another one which is also reproting similar things, unfortuantely I forgot the name. It seems no longer available in the market anyway. I was a regualr reader of it also with The Face, i-D as well. After all these years, the Face is no longer exist, and i-D seems not that edgy anymore as more and more magazine coming up.


I was a magazine-manics as I really love reading magazines very much. From entertainments such as US Weekly, People (US gossips), Hello! (UK gossips, sometimes Australian as well!) to woman magazines, such as Vogue (both UK and US versions,  Italien and Paris are just too expensive to afford), ELLE, Cosmospolitian (not HK ones), Harper's Bazaar (US), Harpers and Queen, Glamour, Seventeen (sometimes). Apart from these, I read Wallpaper, IDN as well, though not a regular reader. I also read surfing and skateboarding magazines too. Crazy...gosh! Oh, another one pops into my mind, TIME magazines, Psychology Today,...for a more rational mind. Don't read Newsweek, it is just too US, the opinions are too stupid, not good at all, TIME has the same problem now unfortunately.


Too much to share, too little time, gotta back to work. Cheers

多事之秋

呢期公司多事之秋。


同事逐個逐個輪流病,有人好日都唔病,無啦啦腸胃炎要睇醫生,見佢面都青曬399!有人甩左胶,上個月甩手胶,今個月甩腳胶......返工都要靠拐杖,聽講月尾仲要去旅行......前排唔知點解公司突然拜神421,返到去有人請食燒豬......哇~~呢d係咪就係果d所謂dots呢﹖


尋日坐船返工,去到北角碼頭,船差不多泊岸,我仲發緊夢,聽緊收音機,突然沉靜既船艙被一把響亮的男人聲驚醒﹕「有人跳海呀!」果時我都仲未清醒過來,反應就好似聽到有人同你講「唔該借歪」一樣,完全冇反應!然後再聽到人好緊張咁大叫「有人跳海呀!」,那時先稍稍清醒過來,我望望碼頭上的水手,他們的臉全都向這艘船望過來,神情凝重的。聲音是從船尾傳過來的,當時係抱著八掛既心情衝去船尾望,其他乘客亦一樣,湧去船尾,倚著欄杆觀望。


有一個穿黃色冷衫既阿伯係海中載浮載沉,有人不斷叫「有人跳海呀!」大家係船上遠遠觀望果位阿伯,好似睇電視咁。有個阿叔係隔離淡定地倚在欄杆旁「指揮」大局﹕「d水手去x左邊呀!救人啦!x! x事呀!x,阿伯識游水架啵!」船上既人都好緊張,包括我。突然之間自覺要做返d去幫人,因為我唔識游水,又唔識得救人,我問個阿叔﹕「駛唔駛報警呀﹖」阿叔話﹕「唔駛啦!佢識得游水喎!」於是我又再觀察多陣。阿叔又講野﹕「x!水手係度做x野呀﹖救人呀!」水手真係好猶豫,我個心都開始焦急起來,我見到阿伯兩手係水面蛙式咁爬左陣,後來有人拋個水泡落去,佢都冇理會。冇耐就有水手跳去救佢喇!446


我即刻報警452,將個情況一五一十準確報告。佢拖住佢拎住個水泡,慢慢游返埋岸,好在水面尚算平靜,後來有架大船慢慢駛埋黎一齊幫手。阿伯終於救返上黎。船亦慢慢泊岸,差人同消防輪流打畀我,要我locate個位置,又叫我講返當時發生情況。落船既時候已經見到消防員係碼頭準備,又見到幾架消防車450,又有人救護車451standby,個心安落左,祈禱希望佢冇事。跟手仲見到個拎住長鏡頭既男人衝入去。附近有架「太陽」車。


記得水手係船上救人時,好多4、50歲既麻甩佬一人一手機咁係度拍低成個過程。阿伯四肢無力灘係船上面,隔離有幾個水手陪住佢,果咋阿叔又近距離又遠距離咁拎住架手機影個阿伯,唔知點解,覺得佢地好克人憎。覺得佢地好廢、好幼稚。係咪影完拎去電視台會有錢收﹖而家人命悠關,生死大事歷歷在目,不過可能針唔吉到肉......好似好冇人性。我覺得好恐怖。


好彩,阿伯最後冇事!


患嚴重糖尿 妻責:係咪想死快闕
偷吃麵包捱罵老翁蹈海
http://the-sun.on.cc/channels/news/20071213/
13/12/2007【本報訊】為吃一塊麵包,老翁嬲到跳海!患嚴重糖尿病老翁,由於要節制飲食,他違禁吃了一塊麵包,竟被家人發覺罵了幾句,老翁為此事甚為谷氣,昨午在北角海面從渡海小輪蹈海,幸獲見義勇為水手救起,不致枉死。

七十八歲姓陳老翁,與家人同住藍田康華苑宏康閣。陳患有嚴重糖尿病,飲食需受規限,但陳頗為饞嘴常偷吃零食,家人多次勸喻戒口。昨日陳又偷吃麵包,被妻子發現喝止:「你有糖尿病仲食麵包,係咪想死得快闕呀?」陳聽後甚為不滿。


渡輪水手撲海救一命
昨午一時許,陳由菲傭陪同離家,由九龍城乘搭渡海小輪往北角,當小輪駛至距北角碼頭約四公尺時,陳突然從左邊船身跳海,菲傭及其他乘客見狀,大聲呼救,姓黎水手(四十九歲)向乘客問道:「有無人學過拯溺呀?」但見乘客無反應,他即時將水泡及救生衣掟落海,再落海救人,將陳拖近船邊由其他水手協助救上船。當時一名姓文休班消防員亦在船上,但因較早前手部受傷,未能落海施援,但仍協助急救陳伯,協助陳嘔出海水,陳其後由救護車送院檢驗,情況穩定。


姓黎水手於一九九八年加入船公司,早年以捕魚維生,深諳泳術,但沒有學過拯溺,以前亦曾救過墮海人士,對於再次救人感到興奮。

In Her Shoes


Do you have a sister? I am not sure if those who have sister may share the same connection as te movie does, I don;t have a sister, however, I was "grown up" in girl school since 6 until 18, I think I should know the bonds, the struggles, the jealousy, the boundaries and all that girlie's stuff what the movie talks about.

It is a movie about two sisters who lost their mother when they were very young...OK, I better save your time by clicking here if you want o know the whole story.

I think it is a beautiful story because you can see two persons grwoth. To see someone's growth is one of the most beautiful thing in this world. To see someone become her/himself is one of the most touching moments too. And the most beautiful thing in the story is, though the differences tore them apart, they stay together, Because they carry each other in the heart.


There are two poems in the movie, I love both. Unfortuantely I can only find the first one,

One Art    
by Elizabeth Bishop


The art of losing isn't hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.


Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.


Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.


I lost my mother's watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn't hard to master.


I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn't a disaster.


--Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan't have lied.  It's evident
the art of losing's not too hard to master


though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.


Loss, is a traumatic feeling and experience, trust me, I know the feeling. To accept the loss is never easy. But we are losing something, sometime, day by day, moment by moment. To accept your loss and therefore long for another new thing. This is hope. Hope can be found in love.



套戲除左Diaz之外,仲有另一位相當出色既演員,唔知大家佢有冇印象﹖


Toni Collette 雖然唔係勁大靚女,但好多戲佢有份參與。亦係因為咁,所以唔少戲雖有份參與,但一定唔會係主角,甚至可以話係出色既葉22。近期既戲係Evening,佢扮演一個憤怒妹妹,成個頭染到紅曬咁,同埋一個半頹廢既男友陪件就黎終老既好媽媽身旁。仲有之前一套Little Miss Sunshine, 就係一個好supportive,但係typical既美國媽媽,另外最有印象既就係About A Boy裏面果個巔巔地,情緒成日失控既阿媽......睇佢d戲愈多,就愈覺得佢好~~~勁。佢可以話係扮乜似乜,係Evening同LMS入面,你以為佢係美國人,但係aab入面,你更加唔會懷疑佢其實唔係英國人。睇返佢既profile,估唔到原來連sixth sense佢都有份,可惜我真係冇印象。

點解我對呢個人咁深刻呢﹖其實我都唔係好記得,第一次認識佢既電影就係呢套Muriel's Wedding. 入面講佢係一個肥婆,最後嫁得出,大約係咁。但係戲入面佢扮肥婆既冇自信、失魂、心地善良、天真同最後嫁得出果種由個心度笑出黎,當全世界既人係死既果種喜,可以話係發揮得淋漓盡致!就好似爽浪香口膠果個廣告入面,個新娘bark左粒鈕出黎後大叫「我願意!」咁興奮!


咁點解我又會睇呢套戲呢﹖我真係唔係好記得,大約係果時以為佢係另一個演員,好想睇佢,點知借左返黎之後發現原來係另一個人。但原本想睇果個演只係邊個呢﹖我而家又唔記得了。

噢,想講一聲,其實佢係澳洲人,原來,佢仲係唱歌添架......

開門喇喂!

今早特意早點回來,小老細係度gui門,原來係開唔到密碼鎖。佢堅持要開門,即係尤得我企係度,佢自己企係度堅持開門,佢最鍾意人地按照佢既方式做野,連開門都係,都係按佢自己方法,所以佢冇叫我幫手。我企佢隔離一陣,佢冇講我就食早餐了。

後來call人幫手,同事們各不知情,最後要返既都返到曬,大家好似賓賓咁搵野墊住坐係地下。再加條banner就似追討欠薪。

鎖佬終於來了,3分鐘,佢只係用左咁多既時間做左以下既野。我們由0900靜坐到0945大團圓結局,大家庭外和解。

UPDATE

繼尋日既post,想再補充一下,係咪男人就係咁﹖未結婚前就如珠如寶,當你女神一樣,結左婚之後就當你係草,只不過套戲將男士既腦海既印象「影象化」左出黎,畀你睇到佢地心目中既醜女是何等模樣!

尋日睇亞視有套戲集講蘇乞衣。其中有場係他個阿媽同個靚到天仙咁既女講﹕「一個鍾意你外在美既男人同埋鍾意你內在美既男人,你會揀邊個丫﹖外表係會變得......(下刪千字)」今時今日仲有劇集係度講緊呢d廢話。內在美誠然重要,內在美可以彌補外在美既不足,更加係令到一個外表ok既人更美。但係今日呢個講錢唔講心,笑貧不笑娼既社會,同人講「外在美唔重要」係荒謬的!荒謬,係因為冇人信;荒謬,係因為你相信呢個係「真理」既話,你會成為別人笑話;荒謬係你相信真善美,但人地會因為咁而hurt你。


近日冇乜心機,迫在眉睫,仍然可以愛理不理......damn!

前兩日睇完套爛片之後同同事們到瓊華商場的笑笑-wara wara吃晚餐。之前到了Langham Place逛逛,d人狂影燈飾,......點知今日就見到有人跳樓了, OMG...

是次題為白色聖誕,所有野都是白色的,白貓頭鷹、白兔、白熊、白屋、白鹿、白花、白樹......中間仲有一道白色小橋,大家都好高興係度影相。不過,我投入唔到......有好影﹖D野假既﹖又唔凍,用手機影完又唔靚,套戲又悶,聽日又冇假放,影影影有好影﹖靚﹖一個人心情唔好,真係影響好大呀!405

正如選擇係商場輕生既人一樣,個商場布置得咁開心,你走去跳樓破壞佢﹖D野咁靚,你捨得就咁跳落黎整爛佢﹖唔知道,只知道好多野係一念之差。D野咁靚,有人可以拍照留念,有人可以......。聖誕節就到喇,除左搏命商場購物﹕「D野好~~~~靚呀~~」之外,仲有意義﹖


 跟住我地就去左WARAWARA。

271左起﹕炸芝士,吞拿魚刺身,三文魚特色卷A,三文魚特色卷B (個醬唔同架!睇真D呀!)
271左起﹕牛肉鍋,...忘了...,這兩杯...都忘了,不過聽說很好味218,這個杏酒真的不錯。不過有人說難飲!哈哈,我聽到的391

你睇下我幾無聊!食乜都要同人一五一十咁講......403 


The other day I went to Harbour City with G 255

There is a small village built in the shopping centre, like a northern small Europe town 22


After reading all these, you know how I spent my time in office :D

唔好話我老姑婆!

I have watched the movie "The heardbreak Kid" last night, It was such a crap!427 Though there is a saying in Cantonese, "橋唔怕舊,最緊要受",however, it is not successful in his new movie. It is the same old joke which many men found interesting way back to 1998, when people thought Ben Stiller is a comedy geninus, and Diaz was the hottest girl in the world, There's something about Mary.

156 仲記唔記得個索女呀!《情迷索瑪利》喎!

 156 上次紅左索瑪利,今次呢個索性兩點畢露,彈唔彈得起睇佢造化。

154 Ben Stiller好興係套戲度扮d騎離人,通常都係怕怕羞羞,其實含苞待放,一觸即發。(左﹕TSAM內扮演個性內向但心地善良的無知少年。成年後變成右﹕成個白頭佬咁既外表斯文,內裏開放既咸濕大滾友。)

麻甩係Ben Stiller離唔開既主題,而麻甩亦有上下等之分,通常佢都有個稍為好佢少少既buddy,另外就女性都係簡單到既二分法,一係令人嘔電都嘔唔切既八婆,另一類就係佢心目中既女神。八婆們既存在係用黎襯托女神有幾矜貴,就好似葉一樣,唔止,係被佢係套戲度糟質到都連爛泥都不如!而佢既buddy呢﹖唔駛問,都係用黎襯托呢個下等麻甩其實都有佢可愛既地方~~~17


上次有個整容阿媽,今次就有個巓喪老婆。其實佢「老婆」原本都好索架。 但係結左婚之後就唔知點解突然走樣,喪野都走曬出黎,仲要係Ben Stiller原來係受害者!後來畀佢遇到個「真愛」,到左最後,原來男人始終都係麻甩,死性不改。


睇完套戲,一D都唔覺得好笑,就係因為我唔係麻甩。記得之前睇過一堆短片,都係用男人黎開玩笑既,再正如幾世前既Full Monty, 係男人睇完都話中正男人既心聲,oh sorry! I don't get it!


男人係咪真係咁污糟同賤格同下流呢﹖睇完之後,我覺得冇理由唔相信係。


講返套戲,睇返佢地個official website,原來套戲被譽為全美國最好笑既電影之一。我地香港版原來有d shots係剪走左,但都係無所大雅的畫面。不過覺得套戲好得美國佬,開d基佬玩笑呀、扮mexican走佬既慘況呀、d靚仔克人憎腰心腰肺既寸咀呀......一d都唔係咁好笑。仲覺得有d過份添!



唔知幾時美國人變得咁低俗,低俗到咁既地步......

mindfulness

It was kinda depressing this morning as I am really tired, and secondly lots of good things happen, but not for me406.  I envy of them indeed, it is because I seem like being stuck at here<--it does not necessarily mean the place where I am staying but the space and the time as well.

2007 is going to be over very soon. What have you done in this year? What things you wanna start but never finish at last? There are a few incidents happen to me, not many, but huge, significant enough to rock my boat, to swept me from head to toe.

It is a huge thing...the changes. I am not dared enough to touch the feelings at this moment. I might need to make a photo album as a remembrance of this part of my life. I need to have a checklist of myself, what to do and what;s not.

  • Travel
  • Money
  • Work
  • Family

This summer I have practised the real mindfulness training. Before that I never thought I could able to sit down and meditate for over 1 minute. The training is not really a training indeed, it is only rituals or ceremony frequently practised in Buddha Community. It is reciting (loudly, some really do)prayers printed on book in the hall altogether at the same time, the prayer book named 地藏經. People, evenly elderly can recite them quickly without really reading the book. There are sort of 13 chapters which is talking about the hell and the reason be there. I thought it was easy to recite the things, however, it is extremely difficult to recite them fast and without pause moment, I need to concentrate on the book vvvvv much in order to catch up with others instead of slowing reading the prayers word by word. this is when and where I learnt mindfulness.


What is mindfulness?
You are not your thoughts. Thoughts take us away from being here now. If I am thinking about the past, or worried about the future, I am a prisoner of my thoughts. When I take a moment to observe myself having thoughts, I am no longer the thoughts. I get to be and observe at the same time. That's why if I continue to come back to my breath which always occurs in the here and now, it draws me into the present. From that vantage point I can observe as past and future attempt to draw me away from the moment. This paying attention to the here and now, to the breath, to the observing one's thoughts without being critical or judgmental is what many people call Mindfulness.

萬千師奶賀台慶後感

尋日去香港文化中心大劇院睇瑞文,可能因為同林奕華合作既關係,今次既演出都「非常林奕華」。整個節目長達三小時,連中場休息。瑞文個人台上one man show,飾演與林眼中的「師奶」。節目分開多個小段進行,侍一段扮演不同角色,並以多首當年的主打流行曲穿插其中,務求recall我地既memory,帶出「師奶台」全盛時期的集體回憶。

今次扮演了各式各樣的香港師奶,由忙碌到要3AM開會的女強人至如何打扮自己也要問老公的無知師奶,由汪阿姐的盲妹到陳志雲的智能焗飯,都是一人獨腳戲,由頭唱到尾。可能始於是男人,娖肩多微妙變化都彷彿被忽略了;扮演個別女人時尚可以奇招出勝,但是一次過要變成那麼多種女人,奇招也變不再新奇了。

扮演的女人,口邊最常出現﹕「死啦!」「點算呀﹖」「死嘢!」「下~~﹖」「嗚~~」諸如此類。即使那位(手)機不離手,「postpone個meeting到今晚3點」的女強人,她應付日理萬機,到最後還是聲嘶力竭地喊著﹕「阿媽!我唔想變成你咁呀!」...難道與林的眼中,香港師奶(還是女人﹖)真的這麼令人覺得可悲﹖(OH!!!題外話,那些女強人呀!她的語氣神態動作對白真的令人聯想到公司那幾件女強人呢!汗喇!!!!!)

不過當中還有不少笑料間場,歸功於的即場發揮,可能因為首場關係,與觀眾互動的距離還在調教中,因此未有太多驚喜,偶爾還會念錯幾句對白呢!

可能今次是與林的合作關係,表面上歌舞昇平,人人歡天喜地為你上演一齣好戲!背後卻訴說著認真而嚴肅的道理。不過,林的劇常常是這樣,眾人粉墨登場載歌載舞千辛萬苦給你做一場大龍鳳,原來背後正高呼「香港已死!」。不管那是諷刺香港政治的東宮西宮還是別的,都是重覆同一個訊息。其實,我對林一直是有期望的......

多年前跟朋友看一齣他與胡恩威的劇,劇中人物都是諷刺意味居多。當日有不少觀眾是大學教授,或者從事教育界的,大家對其中一段諷刺大學生反智的戲有不少「意見」。有些教授認為他們對大學生行為的反應(其實是批評)過激,有不少大學生十分有理想云云,胡及林亦於台上即席反駁說他們不少成員都是大學生,卻犯著同樣的毛病,期望他們能有所「進步」等等。後來慢慢從香港意識形態討論變成台上先進知識分子與台下大學教授的口舌之爭。我和朋友坐在一旁看戲,朋友終於按奈不住舉手發言,因為不少教授都是她尊敬及仰慕的,怎料卻被知識分子扣帽子,認為她流於感性,發言純為力撐教授之說。對於兩位知識分子如此反應,尤其是胡氏,我更加不明所以。既然他們在戲中能夠盡情地嬉笑怒罵,戲外又苦口婆心語重心長扮演智慧老人,為甚麼會突然衝動,對台下一位無名觀眾的發言「感情用事」呢﹖

喜歡趁虛的我,馬上興高彩列加入戰團參了一句﹕「我對你們的劇一直十分欣賞,難得有人對本地大學生還抱有期望,說明了你們希望香港有進步這句說話。不過同時我也想知道你們對自己有甚麼期望﹖」他們的答案我非常失望!

胡馬上在空中舞動雙手,激動地說﹕「過鐘啦!我地唔講喇!要加場租架!」,他轉過身,怒氣沖沖的對林說﹕「佢同佢地夾埋架!」,然後在台上揚長而去。台下的我為此感到非常託異,「唔敢答定係唔識答﹖」我問自己。台下也登時靜了,林馬上搶過米高峰,雙方緊緊握著,望著觀眾席對我說﹕「我對自己的期望是希望自己任何時候都保持真誠。」

萬千師奶賀台慶最後一場,主角淡淡然地說﹕「做人最緊要有誠意,因為只有誠,才能讓人心誠服」。謝幕時又「希望香港繼續進步。」熟真熟假呢﹖我分不清。不過,假如,假如香港真的如他想像般進步,那麼他可能不得不絕跡於令他神往的戲場創作了。

一個徹底的白羊人。做事憑一股衝勁,接著後勁不繼,即朋友說的3分鐘熱度。怎麼說好呢﹖


即使只有3分鐘熱度,也學習如何好好發揮,成為最漂亮的永恆。
