Cluck ?

It’s been so long since I slept with a woman that I just can’t remember if it’s the same as sleeping with my cats.

One day I may have the answer to this puzzling question… 303 more words

Beaujolais 博若萊新酒節

此文摘自《新假期》2012年11月26日 第690期文章。

Santé!
音:桑 Tay;意:健康,常於碰杯時說,類似我們的「飲杯」、「Cheers」。

法國二年目(10)之 法定爛醉日

每年11月的第三個星期四,全法大街小巷都洋溢著一片喜氣洋洋的熱鬧氣氛,為的就是慶祝 Beaujolais Nouveau博若萊新酒開瓶節!

我酒量淺也不好飲酒,本來覺得事不關己,不過全部法國朋友都硬要迫我出去:「去酒吧喝 Beaujolais,主旨不在品酒,而是一種傳統!」用到傳統兩個字來撻我這個愛死法國的人,我真的很難再搵借口推搪。根據Time Out France的推介,我和朋友在那晚七時多就來到Le Marché des Enfants Rouges (紅色小孩市場)— 位於瑪黑區、全巴黎最古老的市場,平時下午熱鬧的小食攤檔都收工了,冷清清的,唯獨是角落的Versant Vins迫滿了喝酒的人,我和朋友打了打眼色,是這裡了!

終於迫到埋吧枱點酒,酒吧職員在無問過我們意願的情況下從眾多支Beaujolais 新酒中選了一支噗一聲開了,她把深紅色的新酒徐徐倒進酒杯裡,坐在旁邊的法國人硬要跟我們Santé!還深情地望著我朋友提醒說:「跟人碰杯說Santé記得要望實人雙眼,不然你未來七年也沒能發生性行為!」這對法國人來說大概是天下最惡毒的咀咒吧!所以他們每每都例必凝著對方雙眼來碰杯!(講開又講,來了法國一年,我最大的改變之一—無論聽幾多鹹濕(冷)笑話都從容不迫,我以前可是一聽就整個人生硬起來,成身唔聚財。)

我以飲苦茶的面口來迎接第一啖新酒Beaujolais……邊喝額頭邊放鬆眼睛邊發亮,唏!就是這個味道嗎?一點也不「難飲」,甜甜的,很Light喎!一連喝了幾口,放下酒杯,再環顧酒吧,雖然沒有漂亮裝潢可言,其平民程度就好比《重慶森林》中王菲個表哥開那家外賣快餐店,Local味甚濃,友善氣氛讓人十分自在。我也不知道到底是這個酒吧客源的關係還是Beaujolais 新酒的魔法,這晚的巴黎人心情靚到呢……陌生人跟陌生人的隔閡也打破了,大家很容易搭得上嘴! 35 more words
