圍城Walled City

無正式讀過圍城。第一次聽,係做緊第一份工同事講既。最出名既兩句,係外面既人想入去,裡面既人想出去。

每次聽到個書名,就想起呢個quote。

和孩子既好友一家去飲茶。期間,他們問起家鄉既情況。原來同學仔既爸爸可能有轉工既機會,不過可能要成家搬去。

一時間,真係有點講不出口。腦海就出現了書既呢句話,不過好快地,就知擔心係多餘。

佢地只係去掘金,甚至可以肯定,他們對那裡既語言和文化全無興趣!像他們呢種外國高層人士,去到根本係脫離社會的,孩子也被安排入int’l school, 接受西式既教育。就算去幾多年,他們都不會理會任何事。

從前見過既外國人,就係呢種。

而他們就一直享受著來到鄉下既禮待,但掉番轉,外來既人就不會有相同既遭遇了。不公平。

OLD TIMES

Old times,
Remembering the old days,
When we used to play in streets,

Times when we ran through the neighbourhood,
Naked and unashamed,
Innocent and carefree, 116 more words
