二零一四年・七一遊行實記

舊年缺席七一遊行,政府眼見人數不理想,立刻於今年加強宣傳力度,先後有多名政府官員、親中人士發表激勵性言論,及有多件社會大眾有目共睹的荒唐事發生,一切有如旨在確保今年小編放假都會出外「慶祝回歸」:一年又過去,記得好好回望香港回歸後的歲月過得如何,同時為香港的來年許下「回歸願望」。

Shing Kin – with 400k others at 2012 7-1 protest

十五周年,四十萬香港人,兩個幾鐘維園等候,彼岸煙花匯演,此岸倒彩不斷。我只知道上街不是為衝突,不是為挑釁任何人。儘管路只有半條,我都會安靜把它走完。站出來的原因亦很簡單: Continue reading

那些年已過去

新一年,第一個願望是希望不再看到「那些年」為題的文章(這一篇…不算)。2011年可謂沒多少開心事,後半尤其發生頗多荒謬和令人氣憤兼擔憂的事。李克強訪港、港府高官政圈「愚」樂新聞、全球金融形勢、致知故鄉﹣於西雅圖的華盛頓大學學費飆升(苦了一班學弟妹)。最令人乍舌和心寒莫過於除夕當晚,電視新聞片段是一段又一段的市民街頭狂歡,鬧區燈飾璀燦﹣「本港多個公共事業表示將會加價…」。心頭頓時「﹠﹪﹠@#。!」這就是2012的頭炮。

Let’s take a walk my friend.

No doubt, the result of the Hong Kong District Council Election let down many Hong Kong people (the youth probably) and the pan-democracy camp just got defeated with a low number of votes. Well, do we not cherish “democracy”? Is this result not “representative” of “democracy”? Do “we” give up “democracy”? You have the best interpretation.

What leads you to depression is probably more than the election. We have a whole bunch of stars of the century passed away recently, the ones that we might care about the most are Ricky Hui (許冠英) and Cupertino’s Steve (Actually, we can’t ignore the passed-away of Dennis Ritchie, who invented C and UNIX). One created a new style of life, one created our collective childhood memory. Yet, more to upset Hong Kong people these days include the lawsuit of foreign maids’ citizenship in Hong Kong… Across the pacific, what else you would curse are probably the tough US economy and job market, and the never-go-down college tuition.

So now what? Life goes on dude. Therefore, what I recommend you to do to escape from and to better deal with all these pains is, a walk, not a facebook walk. Continue reading
