疾走英倫



認識一個城市,跟結交新朋友係一樣,總無可能見一次真完全明白對方,一見如故的人實在太小,一次就愛上的城市更加小,但總有些人你見第一眼就決定一定唔會見面,總有城市你去好多次都仲想去!
你問我LONDON 有咩好玩,其實都不外乎果幾樣,「行街、買野、睇MUSICAL、行MESUIM、睇波、CLUBING..」而當然最常做就係避雨!飛機一到希斯路,我雨多田光就忍唔住講左句「THIS IS LONDON !」你有睇曼聯對爾頓就知D雨有幾大!但竟然第二日奇蹟降臨於我身上!





無乜相影到,因為真係無乜好影,十年前來同十年後再來,都是那些地方,OXFORD CIRCUS、 PICCADILLY CIRCUS、LEICESTER SQUARE賣D野都係差唔多,COVENT GARDEN都仲係表演緊果D表演,搵中國城都仲係好易,因為仲有人講粗口,但係八成係普通話了!CAMDEN TOWN依然似講英文的女人街、HARRDOS地庫個FOOD COURT依然係食一個星期都食唔完、D巴士轉晒新款..... 其他所謂旅遊區去過唔想再去,未去過而家唔想去,咁我係LONDON做咩?!
其實我最鐘意都見車就上,唔知去邊,見到個站名幾鐘意就落車,然後無無謂謂行下行下,睇下D人!而家LONDON除左唐人(大陸人)多之外,仲有好多東歐人黎左做野,聽講有成六十萬人,所以你係LONDON英文,如果對方無乜反應,未必係你講差,可能佢地跟本聽唔掂,或者聽到唔識點答!飄洋過海的人,總是心事重重,從前我喜歡聽唐人街的老華橋講他們的故事,每一次聽,我都會感嘆自己是多麼的幸揊,現在那些人已經不在,換來的是那些毫無人情味的大陸新移民,一險茫然,各家自掃門前雪,他鄉與故之,笑容欠奉,一副講多無謂,食完快D走,這樣冷漠真的/令我有點難堪,但跟這城市相當相襯!
LONDON沒變的,就是那副擺明係貴夾唔飽,你有錢就黎,黎到唔代表特別好招呼,冷漠依舊,囂張依然!所以陽光普照真係唔多夾呢個城市,但一早一晚天氣還是很冷,我今朝瑟縮係KINGSCROSS火車站等車,我覺得相當恰如其份,就是喜歡你這個模樣,反而你對熱情,我會不懂招架!老朋友麻,簡單自然就得了,能夠聚頭已經好滿足了!

英國嘅天氣真係好怪,喺 Alton Towers 就橫風橫雨冬到得十幾度, 十日後玩到去London就熱到三十幾度, 真系要帶定四季衣裳!

各家自掃門前雪?我看的不一樣....
我在Loughborough讀書時,中國人見中國人會份外熱情.下london玩的時候,連坐bus也會有人主動跟我說話.雖然我很dud地跟他們說我是香港人,但再多加一句"香港也是中國的一部份"時,會見到他們的笑是真的是自毫的~
粗口嘛....都是唐人街的"黑社會"和留學生吧...要不是放了假,廣東話的粗口也不會遜色...

“飄洋過海的人,總是心事重重”
今日最鍾意呢句﹐ 很有點張愛玲的味道。

我都有幾年冇去london喇, 記得上次去都係得到海藍色的天空, 幾難得架, 但其實我反而鍾意佢灰灰暗暗毛毛雨, 襯佢多d, 好有型!! ps:很掛念他的fish & chips~

海灘,你仲喺倫敦?
我對這個城市幾有好感,可能去前做足資料搜集,編好行程。大路旅遊熱點、周邊城市都有去。最鍾意Cambridge, Dover, Bach。
在康河坐大學生兼職撐的船,即刻想起徐志摩的再別康橋(陶傑好藐的所謂詩人)。但係...撐一支長篙向青草更深處...真係幾有意境。
最遺憾係無去下午茶,完全沒有想過,真失敗!

Beach,
你係唔係住在英國朋友的家呢? 佢地係唔係couple 黎ga?

benny said...

灘叔:
如果你覺得london係咁悶既話就唔好移民去外國住,因為都係咁樣既生活,仲要唔係自己既地方所以覺得特別冇癮.
如果話香港依家既人情味薄,咁外國就係冇人情味呢樣也,真係,個個都變得自私,認錢唔認人!

你几时去噶??

倫敦人與西歐其他大城市人相比, 簡直是冷漠到暈, 莫說新移民~

unkle beach:

我都係好鐘意 London
睇到你d相...令我好miss london
不過我反而唔鍾意有奇蹟sunshine既 london
我就係鍾意呢個城市既灰色 暗淡 同埋凍

好羨慕你呀~~~

Hihi~ 估唔到你黎左英國 喔~ 山長水又遠..

你遲左黎喇~! 上2個月day day天睛~ 仲熱過香港喇~ 好陽光到D 人都nice D~

依家唔只london多中國人啦~ 全英都係!!!!
不過英國既中國人特別冷漠~ 反而英國人就算唔識你都會對你微笑~(除左london人) 中國人就只會對你視而不見的~ 或者好似你所講冷漠先親得呢個城市啦!~~~

祝你玩得開心D啦~ 幾時走呀? 仲會去邊度玩?

given how much the other dudes are wearing, I am guessing that unkle beach didn't wear a thing back there. :) ok, that's pretty 'ewww'. :P J/K.

Hmm... the comment about the immigrants from mainland, I really found it amusing. I am kinda surprised that you are pretty vocal at this, given that you are a public figure. To me, it's really a matter of opinion, I don't find ppl from hk particularly more polite, nor they speak less foul languages. I can easily replace your opionion about ppl from mainland with ppl from hk. It's not the origin of who that ppl is from, it's more of what education he/she possesses. Do you agree?

咩唧... said...

我都試過向London既街頭流浪...
本來係去一個朋友到借宿,點知佢居然唔記得..
不過正所謂在家靠父母,出外就靠朋友~
最後叧一個朋友開車來接濟我~
流浪時間歷時四小時...還好~

Hey Matt,
thanks for the lovely afternoon. It's a pity that Nat has to go home early. Should meet up when I come back to HK next time. Cheers.
