當海灘遇上石灘


長情的人是個大悶蛋嗎?我食的、穿的、看的、聽的、交往的,來來去去都是那些東西!我是個不肯接受新的事物悶蛋嗎?只是舊東西還有很多可能性未被發現,我依然好奇想知道,更加唔介意俾人話我係個長情大悶蛋!




已經去過好多次BRIGHTON,今朝萌起去的原因有兩個,因為終於落雨同我想聽BRETT ANDERSON,可惜去到時天朗氣清,聽到BRETT 用佢永恆都咁浪漫腔口唱著TWO CRETURES的重要一句「YOU & ME WERE JUST TWO CREATURES ON THE RUN... 」我不禁回想第一次來到這個海邊小鎮時的情景,寒冷,大風,有雨,我跟情人在長堤上,攜著手跑入室內的遊戲中心避雨,當時覺得真係好浪漫,但其實落到咁大雨,梗係會咁做架啦!想到這裡,自己不禁笑左出黎!諗開就繼續諗,第二次來這個地方,我看到無數一家大細,扶老攜幼在耍樂,我覺得好溫馨,但這個樂也融融畫面的背後的辛酸,絕非我生命欲追求的東西!再想對上一次來,怎至跟同行的友人嘈交,原因是他替我安排了全個行程,咁我點解唔跟旅行團黎!至於今次,是我去BRIGHTON最開心的一次!
一個人去到這個如廝浪漫溫馨的地方,由火車站落車直行到石灘再過長堤,然後繞過商業區回到火車站離去,全程不過一小時,成十五磅車費,咁樣玩法以經濟效益而言,真係有D蝕,但玩多幾個鐘唔代表抵左,可能只會悶左,從前玩半日,除左係因為對個地方唔熟,大部份係因為要就呢個,就果個,今日自己去,鐘意玩幾耐就幾耐,唔駛扮浪漫行石灘,唔駛特登坐低食FISH & CHIPS,唔駛玩攤位遊戲,唔駛見到人地一家溫馨就要大談未來建立家庭的大計,唔駛玩完機動遊戲想走仲要陪人行SHOPPING MALL,唔駛想去馬場睇下,但幾個人跟住你,終於真係睇下,睇多陣都唔好意思!
一個人鐘意做乜就乜,影相唔駛趕住要影完跟上大隊,浪廢食物同車費都無人會管到我,唔駛因為要驚唔好意思而跟足有人的安排,聽住歌唔駛同人溝通,靜靜觀看這個小鎮,終於有新發現,原來這裡同咖啡灣差不多,分別只在於我的心情,這裡讓我知道一個人的快樂,此時,I-POD正播出EASON的舊歌
「除非你是我,才可與我常在」
到頭來我們都是跟自己最相親,早些學習自處,找出自處的快樂,與其他人分享快樂,並不一定要即時,更不一定要得到對方回應,懂得自處,就懂得與其他人相處,這種生活態度既經濟又實惠,想到這裡我開始明白D人點解到我呢個年紀就會怕死,因為尋找半生,就是要找到一個自己喜歡的生活模式,找到了發現自己已一把年紀,開始擔心自己仲可以享受得幾耐,不過幾耐都好啦!

Thanks for sharing! I miss brighton pretty much. It's been my home for nearly 9 years.
How nice to walk on the beach in the freezing cold summer time! hehe...

By the way, did you try the mini donuts sold in the first shop on the left of Brighton Pier? They are real nice!

Even I can't agree to your "enjoy yourself" theory. I started to understand sometime you NEED to be alone.
I am in a stage of my life that I felt abandon, lost and even just don't want to think anymore.

一個人去
仲可以影到張背影相!?

原來去左英國懷念。。。

所以上次去英國都有去埋visit brighton 專登買支 brighton rock 來食 ^^

你仲去邊呀 返黎未呀~~

not to ruin your mood, but as you travel from place to place, station to station, listening to your nice music background, looking at different faces around, do u feel just a little bit lonely? because i do that all the time, and just hope that if i have the best companion next to me, to enjoy and have fun, to share laughter and sadness. too bad, i can't find such person, and found that the one who know me the best is myself, do u call this self-centered?

p.s. try turn off your music, and listen to the sound of your surroundings. maybe be u will find something fun.

再身處回憶的地方, 一年, 五年, 十年...... 可能, 我已認不出坐在隔一張長櫈的人, 是以往最親的某某.

hello mat, how come you still apprea on tar tar tar when you're in UK?
I've been to brighton a few times always had a good time.

ZonnIe said...

睇左D相就明白點解你會再去一次,但係一個人,一部I-POD,不寂寞嗎?

唔知我幾時先會怕死?

最後一張相是你SET腳架影的嗎?

阿包 said...

我都覺得一個人去玩系最舒服的

ght said...

A very cozy weekend! I'm glad that you've learnt how to live yr own life. I'm trying to figure this out too. It isn't so hard anyway, is it?

BTW, I like this country. Good shots. Who took 'em?

Meo...ooo...ow

may be there was a chance that we walk pass wivout knowing each other in brighton~ i always went there when i was in college 5 years~ kinda miss this place after seeing these fotos. it brings back many memory for me too

M said...

我不認為長情代表悶蛋,不然,我也是一個大悶蛋了。那只不過是我一早就已經很清楚自己想要的是甚麼罷了。
以前我都會跟團,後來試了好幾次一個人在途上以後,就再也受不了這種旅行模式。要不是要陪媽媽一起旅行的話,我一定不會跟團,以及well-planned。
P.S.學習自處,學習在自處中自得其樂之餘,也要學習面對孤獨寂寞。後者才是最難的。

我以前都同你一樣咁唸...好多野一個人去做感覺仲好...但偏偏人類就係群體既動物...

If you walk further along the beach (east side, passing the brighton pier), there's a new place called Brighton Marina. It's a pretty cool place with restaurants, bars, and all sorts of watersports. You can also take boat trip to the sea!! Brighton is quite pretty when you look back from the sea!

海灘,
又再次非常同意最後两段,簡直你手寫我心。
請容許我在hotmail跟你説我這大半年的思緒有幾庸人自擾,心情起伏不定,但又找不到朋友傾訴。 希望不會嚇怕你。

been studying in brighton for 5 years... however i am going to london for uni now... i know i will miss brighton a lot... its certainly one of my favourite town.........................

next time when you're in brighton, try a seafood restaurant called Regency at Regency square... its not expensive but they have very fresh seafood and delicious desserts!

Brighton 附近有個小鎮 Eastbourne ,唔知海灘去過未呢? 同樣係個海岸小鎮,同brighton一樣,係美麗的石灘旁有個pier,有disco,有沿海岸線而建的花園,多到好似flower carpet咁。佢仲有個出名的七姐妹懸崖,beachy head,係個自殺勝地。

同brighton稍又不同,eastbourne 幾乎係住宅區,好靜,但夏日時分靜得黎又好有活力,無brighton咁商業。

如沒記錯,Suede 的 She's in fashion MV好像就是在eastbourne 拍的。

一連串的歐洲介紹,不知suede 的Europe is our playground 是否引起你的共鳴? wakakka Brett Anderson 的聲線同腰肢一樣咁正!!

read all guys had their memories while they have been studying at overseas. Brighton and their memories brings me to remember Melbourne where the place is called Brighton also, similar scenes and feelings.

你話:想到這裡我開始明白D人點解到我呢個年紀就會怕死,因為尋找半生,就是要找到一個自己喜歡的生活模式,找到了發現自己已一把年紀,開始擔心自己仲可以享受得幾耐,不過幾耐都好啦!
