給香港人的小信件


一個社會需要不同聲音;這句說話人人都懂得說,但是為什麼需要呢?那些不同聲音要黎做咩呢?

因為我們要從多角度審視自己的身分;這才是它寶貴的地方。

沒有人小你,你會很大鑊。大家口說自己有意見,其實只是人云亦云,這是另一種大鑊。

我離港好一段日子了,這陣子,香港發生了許多事,電燈膽、國慶、美孚8000蚊一呎......大家是時候認真對待自己讀到的新聞,問問自己對這些事 exactly 有什麼看法,如果沒有,就與人討論,讀讀不同的評論,讓自己對世界有多些感受。

日子天天過,你到頭來死了,留下什麼呢?沒有什麼想法,就只留下一層樓?這是多麼的 on 9。

但這只是我的聲音,你也可以不信我的,自己找尋一下吧。

我在這裡一天到晚都在讀西方哲學和 art theory,說到底,學者們處理的問題來來去去都是那一堆:我是誰?誰誰誰的想法有沒有弱點?社會的從前現在和將來發生什麼事?什麼才是出路?how should we perceive the world?

人生來去匆匆,你到底想怎樣活你的人生?

住外國有樣野叫"寧靜"
好處係 好好比妳沉澱來思考一番
壞處係 有時會想太多

一樓0既comment 講得好岩.
一個人響外國有好多時間去諗野.
我依家都係.
時間多到不得了
有時諗野會over 左. '想得太多'

人生的確來沖沖去沖沖.
幾時死
幾時有病
有一日可能知道自己得番幾個月命
又有可能無啦啦猝死左自己唔知
所以其實自己用一個咩0既價值觀去生活係自己決定
可能自己好唔滿意自己每一日
日日番工放工hea 左佢
但自己又可以好充實去做d 自己想做0既野

我個人覺得
只要人每一日做0既野. 做0既決定唔會後悔
你自然會搵到自己存在0既價值
每個人諗0既野都唔同
我覺得只要有由心出發0既開心.
咁你人生就有意義.
最重要人唔應該係膚淺咁過.






到頭來
人走左
就會留低好多好人心中0既美好回憶
呢d 無論點都係整唔走.
一生一世都會存響我地心裏面.
:)

中文很差 : 是 "匆匆", 去完 OS / OL, 才要 "沖沖"

不一定要在外國,其實在香港也可享有寧靜。
身處何地不是重點,將心安靜下來才是。

何必只羨慕他人(身在外國)?
要知道,即使身處外國,其實好多外國人也是得個空殼,唔思考的囉。

我記得有一個說法, 人不只是要一個不能磨滅的地位, 而是要一個不能被取代的地位.

我們都在花掉他們的一生, 去追求這個, 即使最後可能都是找不到...

學術一點的說法, 這就是身份認同吧...

香港人實在太順從太易被人煽動,香港的教育也從來不要求思考,所以實在很難要他們獨立思考,所以每件新聞也是獨立事件,一窩蜂瞎起哄然後被人淡忘,G,如果你有看到這幾天那單網上起底事件的新聞,你應該會很生氣。

There's a lot of crap going on in HK, and some people are just saying "yeah, it sucks...", but sometimes it feels...... um...
especially the people in power, rich guys and some people in government, they say they are listening, but it's just bullshit. They hear it and say "we won't censor you, you are entitled to your opinion" and "oh we are concerned too" and then do nothing to make the city better.

Some other people are saying "yes, it really sucks", but then ignore it, and get back to their daily grind.

To relate to the theory stuff. We can disagree with Marx, for example, but the context that caused Marx to write his stuff is interesting. Class struggles, economy, globalization, are all relevant to our thinking.

Sometimes I think HK is dying and it breaks my heart. Who can do something?

為何讀書一定要對工作有用?
這種港式, 資本式的論調不能抹殺所有人.

國興 應該是 國慶

在香港,什麼都快,要有效率,做完後看不到價值就會自動消失
在外國,沒有那般忽忙,人們為價值,意義去做事,做一件事可能十年後才會看得到成果,做一張唱片可能要五至十年,但成果都係偉大,哄動。這是我追求的東西。

sweetest bites said...

我也希望死去之後可以留在世上一丁點有意義的東西
未必是實體的偉大貢獻 ...

可能係一種影響到人既態度
即使只係影響到身邊幾位朋輩
也足夠.

g i support you :]

離開香港一段時間, 第一次見你既文字有D"類粗口"字眼. 欣慰. 成香港衣家都"芒" 住左一層"標準" 每個香港人衣家都只可以係一個樣, 聰明既你, 唔洗舉例啦. 真係令人透不過氣. 你既point 好岩~人云亦云. 香港人就係驚比人小,驚比人覺得異類,得不到認同而事事包底, 毫無菱角. 個個都叫我圓滑D喎. 我先唔要面目模糊咁做人~咁圓滑托呀?! 我又唔係波!

As some who has lived in a foreign country for over twenty years, this is a point I can't agree more and something not many people realized

"沒有什麼想法,就只留下一層樓?這是多麼的 on 9。"

quote of the day and indeed it made my day.

but seriously everyone pursues different ways of living; one does not necessarily have to be a thinkee to live the life with meaning. like if one thinks money and fame matter, then if he gets it, bash ding, he gets a meaningful life; wots wrong with this? whenever he attains what he REALLY wants out of the life, he has a great life, that simple.

Chi Yuen Lam said...

阿芝,恭喜你!

讀書果然唔同D,成個醒晒!

"沒有什麼想法,就只留下一層樓?這是多麼的 on 9。"

真係佳句!

有幸今天還未有樓!

可惜身邊D人都認為係我 on 9。

他們不明白"書中自有黃金屋"的道理啊!

志遠

多謝你, 尤其我最近先俾人小完....充滿正能量, yeah

ben said...

"沒有什麼想法,就只留下一層樓?這是多麼的 on 9。"..好認同!!!!!

on 9在於沒有自己的想法,而不是有一層樓,有樓又有自己想法的一點都不on 9

好多香港人便是併命的供樓,為的可能是想俾人知道自己有本事供得起一層樓,最後卻成了樓奴,到死果日先知道自己冇享受過生活

「大家口說自己有意見,其實只是人云亦云,這是另一種大鑊。」
謝安琪係個好例子
明明上年全城都播囍貼街全城都捧佢
今年講起佢我身邊D朋友已經眼耳口鼻扭作一團
批評佢個陣淨係識話唔知佢唱乜唔知佢唱乜
點解覺得佢唔知唱乜又講唔到


記得龍應台寫過有一次參加完民主活動坐的士返屋企 佢同朋友問個司機點唔參加
司機話:「搵錢緊要啊!」

一個社會平靜唔係好事
社會之所以平靜因為百姓唔思考
對於香港市民搵錢係首要
好難有人會去諗點解自己好似搵極都唔夠
恐怖的主流價值觀同媒體都洗我地腦 話比我地知物質會為我地帶黎滿足 但事實係身邊人都係:買極都唔夠。 而好多人都選擇安坐家中任你洗 你叫佢地唔睇電視 等同叫你即刻返香港一樣「死人架喎!」

年前有幸起收費電視電影台睇到Bowling for Columbine 其中有講到媒體對人民影響有幾大 方大同細個爸爸唔比佢睇電視 你問方大同佢都話:我好少睇電視。所以佢咁脫俗囉

「唔好睇咁多電視啊,電視會荼毒你架!」

what cheers me up, now u r not obligated (well... in a way) to public, u can swear while it can precisely present ur meaning

keep sharing what you wanna share, em always hunger for it.

Can't agree more.

I constantly ask myself why I keep writing...it seems like I am not doing it for a reason, but actually what I thought may cast impact on someone I don't know!

快樂~

我覺得一個人可以活出自己,就能夠有真正的快樂~其實我地成日問自己係邊個,但有時越問越R頭。反而,靜待事機,有些事情能完美地project你自己。所以在這個過程當中,最緊要唔好呃自己~

同埋,我真係覺得樂天知命是很緊要,是所有人也需要學習~
