「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

消防船葛量洪號

消防船葛量洪號



葛量洪號滅火輪展覽館(The Fireboat Alexander Grantham Museum)是香港一所興建中的展覽館,位於香港島東區的鰂魚涌公園。展覽館將實物展示1953年於香港製造,2002年退役的滅火輪葛量洪號






展覽館現正進行最後階段的工程,預計於2007年秋季開放給公眾參觀。


葛量洪號曾是香港消防處的主力滅火輪,1953年6月30日在香港黃埔船塢出廠,耗資400萬港元製造,以當時的香港總督葛量洪爵士命名。2002年退役前一直為亞洲最大的消防船。



葛量洪號船身長38.9米,闊8.8米,高15米,排水量511噸,船速可達每小時11.7海里。船上設有多條用於救火的中攻喉筆、消防泵、水炮和打撈設備,能應付大型遠洋輪船的高層結構火警,並可作為大型海上事故的指揮船。(資料及圖片維基百科)


另 據TVB News 不久的將來可以上船免費參觀了。

香港的博物館我去過不少,
海事博物館未去過,
而這個新開的的亦有興趣,
遲點應該要走走看,
不過都係嗰句,
新屎坑三日香,
都係要少些人時才去吧!

The Inner Space said...

露天展覽日曬雨淋
完全免費不見守衛
自由行客隨手可得
不用三月遷皮拆骨

新鮮人 said...

唔會咁快掛,
舊船一隻自由行都有興趣咩??

The Inner Space said...

溝渠蓋,安全鐵欄,公廁門柵,掛勾,所有金屬的都不見了。

滅火輪上有銅喉頭,各樣的銅銅鐵鐵,都是值錢的,可以變賣的,可以搬,可以拆,郁得到,不用三月可以完全消失。

最後剩翻個船殼!

The Inner Space said...

個船殼,就寫滿了,或者刻了
李大軍,馬曉陽,張向東,陳愛兵,等等,YY年MM月DD日到此一遊。

新鮮人 said...

唔好咁呀~~~~~~~~
好"殘忍呀"!!!!!

The Inner Space said...

已經是事實喇!

睇今次歷時多久罷。

全港的旅游景點都是,淺水灣的天后廟很多題字,廟前的麒麟被摸得光滑,冇嗮顏色添。

The Inner Space said...

聽講『濕地公園』隻 【雪山飛狐】已經不能清潔恢復雪白,成了 灰狐!

新鮮人 said...

什麼【雪山飛狐】呀?
我重未去過『濕地公園』架,
唔好咁樣好掛!!!!!!
遲啲會唔會變雪山黑狐架???!!

The Inner Space said...

系呀!

『濕地公園』未去過, 唔....
你遲得滯去好可能見到隻黑狐而不是白雪狐。
黑狐白狐都是狐,中國人用眼都唔夠要摸摸至算。


同樣消防船的博物院可能遲些剩番個船殼咋,
去參觀應該趁早喇!

今日看新聞,
話有大肚婆去睇消防船,
硬是要人讓佢一家三口插隊喎,
新聞話都唔係好多人,
但係個大肚婆就以肚相迫,
搞到人人側目喎!

The Inner Space said...

大肚婆好霸度架!
知道啲人一定會幫著個肚裡面,
橫行霸度坐地鐵要讓位畀佢架,
排隊要禮讓畀佢排先一定優先,
好似我前個輪寫打油詩都有提,
果個會計大肚婆又霸度又多口。

新鮮人 said...

係咩,
係邊日呀?
我都想睇吓! :)

The Inner Space said...

打油詩在你主持的無聊人詩社
刊登過,亦在這裡登過!

係喎,
我睇過都唔記得添! :p

你office好多多咀師奶架?
買啲零食塞住佢哋把口得唔得呀?

The Inner Space said...

E + 啲師奶興瘦身,
零食遠離佢,
呢招冇效喇!

Space suggested that I read his achive. I did and I found the conversation here hilarious. You guys are too funny.

Besides the Fireboat Alexander Grantham Museum and Wet-land Park, any must-see suggestions?~

Exile, Freshdesigner is versatile, He can be formal and professional on the other hand he can be casual and sarcastic.

the inner space said...

furthermore, Exile, I am living in HK, everything is too familiar. But my cousin who came back after 30 years in the states found that the HK Museum of History (next to Science Museum Tsimshatsui Area) most interesting and met his nostalgia. The Heritage Museum at Taiwai (near Shatin) the most boring.

exile said...

Thanks for the HK Museum link. It's handy.

Museum of History is wonderful. I was in tears at the end of the visit four years ago. Silly me.

the inner space said...

eh! so Exile you knew more than me about the Museum of History. I were never been there b4 so I should arrange to take a Wednesday off becoz I heard every Wednesday free entry.

exile said...

Have you been to the Museum of Coastal Defense? It was interesting too. I stayed until they closed. I remember it was raining heavily that day and it was quite a long walk back to the Shaukiwan tram station. Yeah, I took advantage of the free day too.

the inner space said...

Exile, No I never been there yet, even after viewing the HK Govt web site I don't know how to get there by foot. There they only gave the driving direction. You were extremely smart to find the route by walking to the Museum from Shaukeiwan Tram Terminus.
