「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

新華書城

新華書城



開業幾年的香港新華書城, 位於跑馬地馬場, 天樂里個邊出口, 正確地址是銅鑼灣禮頓道1號,4層佔地達3.2萬呎,新華書城 雖然比不上國內的規模, 對愛書的人, 也是個喜訊, 可惜也難逃逼遷的命運.


自二零零四年起, 時時話要去行行 新華書城, 買返幾本簡體字書籍, 但因為不就腳, 亦屢屢不行經銅鑼灣頭, 灣仔尾個處, 多年來從未曾去過.


在明報讀到香港 新華書城, 在十一月將會收縮規模, 並遷往北角新都城大廈地庫, 面積蹜小很多地方, 重新開業, 就趁休假中, 急急去了舊址一趟.


可惜為時已晚, 書架上的書, 十架已經九空, 剩下的書不多, 好一些還十分殘破不堪的, 比較熱門的都收起到新舖才賣, 祇怪自己懶惰喇, 為避免空手而回, 唯有買下幾本閒書: 有孔子的, 有孫子的, 有宋詞的幾本.


不過新都城 新華書城新址鄰近老家, 返去探老爸老媽時, 可以順路常走去了逛逛. 週六早上和母親大人吃完早茶, 就去到新址看看, 裡面書架已經放滿了書. 相信離開張日子不遠.

我都無留意這間"大書局"添,
淨係記得二三年前有人投訴佢哋賣狗肉烹調食譜喳,
可能因為入便多內地書啩,
哈哈哈~~~~ =p

How I wish there is a Chinese book store in this city. Currently, there is ZERO (not counting those that sell books as well as slippers, clothes, pots and pans, and other household items in the same store).

"收縮規模, 並遷往北角新都城大廈地庫,"

聽韓國的女同事說狗肉有幫助性能力和抗毒,
我沒有需要需求從未吃過狗肉, 好吃的嗎? 鮮兄!
