「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

A different jingle for this Christmas



寄調 Santa Claus is coming to Town

You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
You'd better keep cash I'm telling you why:
Recession is coming to town.

It's hitting you once,
It's hitting you twice
It doesn't care if you've been careful and wise
Recession is coming to town

It's worthless if you've got shares
It's worthless if you've got bonds
It's safe when you've got cash in hand
So keep cash for goodness sake, HEY

You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
You'd better keep cash I'm telling you why:
Recession is coming to town!

Finance products are confusing
Finance products are so vague
The banks make you bear the cost of risk
So keep out for goodness sake, OH

You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
You'd better keep cash I'm telling you why:
Recession is coming to town.

Anyway, here comes the original, enjoy!

12月都未到就出聖誕歌?
好快手喎,
聖誕節快樂呀,
會唔會太早講呢? =p

外面越來越有聖誕氣氛呢:)

此歌非常配合現今市面的境況,既早有聖誕裝飾,卻缺乏聖誕普天同慶的心情,人心惶惶,更遑論聖誕氣氛了!

新鮮兄:
此歌不是應節唱的,
為了應景及早推出,
等到聖誕節過時囉,
聖誕恒指若冇起色,
要奏『安魂曲』嚕!

紫丁香君:
商場內外的聖誕布置陸續出場,
沿海的商廈外牆燈飾將要亮燈,
希望聖誕氣氛可以為港人沖喜,
暫時忘卻經濟股市的陰漓悲情。

Shek 兄:
歡迎再訪多謝留言!
在這境況,唯有苦中作樂,
唱唱改編了歌詞的聖誕歌。
還是送上一句:
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!
