「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

慢幾拍的傢伙



對於流行和時興的事與物,由少小到成年,我都是慢幾拍的,有時別人流行時興完,我至戰戰兢兢的去嘗試。幼受庭訓:“三思而後行”,一來懼怕成為白老鼠,二來趕潮流,要花費較多金錢,永遠抱著慢一步也不遲心態,那麼就拖拖拉拉,遲遲沒有進行,是一個絕對切底“慢幾拍的傢伙” 。


當年時興,人人都“養雞仔”Tamagotchi,我並沒有參加,至到潮流退了,我都沒曾擁有有一個,當然有好心人,讓我拿在手中,幫忙喂雞仔,算是玩過一次,卻沒有衝動,自己去養雞雞,是一個“慢幾拍的傢伙”的好例子。


米高積遜 Michael Jackson 的音樂和歌曲,加上他獨步的《月球步法》Moonwalking steps,風魔全球,除了偶然在電視看看,在電臺聽聽歌,我是遲了好幾年,在他已經走下坡時,才去選聽他的歌曲,所以也沒有為他瘋狂,也是一個“慢幾拍的傢伙”的好例子。


年初這位 King of Pop Music,宣布在倫敦舉行 《This is IT!》演唱會,在不斷採排,精益求精中,年中一次服藥,不幸身亡。最近有部 documentary Michael Jackson's This Is It! 電影,記錄他的彩排 rehearsal,於十月廿八日在北美上映了,時間在半夜凌晨時份公開首映後,原本是說祇會上映兩週,但樂迷瘋狂捧場,電影公司已經改口,長映長有。 Trailers & Clips

【Yahoo Movie】A rare glimpse into the final days of Michael Jackson, the documentary is compiled from an estimated 80 hours of rehearsal and behind-the-scenes footage of the legendary entertainer preparing for his 50 sold-out shows at London's O2 Arena that were scheduled to commence in July 2009 before his untimely death in June at age 50. Interviews with collaborators and close friends of the late performer are also featured.


今次“慢幾拍的傢伙”倒想入場看看,不知香港會否得到放映權呢?寫文時翻查香港的雅虎電影網頁,香港暫時沒有安排同步上映,但很多私人網頁都說廿九日有得看。


對於近來香港和全球都十分流行的 H1N1 豬型流感 Swine Flu,由年中傳入香港,香港政府加以堵截,封酒店隔離措施,冠絕全球好戲,可惜北美諸國闊佬懶理,積極輸出 H1N1,令到香港孤掌難鳴,最終失守。


現今在北美 H1N1肆虐,在加拿大有位十三歲少年,由發病到死亡少於廿四小時,其他地區也死人無數,是死亡人數最多的一個大陸,看 CNN 新聞頻道,美國人加拿大人,人心惶惶,全民急急排隊,長長的人龍輪候,趕快拼死接種,劑量不足的預防疫苗 H1N1 flu shot,遲些又要再加打 Normal flu shot 防疫針,他們有沒有自我反省呢?還是死口不認悔不當初!


香港政府和立法會擾釀一番後,也急急放出招標,要求各藥廠落標,供應 Swine Flu H1N1 防預注射疫苗,相信香港也很快有 H1N1豬型流感針藥疫苗,我一向是連 Normal Flu 普通流感針都沒有打的人,今次應否盡早接種 Swine Flu H1N1 疫苗呢?還是一貫不做白老鼠心態,因為在歐美陸續都有發生,市民在接種 H1N1疫苗之後的死亡過案。


對於今次的流行性感冒,“慢幾拍的傢伙”應否再睇定一些,遲些看清楚疫情,才決定是否打 Flu shot 針,但要知道若是打了針,也不是立刻有效,需要兩星期才會產生預防效用,到時可能後悔莫及。要打一針還是打兩針呢?各位點睇?


後記:
今早再訪香港雅虎電影網頁,Michael Jackson's This Is It! 廿九日在香港上映,沒有另立中文譯名。片長 111分鐘,港九新界都有戲院上映,不用和人逼,遲點也沒問題呱!

I am also the "rather be cautious than sorry" type but I decided to opt out. No flu shot for me. I just wash my hands often.

I'm not a fan of MJ. His brothers are all over entertainment news these days because they are out promoting the movie. I heard MJ's children will appear in the movie. Now, knowing how protective he was with his children. He would never have agreed to that.

I would suggest that you consult the medical profession and other sources of information and then make an INFORMED decision regarding the flu shot(s). It is my understanding that the risks/benefits are different for each individual, depending on his/her age, medical history, etc.

If you are talking abt fads and popular culture, then I don't see any problem with being a 慢幾拍的傢伙.

新鮮兄:多聽多問沒有壞處,問完聽完可以多些資料,幫助做決定,“婆媽”是有用處有效,I don't mind to be 標簽是“婆媽”的男人。

Exile,exactly "rather be cautious than sorry". I have been cleaning hands very frequently ever since.

In the past I didn't take any traditional flu shot. It contains mercury so it prevents flu in one way but harms the person by mercury poisoning the other way.

I haven't seen the MJ movie yet so I didn't know MJ's children were in the movie.

Hari big brother, Unlike canada the flu shot(s) are not free in HK,except for some selected groups of seniors.

WE have to get the shot(s) at the clinics they are talking charging $700 to $1000 for each H1N1 shot and $300 to %500 for the traditional flu shot.

Their opinions may be influenced by business elements. Probably I will continue to be a "慢幾拍的傢伙"。
