「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

秋天發黃枯黃的樹葉,落在在樹根部份,本來就會自然腐爛、分解、成為養份,再被樹根吸收,等到明年春天,樹枝上的嫰芽,就再次長出花朵、綠業、結菓、落葉,週而復始,遁環再遁環! 但自有了人類之後,長在人類社會中間的樹木,到了秋天落葉時,落葉卻被掃去清除得乾乾凈凈,泥土裡的養份,耗盡了後,樹木不能健康生長,人類就唯有加入一些人工的化肥,幫助樹木生長,破壞了生態。

記得前年秋天,剛巧在秋天探訪楓葉國的親戚,他們後園有間小木屋,屋裡面有兩個大木桶,據聞是上一手的本地白人屋主人,建來安放 composter (大木桶),讓每年秋天收集得的黃葉枯葉,自然腐爛、分解、成為養份,可以用來當肥料用。但因為腐化過程,發出惡臭,華人購買了房屋後,都沒有這個環保措施,總把枯葉放入需要錢買來的大紙袋,讓市政府負責收集 Yard Waste 的工人收去,明年春天,到冰雪融化了後,就需要人工化學施肥,好讓樹木草地一片綠茵。

Hari big brother, you are very welcome! I have read your unfinished work. I wish to point out there is higher tendency of getting assimilated 反被同化了。

I highly recommend "The Chinese in America" by Iris Chang. It was well written.

I am actually quite curious what HKers think of Chinese people overseas?

America isn't perfect but it is home to me after all. Just like HK to many of you, HK isn't perfect but it's home. As far as assimilation, I was told by some "real" Americans that immigrants can't really assimilate. We integrate. I digress. I know some second/third generation American born Asians who are still quite confused about their cultural and racial identities. Yes, there is loss. I believe you gain some and you lose some. As long as I'm happy, I don't care where I live.

果然是 ”上等人“啊!Madam Exile,

At this difficult times you are still affordable to go on a 9 day-vacation. I remember I said before,"the Chinese Americans are the last group of americans to go under."

They still retain some good DNA from their ancestors though they lived among the general americans and dreamt in english than in chinese.

As far as I recall, Iris Chang Shun-Ru committed suicide in 2004. I have not read her book "The Chinese in America" . Rumours said she was actually killed by CIA agents or being terrorized by CIA so much that she rather died than living.

Oh! Exile, assimilation?

that was my reply to haricot’s introduction of the concept 【生物擴散論】, people praised Canada for their multi-culturalism but said the USA is a crucible of culture(s).

Haha...nah, you've got to be kidding! I refuse to go under with or without Chinese DNA! I went on a 8-night cruise to Mexico. It was a lot of fun. I still feel like I am floating on water.

"The Chinese in America" is a must read for all Chinese living in America. Space, you must read quite a bit of conspiracy theory about the U.S. Yes, I heard the CIA theory too, also if you believe it, I heard she may have been killed by Japanese right wingers. Anyway what a loss.

Exile, cost for 8-night cruise to Mexico more than enuf for U to fly back HK for 7-night stay.

"The Chinese in America" is a must read for all Chinese living in America. SO I can be exempted.

Wikipedia said HER death involved CIA she left behind 3 notes.
