重操故業

離職不到三個月,又再重操故業,因為突然在倫敦發現,大量前殖民地政治人物縱影,今天與民主之父及副主席在Queensway的中餐廳「喜相逢」食中餐。

這間餐廳好得,價錢合理、服務一流、食物質素有香港水平,日後食中餐,真係要離開Leicester Square,改去Queensway。民主之父話,大班每次到倫敦都在這裡食飯,除了「喜相逢」外,「文興」的燒鵝都好靚,7、8鎊一隻(食個難食的Fish and Chips都要5鎊,付多兩鎊有燒鵝,咁梗係食燒鵝!)。
民主之父還講到40幾年前,在倫敦讀書是怎麼模樣:當年大家窮,沒有錢買燈,於是就買電線,便可以把天花板的燈拉近一點,方便晚上看書;當時一年學費及生活費只是720鎊、坐巴士是4P、鬼佬午餐肉是11p,餐餐煮午餐肉炒飯、放假搭巴士到當時仍很破落的Angel買菜...相比之下,現在我們去倫敦讀書幸福多了。
食餐靚飯、聊聊天、了解香港近況...一天又過大半。今天原本想讀書,一個SMS聯絡上了,於是就在中餐廳過了一個下午,在異地與相識朋友相聚,重好過屈在房內看書,讀少一天就算啦。
PS:回家途中,被差佬查身份證,話要做Secruity Control,問我今日做過乜,係邊度住。難得我的地址註冊仍未改,仍是Patrick家,希望唔好麻煩到佢。

Well, the "security control" you bumped into was very likely Home Office's operation to arrest illegal workers (especially those working in Chinatown / Chinese Restaurants). Usually they are not targeting HK people. Guess everything will be fine.

是呀,出外見朋友,好過呆在房間讀書。
書嘛,那時候都可以讀。

What happened at Four Seasons? It's my favourite restaurant! Really good roast duck, but pretty expensive for what should be a simple 'siu mei' meal.

I also experienced the "security control " during my 4-day-trip in London last year....i thought that they did it with "no reason"....just of "mo liu"!!!
