九記詩詞 – 4

水調歌頭

紅葉隨風舞,北雁早知秋。青山碧水依舊,惆悵幾時休。猶憶瑤台共話,星下花間載酒,缱绻夜溫柔。

枕簟餘香透,倩影繞心頭。鬢先白,人漸廋,恨悠悠。 

今宵明月高掛,獨自上西樓。仰望廣寒宮闕,祇羨姮娥后羿,舊夢可長留。回首魂消處,一醉了千愁。

 

----- 陸慶奇

九記詩詞 – 3

一年明月今宵多,把酒對影邀嫦娥,嫦娥貴體安康否?千年天上怎麼過?

嫦娥苦笑整衣裙,雙瞳剪水鬢橫雲,自言祇剩朱顏好,物換星移日月新。

廣寒宮榻玉殿危,玉兔離巢吳剛老,仙桂巳枯八百年,殘枝搖曳迎荒草。

當初一念去人間,丹藥雖靈不可還,碧海青天傷夜夜,九宵幽帳意闌珊。

嫦娥勸汝休嘆息,人間慘事更淒惻,老病生死原已慣,天災地劫誰能測?

況復換朝戰亂頻,新魂舊鬼黃昏泣,哀鴻遍野尋常見,漢唐盛世如電閃。

治世時稀亂世多,滄海迷家王謝燕,古來百姓最堪憐,幾回舜日配堯天?

海不揚波疑幻相,於今大國也言兵,嫦娥休怨蟾宮玻,那及蟾宮享太平?

嫦娥聽罷無言語,月墮星河天際明

九記詩詞 – 2

各位學長,老胡代現代牛郎(即富二代)與我代織女(即東莞工廠妹)曾用宋詞對話三次,現把原詞附上,博诸君一笑。

                                                             ----- 陸慶奇

現代牛郎,織女對詞

(詞牌:鵲橋仙)

牛郎(胡國亨代寫)

千秋七夕,万年遗恨,岁岁欢愉一度。 空房夜夜苦煎熬,况秀色,人間无数。      

恩终义断,情深缘淺,此后天涯歧路。劝君珍重觅新人,切莫等、美人遲暮。 

織女(陸慶奇代寫)

情絲已矣,今逢佳節,何必重提前度!知君薄倖又風流,不怨你、閱人無數。

與君偕老,恕難做到,從此簫郎陌路。南來孤燕把家還,念老父,年將入暮。

牛郎

情缘既逝,相会无由,何必谎言一度!知君早已有新人,愛巢里,春光无数。

假情无益,闲言休讲,此后各行各路!有空不要发电郵,我不管,晨曦日暮

織女

命徒多蹇,驚聞噩耗,苦我成為過度。濃情變淡要分離,是天意,甘從命數。

舊歡如夢,新緣尚待,唯有歸家舊路。何須謬論毀貞名,管得你、與誰朝暮?

牛郎

絲连藕断,心怀比翼,别后日如年度。當时误信奸人言,害得你,淚流无数。 

君贞似月,郎情如海,放我一条生路!生生世世誓不离,又豈止今生朝暮!

織女

魂消夢斷,風高雨驟,感嘆芳華虛度。深閨寂寞有誰知?解不盡、愁絲無數。

燭殘酒冷,爐空絃缺,祇怕情埋異路。有緣隔世得重逢,便可以、朝朝暮暮。

九記詩詞 - 1

前排七夕, Thomas 及 Henry 對節日都有感而發, 發乜呢? 發詞興囉. 齊齊奉上靚詞一兩首, 比我哋班64同學欣賞. Anthony 潘漢雄亦寄來兩首詩, 佢上個月行山頂遇大雨, 太平山下非常之'蒙蒙查', 想起目前香港政治環境一片灰暗, 故又係有感而發啫.

Prague, Czech Republic

We always wanted to see Prague as we heard a lot about it over the years but for various reasons, we did not get to go until this year when we were to go to a cruise to Iceland and Norway.  Since we were already in Europe, we made a little detour prior to going on the ship.  Everyone thought it was one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, and we were not disappointed.  It probably helped when we had perfect weather the four days we were there and we picked a very centrally located hotel where we could walk everywhere.

Iceland

Iceland was not in our radar for travel plans even a few years ago.  The first time it really came to our attention was when they had their bank crisis in 2008 and then the two volcanic eruptions in 2010 made world news.  We even spent a restless night in Milan then as we were due to fly via London back to Toronto the next day but the volcanic ashes were playing havoc again and there was threat that the English airports might yet close for the second time.   In hindsight, the Icelanders thought the eruptions were a classic example of “blessing in disguise” because people started to take notice of them and the natural disaster put Iceland on the map.  Today, tourism became the number 2 industry right after fishing and the economy for this island country with 320,000 people is bouncing back.

While not too many people will be interested to visit Iceland in the winter when the days are really short and the snow season can run from September to June in some areas, seeing it in the summer can be very pleasant.  Midnight sun, active volcanoes, craters, lava fields, glaciers, waterfalls, hot springs and geysers are not sights found everywhere.  Since sixty per cent of its population reside in the capital, Reykjavik, in the south west, the rest of the country is just miles and miles of unique and expansive landscape.  Spending leisurely time roaming the country makes a good and relaxing holiday.

From The Pacific To The Atlantic - Part 2

THE ARSE END OF THE WORLD

An ex-Prime Minister of Australia had colourfully described Australia as situated at the arse end of the world. This is not a respectful way to refer to the country he loves dearly but most Australian would agree with him when it comes to traveling overseas from Australia. It will easily take up to 26 hours in total if one includes the arrival at the airport from one end of the journey to another and the transit time midway for refueling. Given a chance, most Australians would spend more than 4 weeks abroad to maximise the time away from the country. Anything less than 3 weeks will not be a worthwhile exercise. A couple from Adelaide whom we acquainted in the second half of our tour would have spent 10 weeks in total by the time they arrive home. Similar Magdalen and I would have spent 7 weeks overseas by the time we arrive Sydney in early June.

BARCELONA

Just as we have allowed 3 days in Venice before we embarked on our cruise ship, we have earmarked the same number of days to tour Barcelona before we took the train to Madrid to join our land-tour of Spain and Portugal. We had high expectations of what we could get out of the Catalon capital and we were not disappointed. When the pier shuttle dropped us off at the start of the main pedestrian street, La Ramblas, the city had just woken up in the morning of May 11. It was a Saturday and the part pedestrian, part two single one-way lane vehicular street was beginning to fill up with people and traffic after a late Friday night - early 4 AM Saturday party. The locals came to the market to shop for fresh fish, fruits, grocers and vegetables and the tourists were lining up for their tapas, beer, wine and drinks. There were restaurants and ice cream stalls as well as artists and painters drawing portraits and caricatures for visitors as well as street performers posing either as statures, jugglers or clowns and musicians of all kinds busking for money along the one and a half kilometre pedestrian street. In fact, the street was complete with an 18th century opera house and a castle which houses a museum with many side streets that make the tourist lost in a wonderland. We quickly left our luggage at our hotel just off the main street and joined in the crowd, taking video clips of every aspect of the rustle and bustle of the street.

From The Pacific To The Atlantic - Part 1

A SECOND BITE OF THE CHERRY

In April and May this year, my wife and I took our second trip from Sydney which crossed the hemispheres from south to north and east to west crossing the globe cutting across the South Pacific all the way to the North Atlantic in London. Our first trip was made 19 years ago when we took our children except for the older son who was in University from Sydney to Beijing and then made an 'excursion' from Beijing to London to begin our 9 countries land tour of the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, the Vatican, France and back to London, Beijing and Sydney. Even in today's jet speed travel, it would have taken a whole day for the journey but we were wiser this time and traveled both ways with a break in Hong Kong to get rid of the jet lag.
Our experience this time was more rewarding too as we have become more seasoned travelers. We have covered cities more thoroughly and learned a lot about many nationalities and cultures than last time even though the walking tours were quite tiring with our advancing age but we have found that more things do get better in age as we have become more knowledgeable. Including Hong Kong and China, we have covered 11 countries this time, transversing Italy, Greece, Turkey, the Vatican, France, Spain, Gibraltar, Portugal and the UK. By the time we arrive Sydney we have spent just over 7 weeks so we weren't rushed around like we were almost two decades ago and had time to digest what we saw along the way.
