仰光-大城小景

0


仰光曾被英國統治,所以街道上充滿英國建築,不說還以為自己身在歐洲呢﹗

如果所有緬甸人不出街,只有你一個在仰光街道上走,你一定以為自己在歐洲。因為緬甸的建築,極富英國殖民地色彩。有尖頂教堂,羅馬式的柱,英式鐘樓,還有歐洲經常見到的銅像雕塑,怎能令你沒有這個錯覺?

不過,唯一不同的,是這裏的生活落後,大部分建築都十分殘破,很久都沒有人翻新。而且街邊小販多,不過你卻不會花太多錢,原因有三。

第一,小販賣的多是以食為主,但食物太油膩,你會不敢進食。第二,所賣的日用品,都是些低檔時鐘或收音機、生锈的刀等等,比女人街的質素還要差。聽說這些貨物都是別國不要的次貨,連中國也不要,試問又怎買得下手?第三,二手書攤多,不說不知,緬甸人挺喜歡讀書的,通街都是二手書檔,不少當地人都會駐足觀看,雖然我沒有興報買,但不能不讚他們的好學精神。更令人驚奇的,就是連腳底按摩也有,就躺在街邊即時替客人做,大開眼界。

未來緬甸前,以為必定很多軍人駐守,隨時會被人鎮壓。然而,這裏很難才找到一個軍人,也沒有隨街擺\放鐵絲網陣。這裏只有一個地方有鐵絲網圍著,便是美國領事館,還要在一條街口前已封著道路。又不準別人影相,當我拿著相機行近領事館時,兩個守衛煞有戒事地行近,好像我是恐怖份子似的。在我看來,他們才是恐怖份子呢﹗

本以為這裏很多扒手,誰知這裏太平過中國,緬甸人的銀包很顯眼地吊在腰間,證明這裏甚少小偷,事實上,我連日來在緬甸,都沒有遇過扒手,反而在英國,卻被人扯背囊及大罵\”fxxking foreigners\”,難道這就是文明嗎?

Chee

My name is Chee. Add a "r" after the word, then it would become Cheer. This name is called by my friend in university and I like it very much. Why do I love this name? Easy. I always think cheer is important because life is limited and we should make every possible way to enjoy, play, and make ourselves happy. But, saying is easier than doing. Whenever you want to do one thing, something would happen and it will disturb what you are doing right now. You'll never guess what the thing would be. Especially a few people gather together, you'll never guess what they're thinking. More the people there are, more the mess it would be. I've learned the above lesson very very early, and I try not to mind what other's people thinking, but it's really really difficult. Today, I failed again. My friend made me unhappy. But I know I'll recover and back to my life again tomorrow after I had a good sleep. Maybe this is the way of escape since the problems haven't solved yet, but I believe there will be ways to solve the problems and you'll never believe that ways are not so complicated as you think. So cheer cheer cheer up, and life would become easy and happy. 「講左咁耐,都唔知大家明唔明講乜,不過唔明都唔緊要啦,做人難得糊塗嘛,又何必太在意我呢個傻婆講既野。」
