【立場新聞】一切由諾丁山開始

某個黃昏,妳一臉幸福地躺在公園的長櫈上哼唱:“She may be the face I can't forget, The trace of pleasure or regret, May be my treasure or the price I have to pay, She may be the song that summer sings, May be the chill that autumn brings, May be a hundred different things, Within the measure of a day...” 妳說,如果要選 Wedding Song List,《She》是妳在婚禮中必選的英文歌,不是因為全智賢《來自星星的你》,而是來自英國倫敦的《摘星奇緣》(Notting Hill)主題曲。

都是 Hugh Grant(曉格蘭特)這位英國型男惹的禍!他把奧斯卡金像獎最佳編劇、英籍作家 Richard Curtis 在上世紀寫下的幾部英式小品,包括《四個婚禮一個葬禮》、《摘星奇緣》、《BJ 單身日記》及《真的戀愛了》,其男主角的英式睿智、感性與幽默,以及中產英國紳士的優雅,發揮得淋漓盡致,幾乎叫全球女生都神魂顛倒。

Those were the good old days! 20 年晃眼過去,1999 年上映的《Notting Hill》仍是英倫品味愛情片的代表之一。對我來說,那些關於童話式愛情的憧憬,那些關於愛情的最美好回憶,其實與英國的大笨鐘、紅色電話亭、紅色圓筒郵箱、紅色雙層大巴士、炸魚薯條等統統無關,一切一切,彷彿由倫敦的高尚住宅區 Notting Hill(諾丁山)開始。

曾經,我也終日在倫敦做我的愛情白日夢,幻想自己是男版灰姑娘威廉(曉格蘭特飾),在 Notting Hill 裡的小書店,邂逅甜美親切的大明星安娜(茱莉亞羅拔絲飾),愛情一瞬間來襲,二人四目交投,我笨手笨腳、結結巴巴與妳相撞而倒瀉的英式奶茶,然後,像妳這樣被萬千寵愛的女明星竟然向我投懷送抱,深情的一吻、浪漫的約會、一起出席好友的聚會,突然失蹤又忽然出現,並告訴我,妳不過是個普通的女孩子,希望找到所愛的人,問我會否真心愛妳?

“I'm also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” 我,心如鹿撞……

男版灰姑娘穿上玻璃鞋,在 Notting Hill 這個休閒雅緻的英式小區上眾裡尋她千百度,找尋電影中那間簡樸的旅遊小書店、那座幸福藍色門的房子、那所爬滿翠綠籐蔓的紅磚小旅館,以及波希米亞式市集 Portobello market,裡面有着林林總總的手工藝品、珠寶、日用品、蔬果、古董、絕版黑膠唱片、銀器,還有那些散發着貴族衣櫃裡樟腦味的古著。最後,在樹影婆娑 Portobello Road 上走着走着,驀然回首,那人卻在燈火闌珊處。

就像電影有一幕,初相識的威廉與安娜深夜爬進人家的花園,看到草地上有一張長櫈,櫈背刻了一段字,上款寫着「獻給愛這花園的 June」,下款則寫着「永遠坐在妳身旁的 Joseph」— 妻子走了,丈夫在長櫈刻下鶼鰈情深的誓言。安娜凝視着櫈背的字良久,情不自禁地讚嘆:「原來有些人真的會長相廝守。」片末,懷着身孕的安娜回到那個花園,幸福地躺在長椅上,靠在威廉的大腿上。

The meaning of my life is She, She, oh she... 也許妳早已不相信愛情,也許我不是威廉,但妳肯定是我的安娜~ Surreal but nice!

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
