月缺月圓

想起六七月時份已經在電視瘋狂看見月餅廣告,還在想「有無咁快中秋呀?」但所謂一年容易又中秋,話咁快聽已經中秋節。在家庭觀念極重的華人社會,中秋是繼農歷新年後另一個以家庭團圓為主題的節日。而這種日子往往是我最慚愧的時候。

 

「仔呀,今晚食飯喎,你留咗枱未?」

 

「忙緊,晏少少book,陣間講。」

 

「早少少呀,今晚正日多人。」

 

「得啦得啦,做緊野忙呀,陣間講啦。」

 

「仔呀……」「嘟…嘟…嘟…」

 

這個對話不知repeat了多少年。出社會工作後,我早就將中秋節之類的節日拋諸腦後。男人搵食賺錢緊要,唔通日日六點半準時收工返屋企食飯?這種所謂拼搏心,或者說是以繁忙為藉口,令我幾年都沒有和家人吃一餐齊齊整整的中秋節飯。Until last year。

 

「喂細佬?阿媽喺QE,你得唔得閒過一過嚟?」九月一號晚我收到家姐電話。

 

「下?做咩?整親?有冇咩事?你唔好嚇我」

 

「你冷靜啲先……過咗嚟醫院先講。」

 

我十萬火急即刻揸車去QE會合家姐,上到病房見到我媽。不過唔使驚,她不是在床上,而是在床邊。

 

「仔呀,過嚟。」她收起平時的精神弈弈。「呢個係五姨婆,你應該未見過。過嚟打聲招呼啦。」

 

我第一次見五姨婆。媽說她仔女都不在香港,全部赴外國做生意,甚少回港。早兩年腰痛入院檢查得知自己有癌症,怕家人擔心甚至沒有通知他們。

 

「我可能都未必過到呢個中秋架啦……」五姨婆安祥地說,好像已經明白自己的處境,也看透了紅塵。「喬仔呀,記得多啲陪屋企人,食餐飯,唔好第時後悔呀。」我聽到媽在背後的啜泣聲,腦裡突然空白一片。

 

回想起自己以前每年都hea著家人,好日唔返屋企食飯,其實為乜?講出口是為了事業打拼,實際上是怕煩,take everything for granted,覺得食唔食飯not a big deal。好可惜,齊人不是「老奉」,幸福也要自己找緊。月缺雖可以重圓,人缺卻永無法團圓。就嚟中秋節,將藉口放下,you know what to do.

#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.
