咖啡大爆炸

「拿,陳太,去英國升學最緊要咩呢,要Edwin自己學到咩叫做獨立。英國人好重視自我獨立生活,Edwin去到要自己處理家務,煮飯洗衫都係自己搞掂。」

 

這些說話,對一個教育者而言是老生常談,像天氣先生日日說「室內氣溫22度,相對濕度百份之七十五,間中有雨。」一樣。

 

但所謂知易行難,容易說出口的話未必知道何解,天氣先生都不一定知道22度即是幾凍。而昨日就發生了一件令我無比尷尬,甚至想再回英國讀多幾年書的事…

 

話說中午出席完一個公開場合,回公司繼續拼搏。我不是一個咖啡癡,不是一杯接一杯啡不離口的人,但真係眼瞓到飛起,開了一包剛從網購網站買來的即沖咖啡提一提神。低B的我用鮮奶沖咖啡,還將杯放進微波爐叮…

 

「嘩!微波爐大爆炸!」全場同事靜哂,目瞪口呆,以為真的大爆炸。「哈哈哈,腦細係咪搞笑呀你!」「快啲抹返乾淨啦點叮飯呀!」「低能仔!」唔…sorry囉。我好想抵賴,這種低給錯誤純粹是因為我太眼瞓,沒精神所以才出事。但此時此刻,在眾同事的恥笑聲中我實在一句話都說不出,只是好想搵窿捐…

 

這個故事雖然出不出甚麼大道理,但應該足夠告訴各位自立的重要性。廿幾歲人,熱咖啡仍放進微波爐叮這種事說出來都覺得羞恥…不過,我偏要說出來,學似越王勾踐,要記住自己的屈辱,下次不會再犯。

 

陳太,Edwin,我對你唔住…去英國記得要學識沖咖啡,唔好好似我咁…

#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.
