冬日的陽光II – 蕃茄濃湯 Winterlude II – Thick Tomato Soup with Eggplant and mushroom

心要安靜, 才能真心下廚
這是在靜修院的禪修.  兩人份.
蕃茄和茄子都慢火煎香, 才下小鎬,
平面鑊旁邊還放上切了片的白磨菇 後下.
慢火慢慢   出了濃湯, 小茴香 月桂葉
後放下煎好了的磨菇和昨晚剩下的薯仔.
灑下海鹽和黑椒粉末
一室   感恩

 

 

 

 

「豬朋狗友」不是貶詞是勇敢的老死 “Pigs” no longer a derogatory term.Check this video.

See the dramatic moment that a pig rushes in to save his friends life moments before slaughter.Farmed animals are highly intelligent, social animals that DO NOT WANT TO BE KILLED.Pigs form close bonds and greet each other by rubbing their noses together.Given the chance, they sleep nose-to-nose with their companions.Every year, around 70 billion land animals are sent to their deaths by the animal farming industry.By going vegan, YOU could help reduce this number by hundreds per year.https://veganuary.com/us/register/Video from Newsflare

看視頻, 「豬朋狗友」再不是貶詞, 而是勇氣和老死(好朋友)的代號. 很多時候我們從語文開始便在抹黑一些動物, 來支持/建構我們對牠們的歧視和廹害. 這些語文也入心入肺的控制了我們的思想和情緒, 鞏固了前者. 要改世界觀, 重組語文或重新定義是必需的. 你想到什麼中文裏以動物為內涵的貶詞嗎?
From this video, calling people “pigs” shouldn’t be a derogatory term anymore, but stands for bravery/real friends?. Meanings of words are constructed to reflect and reinforce the values/order of a society. Their power lies in their ability to sink into our subconsciousness which effects to control our body and mind.
To instigate change, language cannot be left off the plate — we have to re-define, re-image or reject what have been circulating. You have some of these words or phrases in mind?

不是說好不要被複製的嗎?

反”廣場”舞, 是空間衝突, 更是文化和階級衝突, 扯平和解決, 也可能只有文化, 不是權力…..

衝決行動的原因若是怕香港變成一處沒有那麼好的地方, 便不要用那個地方的方法/邏輯/精神辦事….因為這已是將更深層, 更具破壞性的復製. 即使表面上事情獲得解決了, 但這城的文化底氣或軟件已被斷送, 跟那兒再沒不同, 只餘下面表的硬件與浮光,

“大媽”在大陸是扁詞, 指不好看, 沒文化的中年女人, 我不愛這讓標籤和歧視, 重用這詞已是將那兒的視角和文化在這兒複製, 談不上文化上的抗衡, 文革式的衝激更是….

港人愛健美, 健美中心和瑜珈大行其道, 與其將這些沒去過/沒錢去 Physical, California 等地方健美上aerobic , 或許可以將她們的文化和經濟劣勢的人批鬥, 逼走, 將她們更邊沿化, 何不找健美操的人去領舞

一段時間後, 由她們自己決定以後怎麼跳, 那兒跳…

那兩個一罵慢必的陽具妒羨女人

這 兩位疑是女性好崇陽….覺得無J好賤, 瞓低被人FK好賤, 男生女相好賤, 睇得出佢哋好崇拜有J嘅人..可惜佢地恨唔到有JJ, 於是覺得有J唔用嘅人抵死 (其實佢哋點知), 呢類人的情況有名你叫的—— 陽具妒羨(penis envy)….阿Freud話, 呢D心理係是女性自卑、低劣感, 和精神困擾的根源, 跟住鍾意親近陽具, 覺得陽具是權力中心…. 係咪好似呢兩個人呢?

當然, 我哋唔洗信哂阿Freud, 另外一個人Karen Horney話(what a surname), 邊有女人羨慕嗰條嘢, 係 Continue reading

動物不是商品

動物不是商品, 北美有城市已禁買賣…只能認養….香港不是要超英趕美嗎? 另外: 那麼為基層與動物著想,為這些友伴們爭取:SPCA 延長正常門診時間,  2. 公共交通乘車時段   3.公園可使用時間, 4.公屋居民與友伴公屋評核試啦…..

ref: 民建聯議員陳恆鑌認為發牌門檻不應設得太高:「假如我哋將門檻有咁高扯咁高,去到最後呢,可能啲基層市民、弱勢社群,佢真係好想搵隻寵物陪佢嘅,但由於門檻咁高呢,咁就引致個價格非常之昂貴….因為你咁高門檻丫嘛,咁相對個價格可能都會非常昂貴,咁我都非常之擔心。」

恩怨情天 Manon des sources (1986) : 對錯只是關係的遠近?

這個故事重覆了很多希臘悲劇的元素, 最後的懲罰和懊悔, 沒有超越血緣而來的道德批判, 不談公義. 劇中鄰居因水源給堵著死了, 但的過錯只是不知道他是自己人而以.  50年代的故事, 80年代的電影 , 是否我們不能回頭論斷過錯? 還是電影因為大部份人都只能透過親密關係思考對錯, 所以只能這樣? 但如此述事真的能帶來社會改變嗎? 還是忠於故事便行? 這些我不知道, 所我不懂給這電影打星. 在這兒, 堵水是錯, 只因為堵死了自已人, 卻沒有水源不應私有, 私有的慨念可以死很多人. 這裏的村民因為不知受害者是自已人, 包括女主角和女主角的父親, 因為不知道他們的媽媽是那裏的人, 因為保守的農村風氣, 和戰爭有來的通訊障礙, 她等不了小兵下崗回來, 帶著肚子走了. 於是女主角的父親當年拖家帶口回來, 沒有人告訴他龍眼在哪, 親眼目睹主謀堵水殺人者, 也從沒有揭發罪行, 因為苦主是外來的人.

When lives are as cheap as those throw-away T-shirts

How my heart clenches this Sunday morning….Bangladesh…the place I first found children could be adorable…those big eyes with the longest eyelashes ever looking at me and little hands holding on my hands and sleeves as I walked through a flash flood torn village…..It was so many years ago and where are they now? Street urchins and orphans struggled through and grew up…just to be crushed? I could not bear this thought……Yes, what could we do? so many years of so called poverty alleviation and development works? what for? To cheer myself up, I might want to end with a happier note, otherwise……In support of the striking dockworkers, Hong Kong citizens chipped in a staggering HKD 7.5M to wage war against de tycoon of the city…….Awakening and justice starts from wherever that is closest to us……May power be to the people…ALWAYS. [sorry, Simon i have jammed in your post….for a place I once worked hard to mobilize the people of HK to support and changed the international aid policy back then.]
