印度遊記(三) – 咖喱物語

27th May 2008 - 07:41am 遊記
說起印度﹐大部份人立即會聯想到咖喱。我在印度工幹的兩個月時﹐不少朋友問我是不是天天吃咖喱。很不幸﹐我真的是天天也吃咖喱﹐吃到差不多患上咖喱恐懼病。公司附近沒有其他餐廳﹐只好在飯堂與當地員工一起食叻喱。幸好晚餐可以入公司數﹐叫車去五星級酒店吃正常的食物﹐才不至於吃到反胃。剛到印度的第一個星期﹐我還不懂叫車到城中心吃晚餐﹐只好在宿舍附近找東西吃。宿舍雖說是印度豪宅﹐但始終不是在遊客區﹐附近除了正宗印度菜外﹐就只有印度化了的西餐和中餐。一連吃了五天印度菜﹐和偽裝成中西餐的印度菜﹐我再受不了咖喱的味道。於是在星期五下定決心﹐冒死搭三輪車去大酒店吃牛扒。後來發現除了塞車外﹐其實在印度搭車也很方便安全。…

魔幻王國系列的原作者C.S.Lewis是上世紀最具影響力的神學家﹐他的小說中充滿宗教意義和隱喻﹐改篇為電影也適合與教會朋友一同欣賞。去年我便是與世青節的團友一起看第一集﹐說好了第二集上映也要一起看﹐這次正好借這個機會大家出來聚舊。其實我對魔幻王國的興趣一般﹐覺得電影太過兒童向﹐可看可不看沒有所謂。不過既然與舊朋友見面﹐那一看也不妨﹐就當作增加主流文化的認識﹐畢竟電影是改篇自風靡西方小朋友的經典兒童故事書。…

玩具大戰 – 古天樂

24th May 2008 - 11:29am 書評
行書店時看見古天樂出書﹐我竟然二話不說就賣下來。古天樂唱歌差﹐演戲普普通通﹐ 雖說他幾靚仔﹐但我又不是妹妹仔粉絲﹐沒有任何理由買古天樂的書吧。豈料古天樂這本「玩具大王」﹐卻點正我的死穴讓我乖乖付鈔﹐皆因我也喜愛收藏玩具。我早已在報章知道古天樂個超級玩具迷﹐私人玩具博物館的藏品數目驚人。他寫書分享他收藏玩具的經驗心得﹐對我等小玩具迷來說﹐實在有他鄉遇故知的感覺﹐怎可以不用實際行動買書支持呢。…
