又是睇過了整整個幾月的電影,還有印象就拿來寫一寫也是不錯。

話說故事主人公是個外交官,日本政府委派他到立陶宛當大使,時值烽火連天的二戰時期。

他在國外自稱 Sempo,因為外國人不懂得讀他的正確日文名字。當時波蘭遭到德國與俄國瓜分,猶太人處處受到逼害,他們只能不斷遷徙,從一個歐洲國家過境到下一個歐洲國家,箇中疲憊可想而知。

Radio Interview of Wong Ka Kui

Singing of Old Dancing Medley (昔日舞曲)

Interviewer: I remember when you guys were releasing this album, I was a new staff just joining the radio. That was the time when band culture was so popular.
Interviewee: Uh-huh.

Interviewer: Some said the image of your band is that of an underground band coming through the surface. But what is underground band?
Interviewee: As a matter of fact, all this while I do not acknowledge ours as an underground band.

Interviewer: You don’t see it that way.
Interviewee: It is just that if that is how people look at Beyond, I can’t help it. Not that I purposely want to debate whether we are an underground band or not.

Interviewer: Why do you say Beyond isn’t (an underground band)? Or you wanna tell us what an underground band is?
Interviewee: My viewpoint of underground is not their viewpoint of underground. Continue reading Radio Interview of Wong Ka Kui

Interviewers: May Chan, Loh Fai (transliterated)
Interviewee: Dr Joseph Sung, vice-chancellor of Chinese University of Hong Kong
Date: March 9, 2013

Interviewer: Good morning. (Good morning) Mr Loh, things changed a lot in ten years. It has been ten years since the outbreak of SARS epidemic. And for Hongkongers, the ten-year mark means differently to them. I remember ten years back we were interviewing Dr Sung, then serving at CUHK Department of Medicine & Therapeutics. When SARS broke out at the 8th floor of Prince of Wales Hospital, and we interviewed Dr Sung. And about same time ten years later, we are again interviewing him. But he is of different status today.

Interviewer: Today Dr Sung is the vice-chancellor of CUHK. Good morning, vice-chancellor. (Good morning, vice-chancellor)
Interviewee: Good morning to both of you.

Interviewer: Prof, on what matters do you feel very deeply, when looking back at SARS epidemic ten years ago?
Interviewee: Recalling ten years back, it was as if I had had a dream. Within such a short period of time, a large number of individuals fell ill, many among them were our own friends and colleagues. And there were medical staff members who died in the course of performing their duty. I saw Hong Kong society suffered from a severe setback. Looking back right now, it is as if something happened just yesterday.

Interviewer: Do you still recall the incident in these ten years? Even if you are not yourself recalling the matter, other individuals and media members would have mentioned it to you.
Interviewee: Yup. The matter is still much talked about among the public. And I myself still keep in touch with the patients back then, and some of them have become my friends. Some of our students fell ill during the outbreak, and some of them are now working as doctors or even consultants. Some of them would say:“Oh ya, back then I was lying on the hospital bed.” People still recall of those memories.
