陶傑:香港不宜居住

香港不宜居住

星島日報 星島日報 – 2012年5月28日星期一上午6:30

(綜合報道)(星島日報報道)

女大學生不幸輕生,留下遺書,指香港太擁擠,「不宜居住」,字字辛酸。

《紐約時報》介紹美國攝影師Michael Wolf在香港拍的照片,但見密密麻麻、層層疊疊,貌如外星,美國人看了嚇得大叫,認為住在這樣的房子裏,人一定會發神經。

香港開埠之初,都說英國人看中維多利亞港水深港闊、背山環海,天然是一個商業要衝之地,但是,英國人也很懂得鑑賞,此地氣候溫暖宜人,火山、地震、海嘯的威脅一無;山林、海灘、漁港無所不包,全世界也難數得出幾個這樣的福地。英國人來殖民,都住在香港島上,依山修路,環境優美,連赤柱的英軍墳場,也清雅地令人流連,今天成為新人拍照的景點。

英國雜誌《Monocle》每年都評選「最適合生活」城市,條件包括市容潔淨、建築漂亮、環境優美、文藝蓬勃等,上榜的結果以北歐最多。世上的城市因人不同,有的適宜生活,有的只可用來賺錢。

因為生活,英文Life,不止是搵兩餐,還有滿足感官與心靈的需求,正如家居絕不止是「單位」,居住的環境也不應該只求有瓦遮頭,還要追求窗外的樹影,街頭的清風,在草地上曬太陽,樹下看野鴨戲水的一片和諧心境。

香港人的家居,四面都是牆,推不開窗,狹小幽閉,到處是噪音、光害,無一刻安寧,怎麼可能適宜居住?只是一個適合賺錢的地方,為了錢,只好犧牲其他,包括美和靈魂。 文:陶傑

right, HK is a place for earning but not living, however, this is the place we were born, our family, our friends, our networks, our histories…. all are related to the “rush” place! it’s not easy to leave it even we understand it’s not a perfect place for living, but we use to be!
