飛機上做甚麼體操?開玩笑...what, exercise in a plane cabin??



詩巫衛理中學老同學廈門相見歡 meeting of "old schoolmates" in Xiamen, China

 詩喬蓁,1954年衛理中學高中三畢業生,移居返回中國廈門.與張怡學妹相見歡. old schoolmates happy "re-union" in Xiamen, China. Hii is a senior middle three student in 1954, is Chang Yi's senior . they met in Xiamen recently.


金門 “蚵仔麵線”太可口了 Oysters noodle of Kinmen--sooooo... nice

 來到金門,不吃“蚵仔麵線”,你就走寶了. if you don't taste the "Oysters noodle" of Kinmen, what a pity. make every effort to try once.







由廈門遊金門 ferry to Kinmen of Taiwan from Xiamen of China

 ferry service up to international standard, clean, comfortable. 渡輪服務超好,清潔,舒適.



taxi of Kinmen, just like anywhere else, much expensive than published rate. not much taxi, they won't reduce fee. walk a few steps away, other taxi nearby, that will be cheaper. buses are mostly chartered by tour operators. 停在碼頭前的德士,收費較當局規定的高出30%.不願意減價,知道你們沒有選擇.不過,走出大門不遠,另有德士可以搭,較便宜.巴士車多是旅行社包車.

the only Foochow in Spaoh 實吧荷唯一福州人--鄭丁福

現年68歲的鄭丁福,原是詩巫巴拉當人.1944年出生的他,於21歲時(1965年)離開家鄉,乘內河貨船飄泊來到實吧荷,一住就是47載.他太太黃秀花,閩清上四都六墘頭人,也在當地逝世,並葬在華人義山.
He is the only Foochow dialect speaking in Spaoh, a predominant Chinese Hakka small town in the Betong Division of Sarawak, about 300km from the State Capital Kuching. Tang, now 68, left Sibu village "Paradon" in 1965.

實吧荷的傳統清明祭祖 traditional tomb festival in Spaoh, Betong

木中省的實吧荷,人口約有一萬七千人,主要是馬來人,內陸一點的是伊班人.華人只佔了非常的少數.過去估計華人人口有約500人,現在看來,是有減無增.
 差不多整百年來,當地以客屬河婆為主的華人,多數以傳統的方式來舉行清明祭祖儀式,至今不改.而且,在祭祀後,還將剩下的祭品公開拍賣,以籌經費供來年使用.

the tomb festival celebration of the Chinese in Spaoh, Betong, is of a very traditional way. as can be seen from the pictures below. Spaoh is about 300 km from Kuching by road. a small town with around 17,000 population, mostly Malay and Iban. Chinese only consist of around 500, decreasing as expected.
