A coffee group of alumni, all highly established in their respective careers, got together for a visit with their old university professor.

The conversation soon turned to complaints about the endless stress of work and life in general...

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went into the kitchen and soon returned with a large pot of coffee and an eclectic assortment of cups: porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal - some plain, some expensive, some quite exquisite.

Quietly he told them to help themselves to some fresh coffee. When each of his former students had a cup of coffee in hand, the old professor quietly cleared his throat and began to patiently address the small gathering... ''You may have noticed that all of the nicer looking cups were taken up first, leaving behind the plainer and cheaper ones. While it is only natural for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is actually the source of much of your stress-related problems! "

He continued...''Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In fact, the cup merely disguises or dresses up what we drink. What each of you really wanted was coffee, not a cup, but you instinctively went for the best cups... Then you began eyeing each other's cups....''

2008/1/3 與一班行山友出席喜宴,盡興而歸。這晚,先來一段新人為賓客精心炮製的《愛是這樣甜》人肉MTV大晒恩愛,簡直羡煞旁人。接著,新人以全套中式婚服出場,在監誓律師、新人家長及一眾親朋見證下,完成結婚儀式。近年的婚宴,似乎都免去「玩新人」的環節,充其量都只是要求新人當眾親吻了事。

起菜,第一道當然是乳豬,是傳統的車厘子眼那款。很好吃,皮薄而脆。更有兒時跟父母出席飲宴才有的雀巢!不過不是由芋絲造,而是麵條炸成,不過也忍不住吃了好幾片。之後的那條鮮魚,一上枱,就聞到一陣鮮魚的香味,魚肉也是鮮.嫩.滑的。至於炸子雞,皮脆,雞腿部位非常滑。不知是否天寒地凍的關係,竟然可以連伊麵也吃下。(上菜人員每位問要麵還是飯,服務不錯。)

最後,甜品還節,竟然是久違了的小白兔綿花糖!!!樣子可愛,是最地道的純綿花糖,不太甜。連紅豆沙也是有湯圓在內的。很久沒有吃過這麼具水準的喜宴了!一班朋友有講有笑,不經不覺就開懷地吃完一餐。

2008/1/1 早上市區氣溫只有10度,新界再低幾度,很冷。天文台於2007/12/30 發出入冬以來首個寒冷天氣警告,為大除夕添上一份冬意。這是1999年設立這個機制以來,最遲發出警告的一次。

上午幾經掙扎,走出溫暖的被窩。溜狗後,吃過自家製雜錦天使麵,看過動物紀錄片,下午安坐露台於和煦的陽光下看雜誌,很久沒有這麼悠閒過。其實時間日日也有24小時,只是自己如何安排。

2007/12/27 出版的 metropop 介紹了土耳其雪糕,讓我神遊返回1995年的土耳其之旅
