浮泊人生,心繫慕光

 

在2020年全球大爆發之Covid-19 肺炎疫情下, 無論你身處何方, 相信對每一個人而言,都有不同程度的影響;由於我兩個女兒長居英國,母親却長居香港,為了把握多與家人相聚機會,多年來的我,選擇了遊走居住這兩地路向,然而在過去大半年,這路向受阻了,英國疫情爆發得相當嚴重,我亦只有深居家中,簡約外出去抗疫,自從榮升婆婆後,能夠每天協助女兒照顧年幼的孫女,這事日漸成為我生活上的一窩心。

在天朗氣清及疫情穩定下 ,昨天我走訪了住在英國肯特郡一位昔日任教慕光中學的盧錦波老師。今次的會面,是在盧Sir居住之小鎮Sittingbourne一户外餐廳,盧Sir 是四十多年前,在慕光教過我地理科的老師,今次能夠有緣再與他相聚,實在太開心,大家一見面就有講不完的往事分享,我作為慕光現屆校友會委員,當然也把握好這機會,代表各校友向老師問好之餘,也順道作一個暢談訪問,希望讓各校友更深認識老師的人生。

原來老師是在1975年入職慕光,主要教地理和英文科,在慕光任教達8年之久。

60/70年代,老師在成長、求學與教學生涯中亦很戲劇化。他自小就和家人一起住在旺角區,小學時他就讀廣東道官立小學,盧爸爸是從事海上運輸業,但老師却偏偏是家中唯一受暈船浪困擾的孩子, 升中時期 為著要克服這弱點,他於是刻意揀選了一間位於港鳥區之中學【皇仁書院】就讀 , 迫使自己每天都要有乘坐船隻返學習慣,經過多年,他終於能克服這暈船浪問題。
聽到這令人真佩服,年紀小小的他 已學懂面對困難時,不會退縮,要有克服的心,我也不得不給他一個like。

想不到在中學會考當年,盧Sir 因太專注拍拖而忽略了學業 , 成績未如理想, 未能原校升讀中六,於是他轉至利馬竇書院讀GCE 中六,在這期間, 他用自修生名義報考中文大學,结果被中文大學的地理系取錄了 , 1967年 他入讀位於港島區盤咸道中文大學聯合書院 。1971年大學畢業,因當時社會經濟不景 ,找到一份理想工作 並不容易 , 而他人生第一份當教職工作, 是位於遙遠之新界區 上水建德公立學校 , 當小學教師,他猶記得在面試被錄用那天 ,正正是8號颱風襲港,他却是從風雨水中揭開人生事業, 賺取當年的工資是每月900元。由於一直渴望教中學,及有向上爬的心態, 未幾,他就轉往元朗錦田伯裘中學任教。1975年他正式入職慕光,任教上下午班地理和英文,直至1983年,之後他再轉往北角桂華山中學任教, 2006年正式從教席上退下來作退休生活。

盧Sir選擇執教鞭為終身職業的主因,原來始於在會考那一年,他數學科不及格,在中六那年他作自修生,為幫補生計,他兼職為低年級學生補習數學科, 在這教人學習的期間,他自覺很享受當中的無限樂趣,同時間也增長了自己很多學科上知識,因而抱著挑戰自己 來定下目標,結果在高考數學科獲得 A級成積,故此這也啓發了他要當上教師作為理想終生職業。

在慕光短短8年間,最深刻印象的就是結識了一班志同道合的老師們,當年大家早午晚都一起,生活融合,現在大家雖然天各處一方,但仍會保持聯繫。

老師一出社會工作不久,很早便結婚及組織家庭, 因此現時的兒女已長大成人,也建立了個人穩定事業,分別定居在英國和日本。盧Sir 和太太,自從2018年起便從香港遷居來英國 與兒子一起生活, 但喜歡四處遊歷的他,亦間中往日本逗留數月,探望女兒, 也有回港與昔日老友相聚。

老師對於子女的教育,亦採取開明及自由方針, 鼓勵年青人多些向世界視野出發,閱讀多些不同類型資訊,多加思考和分析,
不斷充實個人知識。對於退休生活,老師常掛在嘴邊,生活上我很充實,從不覺納悶,原來他喜愛音樂、繪畫和閱讀, 在退休後,他很享受每天都有發揮機會的生活模式 ;另一方面,他因對於花草樹木很有認識,在退休後,在香港亦曾當上導賞員,於西貢區之“伸手助人協會老人渡假中心”服務 , 在此機構亦當上義工多年。

談到這裏,老師手上拿起一本他最近半年在家繪畫的創作,說是要送给慕光校友會作留念,真想不到老師至今仍然這般熱情,我的內心不其然也因他而產生一股暖流。老師對今天聚會,他亦很高興見到我的家人,令我感到很温馨及有四代同堂的感受,但無耐縱使此刻談得歡暢,却仍有各自分别回家的一刻,寄望疫情快些過去,在不久將來,能夠再一次約老師相聚。

【文憑試放榜 – 慕光的喜悅 】

慕光英文書院應考本屆文憑試同學成績優異,再一次創造佳績,祝願大家有美好的發展,成就末來夢想。

今屆亦有一位成績傑出學生,這名學生是前年由福建泉州來港就讀的學生,在短短3年,她克服了語言及學習的困難,除中文科獲5**外,數學科亦獲5*,其他英文、通識、物理及化學亦獲得5,她希望稍後進入港大、中大或科大就讀商科,我們在此祝願她得償如願。

 

2020 You have a role in the world

You have a role in the world

You have a role in the world

 

It is a moment of truth, this world is chaotic, dangerous, exciting, evolutional, and opportune. You are chosen to change the world but the challenge would crash you before you could achieve your goal. Fortunately, there is a superman inside you to lead the way. Many people went through a similar journey to a successful life.

 

 

Charles Dickens quoted in A Tale of Two Cities "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair."

 

Dickens loved reading since he was a little boy but did not receive a formal education. His father was locked up due to the failure to repay the debt when Dickens was 12 years old. For 2 years, he worked in a factory 10 hours a day to support his family. Upon his father's release, they moved to Camden Town and Dickens attended Welling House Academy for 2 years.

 

Soon after that, he joined his cousin to become a freelance reporter at age 16. He wrote articles for London lawyers to circulate within their common circle. When Dickens was 20 years old, he worked as a political journalist in reporting on Parliamentary debates. He gained public attention at age 24 with a serial publication of The Pickwick Papers. His passion for editorial and writing strived him to write many famous novels in the era of Queen Victoria.

 

About the same time, a young Naturalist, Charles Darwin freshly graduated from College joined the voyage of the Beagle - vessel HMS Beagle to explore the coastline of South America.

 

Young Darwin conducted the routine work to produce accurate nautical charts showing navigational and sea depth information for the navy and commerce. Young Darwin was curious, energetic, patient, and self-motivated. He convinced the captain to allow him to spend most of that time on land investigating geology, making natural history collections, and collecting botanical specimens. Darwin kept careful notes of his observations and theoretical speculations. In cliffs near Punta Alta of Argentina, he made a major find of fossil bones of huge extinct mammals, indicating recent extinction with no sign of climate change or catastrophe. He observed several types of the mockingbird. Although they belonged to the same family they looked different from island to island. All the discoveries raised the question to Darwin and he was so desperate for answers. Despite his findings made young Darwin a celebrity, his theory was not accepted by the scientist circle.

 

Darwin did not stop working on his belief, the Theory of Natural Selection and Evolution. He went on a long literature battle with his peer and his career went ups and downs. At the lowest point of his life, being in financial hardship, poor health, and the death of his baby son, he struggled to stay strong. In 1859, 23 years after the voyage of Beagle, with help from his friends, Darwin published "On the Origin of Species" laying out these 2 theories proved unexpectedly popular and well accepted by the scientific world. Darwin is one of the important scientists in human history.

 

About Century later, a boy was born to an unmarried couple. They could hardly raise a child due to financial hardship so this one-month-old baby was adopted by a couple, Clara and Paul Jobs. Clara and Paul named this baby boy Steve. Steve Jobs was never a straight-A student but Paul promised Steve college education. Steve Jobs went to Reed College for 6 months but didn't like most of the subjects. He did not want to waste his parents' hard-earned money so he turned into an underground student dropping in some creative classes while at night sleeping on the floor of some friend's dorm or apartment so he could only spend money on food but nothing else. For 18 months, Jobs enjoyed his learning schedule but he chose to move on. He left college and worked at Atari for a year but didn't like it.

 

Jobs sold his beloved Ford Minivan and successfully convinced his childhood friend, Steve Wozniak to sell his HP calculator to start up a small company- Apple Computer. They had no clue to any business plan yet but Wozniak simply focused on the prototype of Apple I computer while Jobs aggressively met customers to persuade them to place the order. In three years, Apple Computer hit the sales of US $139 million. Jobs had his vision of products and never compromised. Once he came to a decision, he worked relentlessly to promote it. Jobs went through a lot of ups-and-downs but he believed he could change the world and he did it. The rest is history.

 

On the other side of the earth, one of the world-class billionaire, philanthropist, Li Ka-Shing didn't have a cherishable childhood. His father was a school principal and that was the only proper education he had in his young life. Due to poverty, his family moved to Hong Kong and he started working ever since. His father's life cut short when Li Ka-Shing was only 15 years old. In his sickbed, his father gave Li Ka-Shing the last word which set the framework for his success in the future. Li Ka-Shing always bears his father in mind so he follows his guideline: Don't rely on others; stay self-sustainable to support your own; stay strong and don't lose courage in downtime; to be humble and don't be overconfident in the uptrend. Of course, Mr. Li Ka-Shing has his secret weapons for his tremendous success in the business world which is a highly intelligent, hard-working, sense of perfection, and maybe the sense of insecurity from his childhood keeps him saving humongous reserve. The touching story never ends here.

 

In 1951, Elsie relocated to Hong Kong with her husband William Elliott, a missionary to Plymouth Brethren church in England. The couple lived in an illegal apartment in a ghetto community in Wong Tai Sin. Elsie was shocked by the poverty, corruption, and injustices there. Due to her sympathy towards Hong Kong society, she became disenchanted with her husband's rigid Protestant faith; actively involved in social issues.

 

The refusal of their church came to a breaking point when she spoke up for the Hong Kong situation during the church assembly. The church did not permit social activism so she was deeply offended, felt outrageous. Finally, she decided to left the church, divorced her husband and sadly lived in a kitchen in a Kowloon Walled City tenement. Elsie's strong belief supported her skinny body figure to carry on the fight for other's opportunities. She was so determined to help the children from poor families.

 

In 1954, Elsie founded Mu Kuang English School for poor children near Kai Tak. It started with 30 pupils in an old army tent. For a year, she lived on little else but bread and water to support the school running. At last, she was employed at Hong Kong Baptist college as an English and French teacher but she still insisted to run Mu Kuang under her wings. Andrew Tu was hired to run the school as the principal where they worked closely ever since. In 1985, this couple officially married.

 

Besides running the school, Elsie believed government policy would majorly affect people's life so she was politically active. She was elected for the first time to the Urban Council in 1963, which heavily dealing with public health, recreation, native culture, food hygiene, street hawking, and food market planning. When Elsie was reelected the second term in 1967, she lobbied with other councilors to have Chinese recognized as an official language. Being a native British, she fell in love with Hong Kong people and the city which strived her to fight so hard for their rights.

 

While helping homeless people for a shelter, she was bothered by the culture of protection fee. Street hawkers back then had to pay a protection fee to gangster and police force so there would be a chance for them to sell merchandise and foods to local people.

 

Madam Elsie campaigned so hard to stop such underground practice undoubtfully rocked the boat of the beneficiaries and the powerful people. However, her act was later credited with leading to the establishment of ICAC in 1974. This commission has changed Hong Kong in a big positive way culturally, demographically, economically and politically.

 

Gabriel Ng was an elite student because of his hard work. He spent most of the time studying and focused on higher education. He made up his mind to serve the medical field while he was a middle school student. With his high score, he got into the Polytechnic Physical Therapy program. He was hired even before his graduation. The job was good but it didn't stop him from getting advance knowledge. He later studied aboard in Australia and finished with a doctorate.

 

For the passion of passing on his knowledge, he went back to Polytechnic to be a Professor in the Therapy department. There are thousands of students in the medical field would like to thank him for his lecture. He was a dedicated mentor to his students.

 

Bertha Ngai was a popular singer in school. She competed from school to school and performed with the guitar sometimes. It might not be a traditional career but Bertha just loved doing it so much. After middle school, she went on a countless audition and a radio station offered her a job. Of course, it was fun in the beginning but also stressful because of long working hours, irregular shifts, and numerous peoplerelated issues. Her persistence finally paid off, she held many radio talk shows, music program, even participated in TV and movie acting.

 

Her colorful life paused when she married and migrated to Canada. She dedicated all the time to her family, taking care of kids. Gradually, her family and kids settled in the community, later, she joined the local radio station to host some programs. Of course, her family and children are always on the top priority, working seems to be her interest and own enjoyment.

 

Jimmy Au Yeung used to criticize people from the so-called Band One school. These students make no difference from his middle school in terms of learning. Jimmy was an average student always with a signature smile and a nerdy look. He was friendly but just not so popular.

 

He was good with Mathematic so he got into an engineering program in Polytechnic. Later he worked in a major Bank I.T. department. At night, he studied hard for his degree program which led to his promotion. He was granted the opportunity to lead the department so he traveled a lot to other countries to set up the system. It gained him a lot of experience in the working field and connecting people.

 

Due to health issues, he chose to quit and migrate to Toronto, Canada. With his sound experience in I.T., he was hired by IBM in Toronto. There were a lot of compliments and recognition from customers and co-worker but Jimmy received a better offer from the City so he leaves IBM to work for the local government.

 

Throughout his career, Jimmy met so many talented people from Band One school, renowned University, Ivy League college, but he never hid the fact that he completed his middle school in Mu Kuang. He proved himself capable of his ability, hard work and intelligence.

 

Professor Gabriel Ng, Radio host Bertha Ngai, and IT specialist Jimmy Au Yeung are all alumni to Mu Kuang English School. They outperform many students from Band One school due to their belief in themselves.

 

Mu Kuang is the breeding ground for a lifetime warrior. Most of the students in Mu Kuang are from grassroots without any privilege. It has already laid the foundation for upward momentum. Madam Elsie Tu gave up everything, the church, her husband for her belief- equality. She truly believed helping children from poor families was to provide them a place, a chance for their education. She went through all the hardships and challenges to found Mu Kuang. For 66 years, it is proven her belief 110% correct. Our alumni all over the world quietly contribute to their communities.

 

Don't let others label you. Don't let anyone else define you, you define yourself. Let's not worry about your bad situation, it will pass very soon. There are tons of opportunities around the corner, just keep moving and you will see them. Only the sky is the limit, your imagination is the key to your future. You will be proud of being one of the Mu Kuang alumni one day.

Introduction of author : 

Simon Yu was an alumni of Mu Kuang English School who had migrated to the United States and lived in the bustling metropolis of New York for several decades.   He has always been concerned about Hong Kong where he grew up, especially the Mu Kuang English School which was created by Superintendent Elsie Tu.  Hong Kong is now in the midst of the epidemic, and he is very concerned about the younger brothers and sisters who are studying at Mu Kuang.  He wants to encourage them. Therefore, the Mu Kuang alumni association invited him to write an article as an expression of sharing his motivation.  We also hope that the other alumni will be inspired by this sharing to contribute more to the alumni association.  If any alumni who has a manuscript, please don’t hesitate to email it to us.  Our email address : alumni@mukuang.edu.hk

2020 接到【醫護口罩】一刻,暖在心窩

接到【醫護口罩】一刻,暖在心窩

接到【醫護口罩】一刻,暖在心窩

 

過去多年春節,我Constance例必從英國飛往紐約走一趟,在嚴寒的季節,加上肺炎疫情橫掃多個城市,但亦不會打亂我今年春節之行,只想趕在農曆正月十五前親手給兒子一個幸運紅封包。

 

兒子在紐約的工作相當忙碌亦抽不出太多時間帶我觀光,我亦習慣了獨自乘紐約市內的交通工具往返不同地區悠然自得去找尋景區遊走,悠閒的日子中,每天早上必往市場購買新鮮食物回家烹調,晚上做一頓豐富的晚餐給愛兒享用。留在紐約的短短日子中,亦不忙主動相約惜日的慕光校友作茶聚,大家暢談生活點滴。

 

今年與Y校友聚頭,收到很感人的新春大賀禮,居然是【醫護口罩】,在此段期間,我明白在紐約這大都會亦是口罩難求的,Y校友移居美國已十多廿年了,他真的不簡單,居然找到港人渴求的口罩,衷心感謝他對港人的關愛。

由於我暫未計劃飛回香港,我亦作出相應安排,隨後把多盒口罩以快遞方式寄回香港給急切需要的港人及校友們分享,這批口罩經過長時間終抵達香港了,我亦代各受惠者再次多謝他窩心的厚禮。Y校友要求我要低調,我亦只好聽從他作承諾。

祝福Y校友在美國生活愉快,家庭幸福美滿,工作順利,身心健康。

希望這疫情可快速減退,香港人過回惜日自由呼吸新鮮空氣,免除戴口罩防疫的日子。
