青春不是年華 而是心境 青春不是桃 面 丹唇 柔膝 而是深沈的意志 恢宏 的想象 炙熱的感情 青春是生命的深泉 在湧流

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

青春氣貫長虹 勇銳蓋過怯弱 進取壓 倒苟安 如此銳氣 二十後生而有之 六 旬男子則更多見 年歲有加 並非垂老 理想丟棄 方墮暮年

Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease. This often exists in a man of sixty more than a boy of twenty. Nobody grows old merely by a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals.

歲月悠悠 衰微只及肌膚 廢必致靈魂 憂煩 惶恐 使心靈扭曲 意氣如灰

熱忱抛卻 喪失自信

頹 定

無論年屆花甲 抑或二八芳齡 心中皆 有生命之歡樂 奇迹之誘惑 孩童般天真 久盛不衰 人人心中皆有一台天線 只要 你從天上人間接受美好 希望 歡樂 勇 氣和力量的信號 你就青春永駐 風華常 存 一旦天線下降 銳氣便被冰雪覆蓋 玩 世不恭 自暴自棄油然而生 即使年方二 十 實已垂垂老矣 然則只要樹起天線 捕捉樂觀信號 你就有望在八十高齡告別 塵寰時仍覺年輕 塞繆爾 厄爾曼(王佐良 譯) 主編寄語 謹將此篇散文獻給Mr.Matuk以及十三年級的 學長學姐們 望他們在前行的道路上帶著勇氣與希望

Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust. Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being’s heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing child-like appetite of what’s next, and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the Infinite, so long are you young. When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you’ve grown old, even at twenty, but as long as your aerials are up, to catch the waves of optimism, there is hope you may die young at eighty.

letter to the editor

THE SCHOOL’S SECURITY SYSTEM Ellisa Lin The security system of the school has been an increasing issue in YCIS. Many would say that it is too systematic, and the system has become overly complicated, making it almost impossible for students to just come in and get something we left in the locker. Here’s what happened to me early this month. I came to school to get notes from my locker on a Saturday morning, and the security guard refused to let me in. Despite showing her my student ID card, she still insisted on keeping me at the front gate until I had permission from the school office. My parents then called the office so I may be granted access, but the office refused their request and we were told that the school is not opened to the public on weekends. Although I understand and respect that the school only has our best wishes at heart and are doing their role in protecting our belongings, we should be trusted to be responsible for ourselves. The school should be more flexible, and instead have measures to prevent thefts or other incidents, for example by marking down our student ID number, the locker number or send a guard escort until we leave the campus.

關於推行課堂英文交流的建議 耀中是香港著名的國際學校 所謂國際學校 就是要夠國際化 因此 說英文是一件 不可或缺的事情 然而 我認為我們學校的高年級學生們缺乏英文上的交流 尤其是 在課堂上 這直接導致的結果就是學生們在讀了國際學校后英文水平並沒有顯著的提 升 因此 我建議學校首先應該提倡並鼓勵學生們在課堂上增加英文的溝通交流

pirit day. Running man. Christmas ball. YCGT. The annual musical. What do these names remind you of? Events hosted by our school! Over the past few years, teachers and students alike have introduced many spectacular events to be enjoyed by everyone in the school. Events have not only increased in numbers throughout the years, but they have also improved in quality. But how do we make this even better? How should we boost our school spirit even more? Sometimes, I overhear students talking about the different events our school can host. I remember one student bringing up the idea of introducing more friendly house games, allowing for more house points to be won, and I personally think that proposal is a great idea. However, not all of us are particularly athletic and we may sometimes miss out opportunities to demonstrate our own speciality. We all have talents, all we need is a stage for us to shine!


critisms and inprovements

首先 我認為上課說英語是一種對老師的尊重 我們學校大部份的老師都是外籍的 而且我相信他們之中能聽懂中文的一定是極少數 所以 如果我們上課的時候一直是 用中文在交流 那在無形之中就是將老師 隔離 了 這種感受並不舒服 試想 你一 個人身處在一個所有人都說著你聽不懂的一種語言的環境中 你會是怎樣的感覺 被 孤立 被歧視 當然我不是說老師們也是這麼覺得的 畢竟這個現象不是一天兩天的 事情了 其次 上課說英文有助於學生們更好地學習 我和幾位英文老師都談過 他們都告訴 我說課堂上學生有不斷說中文的情況 如果兩個學生是在用英文討論某個學術問題的 話 老師就能夠上前糾正錯誤或是補充 同時 老師也可以更好的了解到學生是否已 經掌握了課堂上學到的知識 然而 如果大部份人在課堂上都是用中文溝通 那麼老 師存在的意義何在 總而言之 我認為用英文交流可以增強學生和老師的互動 We need a platform to realize our full potential. Beside from participating in athletic competitions, there are many CCAs and other opportunities available for us. We once had a chess club joining local competitions, but where did that club go? Many students do not know about these activities, and they miss out on grand opportunites. Allowing students to understand their choices and realizing their potential is very important. Getting students to be involved in all activities in school not only

benefit themselves, but it also diversifies the school’s culture. So next time when you want to suggest a new activity or join an event, I encourage everyone to voice out their ideas. Your talents should not be supressed. It is up to us students to create these opportunities for themselves. Your ideas are very valuable to the student body and to the school as a whole, so don’t be shy! It is never too late to make your next school year an amazing one!

再有 多說英文可以顯著地提高學生的英文水平 在和夥伴們交流的過程中 他們可 以互相學習 共同進步 英語口語 最重要的就是日常生活的積累 每一次和別人的 交流 都可能成為你的一個故事 另外 擁有一個好的英文功底在未來是很有益處 的 在香港這樣一個國際化的都市中 需要的就是那些能流利得說中英雙語的人 在提倡說英語上 我們的英文班可以說是帶了一個好頭 我在不久前向我的英文老師 提出了一個制度可以推動學生說英語 規則是這樣的 如果學生在上課時說了中文 就要被記上一分 每記上一分就意味著他需要在學年末的Party上捐助10元港幣作為資 金 這個制度在我們班上可以說的非常有效的 因為它成功得增多了學生們的英文交 流 當然 我並不是要求所有的班級都實行這樣的制度 我相信 的提議

學生能從課堂上獲得更多的東西如果他們能多說英文 希望學校可以考慮我 增加學生們說英文的頻率 讓學生們能在課堂上學到更多的東西

此致 敬禮

Summer is a time in our lives where we want to have

fun, explore, meet new people, go on an adventure! However most of us students in Yew Chung spend half of our summers on a “stay-cation” - staying home, watching television and relaxing. It’s almost as if we go through our daily routines, just without school! The IB students enjoy catching up with their sleep during this time, while the younger years laze around and play video games from morning till evening. There are so many options to choose from in order to enrich this holiday, but with only fifty-five days of holiday, how do we use our summers to its full potential?

Theme article

Take up a course

Try something new

Students who are looking to broaden their horizons, meet new people, and who want to learn more in and out of the classroom should look at applying for summer programs. There are many great academic summer courses in Hong Kong, but I encourage you to visit other countries as it can build your independence. Many colleges and universities offer summer programs too, so don’t miss out on the chance to apply for a college you are interested in!

We all love our comfort zone. Whether it is a skill, sport, or a subject that we are good at, we really do love doing what we know we enjoy. HOWEVER, it’s a trap! You will never know whether you like or dislike it if you don’t try it. Use this summer as an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and you will learn from your experience. If you do not enjoy anything you try, make something new. Start an activity with your friends or think of an idea for a good activity and share it with your family.

Have fun. Travel to a new city There’s nothing more exciting then setting off on a journey to an unfamiliar destination, just the change of air and atmosphere induces anticipation. Visiting a new city washes away your worries and allows you to leave them back home, making your vacation just what you need to have a break from reality! On your trip, you can visit many of the cities’ sights, try their food, or even take part in their cultural activities.


Lastly, I encourage you to enjoy your summers. Study, research and work, but don’t forget to enjoy every step of the way. Manage your time well so that you can be productive, while also valuing your free days with friends and family. It all comes down to the experience you have gained and the quality of the things you have done in the short time you have. Remember, you only get one summer a year.

- 15 years of service

An interview,

Cover stroy

a reflection on the 15 years political science and international law, and completed another degree in that field as an adult.

What will you miss most about YCIS?

I will miss the daily joy of meeting with so many people who have been great colleagues to work with over the years and now have become good friends. But mostly I will miss interacting with current students and meeting new ones, and watching them develop into mature adults over the years. How did you become the leader of YCIS? What advice can you give people that want to lead?

I first came to YCIS as an IT and Mathematics teacher. Opportunities became available for me to advance my career here, including acting as the IB Coordinator and Vice Principal before becoming Co-Principal. For budding leaders, it is important to understand that there are many ways that you can lead. A title and a position is only one type of leader, but


Some students want to be teachers. What can you tell us about teaching/leading? What advice would you give people that want to teach?

being involved in the decision making process, whether as participant, advisor, or initiator, allows you to influence and lead as well. So do grab the opportunities if they come your way, and “open new doors” when you can. Being a good listener and a good team player is very essential. What were you like as a student at school? I enjoyed school life a lot and always desired new knowledge. I also liked sports but did not have a chance to participate on school teams, however mathematics was always the subject I excelled at and l also enjoyed studying science and literature.

What were your dreams? Did you ever think you were going to become a teacher? Much like many young students, I also dreamt of becoming a doctor and a lawyer but did not plan my future until I finished university. Although both my parents were teachers, and my mother a school principal as well, I never planned to become a teacher. Becoming a teacher came by chance when I finished my engineering degree and started looking for jobs. However, other than teaching, I enjoy scientific and medical research as well, which is something I did during my postgraduate studies. I also have an interest and passion for

Teaching is certainly a rewarding profession. Anyone can train to become a “good” teacher and make a career of it, but to be an inspiring teacher is sometimes a rarity. If you wish to become a teacher you need to ask yourself whether you have the passion and if you are willing to give your time selflessly to others. If you are seeking wealth, teaching is certainly not the career you wish to pursue. If working with youth is something that is meaningful to you, then consider teaching as a career option. But remember that teaching is not an easy job! In your opinion, what is the hardest thing about being a teacher/principal?

The hardest thing is to be able to keep the energy, day after day and year after year. This may be true of other professions, but teaching is rather unique. In education, there are always high expectations of teachers and administrators as they are responsible for the education and care of many students. Meeting expectations may not be that simple. What would you say is your biggest accomplishment in YCIS? YCIS has accomplished quite a lot over the past 10-15 years in both academic and non-academic programs, but it is not easy to accomplish something this big on your own. Here, it has always been a team effort and so over the years with the support of teachers, staff, students and parents we have made this school a place to be proud of. YCIS is well respected locally and globally, and none of this would be possible if we have not built a good reputation of excellence over the years.

What are your plans for the future? What do you think is going to be the best part of the next thing that you are going to do? I hope to stay connected with schools and the education field in general, most likely as consultant. But I also hope to have more time now to spend with my grandchildren and watch them grow. Thank ou for your time. You are welcome.

I personally feel delighted to have a well-experienced principal who is more than excited to be part of the Yew Chung life. The other principal, Dr. Lam, has also given us all a surprise as he has known our current principal Mr. Matuk for over 14 years. He was also the principal in Yew Chung Qing Dao, and in my perspective, Dr. Lam is quite the knowledgable person and has a very sociable personality. The nine student leaders present were all quite curious

Last week, we had a fun meeting with our two future principals. As student leaders, we seized our chance and bombarded them with some questions. Accompanied by Mr Matuk and Dr Lyso, our western principal walked into the room. He was a cool Australian with a pair of sunglasses hanging around his neck and a red glow on his face. He was the principle of a school in UAE and his wife was also a principal in Australia. They both decided to move to Hong Kong to experience the exotic Asian culture together, and he seemed ready to find out more about Chinese culture in the area of education. He has also worked in schools in many different countries in the past, and the experiences he has gained has shaped him to be an insightful leader. The conversation was light hearted and fun. He was a kind and interesting man with a great sense of Australian humor, and at one point, he even expressed

his love for cookies. Half an hour later, our Chinese principal walked in. The man was as energetic, and had a youthful smile on his face. His journey with YCIS began a long time ago, as he had worked for our school before the school even moved into this new campus in Kowloon. He is also good friend of our current principal, Mr Matuk. According to them, they have both known each other for at least 14 years. When YCIS moved to its new campus, he was sent to develop YCIS in Qing Dao as the principal. Soon after he returned back to Hong Kong, gained a Chinese Master’s degree in HKU and worked with various other international schools inHong Kong. He had a great enthusiasm for Chinese and being in credibly familiar with our school system, he joked excitedly about being our Chinese Extended Essay supervisor for Lun Yu ( 論語). We are excited to see the new and exciting changes that they can add to our school. Next year is going to be an incredible year!

OK! Gaven Cao的吐槽又 回來了,大家都考完試特 別想吐槽,但是又沒地方“ 吐”對不對!Gaven,在這裏 替大家“吐”了!

我相信考試之前大家或是 在家或是在學校忙著緊張 的復習,這時我的頭腦中 清晰的出現了同學們在家 和在學校的情景。一個是 大家全身癱瘓在床上復習 壹天的情景,另一個就是 上課的時候大家半身癱瘓 在座位上聽課的情景。

同學發現自己已經掛科 了。 在這裏,Gaven想跟大家 說:考試之前分數是全 部,考試之後分數就是浮 雲了。同時我也再送大家 一句話:一個錯題其實就 是一個財富,當妳發現妳 快要錯的掛科的時候,妳 應該有一種土豪的感覺對 不對!嘿嘿嘿! (其實我只 是在自我安慰,妳們知道 的。)

哎,說了這麽多,考試都 考了,該做錯的題也已經 做錯了,現在說什麽都晚 了。還是想想怎麽面對家 長吧!其實,我覺得,考 試考差了不能怪我們!大 家沒聽說過那句話嗎?沒 有學不好的學生,只有學 的方法不對!

我就奇了怪了!沒有一個 老師是能教全部科目的, 為什麽,作為學生!我們 就要學全部的科目!睡不 到八小時的學生黨!妳們 說,我說的對不對!

吐槽 蘇梓豪、董 nick su, shirley dong 前一期的吐槽據說反應很 好耶~ 所以這一期。。 特別聲明:以下內容的 idea有些來自於暴走漫畫 等微信公眾號。版權不 知道是誰的但肯定不是我 的。 我實在是不能理解學校是 什麼邏輯。為什麼可以任 意使用電腦和iPad卻不能 使用手機。如果要玩遊戲 貌似用電腦更爽快一點 吧,難道是為了防止我們 拿諾基亞砸核桃嗎?

一直很想吐槽一下學校 的fitness gym,來YC兩年 了,可是我從來沒有去 過那個gym。。這是為森 麼。。。


別人溫書最後都是說“喔! 我看懂了!”,難道只有我 一個是“喔!我看開了!”

最近騙子的各種騙術越來 越高超了,總結一下我多 年不被騙的經驗就是,警 惕性高,別貪小便宜,還 有卡裏始終沒錢。

吐槽 各位同學、老師們,這幾 天過的開心不?在這裡我 想對各位拿到成績的同學 們說一聲:天台永遠歡迎 你們的光臨! 不,我開玩笑的!我們還 能靠臉吃飯的是吧~ 其實這句才是真的玩笑。 恩。

我覺得吧,就算考不上大 學…去紐西蘭種田也是個 不錯的選擇…左手一隻雞 右手一隻羊,一邊吹著清 風一邊看著那些大學狗繼 續考試。完全一副人生贏 家的感覺有沒有!! (https://www.immigration.

還記得小時候都被怎麼稱呼 麼?「嘿喲這小夥子很結實 啊!」「嘿喲這小夥子真精 神!!」

說到身高,真是南方人的畢 生之痛…想起個之前看到的 段子「160的妹子都被180的 漢子帶走了,只剩下170和 漢子和170的妹子四目相瞪 著著著著著。」有沒有發現 很重要的東西!15X的妹子 跟16X的漢子已經完全被 忽 略了呀!!!吾校有一半的 人已經連段子手都不想理了 呀!!

其實長大后想想,這根本形 容就是嬰兒肥和多動症好 麼!這就好像有人問「你覺 得我女朋友長得如何:D」「 她特好人!」一 樣一樣的! 乍聽好像很真 誠的樣子…其 實這也不賴人家,要不是把 人家逼的,哪想的出來這麼 有創意的高級黑

時候去做飛躍太空山被趕出 來的屈辱… 還有十四歲的時候上地鐵買

真的,中國人與人的關係實 在太複雜。有時真想就找個 坑把自己埋了。兩耳不聞窗 外事,一心只讀聖賢書。靜 靜地思考人生。

Games by Ellisa Lin



It is absolutely beyond me how a student can watch so many movies before exams, from The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, to Fight Club. But after watching an impressive collection of films, I have come to the conclusion that Mean Girls will forever be the queen of all teenage movies. Based on the book Queenbees and Wanabees, the story’s main lead Cady Heron (Lindsey Lohan), moves from being homeschooled in South Africa to a typical American high school, where she is introduced into a public high school that is made up of with teenage cliques and clichés. On the first day of school, Cady gets an immediate crash course about the school jocks, the cheerleaders, the stoners, the cool Asians and so on. Most importantly, she gets invited into the school’s most exclusive and powerful clique, the Plastics. It consists of three popular girls, Regina George (Rachel McAdams), Gretchen Wieners (Lacey Chabert) and Karen Smith (Amanda Seyfried), who are the rich pretty girls that rule the school. It doesn’t take Cady long to discover how crazy and manipulative the Plastics can be. After she falls in love with Regina’s ex boyfriend, Aaron Samuels (Jonnathan Bennet), the jungle that is the girl’s world is unleashed. Although the plot of this movie is not as original as it could be, the script is spiced up with hilarious and sarcastic humor. It is cleverly crafted to poke fun at teen clichés, and at the same time, it shows the realities of the teenage years by painting a vivid picture of the high school scene, and is the perfect portrayal of high school as a jungle of hormones and fake people. It reveals every ugly detail of being a teenager: obsessions with being skinny, rumors, or falling in love with the wrong guy or girl. Most importantly, it teaches youngsters an important lesson -- “Don’t let the haters stop you from doing your thang.” With its funny small touches, the movie has become a pop culture phenomenon. After eleven years, Mean Girls continues to be relevant today, and in fact the film should be the rite of passage for every single teenager. If you have never seen this movie before, give it a try! This cleverly written and funny satire on high school will pleasantly surprise you, and you may begin to understand the complexity of a teenage girl’s world, and understand that it’s true what they say: girls are mean.

《他一定很愛你》 阿杜 2002

一寫下這首歌就感覺要暴露自己年齡了…作為 一個成年人(咳咳咳)到底我童年的背景音樂是什 麼?周杰倫麼?還是蔡依林?他們的確在我的生命中 留下不可磨滅的位置。但對我來講,阿杜的聲音代表 了千禧年。也許我到現在都還沒有理解“我應該在車 底,不應該在車裡”是個什麼意思,可是誰在乎呢, 過去一直都是美好的。作為九零后,近年再也沒聽到 阿杜的聲音,真是很傷心啊!


Don McLean (1971)

其實我都不知道推薦如此經典的歌算不算犯 規…只是有天在電臺裡又聽到了它,想起今年便是 梵高離世125年了,感覺是有意義再翻出來紀念一下 這個藝術史上的奇才。我想這首歌不單單是最有名 的紀念梵高的歌曲,更是最有名的紀念梵高的方式 了。最喜歡梵高這種永遠不開心的人了,真酷哈哈 哈。“They will not listen they’re not listening still, perhaps they never will”125年了,有多少人真的 懂他呢。

< To be with you > Mr. Big (1991)

萬萬沒想到Mr. Big這個四位糙漢子組成的重 金屬樂隊也能產出如此出色的柔情作品。雖然Eric Martin的那搖滾味濃濃的嗓音依然出現在了裡面,但 卻能夠與偏流行和舒緩的音樂完美地融合在一起。我 還記得第一次是在洗澡的時候聽到這首歌的,突然間 就感覺特開心,沉浸在了那個好洗腦卻又好舒服的旋 律里。在這個情歌滿天飛的時候,偶爾靜靜下來聽聽 這樣略勵志的歌,也不妨是一件挺贊的事情。



林冉、黃芳瑩 Luv Letter - Dj Okawari

日本一向不缺鋼琴與電音結合的人才,然而日系DJ也喜歡這種結合,不管是在house或者 hiphop都出現許多許多類似的crossover東西。“luv letter”的作者 DJ Okawari,就來自於日本靜 岡縣,是一位充滿才氣和靈感之光的音樂創作人。他的音樂總是將傳統與現代相結合,曲風 以jazz-hiphop和chillout為主,帶有空靈自然的唯美感。不僅如此,日系純音樂在他們的專輯 封面制作上頗具創新。第一眼看到《Mirror》這個專輯封面,就情不自禁地被吸引住——簡約 中透著華麗,飽含著自然元素,把美學與音樂結合在一起的專輯,無不令人動心。而在本張 專輯中,最喜歡的莫過於“luv letter”這首曲調清雅的歌曲了。鋼琴聲落處,如雨珠墜盤,再配 上節奏鮮明歡快的鼓點,妙筆生花。前奏長達50秒的鋼琴Solo,奠定了主旋律。從最初的抒情 緩和,慢慢地漸變為清新歡快的小調,轉折升華,最後呈現出一種曼妙的感覺。就如同歌名 一樣,腦海裡浮現出一對戀人從相知相識的青澀甜蜜,到束手離別時的不舍思戀,最終都寄 於一封封信紙上,時刻期盼對方的回音。百感交集的情緒變化洋溢於琴聲之中。因此無論從 曲風,歌曲背景,後期編輯和封面排版的角度欣賞,luv letter都是一首值得收藏的好歌曲~ 《夜的鋼琴曲15》 -石進 中國現代有不少傑出的鋼琴家,像 朗朗,李雲迪等都是家喻戶曉的人選。然 而,也有許多平凡的創作者,或許他們沒有 高超的演繹技巧,卻將我們的心情如實地彈 奏於琴聲中,細致入微。石進,國內音樂創 作人,憑著自己業余愛好創作《夜的鋼琴 曲》系列被馮小剛選為經典電影《非誠勿擾2 》的配樂。其中,夜的鋼琴曲5最為出名,然 而相比抒情的5,我更傾向於夜的鋼琴曲15。 它的曲調輕快鮮活,聽起來非常舒服,給人 帶來愉悅的心情。若將它比作一名女子,它 必定是那俏皮靈動,毫不做作,渾身散發著 活力的少女,讓人打心眼裡歡喜。

《晴天》 歌手:周杰倫 星級:☆☆☆☆☆ 理由:於是乎,周董又出現了。這首歌 我相信許多人都聽過,輕快的曲風和憂 傷的歌詞看起來似乎格格不入;卻被周 董完美逆轉。就像是用輕鬆愉悅的語氣 來講述自己過去傷感的回憶。看起來已 經什麼事都過去了,可是痛苦也許只有 他一個人知道吧?就學著歌詞最後一歌 詞,說一句「拜拜」。拜拜,最初的你 我;拜拜,那些哭過笑過的美好回憶。 推薦人群:情侶檔或者單身貴族都行, 老少皆宜,周董粉絲。

《發如雪》 歌手:周杰倫 星級:☆☆☆☆☆ 理由:這是我認為周董最好聽的一首古 風歌曲,認真來講,歌詞並非是圍繞著 「雪」這一氣候來描寫的。(才不會告 訴你們我只是單純的太愛這首歌了)《 發如雪》是周董和方文山的又一次合 作,詞曲方面融入了古詩般的韻味,產 生了種濃郁古香和現代感的激烈碰撞。 這首歌每個人聽都會有不同的感受。 推薦人群:喜歡古風、好歌的人,各種 年齡層皆宜,周董粉絲。


歌手:南拳媽媽 星級:☆☆☆☆☆ 理由:這首歌是由南拳媽媽里的女子成員梁 心頤所演唱的。這首歌圍繞著「雨天」的背 景來敘述女孩的心理活動。不少人都說這首 歌的歌詞就像在講述自己的故事。在一個個 淅淅瀝瀝的夜晚,你是不是也曾想著那些苦 澀情感,你會不會因為這首歌而感同身受? 推薦人群:青年-中年人群,喜靜的人



TRAVELs Jasmine Harris Egypt was every bit as magical as I ever envisioned it to be. As a young child I tore through page after page of Egyptian myth, and even then I had set my heart on going to this land someday. That someday became a reality this year, where I finally had the chance to explore this country of animal-headed gods and great stone temples. Some of these temples included Abu Simbel, Temple of Edfu and more. Although they shared similar traits, every single one of them was remarkable. For one thing, they were older than even


Christ himself, yet they tower at a height of over 50 feet and still stand strong to this very day. However the pyramids themselves were rather disappointing. The interior was completely plain, and you could spend just five minutes within the greatest pyramid of them all, the Pyramid of Giza, and have experienced the entire pyramid experience. But on the other hand in the temples, nearly every single wall of the temples was covered from top to bottom with carvings of people and gods walking sideways, still in color. Walking through these halls that had belonged to some of the greatest rulers the Earth has ever seen, the pharaohs that I had grown up reading about, can make someone feel incredibly small. The food is itself is surprisingly good, specifically the traditional eesh

baladi bread and the seasoned chicken. However not all parts of Egypt were as splendid as this; the massive amounts of rubbish on the streets and the army carrying guns everywhere are some of the imperfections that Egypt has. Our tour guide told us of the typical life of the Egyptians, where girls were denied so many more chances and how he, like so many, lost everything he owned in the revolution. The pushy vendors especially are a massive negative of being a tourist in this country. A small tip if you were ever to visit Egypt: never ever even make eye contact with the salesmen, unless you want to be tailed for half an hour by them.

that if I was a part of this beautiful, alive country, I would be proud to call myself Egyptian.

Despite all that, Egypt is a vibrant and colorful country. When cruising down the Nile or when riding on camels in the desert, I couldn’t help but think
