I glance across my kitchen and see my beautiful, shiny new Velorbis Bicycle, (she will be referred to as Dorris from now on!)  my wonderful christmas present that is yet to be ridden! 

You see, since Dorris arrived, our wonderful British weather has kept me from test driving her, but today, there are no excuses.  The snow has gone, the rain has abated and even the wind has calmed. There is no one in the house and as it is sunday, the streets are almost empty. It is therefore time for me to pluck up my almighty courage and take her for ride.

I haven’t got round to ordering myself a helmet yet so, the pavements it is! 

Now Dorris isn’t a small bike, so it took me a few minutes to turn her round and get her outside. I take my place on the saddle, position the pedals and off I go…

…I am off, a bit wobbly to begin with, but to be fair, it’s been a while! Then I am flying! This is fab! My beautiful dutch shopper bike, is everything I hoped she would be. Now all that’s left to do, is to buy a cool retro helmet! X

      EricaI wrote this on my private blog – but thuhogt I would share it here. Please do excuse the poor Chinese.替容祖兒可惜 不是破不破紀錄的問題 她自己也說了無論她有沒有破紀錄都不可能超越梅艷芳的成就或取代她 尤其是林憶蓮是一次都沒有拿過這個獎 但今年確實是她最值得拿這個獎 14場演唱會 沒有大熱作品 楊千嬅也沒有 但容的就起碼比較流行和有質素 但總算保持了人氣 今年她氣勢其實只下於謝安琪一人 音樂上有了一點突破 唱和跳都進步了 整年從頭到尾都有主打歌在播 也拍了現代塵世美和出席了很多大騷 最重要的是有英皇這個後盾用盡全力在催谷她 基本上是十拿九穩 在情在理 也應該是她才對 相反地 楊千嬅最近跟有線做訪問還是斗膽的說廣東話 08年三首主打歌都是悶蛋 難得反而拿了大獎 不敢想象我在替容祖兒說話 – 但今年她無論音樂上和談吐上都成熟了和用心了 可喜可賀 始終 人神共憤的只是她公司和旗下的傳媒的不當手法 從來不信她有同流合污 但覺得她是說話沒經大腦的笨蛋 現在進步了 便沒有那麽可恨 不過 整體來說 過去七年 楊千嬅跟容祖兒的最受歡迎女歌星獎比數是2 5 也算是可接受 過去六年 單看獎項成績 容祖兒好像比楊千嬅成功三四倍 但事實是這樣一嗎 但是如果有去過有楊千嬅跟容祖兒演出的音樂會就會清楚這未必是事實 就算容祖兒是女歌手的贏家 楊千嬅其實也沒有落後太多 只是 相比之下 容祖兒的奪獎優勢 不是優點 太多了 顯然地 TVB這次是贏了noise 給容祖兒一人獨大 倒不如for once刺激一下競爭 不要每次都那麽predictable 也可以趁機反駁任何結果內定或一成不變的指控 況且 TVB下重注在容祖兒一個人身上 也有它危險的地方 她唱片公司的垂死掙扎到底能不能絕地反擊 還是真的氣數已盡 是頗有商榷的餘地 最後 在看得出是毫無準備的情況下 楊千嬅的得獎感言說得很好 說了一番真心和感動的話 再唱著 來日幼稚少女 雲上再會 實是感動
