香港的女孩美不美

最近不知在那裡看到寫香港的女孩不夠其他東方女性美麗。 嘩嘩聲之下,其實心底也覺得香港的女孩不特別漂亮,身材不夠北方的高挑,樣子不及印度的神祕,性情不夠台灣的嬌嗲,不夠泰國的開朗...

不過,我覺得香港的女孩好幸福。

自出娘胎從來沒有感到嚴重的男女不平等現象,男男女女都有工作的自由,說話的權利,大概上一輩六七十年代的師奶都在這種環境下訓練出來的,又會照顧家頭細務,又會工作,穿珠仔呀,穿膠花呀,車衣呀...只管看看粵語長片中的工廠妹多開心快樂,便知道這確是香港發展其中一個重要的見證。

話說回來,我們那一代從來沒有挨餓過,今天這一輩更不用說了,在香港這個國際都市,各地名菜,各種質素或價錢的菜色都可以找得到,要魚翅有魚翅,要食粉絲有粉絲,名乎其實的食家天堂。關於物質方面的享受更不用說了,由名牌到街邊貨,應有盡有,誰個愛美的女孩見到會不快樂?

現代的香港師奶,很多都是經濟獨立的,更常常是家中的財務主管,廣東人甚至有句話「聽老婆話先有發達」,你說香港的師奶快不快樂?還有還有,香港的男士對女性的態度還算殷勤,很多還是廿四考爸爸呢...

幸福從指間流過,變得如此理所當然。

寫到這裡,我想起世界上很多國家仍是男權至上,女性不但沒有話事的權利,還是社會的犧牲者,更談不上經濟獨不獨立了。即使在歐洲,女性平均的失業率仍比男性偏高,工資又比男性的偏低。

先不談現今香港女孩的性情呀港不港女的問題,得承認香港的女孩是幸福的。

自覺幸福了,知足了,臉上便會出現神彩。我相信香港的女性是可以發揮她們獨特的香江美的。不過如何變美,什麼是美,又是另一個問題了。


後記: 其實這篇文在上星期已寫了一大半,只因不斷有其他想先寫的而擱下,拖至今周一竟見「新香港人」出了一篇談香港適婚青年煩惱的。 唉,真是家家有本難念的經,以為生在福中,煩惱又來。

For me, there is a lack of natural beauty.

>> ... 什麼是美,又是另一個問題了。

I agree. As someone said once: "Nothing is worse than rich people with bad taste."

Perhaps I am being critical here.

我在想說香港女孩不夠美的,大概是男的,因為港女在各方面都太強了,基本上,香港女孩/師奶都不可以當作傳統女性來看……

一般來看,
香港女仔(16-22等)不美,
因為多數没有內涵,
只顧裝修外表,
無愛心無禮貎無思想無認知能力,
最慘係自以為好靚好正,
其實她們乜都唔係!

但有很多到中國內地包二奶的情況呢?有說是因為港女太強了,男人開始有點怕怕!!

Haricot: I've heard also a famous designer (don't remember who exactly) said: "Beautiful clothes can be bought, but knowing how to be well dressed cannot be purchased..." something like that.

aulina: 你提醒我了,對,香港女性早不可以當作傳統女性來看了。

新鮮人: 別激動,那麼你別挑16-22的好了 :)

Gwen: 你唔係香港都咁清楚 :?

When visiting HK, I love to look at girls and sometimes blatantly stare at girls. (smile) The way I see it, there are many pretty girls in HK.

Some may think I am too generous, but I define all girls too far away for me to see clearly as pretty by definition. :) Plus girls can be pretty from many perspectives as you just need to wait and find the right way, angle, and time to look at them.

Finally and I do think that there are ugly girls, but I will need some time to determine if a girl is really "ugly" by talking to them and getting to know them more.

Michelle, here is one quote I love.

“The most beautiful make-up of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.”
- Yves Saint Laurent, Fashion Designer

P.S. Gwen, 國內包二奶 is just money for a steady supply of sex? Men seemed to rationalize these kinds of hanky-panky won't affect their married-lives in HK until it is too late.

加燦 : thanks for the quote, may be it was that one i've heard and i've interpreted it in a different way... :) Hongkong girls should be happy to hear your comments on them :)

I don't believe in a 10. If I have to rate HK women, I think in general we are like a 5, very average inside and out.

Most HK women think they know fashion but in fact many don't. They don't know their body type. Finding the right dress that fits you is more important than buying expensive clothes.

Hong Kong women have the opportunity to get ahead at work, get multiple degrees but most do not read enough. They don't shine. If you know what I mean.

I am a 4, hehe....

不知有沒有離題,見你寫香港的女子好幸福,但近年港男老愛揶揄港女,什麼貪慕虛榮、貪得無厭之類,d男人係咪over-generalize少數事件呢?現代的港男也不見得很多有男人的模樣,很多都沒擔當沒風度呢!

michelle said...

natchan: 香港轉得好快,我只能大體來寫,事實上,我在文中只想指出香港的女孩比很多其他地方的幸福而已。

也聽聞港女之說,香港這一代的年輕男女是怎麼樣,也真的不太清楚了。 我總認為,不需要理會別人說的什麼什麼了,有時空月來風,不過 over-generalize 的也是有的,那會每個人都一樣一類呢? 要改變一般人對一件事的看法已不容易,要改變一些偏見更難。 唉男與女,火星與金星。

exile from hk,

ha ha, rating yourself a 4? :) Is this a form of blatant expectation management thing? :)

To save my head, I won't comment on HK ladies' fashion sense. But I will comment on many ladies' desire to buy expensive "designer" handbags, dresses, shoes as a replacement for, if I can be too harsh, having any self confidence.

For HK, I think if the "ugly crutches" are collectively yanked out from under the arms of HK ladies, and they have to dress my creatively with their own personal preferences, then they will all look prettier! Oh, by "ugly crutches", I am referring to all the expensive "designer" handbags, dresses, shoes, etc.

P.S. I have been following the blog of a Germany girl with a strong sense of fashion. And her own mix and match or hand-made stuff are much more charming that the standard HK ladies' wear. IMHO.

加燦 , i'll leave exile from hk to comment thus ;)
