Gregory Rivers 河國榮 (Actor) - 3 (S2E7)

In this episode we sit down and get casual with Gregory Rivers of TVB fame for a 3rd time.

We open with replying to some of the best YouTube comments from our previous two meetings. This is just a casual chat who is a superstar in Hong Kong. We were recording live on location in Pop Corn Mall in TKO. Be aware of the background noise and there is a baby crying in the first few minutes. This episode is also adapted from a YouTube episode to be released at a later date.

Topics Discussed

YouTube Comments Q&A. We talk about languages (because Gregory knows so many), we talk about:

  • Gregory’s heart condition, showing the reality of one’s life

  • Wearing dog make-up,

  • Future concerts planned in Hong Kong,

  • The Utility of using the Apple Watch,

  • Engaging online, being careful what to share because of perceptions

  • Not getting our movie references,

  • Saving water in Hong Kong,

  • Asian roles in mainstream culture

  • Drawing references to Kim Kardashian and so much more.

(故事分享) - Mr Lau [full version] (S2E4)

In this special episode I sit down with Stella and Mr Lau. Stella was kind enough to join me and help translate and share our guest’s story by Mr Lau in our first dual language episode. This is the full version where we share portions of Mr Lau’s life story. I’m happy Mr Lau could share his time with us.

Some background, Mr Lau came from China to Hong Kong in the 1950s where he started to aspire to work his way through various jobs and achieve his life goals. We talk about what life was like in Hong Kong and along the border, the jobs he held and how he lived before retiring from his last job in the late 1980s.

This is part 1 and hopefully we can speak to Mr Lau again soon.

今次除了我,還有Stella和劉伯跟我一同參與這次節目。這亦是我首個以廣東話及英語廣播的訪問,藉此要多謝Stella當日義務擔任我的翻譯員與劉伯細談他過去的心路歷程和點滴。我亦很感謝劉伯願意抽空跟我們分享他的故事,讓大家知道一些舊香港的事蹟。

劉伯於50年代由中國來到香港。透過訪問可以知道劉伯過往在邊界以及來港後的生活。初到香港,他透過同鄉介紹於現時仍屹立於油麻地的美都餐廳當過清潔及外賣。再輾轉經介紹做過其他工作。最後他在油麻地渡輪公司工作了30多年,直到94年退休享受自由自在的生活。從訪問中,可得知劉伯對工作的熱情和他對人生及生活所追求的目標。

希望大家喜歡劉伯的故事,我們期待劉伯很快跟我們再分享更加多的故事。
