飯民參加小圈子選舉無耻,本身的所謂初選更無耻,為何只可以選何俊人和馮檢基?我連提名權都沒有,這叫體驗民主?鏡頭前何俊人馮檢基的臭臉令我作嘔,民主黨和民協今日的生存只不過靠出賣選民換取北京放一條生路,看區選和選委選舉的結果就一目了然。

2.          介紹「總分式」的寫法。

3.          解決「背句子」因「句不對題」而被扣重分的問題。

A little Christmas Message

Dear visitors to this blog,

I just want to say thank you to all who have visited this blog in 2011.  It has been a challenging year for me.  I have gone through, amongst other things, some poignant experiences1 and self-reflection, through which I have seen my own irrationality and ignorance of reality.  But I enjoy staying foolish and hope to leave 2011 no wiser or better than I began it. 

1 poignant experiences 令人心碎的/深深打動人的經歷

I often count myself as incredibly lucky2 to have an opportunity to be a blogger writing whatever I like.  Thanks to your tacit support (if any!), this blog remains in good shape3 overall and I have confidence in its position going into 2012. 

2 count myself as incredibly lucky覺得自己難以置信的幸運
3 in good shape
處於良好狀態

It would be great if you would manage a rest4 or do some preparation for your exams or career over this holiday period and enter 2012 refreshed5 and enthusiastic to take whatever it may bring.  I also hope you enjoy the festive cheer6 in the following YouTube clip.  I think it captures the spirit of the season and this blog.

4 manage a rest設法休息
5 refreshed
重新振作
6 festive cheer
節日歡欣

Kind regards

Alex

這是一個「搜尋題」“search” question)練習。

如果我再寫幾篇「考試練習」,或許仍會再用這篇My Mother and Her Mother(我媽媽和她媽媽),因為這篇passage「有高度可塑性」,而且,用同一篇passage出不同形式的題目,你也可能更容易掌握題目故弄的玄虛。

你不一定要每篇「練習博」都看,因為每篇博都自成一體和可以獨立閱讀(self-contained,從任何一篇讀起,都可以明白那篇的內容。

當然,以上只是隨便說說,真正發生的情況會如何,連我自己都不知道,然而可以肯定的是,考試是一定會在幾個月後舉行的,暫停「泡妞溝仔」唔該,all in all這幾個月要俾心機讀書,善用聖誔、新年假期溫習備戰,考好成績進大學。

要解釋這篇博,可以追溯到最近關於克林頓愛女切爾西的報道。

 

Rhodes scholarship是很難考取的獎學金。克林頓考取了,出國到Oxford留學。他有患得患失嗎?他如何布署?如何答問?沒有興趣知道的朋友,可以就此算數。有興趣的朋友,可以看下去──很不悶的。

寫了一些字請同事幫忙打。同事開出文件,發覺文件的最新version和我打印的硬本已有不同,指着電腦個monitor又指指文件問我怎辦。我的眼睛慢,無法在幾秒內看得出她說的分別,便將硬本拿走研究,發覺新version只是加了numbering,內容其實和舊version相同,便回覆同事,請她照打。
