A classic family dinner

前晚才能跟媽咪補吃 Mother’s Day Dinner,地點由我拍板,選了「打擰」從來都不喜歡的Amigo Restaurant – 雅谷餐廳不過我倆都習慣了跟對方唱反調式的相處了!再者,這次不是純粹為了我喜歡與否,而是我知到Daddy 媽咪會喜歡去 Amigo。

這其實是「打擰」教我的。他說老人家到了這年紀並不是太 care 有關物質上的炫耀,而是可跟朋友說:我仔女同我去邊喥邊喥啊玩啊,我仔女陪我去邊喥邊喥旅行啊等等。所以,帶他們去 Da Domenico 都未必夠帶他們去身邊朋友人人都識的 Amigo 「過癮」。

結果Daddy 媽咪都好滿意好開心。除了因為他兩個太耐沒來過之外,食物好啱胃口外,最開心就是能跟我和「打擰」共度一個很warm 的兩個多小時吧!

而我喜歡 Amigo 的原因,是因為那股老牌的貴氣。我就是愛這裡多年來都沒怎麼變過:無論是服務的 server (我認得起碼有4 個是元老級的了,他們這麼多年樣子都一樣,一定是用了「美源髮采」!)、那本用燙金印上訂台賓客名字的 note pad、裝修、擺設、又大又重的木刻椅子、用了幾十年的 Christofle 餐具、那塊活龍活現的玫瑰型牛油、不知怎麼可那麼脆和好吃的多士、那張吃甜品時影完並用 Amigo 紙相框套著的即影即有相片、那幾顆很好吃的朱古力、那枝送給女賓客的紅玫瑰 … 雖知這一切都會發生,但每次都仍會當它們是新的 surprise。

我是個怪人。雖然外表和思想行為好像很時尚很古靈精怪,但內心深處總是對又老又classic 的東西很感興趣 - 看我會愛上 「打擰」便知道了!:) 他們這些不會隨波逐流的態度,總給巨蟹座的我很多好溫暖的安全感。By the way,我還常常覺得,在某程度上我是有個soul 停留在我出生前的 1960‘s 的!好詭異?就是啊!

另一個喜歡 Amigo 的原因,是情意結問題。我小時候在跑馬地長大,唸到 Form 5 都還是在跑馬地打躉。記得小時候經過 Amigo 時,雖不知它是什麼來的,但那大大個無論晴天陰天雨天,白天還是黑夜都閃耀著黃泥涌道的金太陽,總吸引到我雙眼盯著它。還有,我人生買的第一層物業,正正就是這座雅谷大廈呢!

說真的,到我再入市買樓時, Amigo Mansion 的馬場景單位絕對還會是 on my list。

    Hi Winnie,

    So happy for you since your 「打擰」 seems like getting along very well with your parents.

    I was educated overseas and my family is “modern” and ” finanically quite ok”, I would say. My boyfriend was brought up in a very traditional “finanically struggling” family and he respects his parents very much. He does not voice out even he disagrees with his parents. He is always a lovely obedient little child ( he is over age 35) !!

    On the other hand, my parents dislike him since they always think that I will not suit into his family after marriage and thinking that we are wasting each other time. I will definiely “downgrade” my living standard after marriage since he has to support his family in terms of $$.

    Do you think that the family background difference can be overcome ? I know I love him but the background difference is always the “fighting” point for us. Sigh !!
