從前在香港的時候，我們五兄弟妹都很愛吃媽媽煮的東西；但更高興去酒樓吃飯。不知是否那年代沒現在這麼多選擇，還是我父母 - 特別是我爸爸 - 太保守了不會嚐試新口味。記憶中我們每次吃的，都是同樣的菜式。我們可沒有介意或投訴；說起來我們對爸爸點的食物都喜愛得很。
Growing up in Hong Kong with my siblings; as children, we loved having dinner at Chinese restaurants. I don't know whether it was because there weren't as many choice as we have nowadays, or that our parents - especially my dad - were just too conservative to try out new dishes. For as long as I could remember we would always have the same things, not that we mined or complained. We did actually genuinely enjoyed the food that our dad ordered.
