香港实在是催人上进的城市。It is such a place where you want to stay, to become a part of its busy crowd, to find a position for your own, to participate in some real work here, to dress up formally and walk into those offices, to make full use of your talent and dig up your utmost potential, to be involved, to be occupied, to quicken your step, to live your life to the fullest and have no time to regret. That’s the kind of life that belongs to we young people. That is the way I am long for. It is a place you can easily find impetus, a place you are always motivated to make progress. “Ask For More”, it is exactly what is happening here. An ideal place prepared for every capable, ambitious man and woman, a place to struggle with pressure and confront competition, a place where u can discover something new of yourself, a city that encourage you to embrace life and pursue your dream, a place where things can be so perfect and so real, so close to you yet you still always want to grasp more. Opportunities are everywhere. Only smart ones understand how to recognize them and never let them go. I believe there are a lot of smart ones here. Hong Kong’s prosperity shall give credit to all the elite and industrious people.
To conclude, life must be more interesting in such a lively place. People devote and get their reward in return. People don’t spare time whining, they’d rather do their work and make a better living. This dynamic city makes people feel young and feel grateful. Life is spinning here, maybe tired sometimes, but never get exhausted. People never hesitate to move on. I see such a city that never gets old. Pretty amazing la… 香港真的很香啊。^__^
香港男人 陈冠中的《半唐番城市笔记》中收录有一篇文章，是写香港男子的： “男孩子们愈来愈清洁了。 而且愈来愈悦目。他们既没有强作MACHO,亦没有EFFEMINATE自己。 新的品种已在我们之间诞生，感谢POLO、LACOSTE及其他本地制T-SHIRT。 感谢意大利时装、健身会、屈臣氏、花洒及The REGENT,一种CLEAN SENSIBILITY终于积聚了足够的能量，变成LIFESTYLE,变成V-I-S-I-B-L-E! 'IT TAKES A NAME TO MAKE SOMETHING VISIBLE' (NIETZSCHE) 于是我们就叫这些尼采的子女做：LES BOYS。 IN THE ROOM LES BOYS COME AND GO, TALKING OF VIVA MILANO. ... ... AND THEY DON'T SMOKE. "
陈冠中这篇 《LES BOYS》原刊于1982年5月的《号外》。二十五年过去，这篇当年充斥着“以知识分子高高在上的姿态，极尽挖苦之能事”的典型《号外》风格的警醒文章，在让人笑翻之余、仍然是“放之今时而皆准”的。香港的男子，和他们的female counterpart一样，在整齐划一的西装革履包裹中，显得彬彬有礼、气质卓越。只是，香港男人身上似乎缺少一种叫masculinity的东西；这使得他们人人看起来都有点像gay，但是又并非人人都是gay。可能正如陈冠中所说，香港的Les Boys们“孕育于七十年代的美国大都会，大抵属于DANIEL BELL所说的THE NEW CLASS”。他们受过高等教育，欣然认同布尔乔亚的生活方式，所以他们身上散发出来的那种“温柔”气质应该是浑然天成、是其个性的一部分了。这和传说中的“上海小男人”有着本质区别，后者是受外力所迫达成，前者则是自身的价值取向铸就，有点“每思君子，温润如玉”的意思。 Anyway,不管是否中意这款，和香港的LES BOYS “一起出现于场合，总是件赏心乐事：VISUALLY, IF NOTHING ELSE.”
