Life expectancy in Hong Kong has been rising. According to statistics published by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in July 2016, the average life expectancies for men and women in Hong Kong in 2015 are respectively 81.24 and 87.32 years, surpassing Japan as the world’s nation of longevity. The latest issue of Hong Kong Population Projections 2015–2064 echoes this by projecting life expectancies at birth for Hong Kong men and women in 2064 at 87 and 92.5 years respectively, up from 81.2 and 86.9 in 2014.

As the proportion of seniors continues to grow in our population, more retirees still have parents around, to cherish and to care for, given the strong familial ties in Chinese culture. Where possible, most people prefer to let their parents stay home in their tender old age. Care for old parents is therefore one important facet of life for retirees, and the kind of care required can vary tremendously depending on the physical or mental condition of one’s parents. Visit our Tips for Carers page for some practical information about care for old parents. This page also gives tips about how caregivers can care for themselves.

Ageing parents will leave us one day. It is important for us as carers to prepare ourselves for this day, and to find out the Wishes of ageing parents, so as to walk them through their last journey with their personal choices in mind.

情人節臨近,想跟大家分享一些關於愛情與婚姻的名言。自己很喜歡 Ann Landers 以下這句:

「生命中有愛,就能彌補很多你缺乏的東西。生命中無愛,無論你擁有再多其他的東西都不會足夠。」

祝願有情人廝守一生。

This is sweet, Pauline. I want to share my favourite quote too. Here you go:

"Age does not protect you from love, but love to some extent protects you from age. --- Jeanne Moreau

Thank you!
我忽然想起 Mignon McLaughlin 以下這句,挺有意思的:
"A first-rate marriage is like a first-rate hotel: expensive, but worth it."

All About Love
Yes. And I love this one from Langdon Mitchell:
"Marriage is three parts love and seven parts forgiveness of sins."

同感!夫妻之間互相包容、寬恕,可說是個需要終生學習的課題啊!^^ 正如富蘭克林說過這句話,想想確實很有意思:

“婚前要睜大眼睛,婚後要睜隻眼閉隻眼。”

夫妻二人如能互補不足就更好了!柯立芝也說過類似的比喻:
"我想像到的最幸福的婚姻,是聾掉的男人和瞎掉的女人結合。"

"Cooking is love made visible"

近期看了"深夜食堂"這個劇集,是超級的好看。主角是一個不多言笑的普通廚師,但他做的每個菜都是用心煮出來的。每兩集一個故事,並有介紹怎樣煮,值得追看。

情人節除了關於男女之情,父母對子女的愛也應在歌頌之列。這幾年的情人節,我都會想起電影《回到最愛的一天》(About Time),由男孩到為人夫再到為人父,由愛情到親情,那份細水長流,教人萬分回味。

雖然世間有千種情萬種愛,但情人節還是看一些愛情電影才應節嘛!我的心水之選:
《秋天的童話》
《甜蜜蜜》
《一見鍾情》
《那些年,我們一起追的女孩》
《Ghost》
《Sleepless in Seattle》
《Flipped》
《One Day》

謝謝你的推介!我也很喜歡看《那些年,我們一起追的女孩》,少年時的愛情雖然青澀卻又那麼純真美好。真可惜最後男女主角沒能在一起,所以真的"愛要及時表達,機會或許稍縱即逝!
