Mrs.Caroline Keung


Mr.Anthony Keungの奥様Carolineは私など到底足元にも及ばない知識人。
香港の三和銀行に長く勤務し、44歳で3人目の子供を産んで55歳で退職を宣言、中国文化を広める事を最後の仕事としたいと現在北京大学で書道を勉強している
毎週月曜日から木曜日までは一人北京の寮に入って勉強、週末は家族と過ごす為に香港に戻ってくる。
80歳で先生になっている自分をイメージして勉強を続けているらしい。
好きな事の為に努力する彼女をやさしく見守っているAnthonyも偉い。
The wife of Mr. Anthony Keung, Caroline is a very intelligent person who is far ahead of me. She had worked in Sanwa Bank in Hong Kong for a long time and gave birth to the 3rd child at the age of 44 and declared retirement at the age of 55. Now she studies calligraphy in University of Beijing in order to spread Chinese culture as her last career in her life.
She stays alone in the dormitory in Beijing from Monday to Thursday and comes back to Hong Kong on weekend in order to spend time with family. She says she has been studying and imagining herself being a teacher at the age of 80.
I also respect Anthony who just gently watches her doing her best to achieve her dreams.
