We Chinese like to impute our lives to destiny, so do I. I do believe in Luck and Fate which will bring things to our lives. At beginning, we might not do things with any purpose, however after a round, what you have done might bring you something else back. For example, Mr. Philip B. Some months ago, I wrote a post about Philip B’s Hair Productions. I researched news, images and stories about this handsome man. Actually he was just a person I thought I might only know him via google. During Berlin Fashion week, my friend Devon (from Fashion Command Post) called me and said, Look, I would like to introduce you to someone who might be interesting for you. And guess who was my Mr. Surprise? Bingo, Philip B.
He was standing front of me, had big smile on his face, and the eyes were narrow from the friendly smile. Philip shook my hands, and then gave me cheek kisses. He is taller and stronger than I imagined, also for the first time meeting, he was so sweet. He was like a Santa Claus giving X’mas gifts to everyone, he shared all his hair productions those were in his hand bags. He said, try this, try that. And I realized that what Philip B’s Website writes about his hair revolution history and his enthusiasm are so true. He is so generous to share all what he has. And our friendship has began since Berlin.
Some days later Philip invited me for his wedding in Munich. A wedding! Yes, a wedding with his partner, Michael H.. When I arrived at the office, all their close friends were gather around. The ceremony was simple but so touched. I think almost all of us were crying from the touched moment. I looked at these two men, they held each other’s hands, and give themselves to each other for the rest of their lives. I don’t know the history about Philip and Michael, but what I saw has showed me everything.
Talking about Same Sex love or marriage, I feel sad sometimes. How People misunderstand the situation and sometimes they are not willing to understand that we all have right to love or stay with someone even has the same sex. It is fundamental and important. I teach my daughter that it is not the only choice for men to stay with women, if they like, men can stay with men, so do women. In many countries are not allowed same sex marriage, what a pity. Because of all constraints, it causes people feel shy to come out of closet. I know it is not easy, I can’t only sit here and talk. But what I can support is my heart and the faith which I do believe at. And I do see the power from Philip and Michael.
We Chinese also say, “May destiny bring all of the lovers together”. I hope all of us who have open mind will have this luck. Share this love story with you.
中國人喜歡把事情歸咎到緣份、命運頭上；當然我也相信。也許我們剛開始做一件事情的時候，我們不圖其它目的，心無異想，不過誰又能說得準那天當地球又轉了一圈，緣份卻把我們帶往另一個方向、另一個世界、另一個命運。比如說，Philip B 先生。幾個月前我寫了一篇關於 Philip B 的文章，介紹他的美髮產品。我上網搜尋有關他的資訊、照片以及背後故事；對我來說，他就是一位響噹噹的人物我只能從網路上來認識他。沒想到柏林時裝周期間，我的一位好友 Devon (Fashion Command Post) 打電話給我，說是要介紹一位朋友給我，我應該會感興趣。猜猜看，這位驚喜人物是誰？當然就是 Philip B 先生。
說到同性關係、戀愛以及婚姻，有時候我感到可惜，大部分的我們這於這樣的同性之情有所誤解，也不願意多加了解，大多數人並不接受每一個我們都有權力決定要愛男愛女和誰相守。我也教導自己的女兒，男人也可以愛男人，同樣的女人也可以只愛女人和女人結婚。不過這個世界上仍有許多國家不接受同性關係以及婚姻，實在可惜。也因為這樣的束縛，讓同性戀者不願意公開他們的性向而有所限制。我知道我只出一張嘴說來容易，不過我願意說出我的支持與堅信的理念，我相信我在 Philip 身上感受到的力量有一天會傳開來。
Some Philip B. ‘s Productions I would like to share with you.
