港大校长徐立之在任逾八年 明年八月期满盼续任
[ 录入者:徐双喜 | 时间:2011-04-12 00:15:13 | 作者:中华徐氏网 | 来源:中华徐氏网 | 浏览:618次 ]

  徐立之说,过去在温哥华过年,多只会全家吃一顿“便饭”,甚少四处拜年,因此回港后不太适应热闹的新年气氛,亦无派利是的习惯,“在餐厅见到其他食客派利是予侍应,亦颇为尴尬”。情人节刚过,被问及有否送太太一个浪漫节目,他故作神秘不愿透露,又笑言彼此已是老夫老妻,不用特地庆祝。

  昨日茶鹸中徐立之与记者交换名片时又透露自己是“卡片收藏家”,办公室已存了逾万张卡片,单面的、有姓无名的、无联络方法的,款式繁多。他又称,早前重遇一名家里制图章的小学同学,对方在年幼时曾赠送他3个图章,“其中两个图章刻了我的中文名;另1个刻有我的英文名”,有关图章伴随他多年,更成为他的另类“签名”,“特别是以前在外国工作时,卡片只印有我英文名,那时每次回国公干,都会预先在卡片背面盖上中文名,就像签名般”。
