Is Dr Benson Yeung The Most Romantic Surgeon Ever?

photo credit: http://www.dgolds.com/ photo to show good use of high-heels, NOT a photo of Dr Yeung, I think

Dr Yeung sincerely believes that diamonds and sex are the world’s two most over-rated items, in this particular order.

It was great fun writing “Moon-Struck”, the short story. It is, however, not without aftermath:


Some readers think Dr Wong and Dr Yeung are the same person. Let me show you what I noticed. “Wong” starts with “Wo” and “Yeung” with “Yeu”. Even though both names end with “ng”, that’s how far the similarity goes. Dr Wong is the busiest surgeon on Pedders Street. Dr Yeung is a not so busy surgeon on Chater Road. Again, the difference is remarkable. Another fundamental difference is that Dr Wong likes poetry and Dr Yeung prefers poultry, equally honorable, but not quite the same thing. Dr Wong has a crush on the sound of high-heels. Dr Yeung doesn’t mind the sound of these, as long as it doesn’t come from the appartment above his between 12 and 7am. If this music happens to come from more than a dozen pairs of these and the symphony is rehearsed during the said time (when he writes his hubs, or sleeps in his hubbing chair), he has been known to exhibit the most unromantic, as well as un-artistic behavior of enlisting the assistance of the local police to execute the unsexy task of silencing these harmonizing high-heels. Dr Wong likes the glistening diamond ear-rings. Dr Yeung sincerely believes that diamonds and sex are the world’s two most over-rated items, in this particular order. Without the need for me to keep going on and on, you can easily see that Dr Wong is not Dr Yeung. However, Dr Wong could well be Dr Yeung’s altered ego or sub-conscious self-image, if you believe in Sigmund Fraud. When we’re into matters like these, I can’t comment further, in case you get to realize that Dr Yeung is still firmly anchored in his oral-fixation stage, or actually cheated at his exam in “human behavior: theory and application”. (Dr Yeung topped his class in the human sexual behavior module and had to face slanderous postulations from jealous classmates that he either cheated and / or practiced various types of sexual perversion. The controversy is still unresolved after thirty years of hot debate during alumni gatherings.)

Some readers think that Dr Yeung must be Mrs Yeung’s puppy, to think of a story like that. It’s an understandable postulation, but simply untrue. Here’s why. Mrs Yeung’s puppy is a three year old bitch, a golden retriever by the name of Bronzy. She is de-sexed, but looks and behaves rather sexy for a dog. Although Dr Yeung can be bitchy like hell in the mornings he hasn’t slept well, he is most often an unexcitable man. He behaves consistently and predictably, like he is de-sexed. However, there’s no clinical record of such past procedure. As far as evidence-based medicine goes, even though doubtful, we have to accept that, for the records, that he has not had such surgery. We have probably digressed enough here. Conclusion: Dr Yeung is, not proven beyond doubt, not Mrs Yeung’s puppy.

Some readers, mostly Dr Yeung’s avid supporters, suggest that Dr Yeung is the most romantic surgeon ever. There is a serious slip in logical deduction in this premise. First, it bases itself on the assumption that Dr Wong and Dr Yeung are the same person. Second, it assumes that Dr Yeung can only write about things that are part of his make-up. Now, one can easily see that the first premise is not true (please refer to the discussion in the second paragraph of this hub). The second premise can’t stand (or even sit on its butt) either. Often fiction writers describe vivid murders and then mincing of body parts of the victims, sometimes in the reversed order. Some of these writers admittedly don’t cook. Others might even faint on the sight of tomato sauce which reminds them of blood. This won’t damage their status or creditability as writers. The truth about Dr Yeung: Dr Yeung is mostly an unromantic person, except when his serious hubbing agitates Mrs Yeung enough to have him banned from hubbing for indefinite periods. He then tries to rectify the situation by pretending to be the second most romantic male (after Richard Gere, without apology) in history. The bursts of romanticism usually would last for 24 hours or so before he becomes the unlovable hubber again. At this juncture, he’d better stop hubbing and offer to take Mrs Yeung out for lunch, before another burst of romanticism is deemed necessary again.

Benson, I wouldnt want to be at your alumni gatherings but if I were assuming that you are using hubbing to be romantic with Mrs Yeung, then I would definitely suggest as a fellow hubber, that you may be suffering from hubstrain.

Hey Benson

Okay, you explained yourself rather well, if not a tad defensive! Haha but certainly you must do a sequel to Dr Wong - he's rather a nice chap. Is Mrs Wong's name Suzy? Just a thought. And one last question, but which surgeon is on the picture? :D

Hi newsworthy,

thanks for commenting. Yes I do suffer from a severe case of hubstrain, which includes strains in the neck, back, wrists and relationships. So fellow-hubbers do look out.

Were those high-heels on your avatar, or am I imagining things?

Hi Cris,

thanks for commenting. The person is the photo is not a surgeon. I think she is a slightly hirsute ballerina.

As they say down south, "no honey" those shoes aren't on my avitar.  If I cant walk in them, I wouldnt use them for anything else. 

But as other hubbers might say: shoes are "irrelavent"

Benson, you did a lot of back peddling, but i am yet to be convinced. Good writers are good liars as well. In the first picture is that you in the background?

Hi Lifebydesign,

the red look's got nothing to do with me except to provoke comments.

Hi CC,

thanks for doubting. I would have done the same. That's not me in the photo. I am three times more handsome and twice more curvy.

I was very relieved to know that wasn't you in the picture. If you were my surgeon and I had just seen that picture assuming it was you, I probably would have cancelled!!! :-)

This is hilarious! And you know how I love to laugh! I'm hooked! I missed the hub this is in reference to, so it appears I have somemore laughing to do.

Great job, benson!

Hi Proud Mom,

thanks for dropping by. The hub in question is "Moon-struck". It may disappoint you as there's nothing hillarious about it. You might smile a little though.

Such a pleasant clarification that gave me many smiles and chuckles over breakfast at the hubstation. Someone, maybe you needs to expand in a hub about the evils of diamonds and what they are costing the world. I've tried shutting my eyes to the "bling" of Nathan Road and what it really means. You have a true comic spirit.

Dear Jerilee Wei,

Sorry that I know little to say about unfair trade and what diamonds are costing the world. I only how what they are costing me, and it's too painful to be writing about it. Can someone else help out with Jerrilee's request?

Adorable! You got me with that photo, love the looks. The boots are so, so so me? It makes me feel better to know that I am not the only one who uses high heels and has bursts of romanticism (and cooking) to get "hubbing time" :)
