在伏爾塔瓦河畔歌唱

捷克的布拉格,是歐洲的歷史文化名城,在音樂上出過許多杰出的人物,在文學上,與布拉格有關聯的名作家也不少,比如卡夫卡出身在布拉格、米蘭·昆德拉畢業于布拉格查理大學。布拉格的美,不僅僅在于幾個著名的景點,如果你去游玩,慢慢品味,就會發現城里的大街小巷都有自己獨特的味道,如果巧,你還能碰到來自浙江青田的陳金妹。

陳金妹最近有點忙。聽說家鄉浙江青田推出了“僑聲贊祖國·我的中國心”全球網絡拉歌活動征集令,她心里有點忐忑。對于即將到來的新中國70周年華誕,陳金妹一直想有所表示;可如果要參加全球拉歌,她又怕自己唱不好。

陳金妹在捷克華人圈里小有名氣,她是KK EUROPE 國際進出口有限公司董事長,也是捷克華人華僑婦女聯合會會長,還兼任著歐洲華人華僑聯合總會常務副主席、世界傳統文化研究院捷克分院院長。

對于拉歌這件事,陳金妹特別上心。問了一圈周遭的朋友,尤其是旅捷華人華僑婦女聯合會的姐妹們,大家幾乎給了她統一的意見: “不但要唱,還要唱出自己的心聲,唱出自己最好的水平。即便是唱不好,多多練習也能熟能生巧。”按照陳金妹的說法,在外的華人華僑們都是吃苦過來的,相比起在異鄉謀生之艱難,唱歌就是一個最小最小的考驗了。

至于唱什么歌,陳金妹早就想好了:“就唱《我愛你,中國》!”她覺得,沒有一首歌能像這首歌一樣,表達海外兒女對祖國的深情熱愛,表達對祖國日新月異的驕傲和自豪,也只有這首歌才能表達所有在外華人華僑對祖國美好明天的祝福。

于是在布拉格老城廣場邊上,以捷克的母親河伏爾塔瓦河為背景,旅捷華人華僑婦女聯合會的姐妹們唱響了“……我愛你青松氣質,我愛你紅梅品格,我愛你家鄉的甜蔗,好像乳汁滋潤著我的心窩……”

這成為青田推出“僑聲贊祖國·我的中國心”全球網絡拉歌活動征集令后,第一個傳回家鄉的視頻作品。

溫溪鎮是青田縣中心城區的重要組成部分,位于青田、永嘉、鹿城、甌海四縣交界處,有著“浙南明珠”的美譽。這個人口只有6萬多的小鎮,也是麗水唯一一個入海港口。

1963年8月出生的陳金妹之前在鎮上的一家企業里做會計。四平八穩的工作讓她每天除了和數字打交道,剩下的時間就是聚聚朋友,照顧家庭,甚是愜意。

20世紀90年代初,青田掀起了一股出國的熱潮,眾多鄉鄰外出創業,快30歲的陳金妹也踏上了出國路,前往人生地不熟的西歐國家——德國。在途中經歷了漫長的23天,周轉了3個國家,一路顛簸終于到達了德國著名城市紐倫堡。時值寒冬臘月,大雪紛飛,零下十幾度,準備不足的陳金妹冷得瑟瑟發抖。“來接我的是我的同學徐麗敏,久久對望后,說出了我至今還記得的一句嘆息:‘哎……我立刻領悟到,我的艱辛生活就要開始了。”陳金妹回憶說。

面對一系列現實問題,陳金妹壓力重重,睡不好食無味,陷入了茫然。放棄了國內的工作和生活,千辛萬苦來到德國,難道就這樣輕易回去?不!好強的陳金妹暗下決心,從零開始,一定要做出一番成績。

到德國后,她上午在麥當勞打工,下午則在菲律賓人開的服裝店當店員,晚上則要去一家土耳其餐廳做跑堂,以勤奮換生存。一天工作十多個小時,還自學德語,只用了一年,陳金妹和當地人的溝通就基本不成問題。

1995年,陳金妹的丈夫抵達捷克,本準備自捷克轉簽德國與妻子團聚,沒想到,他被經濟轉型中的捷克市場所打動,選擇留下來。被丈夫所說服,陳金妹放棄已經逐漸熟悉的環境,從德國轉到捷克。“那時的捷克就像改革開放后的中國一樣,市場經濟發展起來,讓我們很有似曾相識的感覺。”陳金妹說,當時家鄉青田也正面臨著巨變,1993年,溫溪鎮成為浙江省青田經濟開發區所在地,到后來發展“臨港經濟”“物流經濟”,與溫州對接,建設保稅物流倉儲配送中心,“捷克這頭和家鄉那頭的變化同樣巨大”。

轉型中的捷克,在政治、經濟等各個領域都存在著大量的空間,陳金妹看中的是捷克這個東歐要地的自由貿易行業,“在捷克各地進行考察,幾乎跑遍了整個捷克,最后才下定決心要在這里做自由貿易。”

經過十多年的發展,她的公司在捷克境內建立了30 多個批發站,為100 多個連鎖超市提供商品,在東歐華人貿易界享有較高美譽度。“每個國家、每個時代都蘊藏著成功的機遇,而我們女子并不輸于男子,只要肯拼搏、肯思考、不怕苦,我們女同胞也能在異國他鄉走出一條成功的坦途。”

客居異鄉多年,在陳金妹的心中,家逐漸化為一個熟悉又陌生、遙遠又親切的身影。“外面再好,也是想家的。”陳金妹說,自己即便輾轉搭乘多次航班,只要能回到溫溪住上幾天,心中就會有一種美好的感覺。可這種感覺在返程前又會變得沉重起來,有一個聲音會在耳邊響起——我能為家鄉做一點什么?

2005年,陳金妹和丈夫決心回國投資創業。“當年出國,坐在飛機上忐忑不安,心里想這一去不知什么時候才能重回家鄉,想著想著,我的眼淚就出來了。出去時,是抱著破釜沉舟的決心的,以為再難回中國。可沒想到,經過十多年奮斗,我又回來了——回家的感覺真好。”

2019年中央廣播電視總臺春節聯歡晚會現場,有這樣一群特殊的觀眾,他們是中央廣播電視總臺邀請的三個海外華人觀眾家庭代表,分別來自美國()、菲律賓()和捷克()。來自捷克()的就是陳金妹家庭。在海外生活多年,這是他們第一次在春晚現場和家人度過除夕夜。

陳金妹在捷克是個紅人。

她為很多女同胞提供服務與幫助,不但關愛弱勢群體,還樂善好施,在當地華人心中有很高的聲譽。2011年10月8日,在捷克華僑華人婦女聯合會換屆時,陳金妹全票當選為第三屆會長。

旅捷華人華僑婦女聯合會成立于2004年7月28日,是在捷克內務部正式注冊獲批準的第二個旅捷華僑華人僑團。在伏爾塔瓦河畔唱響《我愛你,中國》的女士們,就都來自這個聯合會。她們積極參加布拉格各國使節舉辦的每年一次的圣誕慈善義賣活動,組織人員到當地老人院、孤兒院、華文學校、華人幼兒園、中華武術學校進行慰問與捐贈,忙得不亦樂乎。陳金妹認為,華僑像聯通海內外的一座橋、一條路,華僑們可以通過民間文化交流、聯誼,促進國與國之間的民間交流與溝通。

Chen Jinmei now lives in Prague, Czech. She is a native of Qingtian, a rural county in southern Zhejiang. People from Qingtian are a major part of some Chinese communities in Europe. In fact, Qingtian natives are now in 120 countries and territories across the world. In July 2019, Qingtian launched a campaign asking overseas Qingtian natives to sing songs in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Peoples Republic of China. The county gave a list of 13 well-known songs. Participants could sing one of the songs and send the video back home. The organizers would decide who would be winners.

Chen is a prominent figure in the Chinese community in Prague. She operates an international trade business and plays a key part in the overseas Chinese community affairs in Prague and across Europe.

After learning about the singing event, she made an inquiry among her friends in general and among the members of the Overseas Chinese Women Federation of Czech. They all wanted to have a go at singing of their motherland. They picked ?from the list.

None of them had known much about singing, but they practiced hard, wishing to do their best, firmly believing that singing of their motherland was the best way to express their pride of Chinas successful modernization and express their wish for a better tomorrow. They got their singing videoed on a public square by the Vltava River in old downtown of Prague. It turned out that the video they sent back to Qingtian was the first contribution the organizers received after the singing competition was announced in July.

Born in 1963 and brought up in Wenxi Town with a population of 60,000, Chen worked as an accountant for a business in her younger years. In the early 1990s, people in Qingtian began to go abroad on a large scale. The 29-year-old Chen went alone to Germany where she worked in restaurants. In 1995, her husband came from China to join her. He stopped in Czech on his way to Germany. It was Czech that attracted his attention. He saw business opportunities in the Eastern European country where economy was undergoing restructuring. Chen came over to Czech to join her husband. “I saw familiarities in Czech I had experienced back home in our hometown. Market economy was taking off just like in China.” Chen and her husband did a thorough field study across Czech and made up their mind. In 1997, the couple set up KK Europe, a company engaged in international trade. Over a period of 10 plus years, the company set up 30 wholesale outlets across Czech, making itself into a major supplier to franchised 100 supermarkets.

Chen is a high-profile leader in the Chinese community in Czech. Since 2011, she has been serving as president of the Overseas Chinese Women Federation of Czech. The federation encourages Chinese women to merge into Czech society and love Czech meanwhile encourages them to love China, work hard and contribute to local economic and social development. The federation also helps women protect their legal rights and interests. Chen was instrumental in setting up an international school in Prague and setting up , a Chinese newspaper that serves the local Chinese community. She and her husband have invested in Qingtian since 2005. She is also an overseas ambassador of culture for Qingtian, promoting the Belt & Road Initiative and enhancing ties between Prague and Qingtian.
