  但此后碰见苏小姐愈觉得局促不安。船又过了锡兰和新加坡,不日到西贡,这是法国船一路走来第一个可夸傲的本国殖民地。船上的法国人像狗望见了家,气势顿长,举动和声音也高亢好些。(钱钟书 - 围城 )

  译文:
  whenever he met Miss Six, he felt even more awkward and ill at ease.The ship passed Ceylon and Singapore and in a few days reached Saigon. This was the first colony since the start of the voyage that the French could boast of as their own. The French on board were like dogs at the sight of their master's home-their chests suddenly filled out, their actions became more arrogant, and the pitch of their voices was raised. (美 Jeanne Kelly, Nathan K.Mao <译> –Fortress Besieged)
