A Chinese (a.k.a. Mainland Chinese) blogger complained about being discriminated by Hong Kongers! Summarising the story below:
In his/her recent trip to Hong Kong, something very upsetting happened to him/her… The blogger and his family (including his/her just over 2-year-old son) went to the Tsui Wah Restaurant (a famour local restaurant chain) on Carnarvon Road around 8-9pm on 9/Feb. They have a habit of carrying a plastic bottle for the child to wee in case they can’t find bathrooms in the public.
The child wanted to have a pee, and the blogger took him to a corner inside Tsui Wah and get ready for his release. The staff in Tsui Wah almost screamed at us “there’s a toilet on the 2nd floor!” Everyone in the restaurant looked at the blogger and the child. The blogger said to the waitress “my child is very young, he might not be able to hold and wet his pants. It’s cold and he may catch a cold!”
Before the waitress could response, another male staff tried to stop the blogger, who wrote “he said that peeing inside the restaurant is not allowed, and it affects other customers or whatever”.
The blogger said: I understand that it (kid peeing in public) is not pleasant, but if the staff really concern about other customers, they should have come over and tell us quietly instead of screaming at us. The truth is, the Hong Kongers are just against Mainland Chinese! We were very upset because of that. Our Lunar New Year’s eve was ruined because of these Hong Kongers who discriminate Mainlanders.
