Kowloon City – the Next Tsim Sha Tsui/Causeway Bay?

Financial Secretary, John Tsang said in his blog post (is that the only way the HKSAR government know how to communicate with the people?) that the new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal (a white elephant BIG time!) will bring about a lot of tourists and business to the surrounding area and the eateries in Kowloon City are very important in terms of attracting more tourists!

He said that Kowloon City should turn itself into a “Town of Delicacy” and should learn from Lan Kwai Fong’s success in promoting it as an attraction of Hong Kong.

The restaurants in Kowloon City are a great mix! You can enjoy Islam food, Thai cuisines, Hunan spicy meal, or anything you can think of, and end your feast with a uniquely Hong Kong desert – Chilled Mango Sago Cream with Pomelo, or if you dare durian pancake!

BUT what does John Tsang really mean? Did he mean knocking down all the old buildings (great for photos!) which were limited in height as our old airport was right in the middle of Kowloon City? Did he mean turning all these independent local eateries into chain restaurants where by characters will be completely lost and leave our Kowloon City with vibrant colour a soulless town just like Mong Kok, Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay where by you can find no restaurant but those chains that are not only soulless but charge you obscene amount of money with a tinny portion that barely fills a 5-year-old’s stomach?

I always love going to local independent eateries. The fun part is ordering your food! Watch the waiter scribbling down the names of the dishes in the most unusual calligraphic style (or shorthand) on a piece of paper which will be sent to the kitchen is just so very charming in its own way! In a chain? You order something, the waiter write down a bunch of meaningless numbers on the order form (or ask you to tick the boxes on the order form, as most chains do) and punch your order into the computer, and a soulless piece of paper gets ejected out from the machine…

You just can’t beat the human touch of these little shops and restaurants!

Another thing is, once chain restaurants started to open in Kowloon City, you are guaranteed to see chain cosmetic shops, chemists, chain jewelry shops, luxurious accessories shops crowding over. Little independent shops and restaurants will be forced out as these chains and international brands can pay rent that no one can afford. There is no doubt that in five years time Kowloon City will be just another Mong Kok, Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay. New statistic shows that there are MORE jewelry shop than convenient stores in Causeway Bay! That’s single-industry economy for you!

The HKSAR Government is working tirelessly to kill off all the non-China-focused services and businesses. Walk down the street in those tourists areas, nothing is meant for the people of Hong Kong nor any tourists in the world but Chinese “tourists”! At the moment, tourism contributes no more than 4% to our GDP, but by converting each and every inch of Hong Kong into “China Focused Service Zones”, Hong Kong will truly become complete and utterly reliant on China, especially the tourists from China. Then what’s going to happen? The so call “truth” nowadays (i.e. “If it wasn’t for China [to look after Hong Kong], Hong Kong would have been long dead”), will really be the truth!

The HKSAR government does not service the people of Hong Kong, they are appointed by China to serve China and the people of China. All policies favour and are meant to please China! You and I are no different in this particular context: we are the minority and are being discriminated by the HKSAR government – as long as you are not Chinese you are on the same boat with the Hong Kongers with yellow faces – Yup, by Chinese I mean those who’re from China (they never think that Hong Kongres are Chinese anyway, unless Chinese need Hong Kong for example when there’s a flood or earthquake).

Third line: Write your posts in Tibetan! Idiot!
Fourth line: Why use Chinese (language)? Speaking Chinese (language) and writing Chinese (language), (to) crticise China, you are a stupid XXXX!

BTW, please respect us Hong Kongers. Just like we won’t look at an American or Aussie and say “you were English too!”: Please Stop pointing at Hong Kongers and call them Chinese, it is an insult!

No More Chinese Barbarians

Chip Tsao’s recent piece titled “Declare War on Barbarians” sums it all up: why Hong Kongers should stop “tolerating” the so-called cultural difference the Chinese keep claiming…

Behaviours that disturb the public… parents clamoring and assisting their offspring defecate in shopping malls, is not “culture”. There is no such culture call “queue-jumping culture” and “shouting culture” does not exist either. These are absence of “culture” and barbaric behaviours. From now on, we are done with tolerating, we should continue to “discriminate”. The civilised world and the people living in civilisation should declare war on Barbarians!

I can’t agree with him more. Those who try to defend the Chinese when Hong Kongers condemn their “uncivilised” behaviours (defecating in public, queue-jumping, etc) always say “Chinese were brought up in a different cultural environment” and that “Hong Kongers should understand, accept and tolerate the cultural differences”.

These are hardly culture, in a nut shell, they are just not a civilised bunch (I didn’t mean all Hong Kongers are gentlemen and ladies, and many of them are far from it). If they listen to criticism and are willing to change, I believe the whole world would not detest Chinese tourists and immigrants! Why is it ok for them to disregard social norms and civilised behaviours? Why people around the world try to correct them get told off and labelled as “discriminate Chinese”?

Coloured skill does not grant you the jail free card for everything you do, I am most aware of this – I’m a Hong Konger after all. Do Chinese simply don’t understand that it is bad do anything they please and disrespect other countries’ rules/laws/norms? I don’t think so. They want to show the world that (because they’ve been suffering for so many years and suppressed by the CCP regime) they are wealthy and rich and wealthy and rich and wealthy and rich and wealthy… Money is the only value they have, and by behaving like Barbarians, they can (a) highlight the fact that they are Chinese (but now spending money in YOUR land); (b) there’s nothing you can do (because they’re spending money to BUILD you economy); (c) no one dares to upset the Chinese government by banning Chinese tourists (because they have money and they control the world); (d) the world owes the Chinese (but now they are rich and wealthy so the world needs Chinese).

It only takes one thing: the whole world stand up against this sick mentality and turn around to BUILD THEIR OWN ECONOMIES and stop bending over backwards to China for the short term gain. It is tough, but no economy can strive for eternity. Adjustments are essential, what goes up comes down! Once you grow a pair and realise the fact that China is going down, those behaviours will no longer be tolerated (shouldn’t have been at the first place). Hopefully, Chinese will eventually stop being pricks and misbehaving.

Chinese love using the word “discriminate”. Whenever they do not have the upper hand or when they know they’re in the wrong, they will turn around and blame you for discriminating them. Hong Kongers have a saying “if it’s head, you win; if it’s tail, I lose” – this is exactly it.

Chinese and China – Experts in Moving the Goal Posts

Here’s an article in today’s Bloomberg News:

China Rejects Open Nomination for Election of Hong Kong Leader

The Hong Kong public can’t nominate candidates for the next chief executive election under the city’s de facto constitution, China’s top official in the former British colony said, rejecting a lawmaker’s proposal.

The city’s Basic Law states that candidates for the chief executive position have to be nominated by a “broadly representative” committee, Zhang Xiaoming, director of China’s Liaison Office in Hong Kong, said in an open letter to Alan Leong, the head of the Civic Party.

Zhang’s comments are the clearest China has made in rejecting demands from Hong Kong opposition lawmakers to allow for democracy in line with international standards in 2017, when it has pledged to allow election of the city’s leader. Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, who was picked by a committee of billionaires, professionals and lawmakers, is facing rising calls to start consultation on arranging the vote.

“The proper way forward is to follow the Basic Law and the National People’s Congress Standing Committee’s procedures, rather than straying from the law and going the wrong way,” Zhang said in the statement published on the office’s website, as he rejected Leong’s invitation to discuss the proposal at a seminar.

Leung said in an interview in June he wants to deliver on the electoral reforms, though increased democracy may lead to China’s refusal to appoint a leader elected by the city’s people. Allowing for a full exercise in democracy in Hong Kong will also contrast with the political system in China, which has been ruled by the Communist Party since 1949.

Pro-democracy groups in Hong Kong have suggested options including opening the nomination to candidates who receive support from at least 2 percent of registered voters.

China’s “One Country, Two Systems” policy granted Hong Kong its own legal system under the Basic Law for 50 years from 1997. The city allows residents civil liberties including a free press and freedom of assembly not permitted in the mainland.

Basically what China’s said was “Anything that is not stated in the Basic Law is not allowed” – Hang on a minute, Basic Law is a constitution for Hong Kong but it was NOT drafted by the people of Hong Kong and we as Hong Kongers have NO right to interpret or amend it but China has. Mind you, Chinese are the experts in moving the goal posts, so no matter what you do or say, they’ll find a way to “win the argument”.

Now, the Basic Law didn’t say anything about people of Hong Kong are allowed to breath, eat, drink, etc. We’re all breaching the law! Hurrah!

What a whole load of rubbish. By the time they’ve completed their colonisation scheme (with substantial amount of new immigrants in HK who are all CCP members/brainwashed to trust nobody but the party), of course China will have no problem about “giving” Hong Kong democracy and universal suffrage, they’ve got a lot of Chinese voting the way China wants it!

Democracy is never given, it’s something that people fight for.

BTW, if one day, Article 23 is passed, this blog will be gone and so would I…

SHOCKING! Alpais Lam’s Incident Escalate – Death Threat!

Alpais Lam Wai-sze, an ordinary primary school teacher, received the letter below which basically says that Chinese communist party is great, and it is wrong to be anti-communist, and the pro-China/pro-communist groups are the only ones that can ensure Hong Kong is safe. This person even threaten Ms Lam that he/they will kill her. The letter included a crafting-knife blade.

This is death threat! Ms Lam will be reporting the case to the police (btw, the person/people who wrote this letter called them “POLISH”), but I guarantee you the HKSAR police will do absolutely nothing!

This is, to me, a clear political suppression and reminds me of the Cultural Revolution in China.

Some suggests that Ms Lam should seek political asylum, I am not sure if this will work, but what else can Ms Lam do?

This should not have happened, only because China took over Hong Kong and want to turn Hong Kong into part of Communist China. 1-country-2-system? Long gone. Autonomy? Long gone. Whoever trusts Chinese and the Communist are fools! The British should not have let the Communist get what they wanted…

Communist wants to set an example so NO ONE ELSE would dare to oppose China or say a word that is against China/Communist. This time it’s Ms Lam, but it could well be you and me soon. Just think about it…

People started the White House petition, which may sound absurd to you, but this needs to be taken to the international level. I hope you’ll sign the petition, purely because you think that freedom of speech is important and the Communist China has gone way too far…

I’m worry, not just about Ms Lam, but Hong Kong in general – my beautiful home…

Not Only HKers Want Independency!

HKU Discriminates HKers and Favours Chinese

Hong Kong University completed its Residential Colleges on Lung Wah Street. The allocation of dormitory is a blatant discrimination against Hong Kong students. HKU have long been saying that they will resolve the problem of a shortage of dormitory space, but what the university has done is the complete opposite. The new residential colleges do not only reserve less dormitory space for local students in Hong Kong, the police even put students from China in a separate category, which means when it comes to allocating dormitory space, there are THREE categories: Hong Kong students, international students, and China students, with an aimed allocation ratio of 1:1:1. This is basically offering privilege to China students who should logically be grouped as “international students” (given that their parents do not pay tax to Hong Kong which is only fair that they are not eligible for the education that is funded by the Hong Kong SAR government at the same price as the local students). To make this worse, the university plans to reserve 50% of the dormitory space for post-graduate students: please bear in mind that 50% of post-graduate students in Hong Kong University are from China! HKU’s policies on dormitory allocation is complete and utterly biased and favours students from China and discriminate the local students!

It doesn’t end here! Hong Kong local students are NOT allowed to apply a space in this dormitory, but non-locals can.

Local university students in Hong Kong are clearly not the priorities to the local universities. Those who keep saying that those who are qualified to student their Masters and PhD, no matter where they come from should be allowed to study in Hong Kong. Hey, as far as I know, US and UK have policies to make sure that the locals get priorities – for example, international students have to secure better grades than the locals if they intend to study in the same university, international students have to pay substantially more tuition fees than the locals. This is not the same in Hong Kong!

One thing you need to know, students from China can stay in Hong Kong, after seven years, they can become Hong Kong citizens and get HKSAR passports yet still hold their China passports – people from any other countries can’t become HK citizens unless you go through the neutralisation process.

Sending the massive amount of immigrants isn’t quite enough. It’s not fast enough. By the time a “democratic election” is held (if China really want to prevent Occupy Central from happening, they’d better act quick), China needs to make sure that there will be a majority number of “Hong Kongers” who will “elect” the candidate they want to govern Hong Kong. Colonisation is already a nice way of describing what China’s doing to Hong Kong.

Playing the colonisation game, China’s the best! Look at Tibet! It’s in fact ethnic cleansing!

Only because we share similar complexion and hair colour with Chinese, doesn’t mean Hong Kongers are Chinese. Chinese always use this superficial and naive way of differentiating different races. In fact, they try to blur the difference between ethnicity and national, and often tell Hongkies off for not “agreeing” that we are Chinese. Well, again, they should really go tell Japanese and Korean that they are Chinese too!

Erasing HK Race – First Start with Killing Cantonese

According to the Statistics Department, the percentage of Hong Kongers who can speak Mandarin went up from 25% in 1996 to 50% last year, but the percentage of Hong Kongers who can speak Cantonese (our official language and mother tongue) fell!

China’s invasion or colonisation plan is progressive yet in massive scale:

– Make sure that the people of Hong Kong feel (or fear) that without China, Hong Kong cannot survive

– Once this concept is embedded in the majority of the Hong Kongers (in fact the whole world), they can begin ordering the HKSAR government to “promote” the importance of Mandarin

– If you’ve read ancient Chinese poems, especially Tong poems, you’ll find that they rhyme a lot better if you read them out in Cantonese than Mandarin. Mandarin, is really not a Chinese language, it is the language that was modified based on Manchurian’s mother tongue in Qing. The Chinese back in those days for some reasons prefer to change their own language and appearance (having queue – aka men’s ponytail), and call it “Chinese” so that they don’t feel as bad (Hey! they’re Chinese too, they didn’t invade us, it’s just a change of emperor). Nowadays, Chinese language is taught in Mandarin in HK! Even the government’s website has changed – official languages used to be (as far as I remember) Cantonese and English, but now it says Chinese and English. This may not really mean anything to the non-Chinese speaking community (as they’d say “Cantonese is Chinese too!”), but Cantonese is a language (UN already recognised it!) and that HKers’ mother tongue really is Cantonese. It’s almost like British learning French back in the old days because it’s “the upper class” language (not that Mandarin is upper class by any means) – ridiculous! English is no longer being valued these days, because the whole world is evolving around China, according to China and the western world and of course the HKSAR government. Also, China sees every single British heritage (in fact anything that’s related to the post-handover time) is a disgrace to them, they have no intention for HKers to speak good English – they don’t care if HKers lose their competitiveness because HKers are never one of the Chinese in their eyes. The result is the appalling standard of English, particularly the younger generation.

– Erasing your language is only the beginning. You must have read about how great China is when it comes to censorship. There’s a book on Hong Kong history, the (traditional) Chinese version is being censored and a revised version was published and all the “non-censored” copies were recalled. Now that the English standard is low, the Chinese version available is censored, the Hong Kongers is prevented from reading the real history. Clever, hey?

Another thing I want to point out is that, there are 150 (yes, one hundred fifty) Chinese from across the boarder who can immigrate to Hong Kong EVERY DAY! After 16 years, there are approximately 870,000 Chinese who now call themselves Hong Kongers. Bear in mind, though, Hong Kongers cannot get a China citizenship nor the PRC passport. 870,000 is around 12% of Hong Kong’s current total population!

Imagine, say for example, you’re American…

You walk into your local grocery store, the shop owner and staff there all speak to you in Spanish and when you ask them to speak English, they were in awe.

When you tell foreigners who’re visiting America that you’re from America, and he/she response “Isn’t America part of Mexico?” When you explain that they are two separate country (alright, Hong Kong isn’t independent yet, but give it time), “But your country’s soil is connected to the Mexican soil!”

When your government tell you, Spanish is very important because the amount of trade and the increasing number of Mexican immigrants, you need to accommodate them so all American have to adapt Spanish as their main language.

How’s that make you feel?

To make it worse, you are a loyal countryman, and pay tax on time, never ask anything from government (social benefits, etc), and because of the influx of immigrants who have low (or no) skills, and cannot find job in your country. Your government spend your tax money to provide these foreigners everything they need: medical, education, social welfare, etc. while you are earning so little that you could just pay tax and live a everything bear minimum life (don’t even think about buying a flat)… You call for help and complain about exploitation, these immigrants turn around and tell you “you have to accommodate us, we share the same ethnicity! You should speak our language too because we are so important to your country” and then apply their entire family and sometimes folks from the entire village to move into your country and do exactly the same thing.

Imagine all these have been happening in your country for 16 year. At start this happened slowly but now your neighbouring country is speeding this process up.

You become the minority of your country, yet have to support the majority who invade your country! Shouldn’t you stand up and tell the world that this cannot go on? Even shut down the government and gain your rights back and protect your children from suffering even more server consequences that await them?
