US Consulate General VS HKSAR Chief Executive

Not a single time in his term so far (18 months!), CY Leung can go to “listen to the public” without having an army of police officers and many times he had to enter the venues from the back-doors…

Popularity of the CY Leung is probably the lowest in history, and yet he still kids himself that people support him! Guess who goes to show their support?

Thugs! And worst of all, they are paid. In case you worry that the HKSAR government is spending a lot of money on these propaganda (??), they aren’t that expensive: around HK$400 you can hire someone who shout any slogan you want, the team leaders (responsible for mobilising their “followers”) charges HK$1,000 per day. If you’d like them to fight (in fact, it’s beating others up) that’ll cost extra. Perhaps politicians in other countries should learn from CY Leung! Why campaign? Just beat the hell out of your oppositions!

Recently, the new US Consulate General for HK and Macau, Mr Clifford Hart, has been visiting various places – local eateries, book store, etc.

This reminds me of our last governor, Chris Patten. There were small scale protests when he went to “meet the people” during his tenure (in fact, other governors too), but most of the time this is what happened!

CY Leung and the Communist China seem to have too much pride in themselves – “what the Brits could do, Chinese can do better”, said Deng XiaoPing. What a joke! I really wish the book “I Don’t Want to be Chinese Again” was published back then. They could learn a thing or two from it.

On a separate note, there have been lots of rumours suggesting CY Leung is an underground CCP member. The number of underground CCP members in HK? I have no idea! Certainly there are plenty of them – and many of them are very senior and well-respected in the political and business scene…

God bless Hong Kong.

Over and out.

Calling folks from Virginia! I have bad news for you…

Calling folks from Virginia! You are being f—ed by (Mainland) Chinese! It’s only a metaphor! Sorry, please don’t get offended.

I’ve just finished reading an article, and it reminds me of something that I always want to tell people in Virginia state…

Translating names from western languages into Chinese languages is certainly very difficult. I dare say it’s an art! if you use one wrong character the meaning of the name is completely and instantly changed and can become a joke.

Do you know your state HAD a beautiful name in Cantonese? But do you know because of China’s invasion and expansionism, Virginia has become a cursed state? Let me tell you why…

Virginia is “translated” Cantonese as “維珍尼亞洲” – its Romanisation is “Wai4 Zan1 Nei4 Aa3 Zau1”, the meaning of each character:

維:maintain, preserve, safeguard

珍:precious, valuable, rare

尼:(originally) close, near; (derived meaning) Buddhist nun

亞:second, Asia

洲:state, continent

The “Cantonese translation” is very pretty when you pronounce it, and it kind of make Virginia a precious state based on the meaning. In fact, people often associate the characters above to beautiful things.

When we look at Mandarin version of Virginia, you will see this: 弗吉利亞 – in Mandarin, it’s Fu2, Ji2, Ni2, Ya4, Zhou1, here’s the meaning of each character:

弗:negative, not

吉:luck

The rest is the same as Cantonese’s.

Here’s the catch:

If you read the name in Mandarin “Fu Ji Nei” goes together is the same as “unlucky”. Fu sounds kind of like the F word to non-English speakers (maybe to English speakers too). The character 吉 share the same pronunciation as 㓤, which means poke… Now Virginia has become a virgin who gets f—ed and poked in Mandarin, it’s a bit nasty isn’t it?

Do you really still want to learn Mandarin because it’s the mother tongue of 1.3 billion people (if you’ve been to some remote provinces in China, you’d realise that Mandarin actually comes in SOOOOOO many different forms)? Please you need to ask yourself… How many people can speak English, both first or second language?

Over and out!

 

Hollywood Gives in to China

World War Z, a Hollywood production starring Brad Pitt, has given in to China’s censorship. The original plot is about a plague, which started in PRC China, threatens to wipe out humanity.

Paramount Pictures asked the film’s director Marc Forster and his team to cut a special edit of the movie to satisfy Chinese censorship officials. In the China version, the pandemic is called “Moscow flu” and the disease is first discovered by a heroic Chinese scientist.

As PRC is famous for its censorship, which is part of the country’s propaganda to ensure that people in China do not see any negative perception or information about the country and the Communist Party, and promote/boost nationalism to the people in China. By controlling information people in China can receive, they become more numb to whatever happens in the surrounding. China’s tight censorship is the PRC Communist Government’s “preventative measure” to stop any potential outcry for a democratic election that would overthrown the ruling party and corrupted government officials.

World War Z is not the first and certainly will not be the last to give in to the power of money. With a population of 1.4 billion, the financial benefits movie companies could gain by bending themselves over backwards are too significant. However, I could not help to ask the question: is it worth compromising on every level? If a government kills its own people, attempt to colonise and/or wipe out other races (Xijing, Tibet, etc)

Paramount said making a “special version” for the PRC market is worth it because it opens up a new market. Previously, many other movies have done/going to do similar thing and Kowtow to China, including 007: Skyfall, Looper, Cloud Atlas, Iron Man 3, Transformer 4, Men in Black 3, and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.

Only 34 foreign films are allowed to be released in the PRC, hence Hollywood production companies have begun partnering with PRC companies to avoid being limited by such quota. According to newspapers, some industry players have already expressed their concerns over their freedom of creation would be affected by such partnership, but movie companies still insist! After all it’s a money business!

PRC China’s movie companies are getting bigger. Dalian Wanda Group acquired AMC, the second largest cinema chain, is a good example demonstrating PRC’s commercial strength. Eventually, it will become the dominate power in the world.

From my point of view, Hollywood gave in to this unjust censorship is a clear message to the world: China’s expansionism and world domination are becoming so important that the world is willing to sacrifice everything (I’m not referring to people’s dignity and principle) just for money.

Just a thought: from an ordinary person (i.e. not expert in economies and finance, etc), wouldn’t the US benefit from the fall of China, one of the biggest debtors to the US? Isn’t the cheap labour in China and the dumping (of goods) by Chinese companies causing trade deficit, decline of the manufacturing industry, etc? Shouldn’t the people in the US be more angry about matters like this? After all, it’s about their bread being taken away. Free economy works perfectly in an ideal world (just like communism works in utopia), but there has to be some sort of interference/regulation by the government when things are starting to go pear shape, especially when the people locally are suffering…

I can’t help but think that if one keeps on giving in to unreasonable demands by another, he will be walked all over one day! Time will tell what kind of nation China is – Hong Kong has been suffering from this totalitarian dictatorship for 16 years, will the world go down as well because all they could see is money?

National Education Centre Asks Schools for Endorsement

Following on my previous post about National and Moral Education Curriculum, despite the fact that the Curriculum is quietly embedded in various subjects, the National Education Centre continues to work on establishing a new subject for students in Hong Kong in order to further brainwash children.

SupportNationalEducationAbove picture obtained from House News, for original article in Cantonese/Chinese, please refer to here.

The National Education Centre issued letters to all schools in Hong Kong, which provides a simple letter that says:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Since the National Education Centre always strives to promote national education and national quality education, I am happy to support the Centre to continue servicing the education sector and its continuous operation.

Best regards,

____________

Cheung Yui-Fai, a liberal studies teacher, posted the letter onto the Facebook page of National Education Parents’ Concern Group. As a committee member of the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union, Cheung questioned the agenda behind the Centre’s letter – does this mean the biased National Education Curriculum is returning in full form (base on the “coincident” of the HKSAR government’s mentioned National Education in its Human Rights report which was submitted to the United Nation recently).

Cheung also added that the Centre has not done anything ever since the people won the “war” which forced the HKSAR government to “shelved” the curriculum.

On the second page of the letter issued by the Centre, a survey asked the schools if they have participate any of the activities organised by the Centre and what recommendations they have for the activities.

In the Human Rights report submitted to the United Nation, Chapter 2.21, says “This new initiative is expected to be implemented in the 2013/14 school year to further enhance the elements of national education”, and completely omitted the fact that the HKSAR government has announced the curriculum is shelved in September 2012.

Communist Chinese Rule Hong Kong

1st March 2013, Friday

Communist Youth League of China’s Plan to Rule HK – Ethnic Cleansing

We often hear that the ultimate targets for Mainland Chinese students are the US and the UK and Hong Kong is only a stepping stone. This is correct, but is only the partial fact.

The top trench of Chinese students, of course, leaves China. Those who have strong family background (i.e. parents being senior government officials) will return to China so to become the new officials. The truth is, 80 million of China’s 1.3 billion populations are Communist Party members, and the second generation of the low to middle ranking government officials wants to get “benefits” too.

It is not very difficult for Chinese to study abroad, and it is not especially hard for them to find a job in the West either. However, the high tax rate and mediocre salary in the West, plus their level of English isn’t universally high and the most difficult part of all is to integrate into the western society. This conclusion is based on the observation that Chinese students in Hong Kong failed to integrate into Hong Kong, and those in the rest of the world tend to gather in their local China Towns. It shows that the number of Chinese students who can integrate into the western world is limited. Given the number of Chinese students in other countries, the number of those who make it is still substantial.

Where in the world is easy to immigrate, with low income tax rate and a government that favours Chinese? The answer is Hong Kong! Chinese who study in the UK cannot apply for neutralisation unless they have been living in the UK for ten years. But in Hong Kong, all it takes is to study a MA, a one year programme, and apply for work visa and they can immediately become Hong Kong residents. This is the same as hospital selling labour ward space to Chinese and give a Hong Kong ID card to the new born for free: universities sell their degrees and attach a “free” Hong Kong ID card. As the number of highly-educated people that work in hospitals is very limited compare to those who teach at universities, every time when people raise questions about the university selling degree to Chinese, people jump out to defend this system and glorify it as a measure to “resolve the aging population in Hong Kong” and to “introduce top quality professionals to Hong Kong”.

China’s ethnic cleansing plan on Hong Kong started way back. In recent years, you can see a lot of young men and women, the children of senior, middle and low ranking government officials in China, in Hong Kong. These people came to Hong Kong to study, and obtain their Hong Kong ID and take the Hong Kong government funded scholarships to study their Masters in Ivy League, Cambridge and Oxford. They then returned to Hong Kong as professionals, for example, barristers, solicitors and iBankers, and live in luxurious places. Those who are not professionals, take a linguistic degree, study in translation, work in the cultural and arts space, or even become columnists. Why would they take up any opportunities in Hong Kong? The answer is simple: Hong Kong is way better than the hell China. A Hong Kong ID card is almost like insurance to them – for example, Lai ChangXing and Gu KaiLai both hold Hong Kong ID cards.

The HKSAR Government Scholarship Fund is a reward for the Communist Youth League of China. You don’t believe it? Let me explain to you. A few years ago, CEPA secretly introduced a scheme that is tailored for Mainland Chinese, allowing them to convert their licences to Hong Kong driving licenses for free. In less than six years, a total over 85,000 Hong Kong driving licenses were issued to Mainland Chinese (there are only 400,000 private cars in Hong Kong, there is no need to issue so many driving licenses) [my note: HK’s road system and traffic regulations are very different from those in China]. According to BBC’s report in February 2012, a record of over 13,000 Hong Kong driving license holders attempted to convert into the UK driving license in two years. A tiny Hong Kong bet the rest of the world in this incident. Years ago, we have predicted that this new measure is for Mainland Chinese to con the world. People didn’t believe in us, and eventually the UK government amended its law this January to close the loophole which seems to be targeting Hong Kong: “to convert to UK driving license applicants must passed the driving test at the issued destination” – which means Hong Kong license issued to individuals who took the driving test in Hong Kong, but not Hong Kong license converted from a China license, can be converted into UK license – A tailor made measure targeting Mainland Chinese students.

In time, the Communist Youth League of China and offspring of low to middle ranking China government officials will come to Hong Kong to study (for example, international school), then endorsed by the HKSAR government to study abroad, and return to Hong Kong as Hong Kong permanent residence to teach National and Moral Education for a couple years. They will also at the same time, participate in arts competitions, join advisory organization, HKSAR’s Central Policy Unit, and all of a sudden become part of the HKSAR government, and in a few years the leaders of Hong Kong to rule Hong Kong.

These have been happening for at least eight to ten years. Many genuine Hong Kongers still dream about “establishing a free China”, and fail to realize that China has already successfully planted the seeds of and executing “the great plan of Communists ruling Hong Kong”!

Chinese Being Discrimated by Hong Kongese – Wee in Public is Not Allowed!

A Chinese (a.k.a. Mainland Chinese) blogger complained about being discriminated by Hong Kongers! Summarising the story below:

Image

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.

2012 Report to Congress U.S.-CHINA ECONOMIC AND SECURITY REVIEW COMMISSION

I bumped into a Cantonese blog yesterday, and think this is a minor positive progress.

Approximately 30 pages in the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission Report are reporting on Hong Kong, a few key points are highlighted below:

1. Pro-Beijing parties enjoyed a financial advantage over their rivals, which enabled them to build extensive logistical networks to mobilize voters and exploit Hong Kong’s electoral peculiarities. (p.267)

2. Babies born in the territory enjoy the privileges of Hong Kong citizenship: access to the city’s superior health and education systems, and greater freedom to travel and settle inside and outside China.(p.267)

3. So-called ‘‘birth-tourism’’ quickly became a hot-button issue, with some going so far as to depict mainland Chinese as ‘‘locusts.’(p.268)

4. Censorship controversies at the South China Morning Post, one of Hong Kong’s most prominent newspapers, increased following the appointment of Wang Xingwei as editor-in-chief in January 2012. Mr. Wang, a former China Daily reporter, concurrently serves as a member of Jilin Province’s Political Consultative Conference, 424 a Chinese Communist Party-selected and -controlled organization. In June, he was accused of censoring coverage of the death of Li Wangyang, a well-known Chinese dissident. (p.270)

5. The city’s public schools were going to be required to begin teach- ing a course in ‘‘moral and national education’’ by 2015, which some called a thinly veiled ‘‘brainwashing’’ effort evocative of the Cultural Revolution.(p.272)

6. Beijing’s increasing influence in Hong Kong’s affairs calls into question the security of advanced technology products exported from the United States to Hong Kong.(p.273)

7. Congress reauthorize Section 301 of the U.S.-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992, which requires the U.S. secretary of State to submit an annual report to Congress on political, economic, and social developments in Hong Kong of relevance to the United States. This should include reporting on mainland interference in Hong Kong’s internal political affairs and Chinese efforts to leverage the territory as a platform for the internationalization of the RMB.(p.274)

8. Congress review the U.S.-Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992 to deter- mine its continued applicability. In particular, Congress should review the security of advanced technology products exported from the United States to Hong Kong.(p.274)

9. Members of Congress, when visiting mainland China, also visit Hong Kong and that Congress encourage senior administration officials, including the secretary of State, to make visits to Hong Kong part of their travel.(p.274)

Glad to know that the US is monitoring Hong Kong closely, and I hope the US will actually react and stop the PRC from further interfering Hong Kong’s autonomy, and gradually Hong Kong can go independent!
