guess best way to leave HK now is to take a ferry / bus to Macau or Shenzhen and take a plane from there.

Not many people outside of HK really understood the situation Hongkongers are facing. They have been suppressed badly and the extradition bill is merely a catalyst that triggered all the emotions within them.

 

Singaporeans can work hard to afford a HDB and with grants. However, Hong Kong govt sold their soul to property moguls for money. No matter how hard the younger gen work, many will never ever be able to afford to buy their own house. That's including professionals. If they are lucky, a shoebox apt. That's only maybe. Queue for public housing is years and years, almost impossible.

 

Since HK returned to China, 150 mainlanders are shipped to HK everyday. That is no small number. They are given the benefits and accommodation that were meant for ordinary citizens.

 

For many, the future is already bleak. With China on the horizon, future gen will have it even tougher. Maybe no future to speak of liao.

 

This extradition bill is just CL's way of sucking up to Beijing. Failed sensationally and no way back for her anymore.

It is a miracle Hongkongers took so long to oppose the govt. I agree with everybody that they have no chance of winning against Beijing but they are making their voices heard as much as possible.

Ya. I was lucky to arrive in HKIA on 12 aug at 1230. Missed the crowd completely. It was just a few tens of people there.

 

Blocking people is too much.

 

Like I said earlier, the faster the hongkees recognize they belong to China the better. No way will China ever give in the whatever crap they try to pull.

[bigcry] the realities of being a small nation.

first do singapore no harm... we dont pay them sky high salaries to make pork soup jokes and middle kingdom speeches unnecessarily. whatever their real tots (or self importance) may be, sometimes no need to shout.

 

did you notice kishore said much less.. only basically that we should be more measured in what we said wrt larger nations. and he really kenna for it.. all come out shoot him though he is one of the few seen as a "thinker" outside of singapore establishment., not ownself praise ownself type.

 

has sg position changed ... or just some people can say ... some people cannot say. [lipsrsealed]

I think in your books, the salaries we are shelling out to the ministers is for one thing only, keep China happy or at least avoid pissing them off.

 

Say something and China ignores/does not react = ok to say.

 

Say something and China takes exception = the remarks were unacceptable and we should not have said it.

 

Really?

Someone is missing the point completely and raising a totally irrelevant issue here.

 

It's fine. Added to ignore list.

I have sympathy for HK youths who have to live in very small flats. The situation seems bleak since they do not have a democratic feedback system for the incumbent government, and they can't change to another government who can promise to build more and bigger home for them.

 

However, violence should not be a way of feedback. Something must have worked in an equally undemocratic mainland because I recall in a 2017 survey, China has one of the highest global rates of home ownership for young people (19 to 35 IIRC).

 

Anecdotally, I have a business associate in Shanghai whose daughter just bought an apartment with a view of the Huangpu River. She works in a bank with approximately 8 years of work experience. I understand she took a big loan with her husband though.

 

I don't know how, but maybe Hong Kongers don't need to resort to violence for their housing malaise.

if that demographics article from scmp is true, then most of these fellas have tertiary education and they are meant to be future of HKG.

 

Since occupy till now, with the arrest, violence, suppression, ridicule; IMO those up there just want to reap whatever they can in the last remaining 28yrs and exit when they feel like it, and thus really trashing the future there is with hkg.

 

Oh well, as some would say, the 150 daily would replace this next generation.

You don’t understand... it’s all RELATIVE. Why do Paris people protests? If u compare their life with India, Paris is like heaven. People protests when they see their life getting worse...simple as that. Hong Kong was going downhill for sometime.

 

I bet life in Hong Kong is still much better than many parts of China.... but u know that comparison is pointless...

No need to wait 28 yrs so long. If CL go ahead with her HK$500b land reclamation project, HK reserve would go other places liao.

Here's a video from earlier today
