Profanity for HK Snob

The Key words you should be aware when you come to HK. You may have to learn a few words before you enter this place.
Giki Giki
As What I had mentioned , I used to Travel on ship aboard, so I have learn a few intention al work like “Giki Giki” means go whoring, or go fuck with some one…

This is claimed to be an international understanding word for sailor and prostitutes working at the harbour or wharf all over the world…

Another world is “Whorbitting” a compound word for Whore and Orbiting, this means we go and walk and watch for the whore but never confirm the sex deal. That is like we are a planet rotating around the Whore in an orbit.

Another work is sexperience, with someone I used to talk to…That is to describe your experience on sex…

Another word is PK which I started to us in 1987.. This PK is a short form or English Abbreviation for Puk Kai. I am not sure if I am one of the earliest one to use this word but since then the DJ in the Radio station started talking this word.

Also I invented this word CYPLCK…. In Cantonese is is “ Ching Yat Pok Lun Tzat Kai” If you are Cantonese you will know this is meaning” you really a drop dead in the street kind of People” It is a bad word and very offensive word.

Sea Food Hunt
Another word is definitely invented by me is “ Sea food Hunt”, we pronounce it in English “ Sea food Hunt” meaning that you are a kind of fuzzy people who is really an ass hole.

If you are a foreigner, please do not talk to any Cantonese “Sea Food hunt” I am sure he will be annoyed.
In Cantonese, “Sea Food” means ass hole, “Hunt” means Itchy!
There are a few common words that we have to know in Cantonese.

It is commonly be heard in Hong Kong This word is forbidden in School, office, public area . Diu is meaning fuck, is a common profanity in Cantonese. The word is used as a verb. Although it is considered to be a vulgar word in Cantonese.

In a manner similar to the English word fuck, diu is also used to express dismay, disgrace, disappointment, as an exciting expression and disapproval in Cantonese. For example, someone may shout "diu nei!" ("fuck you!" or "fuck off!") at somebody when she finds the other person annoying..

The word diu is generally considered to be offensive and is not supposed to speak in Public.

Gau is a common vulgar word in Cantonese that literally means man’s sexual organ., the Cantonese phrase mo lei tau gau (無厘頭尻) that means "makes no sense" was cut to mo lei tau to avoid the sound gau. A common usage is the phrase ngong gau, an adjective that may be translated as a "dumbnut"

In Cantonese lan is another vulgar word that means penis撚which has the same pronunciation but means "to tease" and "to toy with" instead. Before the 1960s the character 撚 was commonly used in non-vulgar context, such as 撚手小菜 (signature dish) and 撚化 (to play a practical joke on). But in recent decades the character 撚 is generally considered to be equivalent to the vulgar word. A common usage is the phrase lan yeung (撚樣) which maybe translated into English as "Dick head".

In Cantonese, Tsat is a vulgar word for an erect penis.

In Cantonese hai is a common vulgar word that literally means vagina. The English equivalent is "cunt A common usage is the phrase so hai (傻閪) that may be translated as "dick head".

Puk gai
The written form of puk kai commonly seen in Hong Kong.
Puk gai 仆街; literally means "falling into street", which is a common curse phrase in Cantonese that may be translated into English as "may you drop dead in the street". Originally it meant that when you die, your body will rot on the street because all your family and friends have left you and no one cares for you. It is sometimes used as a noun to refer to an annoying person that roughly means a "prick". The phrase can also be used in daily life under a variety of situations to express annoyance, disgrace or other emotions. Since the phrase does not involve any sexual organs or reference to sex, some argue that it should not be considered as profanity. Nevertheless, "PK" is often used as a euphemism for the phrase.

Ham gaa caan
Ham gaa caan 冚家鏟; is another common curse phrase in Cantonese that literally means "may your whole family be dead". Like puk gai, the phrase can both be used to mean "prick" or to express annoyance, It is very profanity.

Legal issues
In Hong Kong there are specific laws that forbid the usage of profanity in public. For instance, by Hong Kong law any person shall not "use obscene language... in Ocean Park", and "an offence is liable on conviction to a fine at level 1 and to imprisonment for 1 month." In the trains of MTR, it is prohibited to "use any threatening, abusive, obscene or offensive language....” However, despite the explicit prohibition of various laws, the exact definition of "obscene language" is not given in the ordinance.

Love is Trivial Comedy made up of important Tragedies

Love is the trivial comedy made of important tragedies.

This is my word to describe so call love…I have been graduated in Technical school, I was addicted to wireless and building of audio amplifier when I was studying.

I had no chance to meet any girl due to my inward character, I decided to leave this little city and explore the world by traveling through working on board a merchant vessel.

That three years work on ship brought me a lot of interesting experience. I had been to 60 cities in 20 countries. From Vancouver of the East, South of Brisbane, West to the St. Vincent Islands and North to Rostock of East Germany, (Iit was 1983 well before the Berlin Wall was demolished, so Rostock was in East Germany.)

I started writing with pen pal when I was on the ship and I had more than 14 pen pals at same time, amongst them I fell in love with one of the Thai lady. She was tall, sweet, young and able to speak very good English… I saw her in Bangkok in 1984 and decided to marry her immediately… we had a very. good time, and probably the best time in my life as I stayed in Thailand for two years with her no work… I thought that I understood woman but somehow that marriage last for 10 years only, I had the first baby. Now she is grown up and she is the best student in the University, I love her as I need to compensate for the time I did not stay with her and she is my Baby!

My second one is also a Thai; I met her since I separated with the first one. Well; she gave me one of the best beautiful daughter I can think of…

All in sudden another lady came in sight of me and I could not resist her charms, tall, sweet, lager round eye does seem to belong to Chinese. Speak softly with certain magic sexy voice. A straight nose that keeps telling me that she is so different with most of the woman in town…

Time will tell as all kind of goodness and sweet memories has gone. People will change or may be I had changed…. All in sudden there is no contact each other, no reply of her SMS.

Well, again there seems another one is appearing in my society…. She is taller than I, slim with pair of long legs and pretty body… a kind of nose and face profile that she is signified as a minority races of China… man,,,, I am 50… should this be my last romance…!?

As I always telling to the young kids…. Woman is like water… a kind of trouble water…. When it is cold it frozen it self and when there is heat, she evaporates and disappears.

We have to maintain her at certain temperature that feel her "Hot" but not to a level for evaporation! That is difficult! That is impossible, so if you find that you are in Love, please treasure this precious moment, though you and she are acting and as I believe there is few true love… Love is Once in a Blue Moon!

Man, if your are single, I am sure you are the most happiest man! And if you married once your shoulder will be loaded with 50Kg, 100Kg for Twice… how many Kilograms you can stand!?

The Culture of Tooth Pick in Hong Kong

Tooth pick is designed to be used in Rest room or at home, that is why there is no tooh pick in a French or Italian Restaurant.

There are tooth Pick on average table in an average restaurant. In Certain higher class restaurant, they serve the tooth pick on a plate after the meal. These Tooth pick has been individually sealed in paper envelop.

Some of them even have one side dipped with Menthol to give you a kind of mint refreshment.

In a Chinese Restaurant, after a eating the yummy dim sum, most of the people would start to work on the teeth with a tool pick. Some of them have addicted to be as a Culture.

They eat with one hand holding the chopsticks and the other hand holding a tooth pick.

I have seen the follow way of using tooth pick.

1. with Mouth Open, and use one hand to pick the food residues between teeth one by one. Use hand to pull out the bigger bit.

2. With mouth open, use the tooth pick to eject the food residues which was trapped between two wisdom tooth, if you are lucky, you can see this food debris can fly over a few feet away towards you!

3. Use one hand to pull open the lips and one hand to manipulate the tooth pick, looks like he is performing some dental operation. But there is no nurse or dental assistant.

4. Some of the people use the tooth pick as tool to pick out the food at the top of tooth pick and press it onto the table cloth in front of him. Some more profound people has a bit Hygienic gesture, he will put the food residues onto the table cloth under the table…

5. Some one can even chew and or eat the food debris at the tip of the tooth pick!

6. An absurb action is holding the tooth pick and to remove the food residues by the mouth self… This takes certain practice and I have seen people does it this way, but there is always a risk that the food residues will be ejected out to the out people at the table.

7. The older generation people used to go Dim Sum on Sunday many years ago, after leaving the restaurant, they hold the tooth pick by his lips for hours after leaving the restaurant, This is to tell his friends or neighbors he has been to the restaurant, nowadays this culture was carried out by some of the grass root people.

Next time , when you are eating in restaurant, try to observe how they use the tooth pick... it is funny but that is nasty!

Hong Kong People

There are a lot of things we should alert as we see a lot of people doing things differently as we were 25 years ago.
We value people who care about other and who pay respect to the elderly, who nods his head when seeing you in the office. Say “good Moring” as simple as that, do you find this kind of general courtesy has been losing its popularity?
Hong Kong, it is common to see people tend to queue in a Bank or MTR station for ticket verification or topping up with their Octopus cards. But …

These are my finding; the figure my personal feeling. But roughly it indicates the picture of it...
1. More than 90% of people will not follow the traffic light day time and probably 99% after midnight.

2. More than 50% of the people do jaywalking across the road.

3. Less than 50% of coming hiker initiatively says “Hello” or “Good morning” to you on the Hill.

4. More than 90% of the people presses the Lift Button whilst it has been pressed and being light up ( from The electrical circuit and electronic logic, once you press the button, it trigger a flip-flop logic circuit and it starts the software routine command the lift to come to your floor, indication is usually a pilot lamp being light up after the button is pressed Once. From an Electrical circuitry analysis, keep on pressing more than once does not speed up the Process of the lift travelling speed. If you can find a newer Lift software or model which does speed up with a proportion to the number of time of pressing the button, please let me know)

5. Parents seem do not stop his naughty kid fooling around in the carriage of MTR like tube dance, playing gymnastic on the rest bar

6. 70% of the people are either sleeping or resting with closed eye in the morning going to work Monday Morning in MTR. They have had a long night on Sunday... and they are general "Very Tired"!

7. 30% of the people s ether watching free newspaper, 20% of the people Playing PSP and or hand phone in MTR. Less than 5 percent people reading novels, Times, or Newsweek, I have not seen a single person carry or reading Reader’s Digest for years.That has been the most popular magazine 25 years ago. Now the Most Popular magazine is "TV News"!

8. They used all kind of low quality digitized song as their ring tones, that kind of digital noise can easily kill a mosquito or even rat in the MTR. This is so called Hong Kong "Noise".

9. 90% of the people do not offer seat to the older people or pregnant people. They Pretend not aware of it.

10. Less than 0.01% of Hong Kong people carry a handkerchief.

11. 90% of flapper, OL and lady below 70 years old has changed colour of their hair, Do not know what Black Hair beauty really looks like…

12. 90% of man calls his wife “mother” and “son “younger Brother” , woman calls his husband “ father” and daughter “ elder sister” or “younger sister”. Make me confused!

13. 99% of Hong Kong people have never say “ I love you” to their Mother? 99.9% of the man has kissed his mother in the past ten months.

14. 90% of man talks about dirty jokes about woman during lunch time and bluff their performance in bed, but many of them are having no sexeperience at all.

15. 80% of Hong Kong Male Salesman smokes, 60% of Hong Kong Saleswoman smokes

16. Less than 40% woman wear skirt to work.

17. Less than 10% of man actually cleans their shoe before leaving for work. ( I do not have data for the one has house keeper(s))

18. 99% of HK People not preferred to walk up stair in MTR station if there is an electric escalator nearby. Unless the escalator is jammed with people or under repairing.

19. Rushing for seat in the terminus is accepted as general practice of HK people.

20. The popular drinks on board CX is Orange Juice, Apple juice and if no choice than take the water. As most of the HK people is like me “a Snob”… Cheap water?…no..!

21. 25 years ago, number of single man is more than single woman by 5%, woman is the chooser, so 5% of man would have to go China looking for wife as China is a big market of young beautiful and easy going woman and they seemed like to marry a “rich” HK man.

Now, the number of single woman is more than that of man, reason is more educated woman tends to stay single for longer and pass over the age for marriage, more and more mainland China woman using fake marriage to come and stay in Hong Kong.

Nowadays, the single woman tends to go China to marry a man as the Chinese Man is in average "Richer" than Hong Kong man…

As the old Chinese says, “ The World is Round!”

22. 99.8% of the people travelling overseas for shopping, eating and nightlife. Less than 0.1% of the people had experience in visiting the museum, classical music concert, and Library! and likely 0.1% of the HK People is doing day dreaming overseas.

23. 99% of Hong Kong young man have not ever listened to any of the music Reproduction from Vinyl.

24. 80% of the Hong Kong young man do not ever seen an actual LP (vinyl)

26. 99.99% of HK man thinks Digital music is more attractive than Analogue music Reproduction.

27. In Hong Kong, Only One Man uses a mammoth Sony Walkman WM-D6C when he travels. Likely you know he is the only stubborn die hard analogue maniac! He Must not know there is something called MP3!

Another Sucessful Year for ASM... World No. 1 Semiconductor Equipment Supplier

As 2009 draws to a close, some people will argue that it's been a tough year since 15th Sep 2008 when the Lehman Brothers melt down. Most IC business experts agree that things have changed forever. However, as I have said in the past, change is neither intrinsically good nor bad in all cases. It is almost always an opportunity and that is certainly true for the future of our industry!

ASM technologies are perfectly aligned to address the emphasis on 'Green-Technologies' adopted by all governments world-wide. From IC, Discrete components, LED, CMOS Image sensor assembly equipment to photovoltaics inspection machines. ASM offers innovative and effective solutions to the most challenging demand of the Electronics and Semiconductor customers.

From the powerful support of the factories in China, Singapore and Hong Kong, we have successfully captured most of the IC players, gained their trust on the Equipment performance and reliability. Outperform other strong European, Amercian Japanese Competitors in term of Output per dollar and Stability. Therefore, ASM continue to maintain the World No.1 Position as a Semiconductor Equipment supplier since 2002.

The share price of ASM hit a historical high at HKD$80.00 yesterday and that may be an indication of the fund managers who have good speculation on ASM‘s future success, and as an acknowledgement of ASM‘s strong backlog and future business vision in 2010.

Being a Hong Kong Citizen, and we should be proud to see such successful Company that can be stand up with good track record in the past 34 years. Whereby neither Working diligently with the hardworking engineers and flexible problem solving tradition of Typical HK way, without any financial nor support of any kinds from the Government of Hong Kong.

We are looking forward to see this Company would have another organic growth in 2010.

LED Christmas Lighting in Tsuen Wan

Tsuen Wan MTR station goes LED Christmas Decorative lighting.

Every year Tsuen Wan MTR terminus has being well make up with lot of lights from end November till Chinese New Year. Since 2008, Tsuen Wan District office had decided to go LED to replace the incandescent lamps for such Christmas lights.

In Hong Kong, there are a lot of Christmas lighting in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui Commercial Centre. In recent studies 20 out of 24 major buildings in Hong Kong Island are still using incandescent lights, rough estimation there are minimum 100,000 light bulbs that could produce 1,100 tons of CO2 in beginning of December till 20 Feb 2010.
That amount of Energy is an equivalent of 360 families of 4 members' total electrical power consumption for one year.

I think Hong Kong is an advance City, but in the sense of environment protection, we are still in the Stone Age. Same as this Super Power Countries that gather in Denmark spending two weeks in meetings. After all, there is no reduction nor Committment on CO2 Reduction at all. Instead they created additional 200,000 Tons CO2 emission by flying Denmark. The cars are still running with low efficient engines, People are till using incandescent light bulbs, merely about trivial 0.1% of the general lighting is using Efficient LED.

Only LED manufacturer and LED manufacturing equipment company could possibly save the world by producing High Power LED that can beat the price of the Incandescent Lamp with same amount of lighting intensity output. I think we have to wait for another 3-5 Years!

Future, Success and Marriage

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future at all until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes 10X more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

A Snob and Slut is the ideal match for marriage, other than this Combination will likely be a failure or end up with Divorce...

Always Remember Those Who serve

In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table.

A waitress put a glass of water in front of him."How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.

"Fifty cents," replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins in it."Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.

By now more people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing impatient.

"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied.

The little boy again counted his coins."I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away.

The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left. When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels and five pennies..You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip.

Forwarded from an US friend John, this reminds me that we are working in the servicing Inductry. It is crucial to pay respect to anyone who serves us beofre we could be paied respect by others.

Dynasty Restaurant

I used to take The famous Char Siu at Dynasty, but two days ago, I was very surprise that the Roasted Ox tongue had such a great favour!

It had a very strong beef taste, the OX togur texture was very tender, absolutely full of juice, but we could not found the juice when we cut it into samller pieces. I wonder that the juice was actually the Chemical Effect of the taste buds and the Ox tongue!?
It is best goes with Red Wine.

The Steam grouper was fantasty! Just the right timing for steaming, very light taste of the best virgin Soya Sauce. Put the fish source on top of the Thai Steam Plain Rice...I rate it as the 2nd best steam fish after the Prince...
The Rennaisance Hotel will be demilished after three months, so as the Dyasty Restaurant, after tha, these great favour probably an experience of the 1,000 years of Cantonese Cooking Magic will soon becoming history.

Hong Kong Enters Seasonal Greetings!

Starting Mid November each year, major Shopping Centres, Commercial Buildings, banks and Hotels would be beautified themselves with lot of Lights and electronics animations for welcoming the Christmas and New Year. When the weather becomes colder as It was tenth of year before, the hawker would apprear in major hot spot area for selling the Chestnuts, by then we knew the Winter is coming. In this year, we can see the Chestnuts, but the cilmate is not cold at all. Can We officially saying that We have no more Winter in Hong Kong?!
In my wardrobe, I had no more sweater or thick jackets, as we hardly could feel that "Cold" as It was 30 years ago. In fact we have lost the Winter already due to the global Warming, or I should say "Global Warning"

The Luxury Brands in Hong Kong 2009

Luxury Brands in Hong Kong

Recently one of my Malaysian Friend told me that he had an unpleasant treatment by Flag Ship Shop of Louis Vuitton.
He asked the pretty sales lady how much is that bag displaying in the corner and the lady said , please wait for a while!” …actually she went away to welcome the incoming crowd of Chinese …

He said that he was being handled improperly and he was very much in dismay, I told him that next time Do not ask how much for the bag, but instead How many they have in Stock~?

This is an episode happening in the market of Hong Kong, Do not blame the sales as she might be really too busy, or she might be forget to come back to my friend, or she is really needed to entertain this Chinese who never ask price but holding bundles of Cash for the bag…

The Sales lady earns by commission, but, to certain extend they should not treat customer this way, as we should every customer the same kind of respect…and Courtesy!

In the 80-90’s The most powerful buyer is Japanese, and now we can see that is Chinese.

The World has changed, as the sales team had to learn how to Speak Japanese, but now if you do not know how to speak Mandarin, you might lose your customers.

So if you do not know how to pronounce it , we may have to learn it next time you go to the store, may be we will be gaining a bit more respect… when there is no Chinese Customer!

The Rainmaker and SAW VI

John Grisham's THE RAINMAKER is adapted to film in this suspenseful retelling by Francis Ford Coppola. In Memphis, struggling young attorney Rudy Baylor (Matt Damon) joins a shady law firm headed by Bruiser Stone (Mickey Rourke).

After the firm comes under investigation, Rudy and fellow employee Deck Schifflet (Danny DeVito) start their own practice. While trying to dig up clients, Rudy meets a young spousal abuse victim, Kelly Riker (Claire Danes), and convinces her to leave her husband (Andrew Shue). But Rudy's biggest case is defending a young man (Johnny Whitworth) dying of leukemia and his mother (Mary Kay Place) against the insurance company who wrongfully denied their claim.

During testimony Rudy uncovers proof that the insurance company has a practice of denying all claims. As his relationship with Kelly takes a dangerous turn and the trial uncovers more insurance fraud, it seems Rudy must decide between being a good man or being a good lawyer.

The Rainmaker is a 1997 movie. It Celebrates the zeal for justice espoused by a rookie Memphis lawyer. With the overbearing soundtrack, unimaginative cinematography, and indulgently tear-jerking ending ... this all adds up to a surprisingly derivative movie from Coppola.

The SAW VI, released 23 Oct 2009
Saw VI has received mixed reviews from film critics. Some praised it as being the best in the series while others dismissed the film for its "terrible acting", "laughable logic" and "political spin". It grossed $14.1 million its opening weekend, the lowest of the Saw films to date. Despite this, it was still a financial success, grossing over $53 million against its $11 million production budget. The film was the first to receive a Película X rating in Spain for violence and not for pornographic, restricting screenings to eight select theaters in that region. I have watched all SAW movies from 1-6, I rate the VI is best of all!

There are common theme of these two movie, as to make a pyschic prosecution to the unfair handling of medical claims of the insurance clients, Being an insurance practitioners, agents, manager for claim, and those who set-up the policy for unclaimed Insurance should stay watching these movie and open your eyes. Both Movies had "an undesirable and unpleasant ending" that those bad people will lose either money or their lives…

It does not matter whom you marry with, as they are all different after wake up!

Don’t be silly that there is love; they are only trades of family relation and stock for your hope tomorrow.

Is she the ultimate one!? Did you even watch another girl when you with her? If yes, you are not in love, but only some kind of man's need.

Did you ever think of having baby with her? If yes, Congratulations, you may be in love with her 90%, still 10% you want to make baby with other girl...

So before you marry, think three times, one after 1 year... after 3 years, review it again... For another cooling period of 10 months, if she is still waiting for you... You should consider her for the marriage!

I do not need to share with those Married guys, as it is too late!


HK's Foreign currency reserve is 7th Highest in the world

The HK Monetary Authority has an USD$256B as the foreign currency reserve , which is world's 7th Largest.

But side by side of this wonder data, there are over 900,000 people whose income is less than HKD $4,000 a month in Hong Kong! That is about USD$490.00! Is that an ironic contradiction?!

As what we had mentioned before, we have to find ways to lower the Gini Index of HK, thus to create harmony for the people of the whole HK ;- creating more jobs, fix the minimum wages to say HKD40.00 an hour, tax exemption, educational aids, subsidization on food and transportation, more like Tax exemption for companies who offer more jobs for the lower income people...etc

There must have a lot of ways to keep the Gini Index lower a bit. In order to build a better society, we have to contribute more.

Mr. Tsang, please help the people in poverty!

10 Energy Facts on China

The environmental impact of China is significant, with its large population, large reserves of coal, a fast-growing economy, and not being bound to international greenhouse gas emissions targets. Yet, when determining which countries are responsible for climate change, we see it as important to see the facts expressed on a per-capita and cumulative basis.

1. A small proportion of cumulative emissions
Over the past century, the 23 richest countries – representing 14 per cent of the current global population – have been responsible for 60 per cent of accumulated CO2 emissions. Mainland China – representing 20 per cent of the current global population – has been responsible for only 8 per cent.

2. Low per capita emissions
In 2004, the average person in the United States emitted 20.5 tons of CO2 – equivalent to emissions of 5 people in China. The average per-capita level for G-7 countries was 12 tonnes – the equivalent level for 3 people in China.

3. Low emissions in transport
The average person in USA takes 18 times as many airline flights as the average Chinese person and is 50 times more likely to own a car.

4. Export sector accounts for about one-third of China's CO2 emissions
This is equivalent to the combined emissions of Germany, France and the UK. Countries that outsource production and consume Chinese goods must assume some responsibility.

5. Disproportionately affected by climate change
The melting of glaciers alone could seriously affect the water supply of a quarter of a billion people in China.

6. Less capacity to respond to climate crisis
In China, 35 per cent of the population live on less than two dollars per day, and 10 per cent on less than one dollar per day.

7. A leader in renewable energy
China ranks second for investments in renewable energy (about US$12 billion), after Germany (US$14 billion). (2007)

8. A leader in low carbon transport
In 2008, China implemented a 36 miles per gallon fuel economy standard for passenger vehicles, almost 40 per cent higher than in USA.

9. Energy efficiency
China has reduced the energy intensity of GDP by over 60 per cent since 1980 and targets to reduce it by a further 20 per cent by 2010. (2005 figures)

10. High efficiency technology
Since 2005, the Chinese government has required high-efficiency, super-critical, coal-fired technology for new large power plants. In 2007, 553 smaller inefficient power plants with a total generating capacity of 14.38GW were shut down.

Note that from this, the energy awareness is one of the major government policy. China is a Leader in renewable energy, second after Germany.

China is promoting the EV car, the adoption of LED to replace incandescent lamp, and the expansion of Unclear electricity...

All the related business related to this would generating billion of revenue, such as the EV car Companies, LED factories and Energy Resources companies!

Eating Dog In Hong Kong ^_^

I talked to the manager of KFC shop at Discovery Park that these two Sign boards have a problem if they are placed together as shown!
The first time I saw it, I felt that it implies the meaning that "This KFC food do not have dog meat!"
In Hong Kong, only the old Hong Kongers ate dog in 50-60's, and the law of Hong Kong had banned the eating of dog meat in 80's.
8 years ago, one man who challenged this law by eating dog meat in a village, and his neighbourer called the police... The guy who had made an offend to the dog was in jail later on! This was one of known cases of imprisonment of a man who had eaten dog meat.
I know the Korean eats dog!! And it is common in the street! I was told so by my friends but I have not seen it as I have not been to Korea more than 10 years!
Dog is human good friend!! We can not eat them!
