All adverts in Chinese

ON November 1, I visited McDonald's in Pacific Place.


I was dismayed to find that all its advertisements for meals were in Cantonese.


Being a public holiday, there were lots of non-Asian visitors: families, maids, etc, not to mention the visiting US servicemen.


I left the establishment thinking that McDonald's was doing itself a disservice with all these Chinese adverts.


These past few days I have taken a good look at many of its adverts and notice that they are all in Cantonese - even the large ones in the MTR.


I know my homeland will eventually be returned to China and probably everything will be in Chinese, but by my reckoning, we've still got more than 18 months before this occurs.


Would McDonald's care to comment? DORIS ANN Kowloon
