The government is planning a $1 billion relaunch party for Hong Kong. Rumour has it Bill Clinton and the Rolling Stones are on the guest list. Who would you invite?


I would invite Rolling Stones because I think inviting them can rock Hong Kong. Also, what should we do with Bill Clinton? Ask him to dance with Monica Lewinsky in front of us? So the Rolling Stones is the best choice if the tickets don't cost $12,000.


I feel Hong Kong's $1 billion relaunch party guest list should include Ricky Martin, for no doubt Ricky's spectacular career accomplishments have rewritten music industry standards across the world, and would really bring glamour to the event. It should also include David Copperfield who has been hailed by audiences and critics as the greatest illusionist of our time.


I would invite Ronaldo (Brazil's famous football player). It's rare for a pop sports star to come to Hong Kong. Ronaldo can also perform and give valuable tips to local football players. He can attract a big crowd as people in Hong Kong like football so much. On the other hand, Ronaldo can also help us to promote Hong Kong - the most hygienic city in the world.


I'd invite the superstars of hit movies, such as Keanu Reeves, Hugh Jackman and Jackie Chan to boost Hong Kong's image. This will certainly help the tourist industry recover. Finally, a spectacular party needs superb music. Pop and rock singers are a must for a fantastic bash that no one will ever forget!
