Five things we're all wondering about

1 Historic stone pier found at Kai Tak ... apparently it was covered over in 1920 by reclamation despite Qing dynasty protesters camping out to save it

2 Walter Kwok Ping-sheung demoted and losing Sun Hung Kai chairman's post to mother ... she also grounded him to his room without dinner until he behaves

3 Legco rejects five more public holidays for blue-collar workers ... Good! Next, those lazy people will want weekends off, too

4 New deputy ministers face pressure to give up foreign passports ... to show commitment, political critics say they shouldn't cheer for overseas teams like Manchester United and Real Madrid, either

5 Japanese customs officer plants cannabis in Hong Kong passenger's luggage ... dude, some people have all the luck
