Five things we're all wondering about

1 Island ferry fares to rise by up to 23 per cent ... which made the 30 cent Peak Tram anniversary ride even more attractive.

2 Democrats demand political appointees reveal their salaries ... are they Legco members or potential mothers-in-law?

3 Centaline boss to rehire trio convicted of fraud ... obviously, having a criminal record doesn't hurt when you work in property.

4 Workers' damage to Mid-Levels banyan tree could affect its growth ... it seems that height restrictions only apply to trees and not buildings.

5 An ecological phenomenon strikes Southern District ... frustrated lifeguards were heard loudly complaining about those 'sands of beaches!'
