Five things we're all wondering about

1 Concern over spate of ambulance breakdowns ... your chance of arriving at a hospital alive by ambulance is now about the same as taking a minibus.

2 Chambers of commerce say visa curbs hurt business ... and things will be even worse if they say no to Amex and MasterCard too.

3 Chicken buyout on despite shortfall of vendors ... maybe some of them are selling online because lots of websites are offering live fresh chicks.

4 Nestle drivers the latest to go on strike ... like all local food and beverage servers, they want an extra HK$2 for delivering cold drinks.

5 Record heat and smog days ... all we need now are some police thugs and we'll be just as ready as Beijing for the Olympics.
