1 Deal on settlement of cross-border trade in yuan signed ... don't we already have it, using the Lowu train to carry large suitcases full of notes?

2 Live-in domestic helpers excluded from minimum wage ... officials claim it's hard to calculate their work hours when some of them are on duty around the clock.

3 Disneyland expansion deal agreed ... it is a small world after all. Alas, too small for Hong Kong.

4 Smoking ban comes into effect ... the only smoke blowing around now is from idling buses and trucks.

5 It is suggested the Central ferry pier's Chinglish signs may hurt city's image ... also damaging are prostitutes who still make the grammatical abomination of saying, 'me love you long time'.'
