1 Poor may get internet aid ... a minimum wage may be too excessive, but nobody should be denied the right to idly waste time twittering and messaging

2 Builder finds density loophole to build flats in Tsim Sha Tsui ... the developers have to find some way to get around rules now that they can't just offer government officials a lucrative job when they retire

3 Year of the Tiger arrives ... although we're still writing Year of the Ox on our letters by habit

4 More boys now born in Hong Kong ... this could become a major social problem as the next generation of businessmen won't be able to find mistresses

5 Approval for village home at dump site ... fortunately the loophole was closed so at least now it won't be a 67-storey tower'
