Watch alarm ruined opera

A WEEK last Thursday night I attended the opera La Traviata, at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre's Grand Theatre.

While I was enjoying the beautiful music of the opera the watch alarm of a person sitting behind me sounded announcing that it was 8pm and ruining the mood created by the music, at least for me.

During the intermission I thought he would turn it off, but I was later appalled when I heard it sound again.

Some people just don't know how to behave in public.

Technology controls us unless we control it.
