    Reflections: naked ambition

    Posted Aug 16th 2014, 11:31pm by Wee Kek Koon

    ... Wee Kek Koon Naked ambition The luo guan, or “naked official”, is a new species in the world of venality in the mainland. These corrupt officials are “naked” not due to their sexual shenanigans, if any, but because their wives and children have emigrated, leaving them home alone. With family members holding foreign nationalities, it’s easier for luo guan to transfer ...

    Reflections: exciting attention

    Posted Jun 29th 2014, 12:48am by Wee Kek Koon

    ... Wee Kek Koon Exciting attention The downward trend in mainland tourist arrivals is probably being welcomed by many in Hong Kong, but retailers are yearning for the return of the tuhao. Now listed in the Oxford English Dictionary, “tuhao” refers to the typically gauche parvenu from the mainland who think nothing of spending a fortune in a single afternoon. Poet Chen Zi’ang ...

    Reflections: Clone wars

    ... Wee Kek Koon Clone wars There are actors in the mainland who, bearing an uncanny resemblance to political leaders such as Mao Zedong or Zhou Enlai, work as lookalikes. And recently, a picture of a pie-seller who was the spitting image of President Xi Jinping has been doing the rounds on the internet. I have yet to meet my doppelganger and I hope that chilling encounter never ...

    Reflections: razing the dead
