Government should give the over-65 jobs

There are a lot of elderly people who would like to learn something useful. As Hong Kong is an international city, I think elderly people can learn to use the computer and enhance their knowledge.

Yes it should. It seems that in the view of our government, development cannot co-exist with history and culture.

It can't wait to eliminate the dai pai dong, the street food stalls founded in 1940s, claiming they are unhygienic and cramped and that they disrupt traffic.

Change of heart needed on dai pai dong

It seems odd that while tourism authorities do not support preservation of the city's remaining dai pai dong as an attraction to visitors - one reason being that they do not present a wholesome image of the city - the new Hong Kong Disneyland has chosen to serve dai pai dong dishes at one of its food outlets.

Q Are landlords getting too greedy?

I would love to share my experience of greedy landlords. I, too, have thought about opening a bar in Cochrane Street, SoHo.

I paid the one-month deposit, signed the provisional tenancy agreement and waited for the formal tenancy agreement with the key. But I was rejected because the landlord found someone to pay a higher rent.
