Seventeen Days


The problem with 3 Doors Down is their distinct lack of direction. Seventeen Days stumbles along from grumble to moan, recounting various tales of when life hits a rough patch, with a profession of love thrown in here and there.

Q What should Hong Kong do to fight global warming?

The government is not taking the environmental issue as seriously as it should.

It should be forced to announce all the environmental fines it collects and who paid them, so we know who the culprits are, and what environmental projects the collected fines go to.

Loud and clear

Do you remember a time when you could hear birds sing; what someone was saying to you on the phone; your partner talking from a metre away? No? Then I'm guessing you have young children.

Public flat doors will be upgraded over fire fears

The Housing Department will spend about $390 million replacing 150,000 doors of public rental flats that are not sufficiently fire-proof.

But 230,000 households will not benefit from the 18-month project as they are considered to be close enough to the main fire exits in their buildings.

Substantial emotional ties

I REFER to your 'Campaign Notebook', which appeared in the South China Morning Post on August 16.

You quoted an unnamed 'source' supposedly close to me on why I chose Hong Kong Island Central as my direct election constituency.

ON February 19 my husband and I were at the UA-Times Square cinema for the 9.35 pm showing of The Pelican Brief, an excellent movie which requires a lot of concentration. However, this becomes difficult when doors are constantly closing.

Passengers are so selfish

I OFTEN travel by KCR from Hunghom terminus station.

Sometimes, I have to put up with other passengers banging doors behind them as they pass from one coach to another in an effort to find a spare seat.
