How you can give it up for quake victims

As ambitious and greedy as Hongkongers are, we can also be extremely generous. For the Sichuan earthquake, so many worthy events have been hastily planned to raise funds for victims, we're not sure we can publicise them all. But to help you lend a hand, here's a quick survey of some good causes to pause for.

What's On


The Hong Kong Dance Company is staging a dance drama - Little Panda in a Big Big World.

Fresh lease of life

Today I begin the first day of my first five-day working week in the civil service. It was a pleasant surprise when Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen announced the plan a few months ago. I immediately asked myself: What should I do with the extra time off?

NOW hear this Tim Noonan

Tim Noonan's rant on NOW broadband TV ('NOW hear this', Sunday Morning Post, July 18) is not only unfounded and biased, but even borderline unprofessional.

Has Tim been in Hong Kong long enough to witness the evolution of sports programming?

What I don't understand is what he is actually doing in Hong Kong.

Sunday at the teahouse

Sundays are very special. Not everyone is working, and people have the chance to sleep late. When I was young, it was a day for family gatherings at traditional teahouses. This 'ritual' was regarded as a communal obligation in the 1960s.

call for creativity

A cultural programme to encourage 'double unengaged' young people (youth who are unemployed and not going to school) to start their own business will kick off at the Victoria Park, Causeway Bay, this Sunday.

Yeah Corner Farm, organised by the YMCA, will be held at the park every Sunday until November.

Anyone who has visited Stanley on a Sunday will realise that it is a very pleasant place to spend the day. Happy faces are the order of the day as families enjoy open-air dining in Stanley Main Street, which is pedestrianised from 11am to 6pm.

Hotline an exercise in frustration

I refer to the letter from Bruce McLaughlin headlined 'Best of British may help PCCW' (Sunday Morning Post, October 14) and the reply from Jenny Fung of PCCW ('PCCW moves into damage control' October 21).

I agree with Mr McLaughlin that the level of service from PCCW is deplorable. What is particularly bad is the low standard of spoken English among its staff.

PCCW moves into damage control

The concerns expressed by Bruce McLaughlin about the services Pacific Century CyberWorks provides to his company in the letter headlined 'Best of British may help PCCW' (Sunday Morning Post, October 14) are taken very seriously, and we began addressing them as soon as his letter appeared.
