TV is a bane

New technology can be both good and bad. For example, when there was no cable TV, we rarely fought over which channel to watch. We chatted to each other happily and enjoyed having meals together. There was family harmony.

There's more to life than just exams

Because they want to get good jobs, Hong Kong students are focused on exam results.

In fact, many students only care about what will be in the exams, and have no interest in anything else.
