Patriot Zeman happy to be in Beijing As a new Chinese national, Allan Zeman - known as 'the father of Lan Kwai Fong' - has the honour of joining the 212-strong Hong Kong government delegation celebrating the 60th National Day in Beijing. A year after relinquishing his Canadian passport, he will attend the grand military parade in Tiananmen Square today. 'I'm Chinese now, I feel actually very good. It's a big day ... I love Beijing.' Despite not really knowing how to sing the national anthem, he said: 'As long as the heart is there, the voice is not important.' While the new patriot showed pride at being invited, a veteran patriot was unhappy about the reception he received. Retired National People's Congress deputy Ng Hong-mun arrived in Beijing earlier than other delegates. But at the hotel where the Hong Kong visitors stayed, he was left unattended for two hours. He complained that no one could even tell him the tour schedule. 'Ten years ago we were received by the central government, which was very attentive. This year, the SAR government's arrangements are just a mess.' Seeing several Macau government staff awaiting their delegates from early morning made Ng even grumpier. It won't rain on Tsang's big parade John Tsang Chun-wah will have to miss the big parade but the financial secretary - recovering in Queen Mary Hospital from heart surgery - will still be able to watch it, thanks to colleagues who plan to record it for him, just in case he misses any of it on television. Three days after his emergency surgery after a heart attack, Tsang yesterday started catching up on reports by his aides. The date for his release from the hospital's coronary care unit has yet to be confirmed, as doctors have said they need to keep an eye on him for five to seven days after the operation, which increased blood flow in partially blocked blood vessels. Tsang's office said he would take a break at home before returning to work. The importance of being fit Tsang's sudden heart attack may have alerted those with high political ambitions to the importance of keeping fit. But yesterday, Executive Council convenor Leung Chun-ying, a potential candidate for the next chief executive role, asked if he was healthy enough to hold 'a position with even higher pressure', said: 'I can get relief from stress easily. I keep to a balanced diet, exercise a lot and have plenty of sleep.' He said annual physical checks had shown he had no problems that would prevent him continuing to work. On the question of whether Tsang's illness would put the finance minister - seen as a possible competitor - out of the race for chief executive, Leung was not talking about the subject. 'Mr Tsang just went through an operation recently. We shouldn't talk about this right now,' he said. League pair go head to head The League of Social Democrats is known for its often hostile stance towards other parties but not for in-fighting. But in the election for the leadership of the Civil Human Rights Front - which organises the annual July 1 march - two league members vied for the post of convenor of the coalition of about 40 groups. In the end, Jo Lee Wai-yee beat Chung Chung-fai by just two votes. Chung might have won had his supporters been better organised. Despite sending representatives to the meeting where the election took place, a large number of groups that supported Lee could not vote because they had failed to renew their annual membership.
