On residents in the New Territories bemoaning the transformation of their communities into major shopping districts for surging numbers of mainland tourists: James Chou - Well they have to go somewhere. It would be a good idea to make a megamall in Lo Wu or Lok Ma Chau if they want to encourage mainland tourists to shop near the border. Jessie Tong - I think people will object to all proposals. When the chief executive suggested a special area near the border for mainland shoppers, that was criticised too. That might have resolved the problem. Stephan Ortmann - I live in the New Territories. Not only are there more shopping malls, they are also excessively crowded. I prefer not to go there at all. Robert Tsinoy Santiago - Greedy businessmen with government officials' blessings. On further claims of abuse against foreign domestic helpers: Catherine Yap - Remember we are all human. Whatever your status in life don't treat others in a way that you would not want to be treated. Lynne Gregorio - Some bad employers really need to learn. They are giving a bad name to Hong Kong through exploiting and abusing domestic workers There are also good Chinese employers. Magilyn C. Cervantes - Not all employers are bad...some are really good, treating their helpers like their own family. But bad employers are giving Hong Kong a bad name, and it's time to stop this abuse and it's about time to give these bad employers a lesson. Amui Kawanua - Hope more helpers can stand up and be brave, they shouldn't be abused. As long as they are honest, and give a report to the police straightaway they will be protected by the law. Sheng Amoako - Break the silence...stop the violence!
