In the Facebook post, the woman claimed that her wedding banquet would be a buffet in a decent hotel. Therefore, she decided that every guest should be paying more than $500 in order to make up for the cost; she was not willing to pay extra for her guests. Her Facebook post was screencapped and uploaded on HKGolden, one of the most popular internet forums in Hong Kong. The bride-to-be is branded as a “Kong girl” by netizens, a colloquial term that describes overly materialistic girls in Hong Kong. Many say a banquet should be all about sharing happiness; the monetary cost should not be a ruling factor when it comes to inviting guests. Even though many of the criticisms are sound, the netizens have gone a bit too far by digging out and publicizing the bride-to-be’s personal information, including her personal photos, her job, and her phone numbers. They even found and shared the pictures of her and her ex-boyfriends. In an interview with Apple Daily, the girl's fiancé said that she had already learnt her lesson, and that the widespread media coverage is the most severe punishment. He claimed that the woman, agitated, has fainted a few times. In local wedding banquets, it is customary to give the couple money instead of gifts. $500 is considered to be acceptable for banquets in restaurants, while $800 is acceptable for hotel banquets.
