News from Singtao news:
Police in Man Kam To, Shenzhen found this “Fake ambulance” with 6 reports filed in the pass month, these vans were deteriorated as a normal ambulance in mainland China, targeted those HKers with needs. (Do you believe medical system in a place where even eggs are fake?)
A trip from travel from Shenzhen to Man Kam To borders (Hong Kong), charges were up to HK$2,800 1 trip (What a rip-off! I suggest a Taxi fee with same distance would be < HK$280).
They suggest HKers do not use service from these “Fake ambulance” as there are no medical equipment on board.

Oh man, I don’t know………
WorldCup Fever – Fake LV/Burberry soccer ball
她感到很不開心，陪伴了她不少日子的橡皮刷不見了，是那天太疲倦把它遺留在什麼地方嗎? 是借了給什麼人沒有歸還嗎? 是有身邊其他好心人感得她應該找一塊新的橡皮刷所以把舊的丟掉了嗎? 照道理說橡皮刷應該不會自己跑掉了啊。。。
有些時候她也會想起那一塊橡皮刷，也會在與好朋友的言談中談起它，記憶中的它是多麼的清晰但模糊，明明記得刷的時候真的刷的很乾淨，那紙皮套上的花樣現在已經不再發行了，但那橡皮刷是怎麼模樣? 是從什麼時候不見了呢 ?
I personally love to code at late night, and when I felt hungry or would like a cup of lemon tea I would normally visit a noodle shop near by…
Not againist anyone or any group, I have face this for a while….
3:00 am, a noodle shop with 5 customers…with 5 waitress at an age about 40~50s….
Client: Can you please give me a cup of iced lemon tea with more ice?
Server: What? (Still “chit chat”-ing with other waitress, answering with a tone of me stopping her to continue her connection between other servers.)
Client: Can I please have a cup of iced lemon tea with more ice? (Ping repeat.)
Server: …… (Continue chit chat with other servers with no reply)
Client: Excuse me.. I would like to make an order……(Ping No.3)
Server: I have heard you!!! (Loudly..angrily…)
10 minutes later…..
Server bring up an iced coffee, with almost no ice in it…..
Client: Excuse me…I ordered an iced lemon tea, with more ice….this is a cup of coffee…is that orders from other table?
Server: Oh…..Isn’t is the same? Still a drink…..(Finally stop chit chat with other servers, as critical error has occurs….)
This doesn’t just happens once, but almost EVERYTIME I came this noodle shop (The only one open over night around..)
Honestly, I know these waiter/waitress get very low pay, a little bit more than a McJob.
It popup to my mind, is it because of low salaery, so low working performance were given due what was paid?
I always challenge, instead of employing X workers with X at Low Pay, why not X-n workers with X-n of a fair pay?
Not pointing fingers, I found these 40+ ladies who work in this kind of small resturant tends to chit chat all the time, making jokes loudly, making their work place like local community centre (I would suggest next is a table of Mahjong game), no wonder many employers bare in mind to keep away from them….
(Sorry for those 40+ ladies who work hard and does not match the statment above…)
What do you think?
Now a days mobile phone are so common in HK, we have almost 8 million mobile number registed with a population of 7.5 million…
I think it raises a problem, no matter everywhere, anytime you hear ringtones from differnet mobile phones, start from the old fasion default ringtone to pop songs or even dirty words like: “Axxhole, answer your phone!”..
I have personally seen people not answering calls just because they want to show off their ringtone……
I think it gets into a kind of noise pollutions in public places, like in the public transport, library, etc…..
Heard from friends who works as a mobile hacker, in country like Japan, mobile manufacturer are require to limit ringtone volume by law to prevent this kind of “pollution”, many customer of them are user from these country requesting them to increase the ringtone volume by hacking the hardware or firmware……
I understand sometimes it is such a bad thing we miss a call because ringtone volume are too small, but I think people just over-do it and it become a problem..
What do you think about it?

I have personally seen many famous brand counterfeits around in HK, like LV toilet paper holder, Burberry pattern T-shirt with Ralph Lauren Polo logos on it….
I think these manufacturer did spend some time and innovation on their products (altho it is illegal)
But a LV/Burberry soccer ball? really out of my imagination…
It always popup to my mind, if they have such an innovation and skills of making a counterfeits product which they claims it looks so real or even better, why don’t they spend the affort on something new and better?
Of coz, with a country next to us that even Eggs or Soybean source can be fake, what else can I ask for?
Just my 2 cents….
