Re: Do you miss flying?

I suppose HK residents feel similar. At least they can do stuff like this: https://amp.scmp.com/sport/outdoor/hiking/article/3112253/hiker-tackles-every-hong-kong-trail-during-covid-19-despite Sorry, scmp has blocked the article, but hopefully you get the idea - there's wonderful hiking in HK.

In our opinion, there isn't any merit based system. It is more of a race/ ethnicity based system.

Re: Job losses among foreigners

Max, it's just like the chinese language in general, it's a tonal language. The tone used usually will determine whether it's a slur or affection. :-k Joke right? Tones in Chinese determine the meaning. "Sei" in Cantonese can mean die or four or other things depending on the tone. Anyway, "gweilo" ...

Re: Why did this forum die?
