Hong Kong stocks plunged overnight

With some companies plunging as much as 78% will these big companies go bust? Maybe someone who's familiar with stocks can shed some insights?

SKII really good?

I was introduced to this brand by a friend who says she swears by this brand, anyone tried it is it a really good brand? I saw the prices and they're relatively (or should I say much more) expensive than most other brands even more expensive than Lancôme and Esteee Lauder.

Re: my helper seems to carry bugs

I am quite sure they're bedbugs. You need to call in the professionals to rid them. Bugs spray won't help as bedbugs do have many nesting spots.

You can tip petrol attendants. I usually pass small change like a dollar coin.

Re: Ethical ways to hire a helper

I don't think so, but will probably be difficult to obtain her contact since some of them could come from more rural places and no access to FB. And they usually don't use their real names on FB so that would be difficult too.

Re: Ethical ways to hire a helper

It seems most maid agencies here charge a few months salary to the helper, plus 1k or so to the employer. I'm not ok with the helper paying anything and even less ok with an agency getting $2k or so for doing what exactly? Is it possible to hire directly without an agency? Or are there ethical, che...

Re: Removing page 2 on MS Word

Backspace should work. Go to the end of page 2 and then backspace. It will delete the invisible characters which are pushing you onto a new page.

Only if it's enforced. Cycles used to be banned as well, but you wouldn't have known it.
That's true...I saw an online vid of a man cycling on the grass patch... :P :P
