There’s…something wrong with the sky…

Mull of Kintyre
Oh mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here
Oh Mull of Kintyre
.
Fog of Hong Kong
Oh filth rolling in from mainland China
My desire is to get the fuck out of here while I’m still alive
Oh fuck you Hong Kong and mainland China
.

A dash of fog...a dash of smog? All the fish were floating in the pond a day later.

Here’s what this scene looks like on a rare clear day:

 

Usually in winter the sky is a contrastless white

This is a standard winter day:

This has been the default scene all winter

Awesome scenery

Oh dear...that's not rain

Smogtastic

A dry choking dust I mean dusk

Wikipedia: Air pollution in Hong Kong is considered a serious problem. Visibility is currently less than eight kilometres for 30% of the year. Cases of asthma and bronchial infections have soared in recent years due to reduced air quality.

“The life expectancy in Hong Kong is among the highest in the world … you can come to only one conclusion: we have the most environmentally friendly place for people, for executives, for Hong Kong people to live.”

– Donald (2+2=5) Tsang – Chief HK Government Official

Donny Tsang...sees people in three special groups - people, executives and Hong kong people.

Studies by local public health experts have found that roadside pollution levels (pollution experienced by people living near main roads…almost everywhere in HK) are responsible for 90,000 hospital admissions and 2,800 premature deaths every year.

The sun cuts an eerie yellow through a light smoggy haze

Magical

Yes, Hong Kong stinks

Wikipedia: In winter, strong and cold wind generates from the North to Hong Kong; in summer, the wind reverses direction and brings warm and humid air from the South. This climate would support a tropical rain forest……..if it wasn’t for the concrete.

So…winter is particularly bad as the wind blows this gray shit probably anywhere from Beijing (under the gray smog) on down:

According to climate experts, in Winter, smog blows down from China and helps to choke the fuck out of Hong Kong.

Unfortunately for Donald Tsang (and the 3 types of people in Hong Kong)…telling China that its pollution is a problem would be like an infant telling its mother that her milk tasted like shit and would she please get her skanky tit out of my face. What infant has the balls, gall or language capacity to say that? HK has no voice in China. So anyway, all Winter those of us living in Hong Kong have to eat the shit that wafts here.

Pollution continued…

In 1989, the Hong Kong government realised that Hong Kong was in danger of becoming a vast, densely populated city. (I thought it already was at that stage) Due to the growth of the economy and business sectors, the water, waste and air pollution cause an adverse effect on the balance of ecology in Hong Kong. No shit?

Where I come from haze like this could only mean one thing - a huge bushfire.

Factories, farms and restaurants in the New Territories dump large amounts of sewage and even untreated waste into the streams and the sea. It makes the New Territories’ streams ‘no better than open sewers’. This severe damage is irreversible in the forseeable future and creatures in the sea and surrounds are direct victims…

…not that there is an abundance of creatures…

There’s a few birds, some butterflies, some rats and some wild pigs in HK. That’s about it. Destruction of habitat of plant and animal species doesn’t leave much room for wildlife, plus with ever increasing hunting on some luxury species, which are becoming increasingly rare in South China, hunters are turn their heads to the last habitat in the area: Hong Kong.

(That HK is considered a habitat to these mainland Chinese hunters is a sad, sad reflection of just how milked certain areas in China must have become.)

Someone poke some fucking holes in the bucket

Hong Kong is a sad whore. Raped all its modern life, it’s just a beat up old hole that’s been fucked by the British, Japanese, Chinese, global wind patterns, Donald Tsang, greed, expatriates,  and it’s own geography.

When the wind blows from the north there’s just no definition in the sky. It’s a whiteout. There are no cloud forms. There are no clouds. It’s just putrid air. It’s a white blary haze of day in, day out...dirty smog.

    Funny thing is that I quit smoking shortly after I arrived in this smogarific paradise by the sea, and I wish I hadn’t… I think that the cigarette filters help siphon some of the shit that is going in my lungs every time I go outside and take a breath of fres… errr, breath of air.

    Environmental quality seems to have taken a back seat in this internationally renowned, insignificant point on a map… but hey, who needs an clean environment when you are in a cubicle for 12 hours a day?

    Hong Kong is the best place in the world. You are a motherfucking pig! Fuck you, and kill all of your family. Your wife and you fuck, and have a retarded kid without an asshole! you and your mother fuck, and have a daughter with a dick, a son with a womb. I am hereby representing all the Cantonese American people and HK citizens, sending you the serious reply.
    I wish you will find out that you are a fucking shithead and realize that your existance is a waste of everything, and hopefully you will go to dump your head into your shitter to stop your breathing. dont forget to killl your family before yourself!

  3. Stop sounding so wishy washy

  4. Oh I'm sorry, the animals probably don't want you too.... Better go for the "Hell" option...... says:

    Ignorant pig, annoying jerk,
    What possibly do you want more?
    A metropolis, with all kinds of work,
    I bet that your mother’s a whore.
    In case I’m mistaken, you’re a frik’in racist,
    A threat to the well-bred HK culture.
    A scoundrel an asshole, a pedo a rapist.
    I’d feed your remains to a vulture.
    If you’re still so consistent, about your incorrect beliefs,
    Hell opens its flaming gates for you,
    No one wants you here, so please do leave,
    go lock yourself up in a zoo.

  5. So enraged

    So savage
    So cold
    So rude
    So Hong Kong

    I recently visited Hong Kong and fell in love with the place and the people and was not looking forward to returning to cold Canada. But when we got to the airport this smog appeared like fog and I was worried that we would not be able to take off. Then I worried that there would be a rush of people for any plane taking off. I feel so sorry for the people I left behind. Please raise awareness and find solutions to this smog. Stop the coal plants and love one another so you don’t need all the material trash that the western world marketing tells you need to be happy.

    Cantonese Mafia misspelled “existence”.

    LOL to all the attempted insults to dudley’s mum. It is called HUMOUR, get some. Oh wait, you know what “humour” means right?

  9. It’s sad that people had to resort to insults as a comeback for posts like these instead of a logical argument regarding why this post is at fault. Shame.
