Hong Kong: You Shall Not Pass!

Hong Kong’s the safest city on the planet. You probably won’t get mugged, curb-stomped, shot in a drive-by, hung by the neck from an overpass by Mexican drug lords or publicly stoned for being raped. Bonus. What a town!

Hong Kong’s held together by a sensible adherence to safe practice…that’s why you’re urged 40 times a second to don’t keep your eyes only on the mobile phone when on the escalator…and that’s why sensibly placed padlocked gates dot public areas, defying even the nosiest of explorers from stumbling their way to certain death.

You shall not pass

You shall not pass

No way through

No way through here…or…

Common sense safety Hong Kong style

Common sense safety Hong Kong style. Impregnable!

    These people are evolving backwards. How the hell can anyone need a PA message to remind them to use a basic human movement ie look where your frigging going in crowded public places. .

    My favourite PA message: “Wash your hands after toilet”, albeit in Chinese only.

    It’s miserable story in whole China. Mainland Chinese people use jiantizi. And in Hong kong, the people who use English are small minority such as writer of this post. Hong kong people always have been saying they use original mandarin. But most of Hong kong people use katakana.
    Chinese-Vietnamese-Japanese-British-Filipino hybrid cultural area. That’s interesting.
    I’ll write down first sentence for some people in Hong kong.
    Itsu misoreiburu stori in horu chaina.

    Hong kong It’s same as a religional organization. A unorthodox religional organization.
    No people can have dialogue with them. Because they are a kind of psychopathies.

  6. End of Hk says:

    Yeah, It’s same as a unorthodox religion. The lying prophet is Lee ka shing. 7millions of believers have been wasting their life for majority and their prophet. LOL

    Did the blogger live in the West for a long period of time before coming to HK? Most HK people have become used to HK’s obsession with “safety”. They forgot their right to walk freely and enjoy a quiet atmosphere long time ago.

    What’s pedestrian lockdown?

  9. James says:

    Lock down: a state of isolation or restricted access instituted as a security measure. Look around you and you’ll understand the meaning.
