False advertising

Marks & Spencer really knows which side their bread is buttered, that much is clear, and I’ll prove it in a minute…but do they really need to persist with the blatantly false advertising?? Why not just come out and be truthful? Show a little respect for the market. Stop trying to pass yourself off as a decidedly English retail outlet when none of the clothes you sell fit the image you’re pushing. The Tsim Sha Tsui, iSquare image above, is highly deceptive and clearly indicative of the kind of false advertising I’m talking about. Here’s what it should look like:

20160717_184420ddddd

A more accurate portrayal of the type of apparel you’ll find in Hong Kong Marks & Spencer these days…totally fitting of the kinds of sausage fingered customers you’ll find ransacking shop racks like people who’ve never seen a striped shirt with collar before. Gimmee gimmee gimmee…must buy my weight in striped collared shirts before dusk!

Let’s check out what’s on offer from the London based retailer. As I’m sure you’ll agree, they sure do cater to the market…

20160717_184148

How do you like your stripes? We have them horizontal.

20160717_184143

By the way, do you like collars? Coz all our shirts have them.

20160717_184120

…all kinds of stripes…all kinds of collars…

20160717_184213

…more stripes with more collars…plus…JUST IN!!! NEW ARRIVAL!!!…designs that don’t mean anything and look like the kind of total shit your weird uncle wore to your grandmother’s funeral last year…

20160717_184116

…did somebody say ‘stripes’??

20160717_184217

…stripes and holy shit, are they dots??…with a stripe on the sleeves…and bold black collar…??? I’ll have 45 of them, please.

20160717_184127

…Did I hear someone say ‘stripes’?? Oh, yessss we have stripes…what particular kind of stripe were you looking for??

20160717_184205

It doesn’t matter…just as long as it has stripes…preferably horizontal…if it doesn’t have stripes make sure it’s got a collar…I want to fit in.

20160924_162346

Stripey goodness

20160924_162947

If the stripe fits wear it

20160924_162339

Cripes! More stripes!

20160924_162337

Got stripes?

20160924_162330

There’s some things money can’t buy…for everything else there’s stripes.

Anyway, fuck, it’s just rack after rack after rack of mainland shirt. That’s all you can buy there now. I’m not complaining though. Marks & Spencer is an overpriced fashion fop hangout at the best of times. I just think their slick advertising should represent the mainland infested Hong Kong customer base they’re dealing with more accurately, that’s all.

Mainland Martin sports the latest in stripes from Marks & Spencer. Lookin’ good Martin!

Leroy Lau brags about his new Marks & Spencer shirt, featuring, to the envy of his friends, some kind of checked combo…with collar. Leroy won’t shut up about his 4 suitcases full of striped, collared shirts.

IMG_9985

With a stripe/ collar combo, you’re in like Ling here. Go Ling, go.

Stripes, collars and 250 bags of whatever

Ok, I’m off to Marks & Spencer. See ya.

But of course, the cruel and ignorant owner was oblivious to all of that. She’s just taking her cat for a walk. What?? What’s wrong with that? This is Hong Kong style, you know?!

    Ha! This is a good one!

    I kid you not…

    I was went to the Tsuen Wan Marks & Spencer just the other day. Walked up to the second floor where the male clothing is. Boy, was I in for a surprise! The only stuff there I considered buying were some of the sleep wear items. Passed because a pair of sleeping trunks were nearly $250.

    FUCK I HATE HONG KONG!

    Dudley, just check out M&S on Urban Dictionary: “M&S sucks serious hobo dick there… clothing would be turned down by a man wearing only pants on a typical Alaskan day and… food well……let’s not go there.” M&S has been a symbol of suck hobo dick here in the UK for years. The only thing… errr… people who kept this retailer alive has been desperate housewives in their mid 40s and 50s. Perhaps Marc Bolland has already given the signal to his successor, Steve Rowe, that the saving grace to keep this name afloat might rely solely on their HK market, and the expansion of the sausage fingered customers. I have always loathed this suck shit retailer anyway. And as for their overpriced shitty food, I guess it’s still better than fishballs for the average HK expat.

  9. Big Mike says:

    It’s the only place in Hong Kong you can find large and tall sizes even if the styles tend to be on the bland side. If anyone else knows of anywhere in Hong Kong where you can buy half-decent off-the-rack large and tall I’m all ears.

    What do you hate the most about the streets of Hong Kong?

    A) Water dripping from Air Con
    B) Brolly poking at your eyes
    C) Second hand smoke
    D) Coughing at your head
    E) Loud talking
    F) Stupid smartphones users bumping into you as if you were not there
    G) Flyers slicing your arms
    H) Luggages running over your feet
    I) Stepping on feces

  12. Buck says:

    Definitely “F”. But it’s kinda fun knocking them like aside skittles too. Ironically, when I do so, they will gawk at me as if I have done something wrong.

    It feels so right. Encourage more Pokemon Go players, I say.

    I’ll add one more to your list: HKers walking along the footpath four or five abreast with their buddies, and not making any footpath space for people coming the other way. Again, well, I treat them like skittles. Striiiiike!

    OK, Enough: I like so suck white snake and luck hairy white balls.

    snippet from page 82 of “Intellectual Turbidity”:

    A prominent example of intellectual turbidity is the prevalent habit of announcing as a reason for a fact, the fact itself. ” Why do you not put salt into bread-cakes ? ” you ask of a Chinese cook. ” We do not put salt into bread-cakes,” is the explanation. ” How is it that with so much and such beautiful ice in your city none of it is stored up for winter ? ” ” No, we do not store up ice for winter in our city.” If the Latin poet who observed, ” Happy is he who is able to know the reasons of things,” had lived in China, he might have modified his dictum so as to read, ” Unhappy is the man who essays to find out the reasons of things.”

    Most interesting to consider these chapters missing from the book, which would be needed if someone was going to write about white people:
    – Alcoholism and drug use
    – Child abuse and paedophilia
    – Violence and hooliganism
    – Unhealthy bland cuisine
    – Lack of respect of children for their parents, disfunctional families
    – mistreatment of elderly
    – Bad work ethic
    – Xenophobia and racism
    – Poor lifestyle choices that lead to obesity and disease
    – Low importance of education

  33. Gweilo suck says:

    The key is chapter 12, contempt of foreigners. Yup, the locals look down on you. You can be sure they have a million more reasons to do so. The problem for you gweilo is that you’re the visitor here, the tiny minority, the insignificant shit on the shoe of the average Hong Konger. Banding together in this sad little site doesn’t change it. You are idiots and a long way from home.

  35. John F. Kennedy says:

    Chapter XIII, p 107, “Absence of Public Spirit”:

    A plantation negro who had heard the saying, ” Every man for himself, and God for us all,” failed to reproduce the precise shade of its thought in his own modified version, as follows, “Everyman for himself, and God for himself!” This new form of an old adage “contains in a nutshell the substance of the views of the average Chinese with regard to the powers that be. ” I, for my part, am obliged to look out for myself,” he seems to think, if indeed he bestows any thought whatever on the government, and “the government is old enough and strong enough to take care of itself without any help of mine.” The government, on the other hand, although patriarchal, is much more occupied in looking after the Patriarch, than in caring for the Patriarch’s family.

    Very nice Rurik. Can you find something on female infanticide in poor Chinese and the comparable rate with girls from white working class backgrounds?

    Never mind I’ll do it for you and its a better source that a tabloid rag in the UK

    http://www.du.edu/korbel/hrhw/researchdigest/china/InfanticideChina.pdf

    Heres a copy and paste from another source

    Infanticide in China

    Chinese girls are twice as likely to die in their first year of life as boys.[i]

    The death rate of girls in their first year of life is up to three times higher in rural areas than in urban areas.[ii]

    The risk of death is three times higher for second girls than first girls.[iii]

    Second girls are more than twice as likely to die in their first week after birth as boys.[iv]

    95% of abandoned children in rural areas live outside of state-controlled orphanages.[v]

    Fewer than half of China’s orphans receive government subsidies.[vi]

    Parents who remarry have been known to abandon their child so they can have a new child with their new spouse.[vii]

    In 1995, the Chinese government reported that there were 40,000 orphanages.[viii]

    In 2009, Americans adopted more orphans from China than in any other country, totaling 3001 adoptions.[ix]

    In 2011, the most recent year for which data is available, Americans adopted 2587 children from China.[x]

    A total of 24,635 Chinese mainland children were adopted in 2012. Eighty-seven percent were adopted by parents from the mainland, while the remaining 3,311 children were adopted by overseas parents.[xi]

    Around 74 percent of Chinese mainland children adopted by overseas parents in 2012 were disabled or older children.[xii]

    China and Chinese people, a hopeless case?

    I think there are a few things u need to understand about MILF in Wah Fu:

    (1) One in three in Hong Kong suffer from some sort of mental illness in Hong Kong.

    http://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/article/1054859/one-three-suffer-mental-illness-survey-finds

    (2) Women are 40% more likely than men to suffer mental illnesses.

    https://www.theguardian.com/society/2013/may/22/women-men-mental-illness-study

    (3) Those living in public housing estate in Hong Kong have far higher chances of having mental illnesses than the general population.

    (4) A MILF Chinese woman who invites a gweilo (or self-professed gweilo) to have sex with her at her own home is ipso facto insane. A woman who her own husband and other local men do not want to near is just another indication.

    Mental illness can be contagious, you know..

    I think they are all just so dreadfully unhappy. Unhappy is what sums up HK. Unhappy with their work hours, unhappy with their housing, unhappy with their health system, unhappy with their education system. That unhappiness is obvious for all to see. Just look at Mr and Mrs Wong on the street each day. Mr and Mrs Unhappy.

    I heard one of the CE candidates on TV today (I don’t know which of the tossers it was) saying that top of his agenda is housing, education, healthcare, and care for the elderly.
    Mmmm HELLO that was the same platform that Tung Chee Wah had back at the handover. Twenty years ago. It’s SHAMEFUL. As a poster said earlier, HK brags about having one the world’s highest fiscal reserves. Yes indeed, of course! It is because the Government either doesn’t spend enough money, or money in the wrong direction, on housing, education, healthcare, and care for the elderly.

    “seriously, why is everyone so bad to one another in Hong Kong? why? it doesn’t make sense…”

    Do you know what Dystopian mean? Try reading George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”, Dystopias are characterized by dehumanization, environmental disaster or other characteristics associated with a cataclysmic decline in society. People in Hong Kong are so bad to one another because they have been dehumanized, and remain so no matter what. They don’t give a rat’s ass if the whole society collapses because they think that their money (and only money) will buy their way individually and ahead or everyone else. Hong Kong has passed the edge of the abyss and is now in free fall, swirling all the way into hell. The mockery is that they proudly display their dehumanization behind the smoke screen of a “culture”. Culture which they “borrowed” from the West, and yet don’t fully understand, or let alone respect. They also hate their mainland Chinese counterparts, and yet do not accept that they are just the same vicious kind. They don’t even know who they are (nor Chinese or Westerns, neither Henderson or Huong) and yet use their “Chinese” identity to justify their own dejection as people.

    Hong Kong is indeed a textbook dystopia:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dystopia

    1. Politics

    Someone much worst than CY Leung will be appointed by Xi Jinping to be Chief Executive in a few months.

    2. Economics

    No. 1 in Crony Capitalism in the world and the most ruthless dog-eat-dog cut-throat laissez faire economic system ever known to man. Laissez faire is just French for “no one gives a fuck”.

    3. Family

    Lowest birthrate in the world. The real estate developers are now selling coffin-sized “home” for the family. In the West, even cats and dogs have better living conditions.

    4. Religion

    The only religion here is MONEY.

    5. Identity

    Xi Jinping will suppress any independence movement in Hong Kong and Taiwan. He is now preparing for a military confrontation with Donald Trump.

    The next Chief Executive will fire real bullets into a crowd.

    6. Technology

    Hong Kong has the highest broadband penetration rate and smartphone usage in the world. People here actually thinks dehumanization is a good thing.

    Good luck Buck and safe travels. Well done for reaming this dirt box of money and getting out.

    The police don’t police
    The estate managers don’t manage (oh, wait, they put up meaningless signs)
    The estate security guards don’t secure (oh, wait, they put up meaningless signs and secure Christmas decorations)
    The government doesn’t govern

    The only things that are real: noise pollution, air pollution, corruption and inconsiderate clods. In Discovery Bay especially, I’ve noticed that some of the Westerners, who are so quick to loathe this cesspool, have morphed into the same pigs they detest.

    Yes, I take full responsibility and blame for agreeing to come here 5+ years ago. There is an end in sight (I don’t know when) but I thank my lucky stars I don’t have to stay here permanently.

    And, yes, I have met some extremely decent people here both Asian and Western, but overall this place is a living and breathing nightmare; an assault on the senses.

    No money for schools and teachers or hospitals and doctors but apparently unlimited funds for vanity projects like the Macau-Zhuhai Bridge that no one will use, high speed rail to nowhere, the unnecessary third runway, etc.

    Buses and MTR trains packed far beyond any reasonable degree, and the govt does nothing to improve even this simple quality of life issue – in fact it is busy importing mainlanders to further reduce quality of life. And the locals tolerate all of it, so it will never change.

    Another HK blogger wrote a book called ‘We Deserve Better’. Anyone who has spent any amount of time here knows the response to that is ‘No You Don’t’.

    To the above commenter, China doesn’t give a shit about how hong kongers feel. It’s the knowledge that things won’t get done even if they complain which gives rise to their apathy.

  82. Buck says:

    Cat’s eye summed it up nicely. If I may, let me add “noise pollution” to the cesspool you describe.

    So where is GS? Where’s the full force? Has he been KO’ed by the hubby of the MILF in WF?

  83. Buck says:

    I mean, “light pollution”.

  84. What a place says:

    if I may add to Cat’s Eye’s list:

    customer service do not serve customers;
    teachers do not teach
    parents do not parent
    lovers do not love

  85. Buck says:

    huh? Lovers DO love. Havent you been around on Valentine’s day, when the girls carry their conspicuous, obligatory, bunch of 40 red roses?

    HK: the capital of Cheeseness.

  86. Buck says:

    I’d really like to know what women think about adult men who walk around the crowded streets of HK with their head down glued to a Pokemon or Candycrush screen. GS, what do you think?

  87. ‘GS’ has been banned because every time he posts, 30 morons chime in with an avalanche of inane repetitive posts about his sexual habits. It’s boring as fuck.

  88. Anon says:

    Thank god for that, the creep was an attention junkie. Must admit I took a break from visiting this blog for over a month due to it. It’s nice to have it back to the way it was before.

    Found the below when googling “differences between Chinese and Japanese women”

    14.
    The first words of Japanese women on their wedding night is: “If I do not look after/service you well tonight, please be forgiving.”
    The first words of Chinese women on their wedding night is: “Hurry and see how much money was received today.”

    Excellent and interesting. Lucky Jap men: undeserving paranoid weaklings whose women think they are tough and deserve servicing in bed.

    Before the tolls come: I know what I am talking about.
