Hey! You Chinese locust. Stop jumping the queue

You've bought the whole world

Get off you bastard

Lockhart Road, please

Tell me where to get off.

Not the name of a long street

I'm not in the mood

Hong Kong is a playground for the rich

For them the sun's never set.

In the dark only the poor get upset

Don't I speak good English?

I did well in my GCE. A few F's and an E

Now end up driving taxi

"I don't wanna shut down"

"I wanna open up my heart"

"Gotta fight through this darkness"

"Before the silence tears us apart"

"Free me from these chains"

"Nailed through my feet to the ground"

"Gotta fight through this darkness"

"I don't want to shut down"

Shut down?

This city's gonna shut down soon

People get nostalgic

You've been moaning all the night

You need a priest to talk to?

Rent is to increase by double.

We'll have to shut down

This pub saw through the hand-over

Boss, ask the owner for some bargain

The owner said:

Shut up, pay up,

or close down. F***!

Down with property tycoons!

Give us democracy!

The road is sealed off. Can't get there

I'll drop you nearby. You can walk across

Not again. I hate demonstrations

What a waste of time

Is this your boyfriend? What a lucky guy

He speaks English and

he's a journalist. He's handsome

Press freedom is now the last bottom-line

He's got a US passport. Congratulations

If things turn sour,

there's always a warship for rescue

When will you divorce your American wife?

Oh please

I'm walking over

You're so quiet,

you look like a wise man.

Tell me how to earn a billion, will you?

A billion?

Life is just a long continuous chain of belches

God bless

I'm terribly sorry

I like your dress. It looks slutty

20 minutes late

Has Julie arrived?

She's worse than you

- Any drink, miss?

- Soda please

In school, she was always the queen

all guys falling at her feet

Does she think that's a carte blanche?

How can you still put up with this?

I know what she's like. Relax

Less moaning keeps a woman young

Going mad means earlier menopause

Sorry. I'm late

It's OK. We know you're so busy

Get a drink

I know your choice, dry martini

You still remember it

Oh yes. We're good friends

Get me a DM


DM means Dry Martini

Not Dumb Man


Your husband, Ben, is in elections.

You must have a full schedule.

We go separate ways

Ben's been howling around, leaving me alone

Today he asked me out, which came as a surprise

But ended up campaigning with him

Such hot weather!

I'm a bad time-keeper

It's OK

It will soon be over

After he wins,

he'll be a faithful husband.

Politicians are too scared to mess around

Make sure we're invited to your celebration party

It's been more than 20 years

Thanks to Facebook


You two look the same as before


You've been abroad for years

Now you talk like a classy Brit

I can't help it

All these years, I graduated from Cambridge

Mixing up with too many Brits, I forgot my Chinese

How lucky to have gone to Cambridge!

I did a local degree in Chinese.

I'm now a college tutor

You two are doing great

I left school and went straight to a hair salon

My grand-pa's been admitted to

an elderly home named Cambridge

I earn my living

by feeling ladies' hair

You seem to be doing well, man

ls education a must?

Be it Maggie Cheung, or Maggie Q,

I make all women look younger and cute

But you are the best of us

Now you work for Citibank

In charge of Far East,

you must have a good time

With a hot western girlfriend!

We've seen her pic on Facebook

Look. She looks hot

Finished. Just broken up

It happened this morning
