THE DARK SIDE OF HONG KONG NIGHT LIFE 1

There are some good points about today’s Hong Kong- I have to think what these might be- and many bad ones, one of the worst being pretentiousness. The other bad one? Being gullible.

Chief Executive CY Leung and his Ship Of Fools are in a class of their own, but probably symptomatic of the dumbness pandemic sweeping Hong Kong like a worse case of SARS- and called SCARS- is living in la la world stupidity based on being vacuous know-it-alls. And empty vessels make the loudest noises.

From the days when many in Hong Kong longed for a $1.60 box lunch from Ong Lok Yuen opposite the old Queen’s Theatre Building comprising a baked pork chop and fried rice or some simple char siu fan, we have jumped aboard this long train running foodie court of endless restaurants with little or no USPs and overnight connoisseurs taken in by price- the more expensive the restaurant, the better the food- to that other extreme of the funkier the better.

It’s like the pretensions about music: If no one’s heard of an act, they’re cool. Once everyone discovers them, they lose that hipster factor.

In a nutshell, Hong Kong has become too damn cool for its own good led by many- not all – the chuppies who have come back “home” to roost because America has tanked, Edward Snowden has shown up Barack “Er, No, I Can’t” Obama and his administration to be hypocrites and terrified to play hard ball with ol’ Vladimir Putin. A black man in the White House has not worked.

Fuck me, listening to these chuppie homies and their LOUD obnoxious, abrasive conversations in bars and restaurants is enough for me to “do a Howard Beale”.

Would these people- and they’re mostly losers in “finance” but with no real jobs- behave like this in the States?

Of course not, the Big Black Man would beat the crap outta them and send them hurtling to Chinatown.

Hell, Bruce Li wouldn’t be able to take their affectations. It would be a disgrace to Chinese culture.

So, what we have are these newbies to Hong Kong who seem to have been cloned from the same Chinese Barbie and Ken Factory on one side, the nouveau riche yet tasteless Mainland Chinese on the other while the Hong Kong Belonger is relegated into being a bit player with cameos by recently-arrived foreigners from bankrupt countries being given the keys to the city because of the color of their skin- white- and “dudes” and “dudettes” from the sub-continent spoilt rotten by daddy’s money, also in “finance” but still seated along the dark side of the moon with the other East Asians.

Money still cannot buying “belonging” in Hong Kong by the Birdie Num Nums. But conmen are given money to open restaurants and a Mainland Chinese mother can allow her kid to piss on public transport. That’s ok.

Now, put all these people together, stir, fry and serve and what you have is some very tasteless chow fan- but hugely expensive, pretentious and void of any soul.

That soul kitchen has left the building with Elvis and that’s not alright, mama.

Ong Lok Yuen had soul. A bowl of char siu fan had soul. All these new taste-a-like restaurants have no soul. Arseholes, most definitely. They’re like James Brown with a Basil Fawlty Sex Machine.

It’s also soulless in the rows and rows of Clubs with their celebrity DJs and celebrity mixologists and herds of lemmings and sheep so easily led by some weird Pied Piper of Hamlyn who has found a gig in Hong Kong.

Singapore, despite the facelifts and bells and whistles, might still be the same robotic Swingabore it’s always been, but Hong Kong has never ever been the city it has become- corrupt, greedy, vapid, vacuous, mentally polluted, void of any EQ levels, tragic, a living lie, stupid and getting dumb and dumber every day. I might be missing a few other negatives.

Why not leave? Not when one has given so much to one city just so some plastic fantastic morons can tear it down.

Someone has to be around to restore Hong Kong Pride and drive away the gypsies, tramps and thieves before they get too comfortable with their faked out little lives.

Where’s Batman when we need him?

6 THINGS THAT BUG ME ABOUT HK

DISCOVERY BAY

it’s where middle class white folk live and drive about in golf carts so they can say they don’t live in Hong Kong. Always has been a great place for secret swingers though and women who want some Mandingo on the side with the mashed potatoes.

PICTURES AND STORIES ABOUT BONNIE GOKSON

The Queen Bee of Pretentiousness. At least our Bonnie still has some cash unlike others from her prime. Oh, but all those fawning stories about her cakes and buns and stupidly posed pictures. Around the Eighties, our Bonnie had great tasty buns.

THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

There is none. It’s just a money laundering business for two local fat cats whom the toothless ICAC will never come close to arresting.

DA DOMENICO

For very rich Chinese who think they’re having authentic Italian cuisine because it costs a lot, there is no menu and has an Italian chef who ah speaka to them in a very louda voice, si. So?

DUDES

Mainly from the sub-continent who move in packs and do a lot of staring at women but with no action taking place- unless paid for action like expensive female takeaways from Goodfellas.

OPULENCE

Because it rhymes with flatulence- and Hong Kong is suffocating with shee-shee opulence which actually IS flatulence.
