It’s crazy…the internet has really gone nuts lately because of a certain things going on. Most of you outside of Hong Kong and China have no idea what’s going on. But I can tell you it’s just the usual 这几天网上的情况真疯狂了。你们香港/中国外面的人可能不知道发生什么事。。。但是我可以跟你们说也是那个问题：
A band i have never met, never talked to, never had a conversation with, don’t know the members of…have written a song about me. the lyrics are literally FUCK RIZ and then because they are very clever they are trying to rhyme the words HARDCORE in Cantonese and because they’re SO smart, the best they can do is rhyme two cantonese words 黑哥 which sounds like “hek gho” kinda like “hardcore” but literally means “black” “brother”. 又是一般我从来没见过，从来没有跟他们聊过，从来没有跟他们有什么沟通过，的人选择了做一首歌讲我。他们的歌词是（我不是骗你 – 他们的歌词真的是这样）：”FUCK RIZ”然后这个挺聪明挺厉害的乐队想广东话押韵这个英文字“hardcore”。他们作词非常厉害 – 你知道他们怎么样押韵这个字？他们写了
fuck that 黑哥”
我一看他们这样写我当然发火了 – 有人攻击我不是新的东西呢，很多年有人攻击我了。但是这次写了颜色”黑”然后“格”所以我第一反应就是他们歧视我。
从我第一次明白硬核文化到现在我会继续信硬核的一个很重要的信念 – 就是无论如何，有什么东西发生最重要就是用自己的energy出去研究下什么是真理。。。任何情况的事情，都需要我们自己出去用我们自己的眼自己的耳朵去看和听真话。我到现在都是一样 – 一开始想歌词我会花很多时间自己出去研究一首歌的题目。我试过看很多不同的报纸（看不同记者的角度），看电视，出去自己访问经过这件事的人听他们的心声。这样写歌词之后才可以影响他人开始想一想一个题目。我的意思当然不是想影响他人有我一样的看法 – 就是给他们听一个看法然后希望他们会自己去研究然后建立他们自己的看法。
I have nothing to say about this situation. I have no idea what to say about people who don’t think it’s important to contact and communicate with a person and find out for THEMSELVES what is the truth. 所以我现在不知道还可以说什么。关于这样的人 – 这样的无聊的人。。。我不知道我还跟他们说什么。他们人的性格已经跟垃圾一模一样没用。。。我还可以他们说我道理吗？
To me, the key to hardcore is always searching for the truth. Before I write any songs I always love reading and researching the topic that I’m writing about so I can write intelligent lyrics that will allow people to think about something. Writing lyrics that my 6 year olds in my classroom can also write is probably not going to have much of an impact on the listener.
Any so-called “hardcore” band or supporter of “hardcore” that simply listens to what other people say, listen to rumors, and base their whole argument on what other people say WITHOUT actually trying to find out the truth for themselves – is just an idiot.
这般攻击我的人我从来没有收到他们的电话，或者什么沟通的方法来联络我。哪，他们怎么样可以写这样的歌词或者有这样的批评？哪他们有什么经历可以來證實他们的論點？就是他人说什么，他们就信？是吗？你们很厉害！ 我也听过在香港有个livehouse的人也挺不喜欢我。这个livehouse我从来没去过，他们的老板和工作人员我不知道，也不认识 。我就听过这个livehouse有挺好的设备，灯光也好，他们也有个房给巡演中的乐队可以睡觉！我听到觉得这样的地方是十分值得支持！！！挺开心有个地方会这样服务香港和港外的乐队。然后听到那边的人都不喜欢我，我觉得真奇怪。我不知道是不是真的 – 如果是真的那我当然非常失望因为我也不认识那般人。我没有跟他们说过一句话，哪他们为什么会有那么极端的反感呢？因为他们身边的人说我的坏话所以他们决定了就是真话？不会吧 -在这个时代 没有人那么天真吗？我还以为建立一个那么有希望的livehouse的人肯定是非常理性的。我希望这个不是真的。
To me, this band is just as useless as those few people in Hong Kong who like to get on the radio and attack me. As those people who like to destroy King Ly Chee…because all these people every SINGLE one of them are people that I have NEVER talked to or communicated with. I have heard that livehouse in Hong Kong called Hidden Agenda also hates me. I have no idea if this is true or not. I think they are a great place because they are trying to do something great for Hong Kong by opening a livehouse and even having a place for bands to stay when they are on tour. That’s incredible and I am so proud that HK had a place like this. But if they also hate me? I’m really surprised because I don’t even know who they are. I have no idea who the owners are and who is involved with Hidden Agenda. How can you hate me when I have never talked to you?
I just don’t understand how all of this possible just from playing music. That’s all we’re doing is playing music. Why do people have to cause so much trouble based on something so simple as music? 我就不明白 – 我就是想玩音乐，为什么有搞到那么浮渣呢？我们就是喜欢听音乐和玩音乐 – 真的是那么简单。为什么要搞到像中学一样那么无聊？
Weird…it has been a weird few days.
I want to thank the only person that I know that has come out publicly to defend me…I know people have said nice things on my facebook, but the people on my facebook are all people who know and like me so of course posting on my facebook is like preaching to the already supportive. this person is the first person in the many many years people have been attacking me to post something online for the whole world to see. You are a brave brave person my friend. I am so sorry for all the trouble your courage is going to cause you…我现在就是想挺谢谢我以为兄弟。就是那么多年只有他一个人有出来写一个文章支持我。我知道在我facebook有很多朋友来支持我，但是当然是我的facebook所以大部分的人是支持我的人。我这位兄弟不是在我facebook说的，他去了外面的网站说出来他怎么样支持和尊重我。我真想谢谢这个很有勇气的朋友。我也想说道歉兄弟因为现在为了你可能会受到少人的攻击。我真对不起兄弟。。。但是我真想谢谢你的支持，尊重和爱 – 最重要是爱。
Good luck to this band and to all the other people whose lives are so small and pathetic that they will spend their time and energy to think about me. 反正，这个广州乐队和其他那么废人我真想跟你们说 – 加油！你们这个态度的乐队和人真需要加油。
累死了。。。我昨天晚上差不多十点钟才回来了家。这样 – 我昨天上班上了差不多十四个小时。。。太累了。。。
昨天下班之后去了辅导一个挺可爱的一年级的小朋友。这个小朋友有些问题所以他家人有找我上来他们家教多一点东西为了他可以在学校里找到成功感。他真努力学 – 虽然他有问题，他不想放弃。他很喜欢我所以真听我说然后会试试我所的东西。。。
然后辅导了之后再去了学校 – 差不多晚上七点钟到了学校。然后上了老师们堂挺一位很出名的教育学者教我们新的教书方法。。。他教我们教到差不多九点钟。。。然后离开那区回家有点远。。。所以差不多十点钟才回来了家。。。
如果大家想找个很有意义的工作 – 我真想推介做老师。。。如果你心里真想为下一代的世界可以更美丽，更开放，更好，那开始很少的小朋友学这样的性格真有意思。。。
HARDCORE – PUNK – METAL KIDS in Bangkok – see you soon!!! Our brothers in Thailand’s kick fucking ass hardcore band BORN FROM PAIN – can’t wait to see you guys again!!!
Oh my gosh…I’ve been back 2 days at work and I already feel like I haven’t had a holiday in many weeks. Our school has SO much pressure getting things done…if you work in a school you will understand what I mean. It’s just too much – sometimes they just need to let us teach, instead of pulling us out for this meeting, or that meeting, or having more and more professional development opportunities. I look forward to these things, but when it’s every other week and I haven’t actually had a solid enough time to try and APPLY any of the things that I’ve learned – really isn’t helpful.
Anyway…the kids have been great…they’re a little out of it but they’re getting back into the swing of things.
The only thing I’m greatly looking forward to in terms of music is the new Sick of it All album which drops April!!! Can’t fucking WAIT to hear this thing!!! I can’t wait until they upload a new MP3 from this record…
Bed time is calling…I’ll be at work until 9pm tomorrow!!! FUCK!!!
Very excited to be back to school today and see my kids! Woohoo!!! They’re going to have so much to talk about! Can’t wait to see them in a few hours…我很高兴见到我的小朋友。他们放假了一个礼拜，肯定有很多事情他们会想告诉我。哈哈哈。。。常是这样 – 一再见到我他们马上会有几万多东西想告诉我
Here’s a great band featuring members of Comeback Kid and Misery Signals…it’s called Lowtalker and is an awesome 90′s-type emo/punk rock…can’t wait to hear more songs!!! 我今天想介绍一个挺厉害的emo-punk乐队叫Lowtalker – 这个乐队有Comeback Kid和Misery Signals的成员来做。。。
Happy Monday everyone…星期一快乐！哈哈哈。。。
We are FINALLY going back to the wonderful land of 1,000 smiles!!! Yes!!! We are going back to Bangkok, Thailand!!! 我们终于回去曼谷演出！我们上次在曼谷演出已经过了三年了！damn!!! 我们将会在四月三号演出！当然挺兴奋。。。曼谷的人对所有摇滚风格的音乐挺投入所以那边演出的气氛真厉害。。。。We’re playing that show on April 3rd and are VERY VERY excited to be going over there!!! 为了这场演出我们会跟曼谷本地衣服公司合作 – 他们叫AMP…为了这合作机会我们有跟一位菲律宾的设计者有帮我们设计了新t-shirt!!! 真有意思 – 我们有个泰国的衣服公司帮我们出新t-shirt，但是这个t-shirt就是一位菲律宾人设计的 我们真的是一个亚洲的乐队！！！For that show we will be working together with an amazing clothing company in Bangkok called AMP 看AMP的东西请点这个网站： www.myspace.com/amp_clothing who will be printing our shirts for us…for these shirts we’re working with an amazing designer from the Philippines who runs the AMAZING clothing company called Killapinas 看Killapinas的衣服请点这个网站： www.myspace.com/killapinas
We truly are an Asian band with lots of love and support from people everywhere…don’t think we take any of this for granted because we don’t. We have worked hard but we are also lucky because there are tons of people (outside of Hong Kong) who know how hard we work and appreciate it and support it!!! 我真的很幸运有那么多亚洲人支持我们这个乐队。当然是因为我们也是以个非常努力的乐队。那么多亚洲人（香港外面）欣赏我们所有做的东西 – 为了我们的乐队，为了硬核我们付出的东西他们有留意然后有支持我们和尊重我们。。。真开心！！！真感激他人留意我们。。。谢谢你们大家！！！
THANK YOU GUYS!!!
Can’t wait to be playing back in Thailand man!!! SOOOOOOOOO excited!!! 太兴奋再去泰国演出。。。是一个很大的音乐节 – 我们现在其他的细节我还不知道。一收到马上会放在这儿。
We also announced that we have been invited by Poly Muso for this year’s AP! They’ve been inviting us every year but for the past few years we’ve been busy playing outside of Hong Kong. This time FINALLY we’ll be in Hong Kong and we can FINALLY play!!! 我们还可以宣布我们确定了玩今年的Poly U AP! 他们年年都会找我们可是这今年我们常是去了外国演出。。。但是今年我们是在香港！！！ 其实 – 我自己不是在香港。。。
Actually, I’m not in Hong Kong that week.
Look at my schedule:
April 1四月一号 – my girlfriend and I are going to take a 23 hour train ride from Hong Kong to Beijing我跟我女朋友将会从香港上火车去北京 – 一共是二十三个小时.
April 2 四月二号- we arrive in Beijing and I get to stay for one night and even watch a show maybe我们四月二号会到北京。。。当日会过一个晚上
April 3 四月三号- I need to get on a plane and fly straight to Bangkok to play the show 第二天我会很早再上飞机直接飞去曼谷为了那场演出。。。
April 4四月四号 – I fly back to Beijing to be with my beautiful girlfriend四月四号会上飞机回去北京。。。
April 10四月十号 – I fly from Beijing straight to Hong Kong to play Poly MUSO AP 当天我会上飞机回来香港为了Poly U AP的演出!
I love it…it will be expensive for me to play that Bangkok show because I will be in Beijing at the time. But King Ly Chee is my life…I will do anything for this band. 我真喜欢这样的情况。。。我还是一位年轻人所以我不想浪费我的时间。。。我有什么能力做好自己的乐队，我不会浪费。当然从北京特意去曼谷为了一场演出会点贵，但是我为了我自己乐队什么都行做。我永远不怕幸苦。
Good times!!! We can’t WAIT to show you the new shirt designs!!! It’s all about our friend Doyle of the Filipino company Killapinas who is helping us out and getting these designs done!!! 很期待给大家看我们新t-shirt!!! 非常想谢谢我们兄弟菲律宾Killapinas的朋友: Doyle!!!
Okay…it’s Saturday night time to get some sleep…
Damn – we had a GREAT time playing the show two days ago. We were surprised that the place wasn’t packed! hahahaha…we thought that all of HK’s nu-metal loving kids would’ve come out to watch Glassjaw for sure! But there were more people from outside Hong Kong that came to watch the show, then people from Hong Kong. hahahaha…even the singer of Glassjaw noticed this and he said to me “Damn – there are more people here from the Philippines then from Hong Kong! If we knew no one from HK was going to come, we should’ve just played in the Philippines”. I had no real response to that but to say – this is what we have in Hong Kong. This is what we’ve been working with for over 10 years now. 大家好！前天的演出玩的很开心！但是真的说我们以为会有多很多人来看Glassjaw。我自己以为起码所有以前挺喜欢nu-metal的人肯定会来看。最好笑的事就是我可以说差不多来看的观众一半都不是香港人！哈哈哈 – 很多是从菲律宾特意飞过来的或者星加坡或者印尼，还有很多广州/深圳下来的。Glassjaw的主唱也留意这个事情然后跟我说“如果我们早知道很少本地的人会出来看，我们不会来这里直接去菲律宾演出了”。我也不知道怎么样回答他这一句。。。我只想跟他说这个就是香港的现实 – 所有外国的乐队去什么其他亚洲的地方肯定会有个比较厉害的反应 – 肯定比香港厉害很多。反正 – 这就是香港的reality。。。我们已经习惯了这里的情况。。。
Anyway…we had a great time!!! We’ve very happy that you enjoyed Kent’s new awesome breakdancing hahahaha..We played 10 songs and we could’ve easily have played 5 or 6 songs more!!! It was great…反正我们玩的挺开心！！！玩了十首歌之后还不想下台！哈哈哈哈。。。我们很容易可以再玩多五六首歌！ 我们昨天晚上还有介绍Kent的新跳舞！哈哈哈哈。。。希望大家很喜欢他八十年代的街头方式的跳舞！ 他下次肯定更厉害! hehehehehehe…
I haven’t update this page again…sorry Matt…hehehehe…
This is what I’ve been listening to this past week – big thanks to a bunch of friends for introducing some good music…and some music I’ve just been listening to non-stop 好的 – 我这几天就是常听这些音乐:
1. Madball – everything and everything and everything and everything…best hardcore song on the planet for me right now? Hardcore Pride off of their Legacy album…他们每张唱片。。。太有共鸣啊。。。如果你问我 – 我现在最喜欢的硬核歌是哪一个？我肯定可以回答你 “madball的歌叫: Hardcore Pride”! 挺简单，挺短，挺快…
2. Reign Supreme – such a great hardcore band…挺好的比较新硬核乐队。。。
3. 谢天笑 – I remember he performed after us at the music festival in 厦门 and he was SOOOOO good…why is their such incredible mainstream rock in China but complete garbage mainstream rock in Hong Kong? 我还记得我们在厦门的音乐节玩完之后就到这位人。他一开始唱我马上喜欢了他的音乐！！！很有自己的风格。。。我真不明白为什么内地里的比较地上流行的摇滚歌会比我们香港所有地上的流行摇滚好那么多？
4. Mark Ronson – awesome hip-hop that Ho introduced to me…我们的豪有介绍这位hip-hop给我听！！！非常好听！！！这位人有跟很多著名hip-hop的人合作了一张非常好听的唱片叫”Here Comes the Fuzz”
5. Kings of Convenience – never heard this band until an old friend Pang introduced them to me yesterday. I always assumed they were some Brit-pop/rock band but he was like “No – they sound like Simon & Garfunkel” I checked it out right away and totally fell in love…awesome awesome…我朋友Pang昨天有介绍这个乐队给我听。我以为他们是跟英国的方式一样所以我一早真没有什么兴趣听。。。但是我完全错了。Pang一说他们很像Simon & Garfunkel我马上去听！！！哈哈哈哈。。。挺好听！！！他们下个月将会在香港演出！
OK – we’ve got a really nice friend in the Philippines that’s designing us a new shirt right now!! We’re also talking to a special company about something special that I’m SUPER excited about hehehehe…you’ll find out soon. It’s something I wear all the time – and it’s going to be awesome to have a KLC one!!! 好的我们有一位菲律宾的朋友现在开始了设计我们新t-shirt！应该是挺好看！！！我们还有开始plan一个对我来说很有趣的新荔枝王东西呵呵呵呵。。。就是我们每天戴的东西 终于会有个荔枝王自己的呵呵呵。。。一会儿跟你们说了。。。呵呵呵。。。
Woohoo!!! We’re playing a show in 2 days…that’s all you need to know!!! Get to the show and GO FUCKING CRAZY!!! Come celebrate the Year of the Tiger with us!!! 太兴奋了！！！后天终于有演出！！！我们很想疯狂 – 跟你们一起欢迎这个虎年一起来疯狂！！！太期待演出。。。
These past few days I’ve been a fucking song writing machine…I’ve written 3 songs…one song is called “Kick Ah Ho’s Ass” hahahahaha…because he thought one of my 3 songs wasn’t very good – so I immediately wrote a super fast, short and straight ahead song because I know that’s what he’s totally into right now. I think that’s why we all get along very well with the type of music we listen to and are into…all of us are into straight ahead stuff with minimal twiddly shit…just straight rock – fast parts, rock parts, etc…that’s all we need!!! We just need to have the right soundtrack pushing us to face life full force!!! 这几天我写了很多新歌。。。我真疯了。。。其中一首歌就是叫 “我打豪”哈哈哈哈。。。不是真的打他 – 就是开玩笑 （可是 – 没有中文名字 – 英文名字才是很好笑）因为我其中一首歌他觉得没有什么特别。哈哈哈哈 – 所以我马上写了一首挺直接的歌。。。但是他这个意见是完全对的 – 所以他让记得我们最好的歌 全部最直接的。。。反正我写完了之后只想到一个名字“Kick Ah Ho’s Ass”哈哈哈哈。。。我觉得我们五个人的共鸣就是我们现在喜欢听的音乐 – 我们全部很喜欢很简单，很直接的音乐。。。对我们来说这样的音乐才做到我们生活的声带。。。有这样的那么力量的音乐才能给我力量面对我们的生活。
I have no idea where this brings our song number now though…it’s ridiculous how many we have…the longer we take to finish this recording the more fucking songs we’ll have…那我们现在一共有多少歌我不敢说。。。肯定是超过二十首新歌。。。疯了。。。
Yesterday I went to watch Merchants of Bollywood with my girlfriend…my girlfriend is Chinese and I’m Pakistani. It is easy for me to learn about her culture because I live in China surrounded by Chinese culture and language and traditions. But it is hard for her to learn about my culture and traditions…There are not many Pakistanis in Hong Kong, and I have ZERO Pakistani friends in Hong Kong which really sucks but that’s the nature of Hong Kong. So any time we have a chance to show her some of my culture and I’m ready to do it. This “Merchants of Bollywood” is a stage performance that is truly amazing. It talks about the whole movie industry in India etc…and with the music, the language and dance it was great for me to watch it and remember that part of my life. 我昨天跟我女朋友去了看一个剧场。。。剧场就是关于印度文化的东西。我女朋友是中国人，我是巴基斯坦人。在香港我有很多机会了解她的文化，语言和传统因为香港就是一个挺中国的城市。我全环境就是中国的文化。反而她很难找到机会了解我的文化。。。我真的一个巴基斯坦朋友都没有。我所有朋友就是中国人或者菲律宾人。。。所以她真没有机会听我的语言，看我的文化，看我们的传统。。。她可以上网看或者看电视有什么关于我们的节目，但是他不能他自己的眼看。
反正 – 我一听到这个剧场来香港我马上买了两张票带她去看。真好看！！！气氛，音乐，衣服，故事，全部让我很舒服因为我小的时候常会看印度电影。。。这样的音乐集是我儿童的声带。。。哈哈哈哈。。。这个剧场是叫”merchants of bollywood”下面有个网站你们可以上看影片和音乐。。。
Check it out here for photos and video点这里看看这个剧场的影片和听音乐: http://www.merchantsofbollywood.com.au/aus/
It was great…
Happy new year to all our friends and family all over the world!!! Good luck in the year of the tiger!!! 新年快乐！恭喜发财！身体健康！心想事成！龙马精神！大家在新年加油！！
Welcome to the year of the Tiger!!! My kids in school were very excited about the year of the tiger and the last day of school they all enjoyed watching special Chinese New Year assembly etc…it was great…the children are mainly non-Chinese so it’s great that our school does so much to allow the students to understand Chinese culture, because we live in Hong Kong which is most definitely a Chinese city. 大家欢迎来虎年！！！上个礼拜五我的小朋友有享受一个特别的中国新年的表演。他们看得时候挺开心 – 有功夫看， 有变面人看（他们挺喜欢看这个！！！之后他们聊了很久 “这个人怎么可以便面。。。”哈哈哈挺可爱！），有很多其他东西。。。我们的学校大部分的人不是中国人 – 很多就是外国来的小朋友，所以我觉得我们这间学校真的很好因为他们明白这个学校是在香港里面 – 香港就是一个中国的城市，所以我们的小朋友需要明白这里的文化所以会给他们很多机会享受和接受中国文化，语言，等等。。。
So our friend Matt (you know – the world’s coolest 15 year old hahaha) said that he orders me to get back to writing my daily blogs. Since I’m scared of him – I will have to oblige. 上个礼拜我有帮shepherds the weak弹吉他 – 弹完之后我们的好朋友matt (就是那位十五岁的Matt）要求我开始再每天写我这个blog. 他有投诉我在这个礼拜不是每天写。。。
好的Matt – 我今天开始会再每天写。。。hahahaha…sorry dude!
The end of last week I saw one of the stupidest thing in the newspaper. There’s a new group in Hong Kong called “I Smoke” who are against the tax increase on cigarettes that the Gov’t was thinking about. To be against this tax increase is okay – but what they said in the newspaper made me unbelievably angry!!! They said that second hand smoke doesn’t kill people! They said that people consider them “terrorists” and when they see them smoke they try to stay clear of them. OF COURSE WE DO!!! You’re smoking you fucking idiot!!! Second hand smoke is WORSE then first hand smoke! So when you’re enjoying your selfish addiction, you’re actually harming other people around you! Some of those people you’re harming are women, childrne, the elderly, and the pregnant!!! You’re such a selfish prick! And this group “I Smoke” has a facebook page trying to get more smokers to join! It’s the most ridiculous page!!! There are people posting on there about how PROUD they are that they’re a smoker! 上个礼拜底在报纸我看了一个真笨蛋的东西。香港现在有个新组织叫“I Smoke我吸烟”！！！真笨蛋！他们有反对政府的新计划 – 计划就是在加税。。。政府的想法就是如果烟的价格是贵那很多年轻人会买不起所以他们可能会放弃吸烟。这班组织投诉加税我觉得是没问题。。。就是他们反对的时候说的东西我真的不能接受！！！他们有说二手烟不会害健康！！！他们还说他们觉得现在的人当他们是“恐怖分子”因为吸烟的时候很多市民不想走在他们旁边。 你们真是on9 (这个是广东话的一句 – 意思应该说跟傻逼一样）!!! 我们不想走你们旁边因为我不想吸二手烟！！！香港的空气已经是很差，你想我还吸你的烟吗！！！你真真是一班很自私的人！！！你们吸烟的时候你们不会里你旁边的市民可能是小朋友，老人家，等等。。。你就想吸烟所以你会就做！！！这个组织的人开了一个网站 – 在这个网站说他们自傲说他们是吸烟者！！！你们为了这个那么差的行动很自傲？！怎么可能！！
I officially think this world has gone bananas. Now smokers think second hand smoke doesn’t harm people. Now smokers are proud to smoke and all that future cancer they are in danger of getting, and all that cancer they send out in the world.
They also say they have the “right” to smoke. Of course they do. But I also have the right to clean air! THAT IS MY RIGHT! HK’s air is already terrible…why do I have to also breathe in your smoke! Ridiculous…他们还受他们有權吸烟。当然，他们真的有这样的權利。但是我也有權吸干净的气！！！香港的空气已经不太干净，我为什么还需要吸你的烟。。。真不明白。
People are so selfish…especially it seems in this city – the city that is KING of being inconsiderate. 在这个城市很多人真没有礼貌。。。真不顾别人。。。你想看证明？你每天上班/下班的时候试一试上公共巴士或地铁。。。你会明白我为什么那么生气。我见过男人推女人，推小朋友，推老人家 （上个礼拜我见到一位人推了一个老人家因为他想先上车拿位子坐。我叫这个男人停一停！我跟他说“你后面是一位老人家！！”但是他不理我，就上了车。自私！！！）
Tan Zuoren was jailed yesterday…he was jailed for 5 years. The newspaper says that the Chinese government jailed him for “subversion”. I think this label “Subversion” is such bullshit…especially if you see what he has done. He has been SUPER vocal about the construction of schools in Sichuan province. He went there and spoke about how corruption by the local government led to the POOR construction of schools, many of which collapsed on TOP of children during the recent earthquake!!!
He wasn’t speaking out against the government or trying to topple China – he was speaking as a human being. A human being who that thought it was NOT right that the local government people took money away from the construction of a building that was going to house children.
Any time this happens in China I always get so sad for my friends who live there…they will NEVER be able to speak their mind. Literally, they are never allowed to say out loud what they’re feeling inside their hearts. The Chinese government is SO scared of it’s people…and to me, people who are this scared, are scared because they have a huge feeling of guilt in their hearts because they know they’ve done many things that are WRONG.
One day it will change – we all hope. Until then the Chinese government can only do what they know how to do – is to jail anyone who thinks differently then the Chinese government…jail anyone who “challenges” the Chinese government – even if these challengers are morally and ethically correct.
It’s another sad day for progress in China…
Two days ago a woman threw her daughter over the railing inside a mall in Hong Kong and then she jumped as well. The girl survived because there was a net that caught her. But the mom fell right through the net and died upon impact.
The questions this incident raises are MANY…why do we have so many of these types of things happen? When adults are unhappy or deeply depressed – why is it that the innocent lives of the children are involved? I don’t understand this at all…I don’t understand what kind of unhappiness or pressure in a mom or dad’s life would drive them to want to take the life of their children. And to choose to throw your child out a window, down a mall so that they are flying through the air for a few seconds wondering what the hell just happened…
Hong kong is a tiny little city with TOO much pressure placed on all of us…it’s a little pressure cooker about to explode at all times…
OUr lame government will never do anything about it because they are incapable of doing anything or acting out. Hong Kong people always have to rely on themselves to deal with their issues…where is the social service? Well they’re here but understaffed and underpaid…the government will spend billions on building on the GZ-HK rail line, but won’t add more money to the budget for social services so that they can become bigger, better staffed and more available.
That poor girl is going to grow up with all sorts of mental issues because her mom threw her over a railing. Mom died but she survived…can you imagine the guilt this poor little girl is going to have when she grows up?
