When I was a young boy...

Let's talk about the good old days, eh?

But first, let's talk a little bit about me first, coz that's fucking important:

As a kitten that was born during the colonial era, I was fortunate enough to survived the 1997 handover and now as a fully grown up living in the political custerfucked High tech village of Hong Kong, I must say I've seen plenty of changes during my time. For the next few week, I'll attempt to bring to you, my dearest Libertines, what it was like before this colony of Great Britain became the Special Administrative Region.

This week, we look at one of our favorite subject in the Libertines Pub:

Government public announcement.

Before I begin, allow me to invite you to look at the latest masterpiece from the S.A.R government regarding Dancing With The Star Season 13? some political reform bullshit.

For those of you who don't understand Cantonese. Here's a rough translation:

'Fuck you guys, yeah, we are not taking this shit seriously, so fucking what?'

Seriously, that 30 second ad is fruitier than 9000 packets of Juicy Fruit.

Now let's take a look at an ad from 1989, something similar, regarding the Basic Law draft committee or something like that.

Rough translation? : Don't fuck around, this shit is important, do it now!!!

Ok, colonial government you win this round. But wait, there's more!

Here's one from the S.A.R Government, lecturing us on elevator safety.

Rough translation?: We have too much money to spend, let's make something cute on the television, oh btw I promised my 3yo daughter I will put Mcdull on the tele!! let's do it! Yeah! Fuck your tax money!!

Eh.. I guess it's pretty good, for a 3 year old. (Anyway if you need education from the government on elevator safety, you're either a 3 years old or you've came from the past via a time machines e.g Michael J. Fox. and have never encountered one of these device before)

Alright, colonial government, what have you got?

Rough translation : A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.

Seriously,how scary is that shit? did you hear them crying in the end? or is it just me? What? What's a redrum? And why am I crying now?? No!!! I will never burn my countryside!! Please don't kill my kids!

I don't know about you, but after looking at and comparing at these ads, seeing how fruity and failed the S.A.R ads are, the S.A.R government gave me the impression of a guy that just handed in his resignation letter. You know, we have all met someone like that before. He/She resigned, but still have one month to go till he/she leaves the work place, so for the next 30 days, he/she just screws around in the office and while still managed to get by with his/her work, you can tell he/she is just not into it. And if he/she dislikes the current work place and it's people, occasionally he/she is gonna take a piss by doing shit just the way he/she likes it coz he/she just don't gives a fuck.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the ''Hong Kong government'' handed in her resignation letter in 1997 however, she is gonna officially leave her work place in 2047. Meanwhile, forgive her if it seems like she's screwing around and is not interested in your welfare. It's just the way it is.

  1. When things actually look better in the rear view mirror, you know you are in a lot of trouble. Yeah, the 30 days advance notice is really for pussies, employment at will is the best.
