Why did I start such a blog?
I started this blog in early 2011. It was originally a small dictionary that introduced people about politically incorrect Hong Kong usages.
Later, I noticed that many Mainland Chinese Internet news blogs portrayed Hong Kong through the view of Mainland Chinese, and even worse, their sources are CCTV and other Mainland Chinese media. On the same time, I found that there wasn’t one English blog that paints the political picture of Hong Kong from Hongkongers’ view. Most importantly, many Hongkongers write in Cantonese online, which isn’t even taught in Hong Kong officially. Therefore, I changed my direction from explaining terms into writing internet news. It is extremely sad that the voice of Hong Kong netizens is almost invisible in the English language media.
About Netizens’ Comments
My first source of Hongkonger’s comments is Facebook groups. My second source is HKGolden since it is uncensored and always mentioned in local media.
Why don’t I give original links of comments? Why do I blur people’s profile pictures and names?
The political atmosphere of Hong Kong is not as free as one sees from the outside. Anti-China/anti-Communist Party/anti-government comments may cost people their friendships, love lives and even jobs.
