Vivian: What’s up with compatriots? Could it be possible that good bacteria can heal mysterious diseases?
麻婆豆腐走辣: I saw this when I got off work yesterday night. I even told my girlfriend, “Are these locusts retarded?”
In recent month, there is a rumour in China that Yakult can enlarge breasts, whiten skin and even prevent cancer. However, Mainalnd Chinese worry that Yukult factories in China use tainted milk powder, therefore they switched to drink Hong Kong made Yukult. Mainland Chinese smugglers rush to Northern District to buy them all. Hong Kong made Yukult is always out of stock in grocery stores and pharmacies but Yukult said that it would not increase production. Besides competing for baby milk powder, Hongkonger again have to compete with Mainland Chinese for Yukult.
In recent days, whenever Yukult becomes available in Northern District pharmacies and grocery stores, it will be immediately snapped up. Housewife Ms Chui expressed that Yukult was getting expensive and harder to buy, “I had never thought that Mainland Chinese would rush to buy Yukult. Some stores even clearly state that they only let Mainland Chinese buy. ” Another housewife Ms Lau said, “Before, there were stacks of Yukult, now there are all gone. It is hard to buy even in ParknShop and Wellcome.
Yukult becomes a highly sought-after product because Mainland Chinese netizens claim that it has magical efficacy. It is sold on Taobao (*Chinese Ebay) for 9.8 to 11 RMB. Sellers claim that it can enlarge breasts, whiten skin and be used as facial masks. Some Mainland Chinese netizens suspect that China Yukult was made from tainted milk powder. Therefore, they switched to buy Hong Kong made.
Yakult’s breast enlargement recipe on China Weibo
小芸芸芸芸兒: Ha…Eat papayas and drink Yakult while playing with cell phone alone. It is said that this is the secret for breast enlargement. This is advice from a busty woman. Ha
A netizen made a fake advertisement to promote Yukult as a breast enlargement product.
Issac: Yesterday, when I went to Wellcome, the price of Yakult was immediately increased to $19.9 for 2 small packs.
陳: They started to target low price beverages in Hong Kong…In the near future, we won’t even be able to buy distilled water.
Chan: Today at San Po Kong, a group of Mainland Chinese were purchasing a large quantity of Yukult. The boss immediately neglected my existence.
Hui: Last time, I saw a guy (*a smuggler) packing 3 big boxes of baby milk powder…and this is the brand that my child eats…I really wanted to beat him.
Yu: Strong country people, to be frank, whether you have brain or not, it is none of my business. However, your goods obstruct passengers compartments. Also, you make the price of Yakult inflate. You harm others like that. It is really an offense.
Siu: Why does our Hong Kong have great inflation? It is because of them…They don’t even trust their own country products, how can they tell others to trust them as well?
Sze: Seize our milk powder…Seize our hospital beds…Seize our buildings…Seize famous brand…Seize Hong Kong birth certificate…Seize our degrees…Seize Hong Kong social welfare…They have already seized everything…Now…even Yakult has to be seized…Is Mainland China really that bad? 1.3B people go to Hong Kong, this extremely small place, to compete with 7M people for food? Does Hong Kong food taste better? After you consume it, will it promote longevity?
Joanne: What things they don’t rob? They rob both eatable and non-eatable things. They also rob douchebags and hospital beds. Locusts…
Flk: Hong Kong is engulfed by locusts in just 15 years!
From UNWIRE.HK gag daily,
UNWIRE.HK笑料報: Sill speculating on Yakult? It’s out of date, speculating on potato chips is trendy right now.
Ivy: All Hong Kong living goods will be bought up by Mainlanders. At that time, we will have to buy them from China. I have a suggestion. Can we smuggle CY Leung into China? This is really insane!!
Hans: Please levy sales tax on non-residents. Levy it first, review it two years later.
