• @sam01 @hetieshou @llwy12 idk if Lau Kong is currently struggling financially. He said he acts because it's his passion. During an interview, he said when he was young, he had to work many jobs at once while working at TVB because he had to support his son's out of country college tuition.
  • @sam01 @hetieshou Actually, this interview isn’t complete...they took part of what he said in his Mingpao interview and only reported on the most sensational part. If you read/watch his other interview, he made it clear it’s not because of money....yes, TVB did cut his pay and reduced his hours, but that doesn’t mean he is struggling financially. He’s actually doing fine financially, it’s just TVB’s actions crossed his bottom line and he felt disrespected, so he left. This is what many of the veteran artists have talked about with TVB — at the end of the day, it’s not about the money per se, rather it’s about the lack of dignity and respect. I mentioned in the other thread about another long time green leaf artist, Lau Kwai Fong, who had the same thing done to her (except her pay was cut by 95% instead of half). TVB has been doing the same thing to almost all the green leaf artists, because to them, the younger artists who are more promotable are obviously more important. They are a crap company that has gotten progressively worse over the years. Shame on them for treating veteran artists this way!
  • @sam01 Very good point and I was wondering the same thing. At his age, many are already retired or moved on to better pastures as who wants to stay with a shady company like TVB unless they had no other choice. Even though tvb’s salary is low, many are able to make money through advertisements and stuff. I also wonder if he has any children that help him out? I feel bad for him if he is so old but yet does not have financial stability and had to rely on TVB to make ends meet. So sad that many artists are struggling financially like this. I remember reading about a Yuen Wah who worked so hard but made very little money even though he acted in mainland which pays better. Maybe they did not know how to save and invest?
  • @hetieshou @luye There are many other veteran artists around the same age as him, have already retired from the entertainment industry years ago. I never would have thought Lau Kong are still struggling financially and relying on TVB salary for a living. At his age I thought he would have saved enough money for retirement.
  • @sam01 But Kristal’s political stance is ‘Chapman To for Chief Exec’. Love is blind but she is more blind than others...
  • @sam01 most of the violence r done by the police n undercovers. Stop watching tvb
  • @jimmyszeto Lol he is her husband of course she is going to blindly support him, regardless of his political stance.
  • @goodday Hong Kong police and the Hong Kong government and the Hong Kong court are too soft and treat the rioters and trouble makers and protesters like delicate babies, and even say sorry to the law breakers , even though the government is already way too lenient and too soft to the rioters. This gotta stop or someone will die. One of the idiotic rioters was seen holding a hand gun like object in his hand. In one of the confrontation, a bystander was beaten by the rioters, two men with cleavers rushed out to fight the rioters to save him. This is getting out of hand. In an interview, the kids are saying this is a lot of fun for them this summer, and it's like playing Grand Theft Auto for real! This is not a protest any more! We need to make the organizers pay for the damage. To get a permit to protest, they should put up a bond or buy insurance. That would stop all protests that they can't control. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqhPyMEZ-D8&t=28s
  • @sam01 the damage they caused r mostly to properties but not to people, they didnt cause any serious injuries. Compare to police n the triads they sent to stab ppl thats still in life support n those hit on heads of over hundreds with brain trauma. Also the more violent actions of protestors r done by undercover police
  • @goodday Enough is enough! No one is above the law! These self-proclaimed peaceful protesters who block freeways ARE not protesters, they are considered rioters. The mobs blocked roads and highways with metal barriers, snips traffic light wires and then left one place for the other. Set up barricades to block off the area and defend it against police and disrupted public transport by holding train doors open on the city’s Mass Transit Railway. Imagine when an emergency occurs, (ambulance, fire department, private emergency etc so many possibilities you name it)? You just can’t get to the place, are they gonna take responsibility for it? Of course not those THUGS believe themselves to be EMPERORS who are above the law and free to do whatever they want. These hooligans obstructed and damaged businesses of countless citizens who only want freedom to work without being forcibly obstructed. What have they contributed towards humanity? Their only contributions I see are causing a huge traffic jam, disturbing the people going about their jobs and a big inconvenience to the daily lives of the affected people. They're urban insurgents. There's nothing peaceful about their approach to disrupt the society they're living in, and of course there's an ulterior motive of what they're trying to achieve which has nothing to do with the popular will of the residents in the city. Don't take a word spewed out of their mouths without doing some critical thinking yourself!
  • @goodday When police arrest them, should put their riot protest record on their life history; let see how bright their future employment gonna be. That's the reason they cover their faces anyway, not because of they afraid of CCP but afraid of their future employment. Enough is Enough! Those hooligans aren't above the law! They have rioted, attacked police, committed arson, blocked roads and highways, littered all over the place, vandalized, smashed police cars as well as other vehicles, and destroyed the legco building, police stations and other private & public properties. Attacked others who disagree with their actions, throwing insults and vulgarities... the list goes on. They called themselves as peaceful protesters? What a freaking joke. You and the shameless pan-dems gangs are after nothing but your own selfish political gains and you will not hesitate to trash the government in order to safeguard your interests and position! You and the pan-dems traitors do not represent the majority of HK people or any world class civilization. You maybe represents the triads in hk!
  • @sam01 the violent actions can be done by the undercovered police. Its evident they r undercover dressed as protestors from live broadcast. Some undercovers only speaks mandarin also. The protestors agreed to be peaceful but some r still violent bc thd undercover goals is to kill at least one police. That way they have a good excuse to sent the PLA, its their vicious ploy
  • @goodday Shame on you for supporting and defending these criminals! Regardless of his identity, YOU DON'T TREAT A HUMAN BEING LIKE THIS! It is a situation where people’s basic human rights are flagrantly abused. Who do these protesters think they are? THEY ARE ACTING LIKE A BUNCH OF THUGS AND RED GUARDS. Those hooligans aren't above the law. No one gives them the right to physically assault a defenseless man and tie someone up like that! The man who were detained illegally here is a reporter from mainland China, not a “suspected undercover cop”, and he got beaten up barbarically later but this video didn’t include that part! Those who arrested and beat him are so-called peaceful protesters! This video somehow doesn’t show the part that a “peaceful” protester followed and beat this reporter using an American flag after the reporter was rescued by medical personnels. That’s American way of human rights? Have you seen the the footage of a old HK man leaving the airport being harassed by the mobs just because he would not take a flyer? An old man who refused to take a paper handed out by a protester and was bullied by several protesters! They tried to block the way using their bodies. One of them even pretended to be hit by the old man and fell on the floor. Who thrashed a GoGoVan driver and wrecked his van? A dozen of self-proclaimed peaceful protesters were kicking him continuously when he was down. You'd get more support from the non-sleepwalking population if you just called out everyone who was violent and disavow violence on both sides. There are many more incidents like this. They are the ones who started the fight, turned it into violence. The police officers gave them warning but had no choice to shoot tear gas to disperse them. The majority of the journalists in Hong Kong support the rioters. Therefore, westerners only see the biased news! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vet9F3CbSBY Here is another clip of a young man who were beaten unconsciously by the hooligans. They assault the man just after they found a T-shirt with a statement “I love Hong Kong police”. Hundreds of people beleaguered him, and prevented doctors from helping this man. It was four hours later after the man knocked out, he was finally sent to hospital. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FiIQYycrBU&list=PLRVP_b5EpRxdRu-GzGotv0aUTZCHDR9V8&index=2 There is also a video of a mob lunging a metal rod at an already injured, profusely bleeding police man is evidence the mobsters were organised, prepared, armed and violent. It was "secret" but certainly not loose. These mobs trust no one. They only want blood, want chaos no matter what, want everything they demand. Have you seen the picture of a policeman with blood all over his face? Have you seen the clip showing a policeman being kicked by the rioters on the ground? So it’s ok for the rioters to be violent and the police must stand there to be beaten up? Those who support these rioters must have bricks and rocks thrown in their head! https://resource01.ulifestyle.com.hk/res/v3/image/content/2370000/2373036/20_600.jpg?fbclid=IwAR1y8P-n1d2DJZaPENPtSQb_k37lWzHyh7DRhUkylmOyfJ7BLGDMItxICXo The preparations, etc, clearly shows the rioting was synchronised and organised. The bricks, sharp metal rods, petrol bombs, umbrellas, gas masks, liquid substance, bows and arrows, were all ordered in advance to inflict physical harm on the police and anyone who dared oppose them. The rioters cannot force their opinions on those who support the bill by rioting and holding the city and its inhabitants hostage. This is not democracy, this is mob rule. https://dynaimage.cdn.cnn.com/cnn/digital-images/org/8c30be3f-557c-4e40-b098-64d9ad333545.jpeg https://cdn.dimsumdaily.hk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/28230928/Screenshot-2019-07-28-at-11.07.22-PM.jpg
  • @sam01 that guy is sent to purposely set up the protestors n he belongs to a group of knives stabbers. Look i dont have time to explain details with u but these few days its claim china made many fake news w their social media closed. China admitted its their account but said its closed not bc content but the originator. Loving ur country doesnt mean one needs to love its regime n govt. Look at how Taiwan developed, n history on how they took over china. Just look at the facts from reliable source. Today a hk guy got abducted by them for no reason. Ppl just want rule of law. Its like tell me the rule at least i can avoid.
  • @goodday Have you seen the video showing the mob attacking a global times reporter at the airport and tying him up on a chair? He's a real reporter. Just because this man supported HK policemen (He's got an "I love HK policemen" logo Tee) and stood the opposite position from those protesters, this reporter was tied up and beaten by hundreds of riots. What's more, they frisked him and spread his passport information without any permission! What he said in this clip is: "I support HK policemen, you can beat me!" (Based on the previous experience that the riots had just beaten another guy to nearly dead and stopped the rescue teams from taking the victim to the ambulance car. They kept the victim staying at the airport for more than 4 hours! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4GXZOss6J4 Here is another clip of a young man who were beaten unconsciously by the hooligans. They assault the man just after they found a T-shirt with a statement "I love Hong Kong police". Hundreds of people beleaguered him, and prevented doctors from helping this man.

  • @goodday The media is flooded with biased, one-sided news. The rioters still had the audacity to claim themselves as peaceful. What a freaking jokes. Have you seen the footage showing the rioters throwing bricks, petrol bombs, chemical substance and attacking the police officers with umbrellas and sharp metal rods? Or throwing the metal garbage bin from the bridge trying to strike the police officers under the bridge? Or using the laser pointers pointing at the police officers’ eyes? An old man refused to take a paper handed out by a protester and was bullied by several protesters. They tried to block the way using their bodies. One of them even pretended to be hit by the old man and fell on the floor. There are many more incidents like this. They are the ones who started the fight, turned it into violence.

  • @linda8765 @sam01 have u seen the 26 yr girl that was stabbed, n the 22 yr guy, n the many in ICU struggling for life. If this law is passed hk will really be destroyed. https://www.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/3023796/chinese-human-rights-lawyer-chen-qiushi-missing-after-return

  • @goodday They never cause anyone major injury besides those small flash in the eyes n throwing bottles. Yeah right” you’re indeed a good liar! You must be blind if you can’t see it. I’ve watched everything on Live TV. SO SPARE US YOUR CROCODILE TEARS! We all saw the behaviour of the HK hooligans on TV and read about their death threats to the police on social media, targeting their families and pointing lasers in their eyes. The police were only doing their jobs. Next time, bring out the PLA paramilitary police for these hooligans. Shame on you and the pan-dems for defending these criminals! Those hooligans aren't above the law. The rioters cannot force their opinions on those who support the bill by rioting and holding the city and its inhabitants hostage. This is not democracy, this is mob rule! They want violence in HK. If HK police were like American police, these gangsters would have been road kill. Those protesters are hooligans, how can you storm the legislature building, vandalize the place and wave a foreign flag. Buncha traitors. Those rioters are waving British colonial flags, ignoring that the British KILLED protesters against the British rule, whereas the current police is very patient. Destroying the public property and the government buildings, why don't they try to do that in the US and western countries and see what gonna happen to them. Serve them right, if this happens in anywhere else in the West, police will have open fire already. It is clear from the tactics used by the rioters, they are well organized, equipped, planned and likely rehearsed. Their approaches are much more assertive solely intended to cause mayhem and chaos, very different from the “Occupy” bunch. Rioters likely got professional helps and advices. HK Police must find out who were financially supporting the riot organizers. The place to start looking are those tycoons who have most to lose if the extradition law passes. Sincerely hope HK government would stand the ground and get the extradition law passes. https://media.malaymail.com/uploads/articles/2019/2019-06/HONG_KONG_BRICK_2019_06_12.JPG .
  • @goodday They are paid protesters by CIA and the UK. Should ship them all to the West and see if they really like Western Democracy. Activists have every right to damage and block public places to protest against a law that protect law-abiding citizens and extradite criminals. But law-abiding citizens have NO right to enjoy their life and commute to work and to school. Are Hongkongers trying to say they have every right to harbour criminals whether they’re Chinese or Canadians? We should the pan-democrats traitors along with all the protesters on a one way trip to the U.K. If they love their white master so much. Lol! They will soon learn that the white are not everything they advertised to be. These mobs trust no one. They only want blood, want chaos no matter what, want everything they demand. Have you seen the picture of a policeman with blood all over his face? Have you seen the clip showing a policeman being kicked by the rioters on the ground? So it’s ok for the rioters to be violent and the police must stand there to be beaten up? Those who support these rioters must have bricks and rocks thrown in their head. https://resource01.ulifestyle.com.hk/res/v3/image/content/2370000/2373036/20_600.jpg?fbclid=IwAR1y8P-n1d2DJZaPENPtSQb_k37lWzHyh7DRhUkylmOyfJ7BLGDMItxICXo
