I want to express my views on the new policies proposed by our government about building public housing in the countryside. Hong Kong has a real problem, because we have limited space to build new residential estates.
Many teenagers are addicted to celebrities, such as musicians, actors, sports stars ... the list goes on. There are both pros and cons, but I’d like to discuss two disadvantages to this trend.
In a poll in 2016, only 32 per cent of Americans said that they have “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of trust in the mainstream media. The number is especially low among Republican voters, with only 14 per cent of them saying they trust the mainstream media.
I support Hong Kong’s first bike-sharing service, Gobee.bike, which was launched in April. It has brought us many benefits.
Breastfeeding is becoming more common in Hong Kong, mainly because it is healthier than giving formula milk to infants. However, the existing facilities for breastfeeding in public places here are inadequate.
I am writing to express my views on the article “Hong Kong mothers increasingly bring in the professionals when it comes to childcare” (SCMP, April 30).
It is unacceptable that many Hongkongers spend excessively on material goods due to the city’s values and lifestyle which are centred on consumerism. This unhealthy shopping habit causes a serious waste problem that is bad for the environment.
People say Hongkongers will face an identity crisis because they have not been taught Chinese history properly. Therefore, the Education Bureau is considering making Chinese history compulsory in senior secondary school. I do not agree with this.
Communicating is far more convenient for our generation than it was for our parents, thanks to technology.
