Before I start about my HK trip, I would like to bring this one thing that we experienced in our Macau/HK trip.
We were totally un-impressed (at all) with the attitudes of the people there (mostly are China citizens).
If you try to google the rude attitudes of these people, you might be able to see some defensive comments (specifically on the inductive generalisation fallacy). I don’t agree.
Yes, I have been warned by friends, that have been or have direct experience with these people, BUT most of the thing caught me un-expectedly. But well, like what May Lee mention, why let all these people ruin your day?
The Top 5 list of things we’ve encounter (in no particular order):-
ONE (Cutting Queue)
Cutting queue is Very Very and I mean VERY common. Its even more obvious if you are at Disneyland as most of the shows/entrance require you to queue. These people will just appear out of nowhere and standing next to you. And in a blink of eye, they’ll be like at least 50m in front of you.
Even if you do try to tell them “Pai-tui” (queue up in Mandarin), they’ll just conveniently ignore your comment and look straight at the queue (as if trying to target where they want to jump the queue). I really take my hats (ok no hats..probably my brain) off these people for their ignorance and “super-muka-tebal”.
TWO (Grabbing Stuff)
Ok, its almost like cutting queue just that its a different approach. I was with Eric browsing and commenting at a LV belt.
*Me and Eric standing position exactly in front of the belt rack, which means you can’t see what we looking at as the belt rack is small”
Devil : Eh, this belt looks quite nice (pointing to a particular belt)
Eric : yea…..
*interupted by a stupid ugly bitch*
you know what? She just conveniently, stuck her hand out from somewhere behind our shoulder and just grab the belt (yes, the one that I mention to Eric) and walk away with it.
What the fuck is this Kiasu-ness that she’s trying to potray la.
*Fucking ugly Bitch of the century*
THREE (They think they got Money means everything)
Well, to a certain extent I think it is. But these people think they are the KING of the world.
After paying for the ticket to the entrance for Disneyland, you need to queue to go through the security for manual bag checkings. So halfway through when we were queueing up, there’s a very loud (its real loud)….
Man : “wo pu kuan!!!”
(I don’t care)
Security : *trying to explain that this is a procedure*
*but being interupted halfway*
Man : “wo pu kuan ya… ni wei she me yao cha wo de bei bao ma!!!”
(I don’t care… why you want to check my bag??)
*halway pushing the security shouting with his saliva everywhere* (i’m not kidding)
and the golden word???
Man : “wo kei chian le, ni pu yong kan wo de bei bao”
(I pay money already, you don’t need to check my bag)
He created such a scene that the security actually let him in via a different door, and yes without checking his golden-bag.
FOUR (Immigration Officer in Macau)
After checking out via the Immigration in Macau, there was a man in front of me running towards another immigration officer walking somewhere la.
Man : Officer, I’m going out to Malaysia. Do you know whether I will be tax for my purchase on alcohol and ciggaretes upon my arrival. (politely)
Before the officer can answer, he stare at the fella for 3 seconds
Officer : How would I know?! I’m working in Macau not Malaysia right?
Man : Oh, like that, what if I bring in alcohol and cigarattes from Malaysia in to Macau.
Officer stare at him again
Officer : How would I know???
And he walk away.
FIVE (Nail-clipping in the air)
Sounds nice. You bet!
On our way to Macau, there was this uncle sitting nicely by himself over a three seater on AirAsia plane.
Halfway through the journey, he sat up and start cutting his finger nails. Then he started taking off his shoes and clip-away his toe-nails!
How gross is that?
UPDATES : I have the privillege in obtaining this evidence on the nail clipping.
Just check out the gross fella’s pics!!!
Well, these are just some of the examples. There’s many more if you were to ask me.
Do drop by some notes if you have experienced the same stuff!
