    Thanks, I will be in HK from 20th to 28th that's election time eh? We just received our mainland visa for 10 days so we could go on to visit Shenzhen should HK become troublesome.
    I understand one can catch a train from West Kowloon to Futian Shenzen right? should be pretty straight forward.
    However, I am wondering whether we should book accommodation in China beforehand or I can go up and book a room while there.

    I think it might be handy if someone can write for me in Chinese
    " I want to go to Futian Station to catch the bullet tain to Hong Kong":

    Thanks

    This is a great video. Well in fact, it's two videos. The first one was a street interview of two journalists students. They were asked questions, and when the first student was unable to answer coherently, the second one took over, and did no better!

    The second is of a Chinese student from China confronting students from Hong Kong in a unviersity in Germany.

    Note how coherent and fluent she is in three langages, in contrast, all the Hong Kong students could do is chant and scream!

    Never have I feel so ashame to be a Hong Konger, if these are the standards of our "highly educated class", there's no hope for the future!

    Good luck and have a good time!

    Don't let what you see here stop you from enjoying yourself!

    I would like to say, the situation is not as bad as the MSM likes to paint it.

    Most of my cohorts in our Chinese community have returned from Hong Kong for the Chung Yung festival last week. They have been away for most part of a month. And they are say the same story.

    That is, during the week, there's no problem, except we have to be on the look out justvin case.

    All the problems happens in the weekends. And even these are restricted to a few places. Often you could be a few blocks away and wouldn't know a riots is happening a few blocks away if it wasn't for the sirens.

    These "weekend warriors" are cowards, and their tactic is hit and melt away.

    So stay a low profile, and try not to get in a conversation just in case.

    Be lucky and have fun.

    Why is ironic? It's only Ironic if you think a guy from China shouldn't be at the demonstration, be arrested and punished.

    It's your sterotypical view that makes it IRONIC!

    That guy joining the protest( if he intended to be a pro-rioter) would mean nothing. I am pretty sure that a small percentage of Mainlanders may have a very nuanced view about the protests. And an even smaller may even side with the HK rioters ( even if it sounds crazy- humans are really complicated). But hey, China is some 1.4 Billion or something like that, right? Inconsequential,therefore.
    In fact, I'd be concerned if there was no one in the mainland who would feel a little bit pro-rioter.
    There are some people who like to eat the crust of the pizza than the middle.
    There are some people who believe that their pet cat is a reincarnation of their departed relative.
    Some people might worship Snails.:rolleyes:

    buddy it's ironic 120 yuan bought him jail time (according to his version of events):
    University of Hong Kong student jailed for six weeks for carrying retractable baton for self-defence
    • Chen Zimou said in court he feared for his safety due to prevailing anti-mainland sentiment and violent protests in Hong Kong
    • He bought the baton online after he suffered serious injuries in an assault in Zhuhai last year
    follow the link https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong...y-hong-kong-student-jailed-six-weeks-carrying if interested, actually you Gate. may want to read it, it says he wasn't part of a riot (according to his testimony and according to the magistrate)

    The same video has been blocked by youtube for being against hate speech. Shows you the bias Youtube policy that ir does not allow for counter-argument.
