    Hope I display my relationship in a "professional way" -- perhaps I'm too good at it, as I once criticized by a Parisian!

    I had no idea that the gender choice of a partner might influence the "professionalism" of public display of the relationship. Are non-straight people extra horny or something? I never knew!

    She's saying she doesn't like it when same sexes kiss or something in front of her. Basically, the same old same old.

    Having said that, I do think the we need to recognise the prudish and backward nature of a lot of the population in this city. (I see it even in the ladies changing room ... women hiding in the shower cubicle to change rather than changing in the changing area!). Seeing gay people being affectionate in public is the same kind of thing. So one should expect a slower transition than somewhere like Sweden where walking around with no clothes on was pretty common 30+ years ago. A "civil union" concept is not a bad stepping stone. It's what the UK had before marriage.

    A perfect example of the DAB silver spooned riff raff wrecking HKG
    Her Daddy;s company gave the ex commissioner of police a job on retirement
    She said the Ex-Bill should be retired and then brought up later
    She tried to earn brownie points by visiting the alleged Taiwan murder suspect in jail here to persuade him to voluntarily return to Taiwan to be hanged
    His reply of course referred her to interact with her mother

    The planets aren't going to collide with each other, the solar system won't be turned upside down , the comet isn't crashing down in our planet, humans won't starve to death - IF SAME SEX MARRIAGE HAPPENS OR IS RECOGNIZED.

    So, why not. I'm tired of seeing/hearing this ongoing debate on same sex marriage.

    Really? I don't think so. Any Tom Dick and Harry can visit as long as the patient agrees and they're over 12.
