My neighbor, the bar tender, said that Blue Girl beer has increased their trade prices.
I’m not surprised that rice may be next, although most of our rice comes from Thailand and China, and that we may be paying more again :’(

I don't have a problem with this personally. I specifically chose to live somewhere less 'expat' in Hong Kong because I wanted to have a little more of a 'local' experience.
The frugal Chinese on Peng Chau I think don't see the point in paying 35 dollars for a glass of beer when they can drink for about 4-5 dollars a can with a 12-pack. So the drinking I see on Peng Chau is a group of locals with many cans of beer, sitting out near the water/beach drinking away. Have to say I tend to agree with them, never could understand such a huge markup for alcohol as, say, compared to food which actually requires a lot more skill to prepare.
I used to have a weekly appointment in Yau Ma Tei and club 7-11 was in full swing.
So whether locals drink more or not, the ones that do seem to do it on a budget.
So Brits. not only drink more than HKers, they drink four times as much! 🤔 What a surprise... not!

Still dark on Jacinda? Genuine question.
The source of the infection was not found in several cases today, but most of them said they had been to bars
I agree that closing bars is very likely to slow and prevent new infections, but only if it is accompanied by lots of other closures.
But imagine if I thew this out there...
