    (*) as far as mainlanders are concerned; some exceptions may apply wrt. rural population and visitors of non-Chinese background thanks to United Front efforts.

    The missus wants to go to the flower market tomorrow. Is there a list of yellow stalls or alternative yellow flowers markets?

    Stall No.49 in Victoria Park's flower market is yellow (sorry I couldn't find English version of the news)

    Google only cares about $$$

    Look at their "search" result update, everything looks like ads because they want to increase their conversion rates of clickthroughs to make more money
