    Yep, what Hong Kong really needs is 10,000 more civil servants. That high pitched whistle is the sound of Cowperthwaite spinning in his grave.

    A fair few "F&B establishments" in TST are playing fast and loose with the new regulations. First place I was in insisted all customers ordered food (token order acceptable), next place which was busier as it was later didn't even bother with the pretence. Some places in East TST that I didn't even know sold food were still open for business.

    Five guys in K11 was mobbed. People waiting for seats by the time I was leaving.

    Sounds like you have a problem.

    Whilst going up the escalators last night I had to walk by the Armoury in Tai Kwun and it was surprisingly quite busy. I've been to the Armoury many times before and have never noticed their food offerings - always assumed it was more of a bar - and noticed that none of the punters were actually eating anything.

    This draws reinforces the question and confusion on how the hell the current administration is actually defining and enforcing what constitutes a bar vs a restaurant. Ridiculous.

    It is refreshing to see a previouly staunch defender of the shitty Lam administration is now coming round to seeing it for its true colours.

    To be clear - I have never been a fan of the Administration which I have always (pre-protest days) seen as incredibly inefficient, incompetent especially when it comes to driving the necessary technology changes in HK to bring this place up to par. Feel free to dig through my post history on my disdain for general ways of working for both the HK government and business community.

    I didn't like them any more or less during the protests nor do I like them now.

    But when faced with the lesser of two evils, I do not side with the destruction of HK's economy and the now shattered veneer that we were previously skating on.

    I think you'll find the inept response from Lam's administration has skewered HK's economy more than any of the protests.

    I've read a lot of the literature and arguments that the protest movement has put forward out of curiosity as I consider myself a moderate.

    The economy - other than destroying Chinese affiliated businesses and the admitted self destruction of Hong Kong's economy if the one side didn't get their way - was never on any protest agenda.

    edit: btw instead of getting on an online tussle, let's meet the next time I come to Japan (or you come to HK) and I am happy to discuss our differences in person. I will buy the first round.
