    Still in love w Expats

    I think we can safely say that HK is a very fine city if the only thing worth being printed is this: (or that the Standard is really hmmm)

    Still in love with expats - The Standard

    Yeah baby, we still got it.

    (a very scientific survey made a 2 AM in Lan Kwai Fong I suppose)

    they should have added an additional question "would you accept a lifelong partner who was mainland chinese WITH money"

    I read this in the Standard this morning and think it's a bunch of crap. There are people who are interested in marrying outside their culture but in every country I have been to they seem to be in the minority. The majority of people seem to marry within their own culture from what I have witnessed. The article is right about one thing. The HKers who marry outside their culture seem to prefer people from wealthier Western countries.

    The survey ranked dignity, financial capability, personality, understanding and property as the five most important characteristics that Hong Kong women seek in a spouse.
    Financial standing and property..... 2 of the 5 attributes listed. Surprised the other three were not good job, designer clothes and a sports car

    Interesting that it seems a sense of humour isn't required either!

    Financial standing buys the clothes and the sports car though.

    Interesting. I wonder why in the world the DAB (the HK branch of the CCP) would conduct such a survey, whether or not (or to what degree) they manipulated the results or cherry-picked respondents, what the other questions were, and in what unpleasant/xenophobic ways they're going to use the results.

    I imagine this is the start of many people's reactions to articles in the Standard!

    The question needs to be rephrased.

    Would anyone want Hong Kong female as their lifetime partner?
