    Get ready to be pegged to the RMB soon (for many other reasons too).

    What, the US suddenly discovered that Hong Kong is not one of their 65 states?

    Dubai is doing the same thing on an even larger scale.

    Yes BUT: down in Wong Chuk Hang - direction Eastbound - there's still a sign telling "Mugs" that they'd better turn left, past the "Cop Shop" to get to the floating restaurant !!!!

    Perhaps furious conned visitors should backtrack to the "G--po" station and lodge a "Missing boat" claim? <Snigger>

    I won't comment on "Tai Pak" as to whether it has similarly "Shuffled off its mortal coil", I have never even eaten on it.

    I do remember, multi-many years ago, something like 45 year, my future wife & I ate on a CONCRETE boat "moored" on the shore-line around where the shoreline used to be at Chinese University. (I think that was its location).

    I suppose it was "sunk" by new constructions forcing the shore line back from the train station?

    A lot of HK officials, including John Lee, are being sanctioned by the US. So it is expected that HK / John Lee would enforce a US sanction on another party?

    I am confused, don't really understand the "sanction" thing.

    Since a lot of HK govt officials are already sanctioned by the US, why de feck would they care if US wants to sanction HK even more if they allow this big boat to stay in HK waters and pay HK prices for fuel n food (if they do resupply here). the boat owners can afford any price

    And may be it can be an amazing corporate event platform for some banking CEOs that love to DJ.
