I think every one knows what happened recently in Hong Kong. I have written about my trip to HK, and before that, I’ve been learning Cantonese from songs and movies for many years. It’s a nice city, very different from Taipei. In the evening, the view around Victoria Harbor is stunning . Many singers or actors I like come from that place. So, of course I am concerned about what happened there, but I do have a mixed feeling about it. I don’t have enough time to understand the whole thing, so it’s hard for me to make a comment. On the other hand, just like one of my favorite singer was not born in Hong Kong, I am also concerned about those who come from Mainland and are staying in HK. It must be embarrassing and awkward for them at this moment.
What I can say now for sure is that I support people’s right to express themselves. And a government should listen to their citizens. At this moment, I don’t want to see any bloodshed or violence taking place during the protest.
I’ve heard that the yellow ribbon on the tree means a wish for people returning home safely. This is also what I hope. I hope everyone can come home safely.
