!! OMG, ummm welcome to the 21st Century: Hong Kong Bank Ad Depicts Domestic Worker In ‘Blackface’ !!

blackface.png
This is absurd! Hong Leong Bank in Hong Kong tore a page from the Paula Deen School Of Advertising for their latest ad which features an actor dressed in ‘black face’ and portraying a domestic worker!

This advert’s purpose is to sell domestic helper insurance, but unfortunately it seems to have become a minstrel show that would make D.W. Griffith proud. Chalk one up for racial harmony, Hong Leong.

Check out the terrible ad below! Hard to believe that in the 21st Century — this type of shit still exists!

!! OMG, hunger games: Food Museums are so on trend in China right now !!

fmuseumcrab2.jpg
There’s really nothing more vexing to me than walking through a museum made up of hundreds of delicious and perfectly prepared meals from around the globe — only to find that you can’t taste them, and they’re all incased behind a glass vitrine!
This sounds like a nightmare worse than Kruger! However, in China right now — these twisted labyrinths are all the rage! According to the BBC:

The cuisine museum in the eastern city of Hangzhou is one of a growing number of food museums in China, but it’s probably the most magnificent. It occupies a large site in the scenic hills on the outskirts of town, and was built at a cost of nearly $30m (£18m). Unlike the more modest food museums in cities such as Chengdu and Kaifeng, which are run by private collectors, the Hangzhou museum has been funded by the city government, and entry is free of charge.
The Hangzhou museum has literally hundreds of life-sized models of mouth-watering food. Visitors can feast their eyes on replicas of Buddhist vegetarian dishes, snacks eaten by canal-dwellers in the Middle Ages, and the delicate sweet pastries made in Hangzhou during the Song Dynasty, 800 years ago. There’s a whole cabinet filled with different kinds of zongzi – the leaf-wrapped rice parcels eaten at the Dragon Boat Festival each spring, illustrating their historical evolution.

!! OMG, where do I sign up?: Property Tycoon Posts HK1billion ‘Dowry’ To Find A Husband For His Happily Lesbian Daughter !!

gigi-chao.jpg
Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, a high-powered and hugely successful property tycoon in Hong Kong, has offered a 1 BILLION HK DOLLAR bounty to any male who can woo his daughter into becoming her husband. The only problem is, is that his daughter Gigi plays for the opposite team! She’s also already found someone she loves, and is already an advocate for LGBTQ rights! Anyway — Gigi sounds rad, and provided some very tongue-in-cheek alternative suggestions for her dad’s offering:

“I don’t think my dad’s offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive,” the socialite said in an interview with the Post after her father announced that he was doubling the “dowry” he offered back in 2012 which lured in more than 20,000 suitors.
“Alternatively, I would be happy to befriend any man willing to donate huge amounts of money to my charity, Faith in Love, provided they don’t mind that I already have a wife. Third and lastly, thank you Daddy, I love you too,” she said in the interview.
Gigi works as an executive director at her father’s Cheuk Kang property development company and is known for her charity work and for her position as chairwoman of the Faith in Love Foundation. She is also an advocate for LGBT rights and a founding member of the Big Love Alliance.
She told the Post that while her father’s insistence on finding her a husband has not hurt their relationship, the highly-publicized offers have made her partner of nine years, Sean Eav, “distraught”.
“I understand that he loves me, it’s just he’s from another time and it’s difficult for him to understand the plight of the LGBT [community]. At the office it’s business as usual. At family gatherings we hug and dance. And we just agree to disagree on what marriage is and family is,” she said.
Chao reportedly believes that it’s not too late to change Gigi’s thinking because she’s only 33 years old. “I don’t want to interfere with my daughter’s private life,” Chao said in an interview with Malaysian newspaper Nanyang Siang Pau on January 20, “I only hope for her to have a good marriage and children as well as inherit my business.”

It’s always shocking the amount of denial an incredibly smart person can live with! I mean, if Cecil Chao Sze-tsung made his billions through building an empire with smart, strategic property sales, why can’t he seem to wrap his brain around his daughter’s sexuality? That being said, if any of you ladies own a fake moustache, a suit, and a top hat — this may be just the homewrecking opportunity you’ve be waiting for!

!! OMG, shop ’til you drop: Man commits suicide in mall after girlfriend won’t stop shoe shopping !!

original-1.jpg
Let this be a cautionary tale: Don’t date materialistic bitches!
38-year-old Tao Hsiao was out Christmas shopping at the Golden Eagle International Shopping Center in Xuzhou, China this week when he finally lost it over his girlfriend’s amount of Christmas shoe shopping (for herself of course), and leaped 7 stories to his death inside the mall. How awful! According to Gawker:

“He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime and it was pointless buying any more,” an eyewitness was quoted as saying. “She started shouting at him accusing him of being a skinflint and of spoiling Christmas, it was a really heated argument.”

Okay — ladies in China really need to tone it with their shopping. Just last month another chick lost her shit at her hubby at the Guangzhou Auto Show, and it ’twas not cute!

“This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people,” the spokesman said.

…annnd the spokesman for the mall threw a “BUT” in the statement. Keepin’ it classay.
