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

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

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, bend and snap: Grainne Quinlan photographs Tai Chi enthusiasts with hilarious results !!

No, that’s not a new press photo for Daft Punk. It would be really hot if it was, but the music industry just hasn’t evolved to that level of glamour yet. The photo is actually from Irish, Hong-Kong based photographer, Grainne Quinlan‘s (pronounced Granny?) photo series White Crane Spread Wings which documents Tai Chi enthusiasts in Hong Kong.
I grew up in a part of a suburb that was populated mostly by new Hong Kong immigrants to Canada, so this photoseries is giving me crazy nostalgic vibes right now. I would see this on the steps of the library every morning on my way to school. I also like it because it’s like viewing an elderly version of Elle Woods’ “Bend and Snap”. Never a bad thing!
Check out the rest of Grainne‘s White Crane Spread Wings photoseries after the jump.
