Ok. I know this is old news but i have just read the full length story and I cannot belive what i'm reading. Does this not constitute racism? This man shoud be sacked from his job immediately. Only a man with a small dick would write this article.
In a controversial and often scathing indictment of today's expatriates, the former BBC journalist and regular television pundit Chip Tsao said in his column: "In this day and age hanging out with a gweilo is `out'. Before 1997, Hong Kong was a British colony so showing up with a gweilo at a ball or in Lan Kwai Fong escalated your status 100 times. Gweilos were high society and they either lived at the Peak or on Tai Tam Road." Writing in Easyfinder magazine, Tsao said Hong Kong's pre-colonial population of rich westerners sailed off into the sunset with ex-governor Chris Patten and the Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation after the handover.
"The ones who stayed behind were left to fend for themselves. They had no choice but to move to dorms on Lamma Island or to rent stone houses that people in Sai Kung use to house pigs," his column said.
"Clad in T-shirts, shorts and a pair of flip-flops, nowadays you see them buying beer from 7-Eleven so they can get the free gifts. They even try bargaining with the new mainland immigrant cashier to try to get a 10 per cent discount."
Tsao warned local girls not to hang out with westerners in Lan Kwai Fong unless they wanted to have a one-night stand in a small flat with "a guy who was muscular but did not last long in bed".
He concluded: "In this day and age you have to be careful when choosing a gweilo. They no longer have cars or property. You might end up stepping on a penniless landmine. It's too much to sacrifice for a passport."
Asked to reflect on his column, Tsao told the Sunday Morning Post it reflected his personal observations and those of his friends. "Hong Kong used to be an international city and English was important. But now we are just like the mainland. We talk about loving the motherland. In today's atmosphere dating a gweilo is like selling out your country."
Sh*t...a lot of the stuff he says rings true with what all the whingers in the wimmens and relationships section on AX complain about...Creepy, but he seems to be sending a warning signal out to all potential gold diggers that they might be Sh*t out of luck with the modern gwailo...not the Peak livin, Beamer drivin, bankerwa*ker...just the flip flop, fake gucci sunnies and the "I'm cool with wonton" attitude...
hahaha...sorry, I found the article funny...rude...but still funny.
Shame he didn't bother going into what gits local blokes can also be; how they, for the most part, lack muscle definition AND can't last long in bed either (nor have much in the "tackle" area to offer in the first place), etc etc.
It's easy to throw stones; much harder to look in the mirror. I'd like to see Chip and his mates rate themselves on a scale of 1-10 in terms of sex appeal and what they have to offer women. That would be fun.
when/where was the article published?Would like to read it..and write a letter back maybe...
just like a lot of similar nasty remarks ,stems/smacks from jealousy .Pure and simple.
Someone should tell him that....
