Letter from the Editor - February 2015

 

FEBRUARY is the season of love. We start this issue by capturing the Hong Kong Observation Wheel's very first Valentine's Day. There are also stories about the Chief Executive's Policy Address, interesting people and almost forgotten industries.

Our cover story features the youth hostel scheme proposed by the Chief Executive, looking at whether the scheme would make owning a home a more attainable goal for the younger generation. Then, our politics feature digs into educators' concern over the government's proposal to encourage more local schools to team up with sister schools on the Mainland.

We also look into the fascinating life stories of people from different corners of society, including an impersonator of North Korea's leader. Last but not least, you will see photo essays on the Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market and the struggling flower plaque industry.

This month also marks the start of another year in the Chinese world. We wish you a happy and prosperous Year of the Goat (Or is it a Sheep? Ram?) Share your comment on our website or write to us!
