Why Hong Kong People Mind So Much About Mainland China's People?

Korina Sanchez said to her column that in a certain resto in Hongkong a certain mother and his kid doing a thing that does not allowed nor it is not done by people of Hong Kong. The two came from mainland China and they go there for a vacation and shopping of course. The mother let her son to pee on the bottle which they always bring whether they are in China or any places in the world as long as the comfort room is not that accessible this practice is already common in mainland China from little kids down to adults. Hon Kong Chinese don't do this and they feel sick when they see a certain Chinese who will do that thing. Another one is that in China spitting anywhere is another common practice, pushing each other in a certain line of a fast food or a shopping mall counter another thing that in China inserting on a line of people or letting your friend or your self to get a cut inline so that you can pay your bills or buy your food as fast as you can without minding those people who give their patience to stand there and wait for their turn. She said that this kind of culture to HongKong Chinese is disrespectful. Sometimes this two countries will throw bad words to each other saying that "oh hay you are British dogs" and " you too are so naughty and dirty" and all that stuff. I think this kind of attitude and kind of people is present also in Filipinos right as you noticed that during natural disaster there is a floods and storms many victims go pushing each other regardless if that is old or a little kids just to get one bag of relief goods from a certain agency whether it is an NGO or a government. Maybe she just forget to add up that Filipinos are one of these just like people of Mainland China. Do you think would you agree about that? Share your views.

For the Filipinos to be jostling one another just to get their ration of foods during a disaster is sometimes inevitable. That's because some people can really be greedy that they will get more than their share by letting another family member line up again for the ration, so they have to do that. It's a survival thing arvies. But letting your child pee in a bottle in a public place can really be something, specially that it is an eating place and people's way of being hygienic and proper can vary, so it could really be an issue. Not that i am patronizing our own people, but i think Filipinos are a bit discreet when it comes to that in public. At least, they pee where it is not an eating place.

It is a big problem about the peeing and the spiting things.

Yeah I know that is understandable to see things happening during the disaster since it is a survival issue but you know I observe that there some people are also doing this things also even though not that always. I see this also on my school before as you can see student always fall in line during enrollment or to get a grades and all that stuff and sometimes there are ridiculous ones or two's who just pass those who are waiting patiently and insert their papers to their friends which is kinda odd right and even in getting some For Peace amount withdrawing in the ATM banks they dont fall in line which is really ridiculous. Yeah you are right I think that Filipinos are discreet in doing this things but you know what most Filipinos love to pee on the road or any establishment that has a wall like that and I say honestly that I'm one of them yeah I feel much more comfortable to do it than going inside the bathroom even if that is so accessible specially if there is a rush hour I feel shy to go there and see those guys there peeing I don't know why? Atleast I'm honest and I dont think so I can do that on the bottle that is another not comfortable for me.

Well, Korina is just showing Filipinoes a different culture. We filipinoes may not do it, but others do. Korina is not badmouthing China, I believe, it's just that it's an iteresting topic that we might want to watch or to know. indeed it is because it draws your attention too. Yes, youre right other countrymen have weird ways of life, so do we Filipinoes but generally we do almost the same.We may have taken diff paths, diff ways still we end up the same. We fight. we love, we get defeated, we get up, .But to tell you honestly, I find it weird too peeing on a bottle without the presence of public toilets. But it's not unlawful nor bad nor harm others, so it's just fine. And with Filipinoes pushing each other just to get access with the food, well what do you expect? Chinese push each other in a line to buy something, how much more when you are freezing, doomed, hopeless and starving because all you have were exhausted by the terrible calamity. I hope it wont happen to any country to anyone nor family.

I'm glad you get the point here my friend well all I can say why Hong Kong chinese is giving so much bad words to Chinese come from mainland China is that. Hong Kong is under the power of British empire for so many decades and what could you expect? of course they are instilling their traditions to the Hong Kong Chinese and that makes the Hong Kong Chinese different compare to their mother country. The traditions and the cultures of British have been mixed up and absorb for so many generations that until now they still doing it.

No, I don't see anything like that in Filipinos, maybe what your saying is a Chinese citizen residing in the Philippines. Why not prove it to yourself go to the Philippines and do what you are saying. Just don't blame anybody if you'll be mauled by the people next in line. Spitting anywhere, that's not true I witnessed people doing that on street but not all the time and they did it when no people are near them.

I think we are going anywhere here and not on the topic. We are talking about the hitting culture of Hong Kong Chinese and the Mainland Chinese. And I think that Hong Kong never realized that Chinese come from China are bringing lots of money to them and besides I understand the Hong Kong Chinese as well cause Hong Kong has been influenced and under the British empire for so many decades and British made millions on what is Hong Kong right now before they turned over this to the People's Republic of China so the culture and tradition of British people has been absorbed by the Hong Kong Chinese that until today it is still present to their generation.
