TTT - Talk of the Town Today

To illustrate the TTT, we have this collage photo of boring suited guys :-)

This morning, the budget announcement was televised from the legislative council. In the spotlight and to the disappointment of many, the income tax will only be slightly reduced, contrary to speculation of a big cut. Many more talkathons will take place around town on this . (I should add that HK's income tax rate is considered "not high", say...comparing with Canada. Ouch!)
Update: Quite a day! HK's Bishop Zen (a very outspoken critic of Beijing and the local government) has been nominated Cardinal by the Pope. The HK diocese is the only one under Vatican on Chinese soil.

I loved this post. It shows that no matter where we are in the world, tax breaks are always big promises. I also loved hearing about the Bishop being nominated by the Pope. I had never put HK in the same basket as all of the latin countries regarding catholocism.
