1. Australian in HK﹕Mid-Autumn: moon language Publishing Date: 2013/9/17
  【明報專訊】Most Hong Kong people pronounce "moon" as "mun", as in the character 門. But the correct pronunciation is "mooooon" as in "spoon", or as in the surname "Poon". Mr Poon is not Mr "Pun"!
2. Foreigner in HK﹕9.11 Publishing Date: 2013/9/10
  【明報專訊】In Hong Kong we dial 999 in an emergency. In the US the number is 911. In fact 911 can also be used in many other places. Tomorrow we remember that 2001.09.11 was callously chosen as the date for terrorist attacks on the US in which around 3,000 people died.
3. Foreigner in HK﹕Start of school year thoughts Publishing Date: 2013/9/3
  【明報專訊】When I think about education in Hong Kong I become sad. I think of six-year-olds being forced to attend two kindergartens, one in the morning, one in the afternoon. The same six-year-olds are often forced to attend summer school classes with lots of homework right through the holidays.
4. Foreigner in HK﹕Typhoons, hurricanes & cyclones Publishing Date: 2013/8/27
  【明報專訊】In Hong Kong we say "typhoon". In the US they say "hurricane". In Australia they say "cyclone". But all three names mean the same thing - a storm with strong wind and heavy rain, spinning like a top (陀螺). The only difference is that a storm which begins north of the equator rotates clockwise, while a storm which begins south of the equator rotates anticlockwise.
5. Foreigner in HK﹕How to improve your spoken English Publishing Date: 2013/8/20
  【明報專訊】People sometimes ask me, "How can I speak better English? I've studied English for many years. I can read and write ok, but I'm not very good at spoken English. What can I do?"
6. Foreigner in HK﹕Special pedestrians in HK Publishing Date: 2013/8/13
  【明報專訊】Some years ago a famous Australian rugby player on a visit to Hong Kong said that Hong Kong pedestrians would make good rugby players, because "they come straight at you and don't give an inch".
7. Foreigner in HK﹕Asylum seekers in Hong Kong Publishing Date: 2013/8/6
  【明報專訊】The status of asylum (庇護) seekers is a sensitive topic in many parts of the world. From Hispanics trying to enter the US or Asian boat people trying to enter Australia to Africans trying to enter Europe - this is a hot topic for governments.
8. Foreigner in HK﹕Cloud English Publishing Date: 2013/7/30
  【明報專訊】It's the rainy season, and many clouds are in the sky these days. I often wonder how the clouds can support the heavy rain in the sky before dropping it to the earth. What keeps the rain from falling?
9. Foreigner in HK﹕Prison torture - shame on the USA! Publishing Date: 2013/7/23
  【明報專訊】According to the United Nations, keeping a prisoner in solitary confinement (獨囚) for more than 15 days constitutes torture (酷刑). But in the United States there are currently some 80,000 inmates in prolonged solitary confinement. Many of them have been there for years, even decades!
10. Foreigner in HK﹕Zoos and animal English Publishing Date: 2013/7/16
  【明報專訊】Summer holidays are here, a time when many people will visit a zoo in Hong Kong, on the Mainland or elsewhere. In Hong Kong we have beautiful birds and other "creatures great and small" at Kowloon Park, Hong Kong Park, the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens, Ocean Park, and Noah's Ark.
