World AIDS Day, Tsim Sha Tsui in Red

Just when I wondered if the World AIDS Day would be neglected by silence in Hong Kong, the government surprised me with a concert at the outdoor space next to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, although the star powers invoked were more of teenage idols for local secondary school students, with most of the participants sporting a red scarf, a “magnified” version of the red ribbon, said the organisers.

The Clocktower at the former Tsim Sha Tsui train terminal was beamed grotesquely red, which I overheard a passer-by uttering “wow scary” in Chinese.

Be scared of the disease, but not the people carrying the virus, is the message that has to be constantly reminded of over and over again until a cure is found!
