As any working journalist covering the now four-month-old protests will tell you, the yellow, high-visibility vests are no guarantee against being targeted for violence. Reporters and photographers covering the protests have been punched, pepper-sprayed in the face, and shot with tear gas canisters in the past few weeks alone. The vests do, however, have a legitimate function. The Hong Kong government does not issue an official press card. As such, journalists can only produce cards issued by their employer or affiliated organisation. What the fuck, indeed.
If you dream of traveling to Hong Kong, have the courage to pursue it. Hong Kong is perpetually short on space and overflowing with people, reason why the country is sprinkled with eye-popping high-rise apartment buildings to address the housing crisis. And if you feel like escaping the bustling, futuristic jungle, rush to the outlying areas with hills and beaches that remain untainted by commercialism.

A Canadian vlogger has been facing ominous threats on social media after his latest trending video on Hong Kong chaos inadvertently exposed the hypocrisy of the so-called "peaceful protests. Toby Guu, who visited Hong Kong expecting to witness the alleged police atrocities against "peaceful protesters" in line with international media reports, was left shocked by the violence unleashed by the masked rioters, compelling him to change his opinion and question the democratic credentials of the protesters. There was actually more violence from protesters," Guu told CGTN after witnessing and documenting the protest for one full day. In the end, he was convinced that the Hong Kong protesters' behavior went against democratic principles. Toby Guu, a young social media influencer, had started traveling globally since and conceived the idea of visiting Hong Kong after reading stories about the protest in international media. The vlogger put his ideas bluntly at the very beginning of his video that was posted on YouTube on September After packing his gear — including his camera equipment, a high-visibility yellow vest bought on Amazon, a photoshopped fake media pass and his Canadian passport — Guu sets out on his journey to Hong Kong.

I don't really care if she's religious or not, unless she brings it up all the time or tries to convert me. Try a variety of dates. I'd gladly give it all up to have him and feel wanted. Part of me feels like will I ever get chosen for one weekend as a priority over medicine. I have feeling you stopped pursuing anyone unlikely to go for you. Thank you so much for your comment. If you can genuinely deconvert her then cool. I have found strength I never knew I had but if I knew then what I know now, I might have made a different decision. Good luck and my prayers are with you.
