10 Reasons Why We Lose Friends

Danny Cheng: "I think the main reason is facebook, when we were young, we meet friends in real, not just reading their facebook! But somehow this is how our world is changing, especially in Hong Kong.. most of the nightclubs and hang out places are closed due to the expensive rent, most people just stay home surfing the social network, and trying to meet "friends"; However, those friendship seems real online, but kinda different in real.. when people build up more net friends, they usually tend to forget the priorities of their real friendships......



One of the worst parts about growing up, apart from being absolutely on your own, is that you lose friends, all of them, one by one. No matter how thick you may be with them, the moment you step into adult life, all of them disappear. This is probably why.

  1. Priorities change. As you grow up, you tend to spend more and more time at work. You no longer have time to meet friends, friends who once meant the world to you. It's only later in life that you realize life is incomplete without them, but it's already too late.
  2. We often forget that friendships can't always be effortless. Making friends is easy, but keeping them is the hard part. Hanging out with them in college seemed easy because it was convenient. But as life moves on, we give up on friendships, we give up too easy. The friendship fades away and we accept it, instead of fighting it, because that's so much more convenient.
  3. Sometimes, it's love that ruins friendships. When one of the two friends enters into a relationship, friendships are often forgotten. They may realize it later but things are never the same. We've all been there and done that too.
  4. Our 20s are a tough time. We're all trying to prove something to ourselves and the world. Some people get lucky; some have to struggle a lot more. When the two people who started from the same point find themselves at crossroads, insecurity creeps in. You're happy that they're more successful, except that you're really not. You soon start drifting away because their presence in your life only makes you feel more miserable. Sometimes, it's your own insecurity and other times, the circumstance is a b*tch.
  5. The support and confidence our families cannot give us, we seek in our friendships. Our friends know us the best, don't they? But a lot times, even your friends don't support your life decisions. And that's the reason why it becomes hard to be around them when their judgments become too sour and unforgiving. There's nothing worse than a friend who bails out on you.
  6. With some friends, you feel like you're the only one making all the efforts. So, you let it go, because you don't want to be ‘the clingy friend', forgetting no relationship in this world is equal, that one person will always have to put in more efforts than the other. And nobody wants to be that person. We'd rather lose them than be the more involved one. Damn our egos!
  7.  Some friends are great to have. But they're also toxic. There comes a point in life where you finally realize what a bad influence they are on you. And you decide you're better off without them.
  8. It becomes difficult for a lot of people to cope with the fact that their friends have made new friends. Being replaced is a terrible feeling, but it happens and it happens to the best of us. The more possessive we become, the more bitter it gets.
  9. Sometimes, you just grow apart. The things you bonded over once don't exist in your life anymore. You're a changed person and so are they. Sometimes, you meet a friend after a long while and realize they haven't grown up even one bit. The conversation becomes painfully forced and that's the moment you know, the friendship's kinda over.
  10. It's funny how we just cut off from our dearest friends and years later, when we're going through old pictures on Facebook, we sit there wondering what really went wrong. It was probably a small argument. You brushed it under the carpet, they never talked about it too and slowly, the friendship died a slow death. Our non confrontational attitude, our habit of not talking about conflicts when it's important, sometimes, costs us our best of friends.

Deliveroo scale up for street battle over Hong Kong food delivery - Deliveroo promo code HK: dannyc0391

Danny Cheng: "With the promo code dannyc0391, you can earn Deliveroo HK$100 credit! Redeem it at https://roo.it/dannyc0391"



Online food delivery companies foodpanda and Deliveroo plan to continue to expand their coverage of Hong Kong neighbourhoods, as tighter funding hits the on-demand food industry in overseas markets.

Deliveroo, which operates in 12 countries, is focusing its efforts in on the customer. In May 2016, the company started offering ordering services in Hong Kong in Chinese and released the Android version of its app.

Deliveroo targets the premium market, while foodpanda has a wider remit, which Bauer said allows it caters to the varied tastes of Hong Kong residents.

Bayley and Jackson Bad Dentist Experience

Danny Cheng: "If you want to avoid unprofessional dentist and being ripped off lots of $$$$$, then you should stay away from Bayley and Jackson Dental Surgeons!"


If you think the Dental Surgeons in Jardine House should be professional? that's totally WRONG!! On Saturday 13 June, 2015, I was planning to polish my teeth; My teeth was fine before, no pain, but their dental surgeon Dr. Yung Yu Ki (容宇琦) said I should remove my wisdom teeth on the upper right, and I trust him; However, after spending around 1 hour, he failed to completely remove my tooth, only pulled half of the teeth, and the root tip is left behind, then he said I should go home and let that heal; In the past few days, I cannot sleep well, feels painful while chewing the foods and moving the jaw, keep thinking what I should do; After 2 days, Dr. Yung Yu Ki still cannot give me the advice on how to remove the root tip left behind, and said nothing he can do and trying to refer me to see their specialist Dr. Ben K C Chow (周烱昌), however their specialist can cost a fortune, they are asking me HK$8000 for removing one wisdom teeth now, I think this is a fraud.

So PLEASE, for your safely, do NOT and NEVER go to Bayley & Jackson Dental Surgeons!

Clear skies over Hong Kong Island as protester stop traffic reaching Central

Danny Cheng: "This proved vehicles should be banned from busy districts asap, also bus companies should use hybrid buses like London asap....."

Pro-democracy protesters may have inconvenienced commuters yesterday, but by blocking roads in some of the city's busiest areas they also managed to clear the skies.

The air quality was better than usual for a weekday in Causeway Bay, Mong Kok and Central, where the protests are centred, according to Environmental Protection Department data.

The health risk posed by air pollutants in the three areas was "low", as opposed to the usual "high", the department's website said. And it remained "low" all day yesterday, except in Mong Kok, where it changed to "moderate" at 3pm.

Kwong Sum-yin, chief executive of the Clean Air Network, said the link was clear.

"The roadside stations mainly detect traffic emissions. They are less susceptible to air pollution from the Pearl River Delta region. So it is quite clear that the protests blocking road traffic have improved the city's air quality," Kwong said.

In Causeway Bay, the level of nitrogen dioxide, an air pollutant emitted by vehicles, more than halved - from 125 micrograms per cubic metre of air at 10pm on Sunday night to about 60 micrograms after 9am yesterday. In Mong Kok, the level fell from 126 micrograms at midnight on Sunday to 70 micrograms after 9am.

And in Central, pollution levels dropped after protesters began occupying Harcourt Road on Sunday afternoon - going from about 110 micrograms per cubic metre of air at 7pm on Sunday to about 60 micrograms after 9am yesterday.

A department spokeswoman confirmed that reduced traffic in the areas had helped lessen air pollution levels at the roadside monitoring stations.

Kwong said the temporary improvement showed the effectiveness of a low-emissions zone proposed by the government, in which polluting vehicles would be banned from busy districts.

Let's transform Des Voeux Road into green zone

Danny Cheng: "Yes, Brilliant idea, so we can ride bike to work for sure! Des Voeux Road Central need to be transform asap; And when can the Bus Company start using hybrid buses!? Please do something for our city asap now"

Busy Des Voeux Road Central in the heart of Hong Kong's business district should be transformed into a bus-free zone so that pedestrians and office workers can breathe cleaner air, the Institute of Planners has suggested to the government.

The vision was laid out in a joint study by the institute, City University, the Civic Exchange think tank and the MVA Hong Kong transport and planning consultancy firm.

Under their plan, the 1.5-kilometre section of Des Voeux Road Central, stretching from Pedder Street to Morrison Street, would be closed to all vehicles except necessary traffic such as banks' security vans, delivery vans and emergency vehicles.

Bus routes would be diverted to Connaught Road and nearby streets so that the tram would become the only form of public transport allowed along Des Voeux Road Central.

Know Your Parking Spot in Advance

Danny Cheng: "That's Good, do Times Square, Taikoo Shing and Pacific Place working on this project now?"

Ok so you drive into the public parking lot and keep circling around to find an empty spot. Cut, rewind and refresh! So you are back at the parking lot, only this time the ticket stub prints out the exact next available parking with a color-coded block, indicating the precise location for you. How cool is that! You not only save time in finding a spot, you also can find your way back to the car without a hitch. Awesome!
