White No More

I saw a news article in the Star yesterday - "HK Women 'fallen out of love' with white men".

Apparently, women in HK have stopped dating white westerners because they are no longer seen as fashionable and wealthy. According to reports, the women have claimed that since the territory returned to Chinese rule in 1997, "the white men left behind were inferior specimens more likely to be seen clad in t-shirts, shorts and a pair of flip-flops and living in rural houses where locals used to house pigs".


But I find that amusing. These women proudly admit to dating white men as their passport to get out of the country and hopefully to greener pastures abroad, and now realize that hey, our Chinese men are doing far better these days!

"They no longer have cars or property. You might end up stepping on a penniless landmine. It's too much to sacrifice for a passport".

Coincidentally, Sarong Party Girl from Singapore has only recently started dating a local Chinese man, and has stopped seeing the previous mat sallehs whom she used to date.

Maybe it's not just HK, but a regional fad that whites are no longer THAT desirable. Oh well.

Kudos to the local men for having their women back!
