On the evening of August 23, I arrived home and turned on the TV. Who would have known that I (or, as a matter of fact, the whole of Hong Kong) would be watching live footage of a bus coach of Hong Kong tourists being held hostage in Manila.
Because it was a live hostage drama, no one knew what was going to happen. As it went on, things started to go wrong and images were starting to get disturbing. No need to go into details but what started as a pleasure holiday trip ended in bloodshed.
This incident has shocked and angered a lot of Hong Kong people. Instead of showing hatred to the Filipino people, this is a solemn period and should be a time to pay tribute to the victims.
I offer my deepest sympathies to the victims, their families and friends. Stay strong! The whole of Hong Kong is behind you!
