Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Hong Kong is one of the two administrative regions that exist in China. It is located in the East Asia area, the territory is surrounded by the South China Sea in the south and by mainland China in the north.

    What happens in Hong Kong are the demonstrations that there are plans that would allow the delivery of Hong Kong to mainland China, due to that the protesters broke in and destroyed the parliament building.

    The majority of the population of Hong Kong does not feel like part of the Chinese population. Surveys from the University of Hong Kong show that most people show themselves as "Hong Kong residents", 11% of the population would be called Chinese and 71% say they do not feel proud of being Chinese citizens.

    In my opinion, I believe that the citizen of Hong Kong should be heard since he is part of the municipality and also has the right to opinion and the right to vote. I think you should do some voting to see what is done at the end.
