Oc­cupy ATM In the morn­ing, two women are found sleep­ing on news­pa­pers in front of an in­door ATM in She­ung Shui. Next to them are a suit­case and two pairs of shoes they have kicked off. A passerby takes a photo of them and up­loads it to Facebook.

MON 16

Potty Train­ing Out­side a duty-free store in Tsim Sha Tsui, a young boy bends over as his mother cleans his but­tocks. He has just defe­cated on the ground, and it ap­pears that some­one has stepped on his fe­ces. Passersby are shocked, and some stop to take photos of the boy, who looks con­fused. Ne­ti­zens are out­raged: Some won­der whether the Food and En­vi­ron­men­tal Hy­giene Depart­ment should step in.

TUE 17

Mouse At­tack! At around 1pm, a mouse ap­pears at the back of a Yau Ma Tei-bound MTR train. Sev­eral pas­sen­gers run to­wards the front of the train, away from the mouse. A child walks up to the crea­ture out of cu­rios­ity, which seems to alarm it, caus­ing it to turn around and dash to­wards a row of seats. A woman jumps onto a seat, scream­ing. The mouse runs to­wards the front of the train as pas­sen­gers dart out of its way, and then dis­ap­pears. The MTR says an in­spec­tion re­vealed no mice but they have dis­in­fected the train.

WED 18

Bald Move On a pub­lic bus, a bald man is seen shav­ing with an elec­tric ra­zor. He runs the shaver over his head sev­eral times and later works on his chin. A fel­low pas­sen­ger cap­tures this on his smart­phone and up­loads it to YouTube.

One ne­ti­zen says she’d be hor­ri­fied if she were sit­ting be­hind the bald man, and an­other laments, “You know this is Hong Kong be­cause no­body both­ered to tell him to stop.”

FRI 20

He posts a photo of the car to Facebook, de­duc­ing that the noo­dle acts as a bumper to pre­vent dents and scratches from other car doors. A ne­ti­zen sug­gests that the driver should use a black pool noo­dle so it blends better with the car body.
