SAT 10 Getting Wrig­gly With It A man opens a box of as­sorted sushi he had pur­chased from a su­per­mar­ket in Tsuen Wan—only to dis­cover white worms wrig­gling on the sur­face of some raw tuna. He re­ports the in­ci­dent to the Food and En­vi­ron­men­tal Hy­giene Depart­ment, who take the sushi away for test­ing.

SUN 11 Un­lucky Strike A man falls onto an awning af­ter jump­ing from a multi-story carpark in Yau Ma Tei. Bounc­ing off the awning, his body strikes a se­cu­rity guard. Po­lice and paramedics rush the pair to hos­pi­tal, where the man is pro­nounced dead. The se­cu­rity guard is be­ing treated for se­ri­ous in­juries. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der­way.

MON 12 Fake It ‘Til You Make It A photo goes vi­ral: It shows a car wrapped en­tirely in red pa­per, its grill and head­lights out­lined with black marker— giv­ing it an eerie re­sem­blance to a pa­per of­fer­ing for the dead. Ne­ti­zens com­ment on how im­pres­sive the car looks, spec­u­lat­ing that the car’s owner would prob­a­bly like an of­fer­ing of this sort in the af­ter­life.

TUE 13 Lu­nar Ef­fect It’s just prior to MidAu­tumn Fes­ti­val, and res­i­dents form up out­side a bak­ery to re­deem coupons for moon­cakes. One man, over­come with fes­tive good cheer, jumps the queue, and an al­ter­ca­tion en­sues, with sev­eral peo­ple trad­ing blows, knock­ing the queue­jumper to the ground. Bak­ery staff call the po­lice, but the crowd dis­perses be­fore of­fi­cers ar­rive.

WED 14 Ori­gin of the Fe­ces An­other vi­ral photo: A 64-year-old woman is leav­ing a KFC restau­rant in Wan Chai when she slips and lands on her pos­te­rior. She ini­tially as­sumes she slipped in some ice cream, but vis­ual and ol­fac­tory ev­i­dence sug­gests the sub­stance on her thigh and all over the floor is ex­cre­ment. She calls the po­lice and is taken to hos­pi­tal for tests. The KFC branch man­ager says that de­spite comb­ing sur­veil­lance footage, they have not been able to iden­tify the source of the ghastly de­posit.

THU 15 Dog Day Af­ter­noon A 71-year-old woman breaks into a dog breeder’s ken­nels in She­ung Shui and at­tacks the an­i­mals with a knife, killing four and wound­ing six oth­ers. The woman is ar­rested at the scene. The ken­nel owner tells me­dia that the at­tacker is a dis­tant rel­a­tive with a long-held griev­ance and a his­tory of an­i­mal abuse.

FRI 16 Bad Night’s Sleep Two foot masseurs spend the night at their work­place in Yau Ma Tei af­ter hot­pot and drinks. At around 6am, one of them wakes the other, who flies into a frenzy, pick­ing up a knife and caus­ing mul­ti­ple in­juries to his col­league’s neck, waist and arms. The in­jured man tries to flee the shop but col­lapses. Passersby call po­lice, who catch the sus­pect at­tempt­ing to re­move blood­stains from his clothes in a nearby pub­lic re­stroom. The in­jured man is hos­pi­tal­ized and an in­ves­ti­ga­tion is un­der­way.
