I will be going on a trip to Hongkong from September 1 to 8 – that’s next week. Just my luck that the hostage crisis took place last week. Because of the recent activities that happened, I’m now apprehensive to push through with the trip for fear of safety and discrimination.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going through with the travel as this will be my first time to step foot on foreign ground. Like everyone, I am saddened by the result of the hostage negotiation that led to the death of 8 people.
I feel ashamed of myself knowing that we’ve caused this distress to other nationalities. What made me upset were the pictures that were shown of the incident and bystanders who even had the guts to have their shots taken as though the place were a tourist destination.
I still have to pack my bags as I have but 4 days to prepare.
