A proposal to build a temporarily frontier shopping mall in Fu Tei Au has been submitted to Town Planning Board by indigenous people, with budget of 50 million dollars. The construction area is about 30,000 square metres. It will be running for three years.
The shopping mall will be located at Lo Wu Station Road, inside a closed area near Lo Wu Station. The building size is around 19,300 square metres and has two floors. Its operating time is 10 am to 8 pm. One of the proposers said the shopping mall will not disturb people because the proposed area is uncultivated and there is no residents nearby.
This is the third shopping malls proposed by the axis of indigenous, landlords, and pro-Peking politicians, after Nam Sang Wai and San Tin / Lok Ma Chau.
Comments can be made to Town Planning Board by 5th June at http://www.info.gov.hk/tpb/tc/plan_application/A_NE-FTA_152.html

Today (2015/05/14) the owner of an Internet Cafe in Sheung Shui has posted this notices on a facebook group “North District 北區”. It says:
DIPLOMACY BEFORE RESORTING TO WAR
People lacking civic virtue or their humanoid pets have been urinating and defecating in the back alley of our shop recently. This severely affects public hygiene. Because the incompetent government keeps passing the buck, if our company finds that the above situation appears again, we will install an automatic sprinkler washing system at our backdoor. Whoever wants to have the system removed will have to pay at least $3000 installation and removal fees.
It also receives attention from Passion Times.

Ng Tung River is a nice place for cycling and fishing. It is located in Northeast New Territories. A few days ago the Town Planning Board has passed the two Northeast New Territories Outline Development Plans for Fanling North and Kwu Tung North without any modification. People believe that the natural scene will be erased by this mega development project.
