Pay attention to how they portrayed the local cuisine by filming in at an economically-priced establishment (not saying that lower end is bad) as opposed in an equivalent high end institution such as Fook Lam Moon, a place that existed for local tycoons who succeeded in spite of the British fat cat types that dined at The Peninsula.
Makes you think doesn't it? Architects of White supremacy portray poverty in Asia as a sign of 'grit', 'character', and 'soul', conveniently glossing over the fact that the destitution and hardship only exists as a DIRECT CONSEQUENCE of their brutal and barbaric colonialism. It bewilders and exasperates me when I see the British gloatingly demand their colonial exploitations be seen as 'accomplishments'. I honestly can't think of a more disgustingly evil people. It takes a certain kind of rotten national psyche to celebrate things like this.
Btw, afternoon tea at The Upper House completely destroys The Peninsula's offering.
