    Amid a week-long strike by Hong Kong’s waste paper exporters, an 89-year-old grandmother, who has collected used cardboard in Causeway Bay for years, continued with her daily “job” on Saturday as she tried to make ends meet despite a price slump.

    The elderly cardboard collector, who calls herself “por por” (Cantonese for “granny”), said she had to help make a living by selling what she picked up from shops in the tourist district. She lives with her son in a subdivided flat that they rent for HK$6,000 a month.

    Resting outside a noodle shop with three boxes of cardboard piled about as high as her head, the hunchbacked old woman said she was not discouraged by the drop in recycled cardboard prices.

    Hong Kong’s Ocean Park has closed its Halloween-themed haunted house after a 21-year-old man died inside it.

    Police received the alert from the amusement park at 2.06pm Saturday and confirmed a man surnamed Cheung had been certified dead at Ruttonjee Hospital. “Under such circumstances, shouldn’t an area closed to guests simply be locked or equipped with automatic lighting?” the barrister asked. Li said medics at the park had administered first aid to Cheung and called an ambulance as soon as they found him.

    The park and Swire Group offered their “deepest condolences” to the victim and his family. Li added that the needs of Cheung’s family would be appropriately addressed. The death marked the first fatal accident at the attraction since it was introduced in 2001. Au-yeung said the case was under investigation. The park has closed the attraction to facilitate an investigation into the incident by the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department.

    The department believed Cheung was hit by “moving parts of the slide” in an area normally closed off to visitors and that the accident did not involve mechanical failure. The slide, measuring 4.5 metres long and 2.5 metres high, was approved by the department on Thursday after passing a comprehensive examination by independent inspectors, it added. The park is not allowed to reopen the attraction until the department lifts its suspension order. The park’s Halloween festival is open to the public from October 5.

    Kate Tsui, Ellen Joyce Loo, Janet Ma and her daughter, Kayla Wong attended "The EcoChic Design Award 2017" final competition today. Kate wore a revealing dress to attend this function.

    Kate expressed she has been studying a 2 years Master degree course in psychology lately. Kate, the winner of 2014 Miss Hong Kong beauty pageant said she was not aware of the criticisms about 2017 Miss Hong Kong Juliette Louie. Kate emphasized  that she is not qualified to counsel her junior: "I need to fix myself first. I don't have a clue how to handle criticisms as I am busy studying my psychology course. I have mood swings and get happy and sad easily. It took me a few years to adjust myself to the show biz initially. I had so much pressure that and my face looked swollen due to that stress."

    . Professor Khaw Kim-sun, 52, was picked up when officers raided his home in Tai Tung Tsuen in Ma On Shan on Monday morning.

    A solemn Khaw appeared in Sha Tin magistrates court on Monday afternoon in a white striped button down shirt, with his hands held behind his back, as his charges were read to him. When asked by the court if he understood the charges laid against him, he nodded and said yes in reply. Khaw, who is being remanded in custody, is represented by barrister Ronny Leung Yiu-wai. Khaw is an associate professor at Chinese University’s department of anaesthesia and intensive care who also works at the senior medical officer at Prince of Wales Hospital in Sha Tin, police said.

    Sammi Cheng was invited as guest in Hacken Lee's concert last night. In fact, back in 1991 after the two filmed "A Life of his Own" series, the two became good friends. Hacken subsequently invited Sammi to his concert as guest. Sammi appeared on stage wearing a blue outfit with a long blue wig. It looked amusing when she stood beside Hacken who wore a red outfit. She said: "It is troublesome to be your guest and I have to choose such colour. I am supposed to choose yellow colour but afraid of resembling a banana. Hence, I become a can of frizzy drink now."

    Sammi admitted that she is closer to Hacken's wife Emily Lo. Hacken revealed that she seldom watched her concert. He said: "Everytime you held your concert, she was  always pregnant. I need to make preparation in advance when you hold your next concert." Sammi asked him: "Are you sure? You are nearly 50 years old and please train more as you are too thin." They then sang "Love For Faithful" together while Hacken acted as a rapper.
