funny I just bought a dolce winter coat a few days ago, from the one at pacific place. But I still get tons of services from both the TST one and this one.

they don't discriminate against hongers and treat mainlanders better, they just discriminate against dumb looking poor people (same with Hermes, Prada, CSS and all those watch shops really). Not a lot of people can afford $10,000+ HKD jackets.

if it came off as bragging, then I don't think you can go anywhere far in life carrying that attitude.

And you are a retard if you think 10k hkd is nothing here. A lot of graduates here (like with HKIE qualifications) can barely make over 10k hkd or 1.2k cad here.

The security guard for D&G said "You're not allowed to take pictures.....except if you are from China" That sent hongers over the edge and it resulted in this.

In (my) serious note though, this Christmas season in HK has been terrible if you wanted to do normal shopping. In that mall that D&G belongs to(in Harbour City TST), it virtually became China the entire holiday season and its becomes comical how hard it is to get around and look at things without a FOB bumping you/screaming loud/climbing over you for stuff/standing in the middle of the path. To make things worse, the service industry in HK caters to the biggest buyer and neglects all sorts of manners.

I went to shop for shoes in TST, and in most places you don't get greeted and if you do you're greeted in Mandarin. But its not "Ni Hao", it's "Ke yi ma" (is this ok? But in a "You gonna buy it now?" tone) Fobs have made it so easy on stores that they don't need to sell anymore, ask a clerk anything and he'll look at you like "dude why haven't you bought this yet, why are you asking me stuff?"

One more thing, you're not letting hongers take pictures, you know what that means here? People take a giant DSLR and point it 2 inches from their food for Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner. People take pictures of EVERYTHING here. You're telling them only FOBS can take pictures of a glitsy bright decorated store front of a name brand? This was bound to happen.

Hey, here's an idea.. Why don't you go eff off you stupid entitled piece of s*it?
I guess people like you need to spend their grandparent's pocket money to buy that DG/LV jacket to impress all the crazy Honger girls when it's 28c outside in the dead of winter!

Stupid piece of s*it troll..

no you idiot. How the fuck is that bragging? I know I am not rich because I know a shit load of people richer than me. Its not like I live in a 3000 sqft suite or buying Blancpain and Hublots left and right.

If this were a thread about Agnes b for example, which is much cheaper, I would have replied the same way, and you idiot would have responded differently without all the hate.

Check out the fashion forum, a lot of people spend a lot on clothes such as dolce as well like Jah Gekko, back then when I posted there.

protip: trading in a VW for another VW is not a good use of money

Wait is there even proof that the security said only mainlanders are allowed to take a picture?

If there is no proof it could be some guy throwing a tantrum and just saying that to the media to make some sort of news.

He could just be pissed and started screaming bullshit infront of D&G.

Unless there is full proof I wouldn't buy this story people make news all the time.

Oh wow, thanks for trying to compare me to you, but I don't judge success by what cars people lease with their mommy and daddy's bank account.
Thanks for trying so hard though!
