From a Filipino-Chinese, to the HK People out there

I have had the chance to work in HK for 6 months, and I have fallen in love with how the country is so international, and everyone is so friendly there that you can easily strike up a conversation with just about anyone. I have made some good friends there, and I will never forget those 6 months. I stand with you, yet despite me not being able to do anything as a young man.

I have parents who share the sentiments of the China government, and sometimes it's not easy to voice out my sentiments in the family. I can see some of them sharing heavily biased news from China, and to think that some of them would talk about it boldly with just that side of the story.

While I support HK to stay as it is, I can't help but wonder on the back of my mind that it's just a ticking time bomb before your country's autonomy will be handed back to China. What will be your plan then? Do you have an exit strategy of sorts? Or will you stay in Hong Kong?

To add to that, it doesn't make any sense.

Why drop it dead center in China, where it's a crucial transportation hub to get around tier-1 cities? Also impirtant for the BRI?

Not to mention, why drop it in CNY? The most Chinese event ever.

If this is a bioweapon, they would have done this in a far-flung area, and they would spread it discreetly. This is just stupid.

Hello, I would like to ask if you would know what would change by 2047 for HK, compared to what they have for now as a country?
