Chinese Standards in Hong Kong

Today my mother showed me this free Chinese New Year poster (Fai Chun, Spring Couplets) she saw in a local newspaper (Apple Daily, Jan. 23, 2009).

Even though my Chinese is not that good, I too notice the mistake in the poster, which had been distributed throughout Hong Kong.

Are the standards of our young generation that poor? The worst part, is that it demonstrates the lack of pride Editors of Hong Kong newspapers have for their jobs.

  1. For those of us that can’t read Chinese – can you show what it should look like?

    Also, given the topic of this post I have to point out your gramtical error:

    “Has the standards of our young generation that poor.”???

    Did you mean “Are” rather than “Has”?
