On Wednesday’s programme, we’re talking about the phenomenon of "lying flat" among young Hong Kongers, after a recent study by the Society for Community Organisation found that nearly one in four young people from low income families here have opted to lie flat, or just do the bare minimum to get by.
But why? Some respondents say they have no hope for the future and others say they are happy with the status quo.
After 9.15am, we’ll talk about Jumbo the floating restaurant that has capsized in the South China Sea, less than a week after being towed away from Aberdeen Harbour.
