Miss Hong Kong Becoming Too Normal

Surprisingly, not one of this year's top three Hong Kong beauty queens had a novel or compelling name ... Veronica ... Erin ... Katherine.

Veronica Shiu Pui-sie, a 24-year-old university student, was crowned Miss Hong Kong after winning more than 156,000 votes, far outnumbering the first runner-up, Erin Wong Cheuk-ki (left), 23, who received about 28,000 votes. Second runner-up was law degree graduate Katherine Ho Yim-kuen, 22. Pic Nora Tam.

This contrasts with previous contestants with names like Hyman Chu and Edelweiss Cheung.
Is Hong Kong becoming more prosaic and boring??
Is Hong Kong becoming more conformist and conservative??
Food for thought ...
