Citizen Lam's midnight hunt

Central Station | 23 Jan 2017

After moving out of the chief secretary's official residence at The Peak on Saturday, Chief Executive hopeful Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor found herself in a minor quandary - lack of toilet paper at the Wan Chai apartment hotel where she moved in.

Without any aides to assist her as she's been accustomed to, she had to attend to that chore by herself.

"At midnight I found that there was no toilet paper there. I went to a convenience store to buy it, but I found there was also none there, so I had to take a taxi and went back to the CS official residence."

She admitted she was still getting accustomed to the change in her status and being Citizen Lam again.

Unable to resolve the toilet paper challenge quickly, Citizen Lam was teased by some netizens who said: "If you can't buy toilet paper, you may buy tissue paper instead."

She also became the butt of pleasant teasing for her clumsiness in using the Octopus card to take the MTR when she paid a visit to citizens on Saturday.
