How much does she make? Good question. If she “promotes” specific consumer products, it’s a private deal - could be a lot, depending upon what she negotiated. From advert pushing, about $1000 per 100k views I believe. She’s not raking in the dough (I don’t see her doing anything approaching the numbers some “influencers” do) and her motives are probably more based on narcissism than anything else. Still, it’s mostly harmless fluff that amuses her followers, and shouldn’t be taken seriously. She’s no Jackie Cochran nor a Jean Batten but she certainly tries to promote herself like the latter. Perhaps one day she’ll reflect on her contributions and realize how vacuous they were - when she grows up.

Maybe one day there will be a market on social media for grumpy old men who hate their lives and everyone else around them... then PPRuNe will be really raking in the cash

for a lot of people around here they are just bitter and resentful that there’s someone around them who actually enjoys their job and life.

Anybody who gets all wound up over what someone else does online, may have some serious issues that need addressing.

Wonder if this social media butterfly declares her additional income to the taxman in Hong Kong and in the Netherlands

Jeez boys, what’s this got to do with visa renewals in HK? Give the lady a break and back on topic!

Wasn't there supposed to be news from immigration this week?

think they're still experiencing their "technical glitch" applications showing as closed on the online status. so either a glitch or they've refused all renewals and made up some BS story.

Hong Kong Air Cargo staff crunch.

https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/...gtype=homepage

There is no visa issue to fix. HKAC has had more than six months now to recruit some very well qualified ex KA A330 pilots. The GEP is quite clear, employ locals and PR first before working visa renewal.

This clown show is still trying to BS the ImmD by using “training costs” as a convenient excuse. “Years to train” someone on an old and tired A330F - yeah right!

If you’re neither PR nor a HK citizen, then time to Log Off, clock off and off

What about the ex dragon pr holders, surely they should get a job back in Hong Kong before any new visas are issued, right?


or just the locals?

If there is a job available and there are two people available, a local and a visa holder, the job should go to the best person suited for the job.

If there is a job available and and there are unemployed locals with the skills for the job, the company should not be able to attract someone from overseas to fill the job.

If there are visa holders who have a job, but don't get their visa renewed because there are unemployed locals with he same skills, and then forcing the company to replace pilot a with pilot b because they are local, that goes too far for me.

if both visa holders and locals have job, now the company has to make people redundant. The company should make those bisa holder redundant first. Your statement is based on a questionable decision made back in Oct. I know you would argue that dragon and cathay are two company. But don’t forget, there are CX locals being made redundant as well

so are you saying that Cathay, when they decide to close Dragonair, should have sacked cx pilots on a visa and replaced them with locals/pr holders from Dragonair?
