Hello HK Team,

The Philippine chapter has not provided an official endorsement (since most are neutral or split) . But everybody agrees that no one is opposing your bid. We made an informal survey on Facebook.

My personal preference is YES for Hong Kong since we could avail the air promos of Air Asia, Cebu Pacific and get cheap accommodations as well.

The close proximity would be an advantage for our chapter.

Halo all 

As you all know that HK is among the finalists of the Wikimania 2013 bid with London

However, as the original announcement date already passed,
and there still no clue will be come out any day soon

so I am not sure more time will benefit the London Bid, as sort of "buy-time" affect

We, HK bidding will try to use this time to facilitate as much as possible to secure the bid

however, I also need your help to express the idea that there will be 6 years
that no single Wikimania in Asia-Pacific proper in 2013

So I wonder if you can personally tweet, facebook status about this matter,
and express your support to our bid.
(share our bidding page as well http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimania_2013_bids/Hong_Kong )

(of course if any official or community account can express such support will be even better
Chapter's Letter of support is also welcomed)

please feel free to express your opinion on this
even you dislike this idea :)
