Cathay Pacific Asia Miles - CX Amex bonus miles on non-HK on-line bookings

I know CX Amex gives 1 AM per HKD 8 local spend, and per HKD 4 overseas spend. It also gives "Double Asia Miles when you book your Cathay Pacific flights online at www.cathaypacific.com".
If I book an ex-TPE flight on cathay's website which will be charged in TWD, does that mean I get in totality 1 AM per HKD 2 spent ?
Apologies if this is buried in the credit card thread somewhere but that thread really is too long to search thru.

No, it does not. If you read the fine print, the cathaypacific.com promotion is "Applicable only to Cathay Pacific tickets originating from Hong Kong purchased online through www.cathaypacific.com."
So you will get 1 AM / 4 HKD.

Ah, never mind, I found it on CX's website http://www.cathaypacific.com/cx/ffp/cobrand/tnc_amex_en_hk_2010.html.
CX and Amex' websites do contradict each other .. sigh.

The terms on Cathay's site apply; I have only gotten HK$4 / mile for both my Dec 2010 ex-TPE USA trip and for my Aug 2011 ex-TPE USA trip. Cathay's extra bonus would show up directly on your MPC / AM statement and not as bonus miles on your CX-AMEX statement and they've never shown up on mine, but they show up on my husband's ex-HKG flights all the time.
