Hi there George. As a rule of thumb, the practice of turning nouns into verbs, especially when there is a perfectly good verb already available, is regarded by speakers of other varieties of English as a North American characteristic.
Thank you Richard, but since I am no expert in UK English, much less in the HK variety, I wanted to make sure it is actually an error and not some little linguistic quirk I am not aware of. It does nto surprise me in the least to find it in Google, Brigitte, but I trust you guys more than I trust Mr. Google.
