Nothing scary about number one, that is how all crosswind landings look. You deflect the aileron into the wind to prevent drift and use the rudder to keep going in the right direction and align with the runway, once your low enough you deflect it back and align exactly with the runway. If they didn't do that they would drift away from the runway and/or experience and uncomfortable updraft. Everyone appeared to realize that and did the exact same thing.
Number 2 is old news, that is kai tak airport which has been closed for years now and due to its location winds were very strong often resulting in some funny landings, one China Air 747 ended up in that bay.
