Superficial thoughts on Hong Kong and Jing...





I must start this post by saying that it is simply not fair to compare Hong Kong and Beijing.

Having said that, please indulge me and let me share a few superficial observations about Hong Kong:

Hong Kong is 21 degrees warmer than Beijing (Celsius)
People in HK were smiling...and for no apparent reason. (radiant faces)
Everyone I met in HK spoke basic English. (No surprise)
Old men dye their hair. (not so good on the root upkeep, however)
People in HK WAIT until people get off the subway before entering.
In HK got a handout for a good cause - to recycle old clothes.
In HK kids were running around, playing and being...kids.
No one spits massive phlegm on the streets of Hong Kong.
Men wear different kinds of belts in HK. (difficult to explain)
People aren't just SHOPPING in GUCCI, they are BUYING GUCCI.
and can someone tell me:
WTF IS an "Administrative" district anyways?

And yes, Beijinger's still go to Hong Kong to shop!

Though, I must admit that Hong Kong felt a bit like Las Vegas? How so? Well, you know how in Vegas it is almost impossible to find your way outside of the casino? And, if you do, there is a conveyor belt taking you to the next casino? Well, Hong Kong's subway system is pretty much designed to take you from shopping malls to more shopping plaza's. Seriously. Too much shopping!!!

Hi there. I am a Hong Kong local and actually there are two points on your list of Homg Kongers that may need to be corrected.

In the subway (MTR) people always try to board before they let you out. you probably were one of the lucky ones who dodged that bullet every single time.

Also people are still spitting on the streets. Even though the fixed penalty for spitting is in effect people still spit.
