Hong Kong, Shop till Drop and Eat till You Die

Hong Kong, It is a place that you will never get hungry. I love food, I love eating, and Hong Kong is the place to be.

This city is very lively, every square meters you move, you will meet people. There is almost no empty  space, every where tall buildings. It’s like no other Asian cities that I really need to bend my neck 45 degree to be able to see the top of most of the buildings. I found myself that must be very confusing for me if I have the chance to live in Hong Kong and try to get a flat. Not only the fact that I am not able to read this Chinese character but also there are just buildings every where and apartment blocks that looks alike one to another. Thanks to the courtesy of some friends there, every time I visit Hong Kong always local Hongkese around :).
