You know you’re turning local when…

They’re having a whale of a time over at a popular HK expat forum…here’s some highlights…you know you’re turning into a HK local when…


…when this looks delicious

– you see a long queue and instinctively join it in case you are missing out on something.

– you find yourself repeating ‘Take a rest’ and ‘eat’ pills when sick.

– you hit door close in the elevator before I am in the elevator myself.

You enjoy queues

– you say ‘black colour’

– you (if you are a male) start rolling up your t shirt into a crop top when it gets too hot

– you pretend you are still a little girl acting all cute flashing a “V” sign in front of a camera…despite being an utter bitch the rest of the time

You've never given so much as a dollar to a beggar because they are dirty scum

    Just curious: I’ve seen many bad points about HK. What are the good points for you?

    And here is an idea for your next post:

  16. Chris G says:

    Heres another. You occupy a table for 4 all to yourself at Pacific or Starbuck coffee shops using laptop and study material. If anyone asks if the other 3 seats are available you tell them your friends are on their way even though you arent expecting company and want to spend the next 2 hours on social media.

  17. B says:

    I came upon this site by typing ‘I hate hong kong’ on the search engine because I got no response for ‘breaking out of HK’. Can’t believe someone is more cynical than I am. Nice to meet you.

    I fucking hate this hell hole. I feel totally fucked and get jacked at the fact that there’s nothing I can do or say to change things. Like someone else on this blog already said, the inmates are running the prison.

  19. Keep on truckin old mate

  20. Don’t forget ‘when you see someone drop all their shopping on the floor and you just stand and look at them while they pick it all up again.’ <<<< happened to me, rude people. lol. x

  21. Over worked Teacher says:

    I totally agree with all of this! I cant wait to leave!!!!! So glad to hear its not just me being negative 😀 x

  22. the_travelling_trini says:

    HILARIOUS!!! Absolutely spot on, every single one! Oh, by the way, women blow dry their pubes in the gym too.

  23. Lamboferruccio says:

    You pay your helper extra ($100) to take care of your baby on Sunday, their only day off coz you don’t want to deal with said baby on your only day off.

    You go for a stroll with the family in the mall with your helper intow pushing a stroller with your baby in it while checking FB on your phone.

    You have your helper take your kids to school carrying all their bags coz their too fucking spoilt carry it themselves…

  24. Anonymous says:

    Don’t know how many more of these can be mustarded-up, but here are some I thought of in no time at all…

    • you run in fear of your life at the sight of a mosquito or other small insect
    • every time you leave your flat, you must announce it to your neighbours by slamming your door shouting in the corridor
    • you take pleasure in seeing other people miserable (after all, better them than you)
    • you do stupid shit that you would get owned for in other cities/countries
    • you renovate your flat with a fucking a jackhammer
    • you hire an Indonesian maid because you can pay her less than a Filipino maid
    • you cut your fingernails and toenails on public transport
    • you drive as part of your profession and still haven’t figured out how to slow down when going around a fucking turn
    • you have a mountain bike and a set of golf clubs in your flat, but have never been mountain bike riding or golfing in your entire life
    • you almost get hit by a car three times a day because you’re too busy looking down at your smart phone
    • you don’t move your body and let other people sit next to you on public transport
    • you (and your whole fucking family) don’t realize how lucky you truly are and take everything and everyone for granted
    • you think you’re better than others because you have more money than them
    • you’re so ignorant that you’re happy (ignorance is truly bliss for you)
    • you’re a fucking COWARD!

    Like I said a few posts up, this place if a fucking living hell. I’m not a religious person, but I pray every day for a better life for my wife and I. I’m at a point in my life where I just hope to get through my day without being fucked with. Quite sad indeed!

  25. Lamboferruccio says:

    You act like you can’t speak English when around foreigners especially when questioned by one yet turn to your kids and speak to them in English since they speak more English than Canto coz they spend more time with your maid who actually speaks better English than you do who is probably more educated than you are too…

  26. mushroomface says:

    This is an interesting site.

    My ethnicity is Chinese. I have visited HK once, when I was a young one and came across this site when I was googling questions about China & HK. There seems to be hatred between them and I was wondering why. Your blog is similar to the views of Hong Konger’s about ‘Mainlanders’ (from what I’ve read).

    This comment made me chuckle “your favourite animal is pork, chicken, fish and beef.” haha so true with Chinese and their food.

    This is an interesting insight into what HK society is like – and the agreement of people living there (from the comments you have received).

  27. Lamboferruccio says:

    Mushroomface it’s interesting that Hong Kongers feel the same about mainlanders as westerners feel about them, coming from NY myself I have many Asian American friends some of whom are Chinese and they are not like Honkies so this is not in anyway against all Chinese people just Hong Kong people, mainlanders are another story, LOL!

  28. Anonymous says:

    Hong Kongers may be a step up from Mainlanders, but that’s not saying a whole lot.

    Facts are facts! No matter where you live or travel in the world, Chinese people take the piss. I’m truly baffled at the way they treat people (including each other). I wish someone could enlighten me without bring up that past and telling me what hard lives they’ve had. All I hear are tons of excuses…bla bla bla!

    Don’t mean to be so cynical of the Chinese people, but there’s no denying that their behavior is way out of order, and that they are some of the most arrogant, ignorant and mean-hearted people around.

    Of course, this does not apply to everyone. There are nice people, but they are few and far between.

  29. Anonymous says:

    My parents are from Hong Kong. If there your views on HK people then they are your views. Don’t worry, Lambo I’m not offended. I have seen people like this. Although I say the way you are brought up is a big influence, country for example.

    However anonymous to say ‘No matter where you live or travel in the world, Chinese people take the piss’ that is a very broad spectrum for you to generalise. In every race/culture you are bound to get arseholes and decent people.

  30. Anonymous says:

    I try my best not to generalise. I’m simply pointing out that when I’m around (groups of) Chinese people, whether in Hong Kong, the mainland or some other part of the world, I have the same bad experience. An experience filled with rude, loud, obnoxious, uncouth, and just outright disgusting behaviour. This is not me generalising, this is what I see and hear with my own two eyes and ears on a daily basis.

    To be fair, I also said – ‘Of course, this does not apply to everyone. There are nice people, but they are few and far between.

    I’m not going to debate you or anyone else on the blog, and I certainly don’t want to offend anyone. I’m just simply stating how I feel in the most honest way I know how, and on a forum that was set-up for this exact purpose. If you and others think Hong Kong and Chinese people are fine and dandy, I am truly happy for you.

  31. mushroomface says:

    Ah yes so you did. My phone didn’t show the last bit of your message anonymous!

    Don’t worry I’m not arguing – everyone is entitled to their own opinion! The other message was from me but I forgot to sign in.

  32. Mike says:

    I actually like living in Hong Kong– very much– and I find much of this list entirely accurate. What’s up with the escalator behavior? And the way people will walk directly into your path if they think it will save them 1 second? NB, that depends on the assumption that I will stop on a dime in order to avoid a collision, but that’s a service I’ve long ago stopped providing (my new assumption is that a person stepping directly into the path of a 200+ pound man doesn’t really expect to avoid a collision but rather hopes for it… And I always oblige).

  33. Clockatron says:

    You know you’re local when you find yourself inside multiple Asian girls in Soloas on a Friday night! BOOOOOOM.

    I came across this when I googled HK sucks…. As a HKer I find this post “interesting” — just to play the part — and sadly, many of the remarks are not groundless. I wish they were but they are not. At least you have a home to go back to. No matter what the government says, this is a bleeding dump that’s what it is, and it feels ridiculous when the government pile on it saying HK is a cosmopolitan city.

    But then again, HK is not the worst there is… About the racist bit, it exists everywhere. The first day I spent in Sydney I got two local chaps giving me the finger because I didn’t know the way to the nearest Thai restaurant, and I got this guy telling me a joke about why Chinese women (or gooks something like that) are all slant eyed. That’s because Chinese men have small dicks and they’ll have to look really hard to find them.

    Oh if I may join in and rant a bit, here’s what I think:

    You turn local when you think working overtime is normal and holidays are meant for you to recover and go back to the torment.

  35. Anonymous says:

    you realize you turn local when you realize you are slowing transforming into a mega-ass (sounds like megatron in the Transformer).

  36. Hanna says:

    I am a solo female traveller from the UK and have been to to HK several times. Im not sure if i had my rose tinted glasses on at first but i have become so sick of the rudeness and bad manners.

    On my most recent trip i have been pushed and shunted out the way. Ignored in shops and at restaurants. I have had cigarette smoke blown in my face, grown men rush in front of me for a seat on the mtr, and deliberatley blocked from walking down the escalators as again someone didnt want me walking in front of or pass them.

    Bizarrely i went on a tour to a local food market in the new territories up near the china border. I felt i was spoken to and treated more like an actual person there than the city?!

  37. Andy says:

    Not all Hongkongers are mean, selfish, arrogant, horrible, rude and (insert further negative adjectives here), but the problem is… a lot are.

    I came here with an open mind trying to see the best, as I do everywhere. Yet as hard as I try, there are always countless daily situations to tell me otherwise.

    Nothing surprises me now in Hong Kong. And to the locals telling us to go home, I’ll ask you this… are you actually denying that this shit happens? I don’t think anyone can say it doesn’t. No where is free of rude people but it’s all about how frequently you encounter them. In Tokyo it’s about once-twice a week, in London, New York, Sydney, once-twice a day. In Hong Kong it’s once-twice every 15 minutes. Can you really say otherwise?

    And it’s not anti-Chinese either. I’ve spent time in Taiwan and generally find the people quite nice. Even PARTS of the mainland are better.

  38. Chris G says:

    Lots of reasons for this.
    Dog eat dog work environment
    The principle of “saving face” in any encounters with people
    Rampant consumerism (buying the latest shit just to show off) turned into something to aspire to
    Kids completely alienated from their parents
    Inept government
    The list could go on and on

  40. CY Turtle says:

    -You refuse to lift your head when you walk because you MUST respond to a Whatsapp message

    -You would rather live the rest of your life with crooked snaggle teeth than get braces

    -You have a pram/stroller for your dog, but not your children

    -You’ve carried your cat/dog with you to a restaurant

    -You are totally incapable of walking in a straight line

    -You must stop and stare at every property agencies ads, even though you couldn’t afford a flat here with 10 life savings

    -You think its acceptable to burn red paper inside/outside of a building because your dead relatives need it to buy chips and toilet paper in the after life

    -You go to nature to escape the people and don’t realize that everyone else else in the city is there for the exact same reason

    -The only activity you do with friends is eat and get drunk

    -You are 30+ years old and live with your parents. And you see nothing wrong with it

    -You can name all of the Chinese dynasties, but not a single country in South America

    -You were unable to secure a good job in life because you didn’t prepare will enough for your primary school entrance exam

    -You can go to Causeway Bay on a Sunday and not want to murder multiple people

    -You spend more time travelling to word than you do sleeping

    -It’s your dream to live in Australia for 6 months and pick strawberries

    -You go hiking on paved “trails”

    -You spend a day at the beach and don’t touch the water because it is dirty

  41. Ronnie Poo says:

    I think Andy really sums it up well. For those of you who haven’t yet lived here more than a couple years… think seriously about staying any longer. You may, like me, be sacrificing your health due to the constant stress, frustration, and anger you may experience on a daily basis. If money is the only reason, take it from me, it’s just not worth your health. I’ve finally made arrangements to leave after 7+ years and I feel much lighter and happier knowing there is a light at the end of this tunnel.

  42. Chris G says:

    Being unable to escape to natural surroundings is a good point too. Very bad for your mental health. Due to the high population its very difficult to go anywhere where there are no other people. Even if you walk up to the summits of hill tops you have views of apartment blocks. I can understand the concrete hiking paths if there was a danger of a landslide from the wet season but for some reason the concrete gets laid in places where there is no danger at all. Then you see the locals walking round dressed up as if they are on an expedition up K2.

    I’m a Hong Kong citizen myself. This is what I find to be very true. Especially that human wall shit – but at the same time I find that a majority of western people also do most of of what your list states. So, not necessarily a ‘Hong Kong’ thing.
    We live in the country part of HK, by the seaside. However, over in the more populated areas (Central, TST, etc.), I find what you say to be true. To be honest, I am quite disappointed in how the majority is acting, and I am disgusted by their behaviour. Though I’d be happy if you were more positive about HK, that would just defeat the purpose of your blog. You listed almost all the stereotypes outsiders have of this city, and I found it interesting to see what everybody thought.

    Being a hong longer myself, I’ve been fucked up for so many years to the point that when I’m being fucked up, I thought it was myself being not tolerate enough to people.
    I am 17 and I got treated like crap for countless times. Like when I’m in highschool, I got teased by the workers in the office. They never speak in a nice way, they treat you like crap and look at you in the way as if you are the most disgusting people in the world. Ironically, when I told my bad experience to my teacher, they said Sth like, you don’t expect people to be kind to you, it’s your problem if you can’t stand bad attitudes. Wtf, so I have to expected being scolded every time? Fucking ungrateful Hong Kong people.

    I Agree with most of the things you’ve mentioned. However, a lot of the comments u had such as “HK people don’t know any other kind of sausages other than hotdogs”/ “you’re completely and utterly hoodwinked by Jesus”/ “you think the food in Cafe de Coral is western food” etc. just showed how white washed you are, honestly, if u’ve been to other Asian countries,like Japan things like these are pretty common, and i dont hear people complain about Japs like that (obviously they are a lot more popular among white people compared to Chinese in general). Just because your mom and dad have enough money to give u an education in the US/ UK/ Canada does not mean that u can talk down on Hong Kong people like a white dude. I know the locals are inferior and stupid, but you yourself is also an ignorant, egotistic, non-white motherfucker, chinks with slanted eyes.

    Hey, Anonymous! What’s the point that Hong kong is white dude? Hong kong is just comfort woman of UK.

  54. End of Hk says:

    Oh, I don’t know that White dude say” lay hao, lame hao?” Filipino whores in now are Cantonese whores in past.

  55. End of Hk says:

    The people who can understand Hong kongers are maybe people live in Shenzhen and Gangzhou, etc. Japanese can’t understand Hong kongers. Also Filipino can’t understand Hong kongers. Chinese and British people too. As a British subject, Hong kong is one of a lot of colonies in past. Also don’t know reason why British dudes give so lots of computers to Honkers.

    Anonymous,no people balme Japan in here except you. It also means you come from a Asian nation invaded by Japan. Oh, yes! Hong kong people also don’t like Japan very much. To say positive about it, include to Singapore this JHS nations have a lot of common points with UK and always wanna be British dudes. Japan was also a British dude 100 years ago. But don’t know reason why they been so childish in many parts such as Manga. People in Singapore are more polite than Hong kongers.

    End_of_Hk, while we all appreciate the passion and liveliness that you bring to this conversation, I regret to inform you that your English language skills are so lacking that we haven’t the slightest clue what you are trying to say. Perhaps you should just stick to writing in Chinese and we’ll stand more of a chance of deciphering you psychobabble.

  69. End of Hk says:

    Let’s extend I said. Can’t understand the Hong kong people always say negative words and behave like such pathetic losers. Inferiority complex is usual in their life. The”Moron TV”is famous channel in Hong kong during the British domination.

  70. End of Hk says:

    First of all, I wanna write a comment without the hack and crack of Anonymous. Turn to main subject, go on talking about HK suck. Hong kong people don’t use logographs while they speaking English. Logograph is important point of both English and Chinese. Hong kong society is so unsanitaional. The cue”UK and HK” is same as a toilet in the kitchen.

  71. Fanny Poon says:

    Sorry, you still don’t make any fucking sense. What language do you speak natively on your home planet?

  72. End of Hk says:

    Fanny poon, Just guess where I come from by yourself. Your true name is may be Anonymous. But may be my home planet is same to your country.

  73. End of HK says:

    Hong kong people are ignorant enough for dominated by UK. And they are too stupid to understand UK. That’s all I can say.

    -You refuse to lift your head when you walk because you MUST respond to a Whatsapp message
    As if anywhere else is any better. It’s not a Hong Kong problem, It’s a global problem that’s spreading through the technological community.

    -You would rather live the rest of your life with crooked snaggle teeth than get braces
    I’m sorry that we have a right to choose what do do with our own bodies.

    -You have a pram/stroller for your dog, but not your children
    Ever considered that we do?

    -You’ve carried your cat/dog with you to a restaurant
    Hong Kong is cold, both in heart and in mouth. Carry it in, carry it out. Doesn’t work? A good kick in the ass for the owner would do the trick. Look around you, these things do happen.

    -You are totally incapable of walking in a straight line.
    Cute. Try not to bump into the various stalls that are blocking the streets and the crowded conditions of the streets while you walk in a 180 degree lines, alright, sweetie?

    -You must stop and stare at every property agencies ads, even though you couldn’t afford a flat here with 10 life SAVINGS
    I’m soooooo sorry that some of us cannot afford things and would rather look at the prices, so we may be able to be informed on the latest economy surrounding property.

    -You think its acceptable to burn red paper inside/outside of a building because your dead relatives need it to buy CHIPS and toilet paper in the after life
    Religious fucking reasons, dumb arse.

    -You go to nature to escape the people and don’t realize that everyone else else in the city is there for the exact same reason
    So terribly sorry for enjoying nature.

    -The only activity you do with friends is eat and get drunk
    Okay, I’ll put that on my list, right under “applicable to every single fucking country.”

    -You are 30+ years old and live with your parents. And you see nothing wrong with it
    Chinese culture states that children are the take care of their parents. Many Chinese people live with their parents in order to provide for them in old age.

    -You can name all of the Chinese dynasties, but not a single country in South America
    You try. *Ahem* miss teen USA, *Ahem* 2007, *Ahem* Miss south Carolina *Ahem* map question.

    -You were unable to secure a good job in life because you didn’t prepare will enough for your primary school entrance exam
    You want me to make a note under “Every single fucking country ever” again? Studies are a serious part of Chinese culture.

    -You can go to Causeway Bay on a Sunday and not want to murder multiple people
    Sorry that we have more tolerant lifestyle choices.

    -You spend more time TRAVELLING to word than you do sleeping
    How specific it is to be able to gossip more than sleeping. I’m totally sure that no other ethnicity does this.
    -It’s your dream to live in Australia for 6 months and pick strawberries
    Wonderful idea, right after securing a job, raising families, supporting parents in old age, and you know, actually having OTHER dreams.
    -You go hiking on paved “trails”
    They’re there because we have hikers.

    -You spend a day at the beach and don’t touch the water because it is dirty
    Stop looking at your computer, pick yourself up, wear your fucking sandals and take a look at the water during summer.

    The ultimate telltale sign of when you’re turning HK? When you offer up kneejerk defenses for HK bullshit behavior. You are a local with a slightly better grasp of written English than your compatriots. Bully for you wannabe Brit!

    Wow, that’s a heated up thread right here…

    let me give my 10 cents as a driver in Hong Kong.

    You know when you’re turning local when you…

    – Never use your indicator.
    – Indicate right when you’re turning left.
    – Indicate left when you’re turning right.
    – Keep indicating on a highway for several kilometers and never change lane.
    – Don’t have a clue about the rules of a roundabaout and think you can turn right or left from any bloody lane (without indicating, of course).
    – Drive at night with every damn head lamp in your car on (headlights, foglights, pimplights, shitlights… bloody everything on despite the fact that HK streets and highways are all well lit up and there’s hardly any fog).
    – Drive at night with full beam on and don’t give a shit whether you may be dazzling other drivers.
    – Drive like an absolute idiot, or an absolute maniac.
    – Don’t give way to anybody (including pedestrians).
    – Slow down for no apparent reason, blocking every body else behind you.
    – Park 20 meters from the curb.
    – Park in diagonal to the curb.
    – Park with one or both tyres on the curb.
    – Park anywhere, anytime in any situation, even if you are going to block someone else. Who gives a fuck, right?
    – Will accelerate the car to tailgate the car in front should you see somebody indicating to change to the lane you’re on and block their way. Why should I give you a few meters of space in front of my car… I AM ALWAYS FIRST!!! This is particular of truck, van and taxi drivers. They are such cordial “professional” drivers, aren’t they?
    – Drive a container lorry at 100 Km/h in Tuen Mun Highway (speed limit 70/80 Km/h) and race other cars with a huge 10 – 20 Ton lorry. (I have actually seen a container lorry taking a sharp bend in Tuen Mun Highway doing over 100 Km/h and the container tipping to the side as he took that bend – HOLY SHIT!!!!).
    – Drive while talking on the mobile phone. (Well, people do it in many countries… although it is illegal).
    – Drive while texting on the phone. (Only absolute cunts will do it…)
    – Drive while BROWSING FACEBOOK! (I swear to God I have never seen people doing this nowhere else! – I saw a few people actually doing this in HK with my own eyes, in shock, horror and disbelief).

    There’s more, but these are the most obvious ones.

    Just to add to my previous post on driving in HK, I must add that some of the worst offenders in almost every single mindless shit you see when drving in HK are the so called “professional drivers”, taxi, van and minibus drivers. They are simply appalling drivers. To put it plain and simple, driving in HK is on a good day like combat training, and on a bad day your worst nightmare. HK people drive like a bunch of cockroaches which have been doused with pesticide (some will make a mad dash, others will stop and contemplate the meaning of life). The traffic layout is pathetic and the road markings were planed by utter cunts. Driving in HK tells you a great deal about the Turd of the Orient and how competent, generous, sensible and clever their inhabitants are.

    First of all, this blog is about the dreadful experiences that we expats endure in this shithole of yours. Whether you “Are in agreeing” or not, like you shitheads say, is completely irrelevant to us. I am sick and tired of this, you, and your shitty culture, under which you’re always ready to excuse yourselves and shelter your abhorrent attitudes and behaviour. AND YET, you’re all too ready, and desperate, to take advantage of OUR education system by means of attaining a half-arsed degree in USA or UK (mostly) because you in fact cannot have real access to serious research and quality education in this wasteland of your culture.

    I am married to a HK chinese woman (obviously not an idiot like you) and know all too well the ridiculous hypocrisy which underlines your family dissimulation, within the context of your monolithic and morass culture.

  87. IndonesianInHongKong says:

    Just would like to add a few more to the list:
    – you think ALL Indonesian women (or other South-East Asian looking women) are whores and/or domestic workers. If an Indonesian woman says she’s a lawyer or anything else then she must be either delusional, lying, or both.
    – you think ALL white people are great English teachers. In your simple mind, there is NO WAY non-white people can be qualified to teach English (“my son’s English teacher is a drug addict but who cares??!!! he’s white and he’s got British accent!!!”)
    – you don’t say “sorry” or “excuse me” when somebody blocks your way. Instead you will just get upset and push yourself against that person. Not your fault they can’t read your mind!!!
