    Question Chinese Americans in HK

    I was wondering if there is a group (formal or informal) for Chinese Americans (ABC or non-ABC) living in HK that meets regularly? I would be interested.

    AFAIK, there is a group of ABC (American Born Chinese), a BBC (British), a SBC (Singapore) they all meet once a month but I have lost touch with most of them. The ABC group was very formal and very business oriented. ABC and BBC were meeting in the Ritz Carlton in the old days.

    Yes there are lots. They fall into two groups: those for whom being Chinese-American defines their being and makes them feel they are somehow superior to everyone else in HK (we just avoid and laugh at this mob), and a smaller contingent who do their best to get along with everyone else and therefore don't define themselves in any particular way (this group mixes well with everyone else).

    here too

    Hi guys,

    Just moved to HK from New York in April. It has not been a priority for me to define myself by skin (or anything), but yes I'm Chinese and lived in the States for years.

    I just want to meet some laidback people to kick it - a drink after work, weekend brunches, etc. Not very business-oriented.

    BTW If anyone happens to know of a place we can watch baseball, please let me know!!! I'm a Yankees and Padres fan, but I'd settle to watch any game!

    Me too!

    I'm "half" ABC as well. Born and raised in HK for the first 15 years of my life. Then moved to live and study in NYC and Washington DC. I'm now in Xi'an doing archaeological work but I will be back in HK every now and then. I'm fluent in English, Cantonese, Mandarin and Arabic (I got my Masters in Arabic). Hope you guys don't discriminate because I'm not the rich investment banker type I'm just looking to expand my social circle and someone to hang out with while in HK! I would love to meet people from all walks of life and nationalities, not just ABCs.
