    I'm a british born chinese. I am able to speak cantonese and english. But I can not read or write chinese.
    Are there any jobs which I can apply for besides from teaching english?

    Well yes, there are probably loads but it's hard to suggest where to start without any information as to your background and experience.

    There are loads. However I’d say it’s hard to get new graduate roles without Chinese as competition is fierce

    What is your preferred career? That will help people tell you if there are jobs here in it not requiring Chinese. Your best option is likely to get some years’ experience in your chosen field elsewhere before trying to move to HK.

    know many overseas Chinese here that can't read Chinese, they all work in F and B, seems easy to get those jobs in places like Central and Wan Chai, but long working hours. Better to just teach English

    Living in HK on the wages of a bartender? Yikes! . . . well, at least you can get cheap/free drinks.
