I like to think that Larry David could fill multiple seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm critiquing the lack of social contracts / awareness in Hong Kong. Probably a whole season on lift etiquette alone.
It didn't take too long for some to turn this thread into complaints about HK and HKers
Taiwan and HK are so totally different in many ways, there are things that I really love about Taiwan (people are much more open and friendly, access to nature is good) but in other ways it reminds me of 1980s China with all the concrete slab construction. Really great people though, best place in the world for hitch-hiking, at least in my experience.
HK's size (The goldfish bowl we often refer to it as) also contributes to that in a way that being from Europe most certainly would not.
But at the same, time there's a huge difference between. 'Taiwan is not as good as HK because it doesn't serve milk tea' and 'ah I'll miss milk tea living in Taiwan'.
It bug's the hell out of me when people label balanced observations as 'complaining' (not that I'm saying that you're doing that specifically)
