I strongly disagree. The instructions are vital for a very small segment of the population.. the ones who will complain that there should have been a label warning ppl not to open and consume the desiccant packet that came with their shoes.
Looks like I missed a massive food debate. Btw, no way someone can factually state that HK has better choice. Sure HK has cheaper food but variety is lacking. Even with regards to 'foreign' food there is just an overdose of Japanese and Italian mostly. Just look at the restaurant choice on Openrice or something. Anything 'foreign' also tends to be pricey. On the other hand, here in London, lots more variety and not necessarily much more expensive. Maybe because not everything is a franchise owned by a classic HK duopoly? Though yes, HK cuisine here isn't the most brilliant in London, I will admit. Would be a little sad though if HK cuisine in HK was worse (not considering Cafe de Coral, Fairwood and Maxim's as 'cuisine' btw).
Coworker leaving for Canada with his gf. He's only a few years out of uni and has never left Asia! I expect the cultural shock for him to be huge, especially since he wants to move outside his comfort zone and not associate with other HKers. He's very, very local. Gotta respect his courage to jump in the deep end though!
