    - Serve drinks in pubs during weekend? Work in restaurants?
    - Sell stuff on Ebay?
    - Spend less? Although it may sound a silly answer, I'm sure many can save easily 1000 to 2000 HKD a month by buying only when you get a discount, for ex. coupon buying, second hand buying, during sales, etc.


    My personal top 3 of worst part time jobs ive done during college ...

    1. collecting empty bottles in pubs (work while people next to you are partying.) in Cardiff, at 5 pound an hour (hated that job)
    2. part time work in service industry : waiter at cheap ass parties (for low pay, you get treated like cattle)
    3. night work at a pea factory (great pay, horrible weekend work. always wet environment and 12 hour shifts. Can earn a month wage while only working weekend from 5 pm to 5 am.) This was such horrible work 90% of the people quit after 2 shifts. Really great pay though.

    I know a couple who make quite a bit extra with a handily placed webcam in their bedroom.....

    What about buying and selling on ebay? Really if there was an easy way to make a little bit extra online then a lot of people would already be doing it.

    Translation or editing. Lots of money for little effort.
    I used to make up to US$ 400 a day.

    What are your skills that could be used online? Translation, ghost writing are obvious choices for writer types. Fair amount of graphics and web design work is outsourced through sites like mytino.com (an advertiser and we outsource work on there), elance.com (more difficult and expensive to join as they need a fair bit of qualifications checks...)
