Hong Kong is a haven for F.I.L.T.H. (failed in London , try hong kong)
Sex and drugs-fuelled debauchery involving variety of Asian 'muff' -ins
Hong Kong wins hands down for the British men!
The average amount of rainy days in England is 156.
Humidity seldom gets above 90% or below 70% in England...
How often did you need a/c or a de-humidifier to protect your books and clothes in England? Personally, I much prefer getting warm in front of a fire than cooling off with a/c.
I'm a mountain biker and I find it frustrating in the summer as it is often too hot/uncomfortable for me to ride.
As to food... I didn't say 'English food' is better... I said 'the food' is better in England.
First of all, I think Hong Kong food is generally garbage... I like some dim sum I suppose... but watery soup that looks like mop bucket water? Tripe? Gruel? Chicken's feet? Meat cut so as to maximise bone content? Gristle and tendons and fat? Lungs?
It's subjective, but in my opinion, Hong Kong food is simply rubbish.
If you want great English food, there are many gastropubs that cook proper traditional English fare... One thing I miss is a good Sunday carvery with Yorkshire Pudding... Popping to a cosy pub with real ale, a roaring fire, dogs and Shepherds Pie after a brisk walk on the common.
At home, I usually ate in the Mediterranean style and supermarket shopping made that a breeze. If I was feeling lazy, ready meals, a selection in the 100s.
I would argue that restaurants in England are better. My town had several Indians, Chinese, a Greek, a Spanish, a French, a Noodle bar and many other specialty restaurants... all great food, reasonably priced and great service... not to mention all the usual chains; Pizza Express, Nandos, etc... sans overcrowding, noise and service with a scowl.
