    Luckily for the 3 visits I did in HK, I didn't experience any of that pushing and shoving in MTR. Most probably those times weren't exactly rush hours.

    While on the MTR today I saw an infant sitting in a pram; It was staring at me for a long time, and sure enough, it reached out and began to roll the pram over to me; after a quick look at my new shoes, it rolled over my foot!

    what could I do? It was an infant, and I wanted to avoid any trouble.

    I stood up and began to walk away, but the infant rolled the tram up against me and tripped me. At that point I was furious! These damnable local babies on the MTR with their absolute lack of spatial awareness!

    I screamed gai lan choi as loud as I could while grabbing the pram and pushing it towards the open door; just then the infant's mother looked up from her mobile phone and saw what I was doing.

    "Stupid gweilo!" she yelled while she began to swing her bag at my red gweilo face.

    "Aiyaaaaaah!" was my only reply as I ran off the train just as the doors were closing.

    but: there is a good ending to the story: I looked down and saw a $1 coin. score!

    I actually made some money today.

    The next SuperKid....while sitting on a pushchair he manages to roll it over your feet and then he even manages to roll the tram up against you while you were walking....

    Am I missing something here ;-)?
