    I have no hot water in the kitchen either, so I have to use a non-transparent kettle for heating water for washing up.

    And that he doesn't use the cold water to wash his rice.

    Judging by the comments that 1% might need to be amended again

    I have had hot water in all the flats I've lived in so far, but am moving to a village house on Saturday and didn't even think to check the hot-water-in-the-kitchen situation. I did check they had running water at least

    I'm nervous just thinking about it.

    Obviously it doesn't really affect me whether there is water in the wife's domain though. *ducks for cover*

    I personally find it strange and unbelievable and think the agent is talking crap! But then again, I don't know how the majority of local HK people live. I've mostly lived in newer apartments or those less than 10 years old.

    Still, sounds hard to believe.
    yes, few old flats have hot water tap/heater in the kitchen.

    generally the shower and kitchen are not connected to one heater because the hot water heater capacity, typically it will handle say approx. 15 l/min for the shower, not 15+8 l/min for both shower and kitchen sink used together. So you will find that newish flats usually have two water heaters one for each.


    my 2 cents.

    probably only 1% of the village houses have hot water in the kitchen
