You know you're in Hong Kong if...

You know you're in Hong Kong if:

  1. it's 50 degrees outside and all the air conditioners are on (in taxis, malls, offices, etc).
  2. education is compulsory for two year old children.
  3. you see Mercedes, BMW's, Porches, Jaguars, Rolls Royces and you haven't left your parking garage yet.
  4. you go out to eat and a glass of Coke is $5 US dollars!
  5. you are able to recognize at least 35 different languages while dining out in a single restaurant.
  6. a gallon of milk costs more than a gallon of gasoline and a gallon of gas is $8.50!
  7. you can get 127 varieties of seaweed, but only 3 varieties of Pop Tarts.
  8. you can get immediate seating at a restaurant at 6 pm, but have a 2 hour wait at 7.
  9. you can drink from the faucet, but are afraid to breathe the air.
  10. you can't walk 20 feet in the tourist areas without being offered a "good tailor" or "copy Rolex".
  11. most every woman between the ages of 20 and 50 are wearing mini-skirts or hot-pants and go-go boots with stiletto heals AND NONE OF THEM ARE PROSTITUTES!

I'll add more to these as time goes on. Please feel free to add ideas in the comment section and I might add them on right away.

Have a safe trip back to the states and find rest while you are there. You all will be missed greatly though! ;)

Take care and have a great time with family and friends....
