So, I'm back from HK and I have a few observations:-
Guys are even more a effeminate than the last time I was in HK (that was last summer).
Parachute pants are still worn mainly by HK males, with converse, shiney/brightly coloured tops, and the usual cool Asian messy crop hair.
People commenting how pricey vegetables are in the outdoor/wet markets
Found myself getting impatient waiting 2 minutes for a train.
Café de Coral has gone a little upmarket (they renovated and made it look less of a fast food restaurant)
Shops re-fitted in my local shopping plaza since last July with jeweller's (Chow Tai Fook, Chow Sang Sang, Luk Fook, and all the rest of the big names), coffee shops and sport shops, totally changed that section of the plaza to be a little upmarket.
Sales staff are just as clingy and annoying.
Weather is lovely in March, like Irish weather.
Sundays are mad in Shatin shopping plaza, so many people!
There's always a crowd in Kowloon Tong MTR, no matter what time of day it is.
Orderly during rush hour in MTR (underground), passengers respect the person with the stop sign.
People still don't really hold doors open for those behind them.
I acquired the ignore strangers around me (especially if they are sales staff), which wears away after a few days back home in Ireland.
Prices like HK$2XXX are making their way back into Golden Arcade (games, electronics, etc). Really annoying that you have to talk to staff when bargain hunting.
Missed chance to have some noodles at a certain restaurant, HK airport saved the day. Don't go for Mc D's, last chance to try out local food at the departure area. *yum yum*
