Not for everyone 不是每个人的 ...


For those who live here,
the dense high rise, fast paced lifestyle
constant sensory overload of sights and sounds,
that's the Hong Kong I know;
Certainly not for everyone

This sounds a lot like New York City.

Piękny widok, nie wiem jednak co by mnie tam wywindowało. Mam klaustrofobię.

Thank you for providing something to hold on to, while the city moves on and on.
Living here, in a 5mio+ city, is already difficult enough for me. Please have a good weekend.

Definitely agree. The hustles and bustles of the city, constant blaring of horns and pedestrians yelling at cars like it's their job sure need some getting used to, haha. Loved Hong Kong though, just don't know if I'd like to live there one day. You're right, not for everyone :)

That's how I remember it also Wong. Such a wonderful perspective to accompany your words.

I am not sure I would do well with the sensory overload. I have been far removed from city living for a long time now.

Never been but I hear it's a great city to visit.

Wong you're right, definitely not for everyone. I love my wide open spaces and semi-clean air, I'm blessed to live where I do, cold and all!

Have a wonderful weekend!
