myHK: MTR People Gone Wild!
The MTR in Hong Kong is full of characters! A people watchers paradise! Here are a few of my favorites!
“Clip! Clip! Clip!” Ahhh, the lovely sound of nails being clipped! This is one of those sounds that doesn’t bother you if you’re making it, but listening to someone else make it can be so infuriating. Luckily the MTR floor is like a bottomless pit. It just swallows up whatever falls on it from boogies to Mainlander’s urine.
These are the people who are always ready to pounce on a seat the minute someone stands up. Some are more obvious than others, with their direct stares, while others sneakily pretend to be looking away, keeping their competition complacent. Seat Predators will do anything to get their seat!
These individuals don’t give a F%$#! They have throats and lungs that they are so proud of, they want the whole train to see, and smell them. Bonus point for throwing in loud yawning grunts!
The MTR can be a bit stop and go, left and right. There’s a reason there are so many handles and bars to hold on to. Butt sometimes you need be a little more secure! A secret of some is to very simply place the bar between their buttocks. Lock it down! Not only is your anal seatbelt fastened, you also find a lot more space around you for some reason…
Who are your favourite MTR characters? Let me know in the comments below, and please share and if you liked this check out my, Things that make me go, ‘hmmm….’ blog HERE

The Turbo-gran. Shuffles along at a snail’s pace, but as the doors open could rival Usain Bolt in a 100m sprint to the only empty seat, that we would have given to them anyway since they appear so old and frail!
Turbo-gran! Ha!! Love it! lining up outside the doors, it strangely similar to the horse racing in happy valley.
The wet-market wanderer. Walk slowly up and down the carriage looking for a seat, with fish flapping madly in plastic bag. Finally they sit down and put the bag on the floor, leaving two stations later having gifted us with a lingering memory in the form of a stinky puddle on the floor…….
Ha! I luckily havent seen this one, but I can picture it pretty easily!
The Gold Digger. An exercise in nostril expansion for all to admire.
Where I come from we call that “Digging for diamonds”! Maybe they can get together?
Oh butt flosser, gross!
Don’t put your butt on the pole unless you plan on making a career out of it.
Conference Callers: Having a convo on the phone that is 1mm away from their mouth but yet is talking so loud that we are all in on the call. Key is to laugh when they say something funny so that they can see you….then give them a thumbs up as to acknowledge that they have said something funny.
Lol ! Yes, we might want to call these people, “barking dogs”!
