myHK: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly! HONG KONG EDITION!


Alrighty folks! Let’s play!! 

Let’s hear your best examples of the good, the bad and the ugly in Hong Kong!

Here are mine!

The Good
For this nomination, I had a few good contenders, but for me the winners are the people going out almost nightly to give food to the homeless. Every time we have been out in Sham Shui Po delivering goody bags to the needy, there’s been another group there doing the same thing. I’ll give a mention to similar kind hearted people who feed abandoned cats in the late evenings.

The Bad
I’m gonna RUN DMZ this bad boy with a, “not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good!”

My winner of the badass award goes to Jianzi players in the parks of Hong Kong. “What’s Jianzi?” you ask!
Jianzi is a traditional Asian game in which players aim to keep a heavily weighted shuttlecock in the air by using their bodies, apart from the hands.
Here’s a video!

I’ve seen men and women, that at first glance you’d assume to be completely void of any athletic ability, dominating the shuttlecock like ninjas!   It doesn’t get much more badass than that!

The Ugly
This nasty award goes to employers who treat their domestic helpers like slaves. Helpers in Hong Kong work strenuous hours for little pay.  Some take care of children and elderly, playing a vital role in the survival of their employer’s family.  Yet, many employers take this for granted and just expect gold in return for paying well under Hong Kong’s minimum wage.

Let me know your nominations for the good, the bad and the ugly in the comments below!!


Make it a good one !
