Hong Kong Expattery.

This video blog Hong Kong Expattery is pretty irreverent and very hilarious.

When I ask for a shoe in a woman’s size 9 (40):

What locals hear when I speak Cantonese:

Some of my personal favorites include: When people clip their nails in public (which I’ve seen way too many times here), when friends ask me how I like living in Japan (happens an embarrassing (for them) amount), when I breeze through immigration with my HKID (love it!), and when I’m stuck standing behind tourists on the left hand side of an escalator (so annoying!).

The next time I’m frustrated with some of the inconveniences of living in a foreign land, I’m just going to visit this blog. Thanks to my friend Fareesa for sending this over.

  1. Years ago while on business in Hong Kong I learned about the difference in clothing sizes the hard way. At the end of a few week trip with a few side trips to other cities in the region I was having a laundry crisis. I had a very early flight back to the States the next day and ran to M&S in Central to buy a pack of cheap and cheerful knickers to avert crisis just minutes before it closed. Oh the horror of a 16 hour flight wearing knickers 2 sizes too small.
    Can’t remember how I came across your blog but I enjoy reading it. Please give my regards to fabulous Hong Kong.

    • Wow! That is not fun at all… the sizes are SO small here. Thanks for reading and I am going to check out your blog now!

  2. Oh, my gosh – clipping nails in public happens all too often. How do people not know that this is NOT okay?! I love the expression on the woman’s face re: size 9 shoes! Hilarious.
