We’ve just seen this interesting article on Gateway Hong Kong that details the cost of living in Hong Kong this year – great for anyone interested in moving there.
Like the article implies, the costs can vary according to your preferences on where you live, food etc but we know from experience that you can get by very cheaply if you stick to local goods and services. Of course, if you have relatives that you can stay with or your family has a home there (which may be common for many overseas Chinese), then you can already discount the rent.

Artist Red Hong created an amazing portrait of Chinese film director Zhang Yimou. If there was ever a way for a sock seller in Hong Kong’s Mongkok Ladies Market (or in fact, any market) to stand out, this would be it.

Etsy user Jason K combined characters from Studio Ghibli classics with the iconic design of Penguin book covers to create a series of posters. Unfortunately, he no longer seems to sell them. Anyway, here are a few of his designs with more at Design Taxi here.

This has been around for a couple of years but still raises a smile. Just hilarious and seemingly spontaneous. Chuck Norris faces Bruce Lee in a break dance off to being a session that also “features” Bolo and even Guile from Street Fighter.
