Hong Kong is a city where limousines outnumber taxi cabs, party-goers count down to Christmas every December 24, and giant billboards of fortune tellers and cram school tutors compete with breathtaking skylines. This collection of essays zeroes in on the city's idiosyncrasies with deadpan precision. An outsider looking in and an insider looking out, Jason Y. Ng has created a travel journal for the passing visitor, and a user's manual for the wide-eyed expat.
