Yea no hard feeling. But yesterday breakfast my friend complaint to the boss as the waiter bang the spoon on the table cuz they didn't provide enough spoon. I said no need complaint lah as this is their land and we cannot do anything. HK people is like that lor. But actually some of them were good oso lah. During HK, three of us will usually said 'mou yi si' or 'em goi sai' to them. So far only met 2 nice aunty~ hehe....

Just came back from HK yesterday. Overall trip was ok and yes it was freaking hot (summer). Raining on and off. The food over there were nice. Only one of the so call cafe the food sucks. I noticed one thing, all the waiter and waitress their face were black. So you hv to order quickly and calm down when they are rude to you. Is just their culture. Might be going there again next time probably on the month between Dec-Feb as the weather will be cold.

Ugh hot huh... I just came back from Japan and it was hot. Flying to HK mid next week and it's still hot ah ohmy.gif ohmaigawd. It's okay to wear sleeveless and short pants right? Any clothing restrictions when you visit temple and such? Gotta get an umbrella there if it rains often sigh.

Reason I ask about clothing is coz generally in Japan, it's "frowned" upon when you show skin on your shoulders/ chest (the locals dress modestly and cover their shoulders and chest). No doubt they wouldn't say anything and understand when tourists dress that way, not knowing the local culture.

Black faced waiters and waitress in HK hahaha I think I can understand. It's very hot, crowded, packed, pay is little etc and at the same time they have to serve customers. My first trip there soon, so a little anxious not knowing what to expect except for possible rude behaviour (as I was told), hot weather, crowds and fast paced walking.

If not mistaken it is still hot there. During my trip, one of the day the temperature sky up to 35 degree. ohmy.gif blush.gif My tanned skin got layer liao, but because i went to cheung chau lah. Beach mah~ (Nice place btw)

Oh how was Japan summer? Like Malaysia kah? I just went to Hokkaido on May. That time going summer soon as the weather was mid cold and a bit hot. Wear modestly? 2 years ago during Japan's spring mostly I will wore sweater lah because it was still very cold.

As for clothing in HK there won't be any restrictions. Because it is summer, HK guys over there all wear t-shirt, shorts and sneakers. As for girls, they wear blouse, t-shirt, shorts and sneakers as well. If you feel really hot just go to the nearest shopping mall.

And for the restaurants, just bear with the waiter and waitress attitude/behavior. Not same like Japanese very polite. I went to Australian Dairy Company char chan teng, an uncle shout right behind me when he served tea to my friend. You just get all your orders 1st then it shouldn't be any problem. Just enjoy the food as you go for the food only.

Enjoy your trip.

Beach ahhh no wonder laugh.gif was thinking of hiking but I doubt we'll have time for it.

Japan summer is somewhat similar to Malaysia but less humid; it feels drier. Hokkaido is awesome to visit any season hahahaha and since it's cold all year round - the summer is cool. So nice!

Thanks for your sharing. Unfortunately my friend couldn't speak Cantonese or read Chinese, so I'll have to be the translator. I don't wanna get shouted at T___T dang it.

Haha.. Cantonese. This is the funniest part in my HK trip. HK people do really know we are from other country (either Malaysia/Singapore) as our Cantonese really different with them in terms of slang. Even some of the Chinese word, my 2 other friend do not know how to read as I'm banana also. I only know how to speak Cantonese. I'm sure when you ask for something in Cantonese, HK people will react 'Hah?' Coz I remember my friend ask for fried sotong. The HK girl just 'Hah?'

But I dunno lah, maybe your Cantonese pro den me. Share your experience ya when you back from HK. Looking forward for it. Hehe~

i am half banana too. can only talk and listen but so far no issue for me to communicate with them.

i guess i watched too much TVB and roughly know the words they usually use.

btw, they mostly use mandarin when serving customers rather than cantonese now.

Singaporeans speak Cantonese ke ohmy.gif unless they are Malaysians who have migrated there... otherwise they communicate mostly in Mandarin right?!

Now I'm curious, how do they order "fried sotong" in HKG?

Yeah Cantonese not easy to read. I can read some Mandarin but when it's written in Cantonese, my reading speed is x10 slower and sometimes cannot comprehend. My Mandarin ain't good so I prefer English/ Canto.

Eh wait, "hao bin/ min" is back woh... and "bin pei" means the 'side' isn't it?

I just know cannot say "tapao" hahahahaha because in HK tapao means 'wrapping a dead body' and they often laugh when Malaysians say this.
