    Great book to get to know the quirks of Hong Kong culture, but found it weird that some topics were omitted entirely (e.g. Helpers, maids), while others were covered extensively (e.g. Prostitution). Some chapters were more like lists and not very engaging. Overall, an interesting and helpful book.

    I really enjoyed this, although I found the system used to transliterate the Cantonese odd. I've lived here in Hong Kong for 7 years now, and if I had to put the Cantonese words and phrases I know into English letters, they would look very different! For example, "Guung hay fart choy" sounds more like "Kung Hay Fat Choy" (not "fart") to me.
