Cultural differences: Hong Kong vs South America(2)
I went to inmigration on June 30 to get my Hong Kong ID card, first thing I see before getting there, the flag of my home country, Venezuela, their consulate its located in the second tallest building in Hong Kong, in the same building where the Hong Kong Inmigration office it’s located.
Getting the Hong Kong ID card its so different that what it would take at home, Venezuela. In Hong Kong you need to make an appoinment online then go to the office. In around 30minutes you are done. It seems that here people appreciate your time, I appreciate that.
I went to McDonald’s Generally I am not the biggest fan of McDonald’s but it was the easiest thing to eat given the time I had. I have been to McDonald’s in different countries, but nothing as impressive as Hong Kong. I went at peak time (around 13hrs), I order and 30 seconds later I get my food.
Other really interesting thing was to share the table with around 9 people that I don’t know, it was the Common table. There were no free tables available.
Hong kong, is very crowded, 7 million people live here, its really impressive how clean the streets are.
The octupus card, its freaking awesome, it’s a prepaid card, that you can use on public transportation, you just put it on the sensor and that’s it.
The octupus card can also be used in stores like 7eleven and some supermarkets and even in some McDonald’s
I am falling in love…
