Rush Hour 3

Growing up with London, I understand a lot of the criticisms about the city. For all the positives in the city, there is always a recurring sensitivity about the coldness of the 'natives', and how no one has any time for you, in part because everyone is in such a rush.


Yet the culture of urgency in Hong Kong is something that still surprises me everytime I go back. Depending on the situation, there are times that I can substitute urgency for impatience. If I think about whether I can live in Hong Kong in the future, I have to ask whether I can adapt to this culture of urgency, in the same way that I would expect someone coming to London to understand that this is just the way things are here.


Sometimes, I just think people should slow the bloody hell down.
