HK elite

Many established South Asians in Hong Kong don't particularly like to be associated with Chungking Mansions, a fact I can well understand.

Knowing this, I teased someone I met the other day who asked what I do:

'I work in Chungking Mansions, have you heard of it?'

The answer took me back somewhat as I realised I was speaking with HK royalty:

'Actually, my father owns the hotel next door'

I had heard of that one.
