Assuming you've been watching the same Hong Kong films as the rest of us, you must be familiar with the scene: our protagonist is making a mad dash across Hong Kong in the middle of rush hour. Yet despite the standstill traffic, he makes considerable progress by embracing creative driving techniques: pushing his Lexus over sidewalks, taking hairpin turns down pedestrian walkways, and even crashing down the mid-levels escalator.

Since we're sure this sounds familiar and may even have whetted your appetite for some Hong Kong motoring, we will try to break the news softly. Despite what any sensible driver might conclude from years of exposure to these allegedly documentary works, this is not actually how people drive in Hong Kong. So trying to cut a bit of time off your commute may be frowned upon by the authorities. And no, we don't think it's fair either.

I remember there was a case in HK last year about a judge's niece that caused a road accident and slapped a police officer... I don't she would've got away with this dialogue :D

This is one of the few dialogues that isn't filled with 啊. I was beginning to believe it was impossible to have a conversation in cantonese without 啊.

I once saw a video of a little Hong Kong girl reciting the 道德經.

"道可道

非常道啊

名可名

非常名啊..."

this is very very very dangerous. please if you have to be creative be so but only as far as the design process is concerned with pen and paper. not on the road. that is the last place where irresponsibility ought to be shown. driving is a lot like behavior or dieting. if you're mad or obese obviously it shows. like pornography you can tell it is something wrong even if you haven't seen it before. when accidents happen and you end up a cripple in a wheelchair then how creative will you get to be? i don't think you would want that to happen. my cousin's friend used to drive with one wheel on the boulevard roundabout's edge tiles. such sensationalistic and stupid acts suit teens and only slutty teens. not decent law abiding citizens.
