Hongkongers complain a lot. But you’ll never hear us utter any of these things…

1. “Our summers are way too short.”

Winter is definitely not coming.

2. “If it doesn’t rain soon, I’m worried we’ll be in a drought.”

More like I’ve already gone through two pairs of rain boots in the few years I’ve been here.

3. “Money is kind of tight this month. Let’s go to Sheung Wan for dinner.”

Want to check out the coolest restaurant in the Western District? Better wait until you win the lottery.

4.Just going to stop by CitySuper to pick up a few essentials.”

Browsing through the aisles like…

5. “Where can I buy a rice cooker?”

In this town, they’re as ubiquitous as 7-Eleven.

6. “I’m not that keen on checking out the newest bar/restaurant in town.”

Although if it doesn’t have a huge line, it’s probably not worth going to.

7. “Our city needs more people working in the finance sector.”

8. “This minibus driver is kind of slow.”

You should never ride a red minibus without a sick bag at the ready.

9. “It’ll only take us a few seconds to hail a cab that goes cross-harbor.”

Trying to get one at changeover time? You might as well swim — it’ll be faster.

10. “I’m taking my dog down to the public park for a walk.”

Good luck taking your furry friend anywhere.

11. “I don’t travel.”

via GIPHY

12. “Rent is so cheap that I’m thinking about getting a bigger place.”

via GIPHY

We’d bet not even the city’s tycoons could hand on heart say this.

13. “I love hanging out in TST/Causeway Bay on weekends.”

via GIPHY

Only if you enjoy the gentle aroma of sweat from millions of people.

14. “The streets are so dangerous at night!”

via GIPHY

Statistically, you’re almost 300 times less likely to be murdered in Hong Kong than in New Orleans. Sorry, New Orleans.

15. “The public transport systems in other cities are way better than ours.”

via GIPHY

Nothing beats the MTR. I mean, have you ever seen the New York subway?

16. “There’s nothing to do in Hong Kong.”

via GIPHY

People who have nothing to do are either hanging out with the wrong people or just plain lazy.
