The Land of Milk and Honey

Read this article on the IHT, where it describes Hong Kong as “The Land of Milk and Honey”, which is interesting considering the general sentiments right now regarding our government, politics and the rich-poor divide.

While the article itself  is VERY average, here’s an interesting quote:

“There are only two reasons why a white guy will come to Hong Kong. The first is to make money and evade taxes. The second is girls. But really, once you get down to it, there’s really only the first reason.”

I’ve long thought along those lines, but considered it too rude to say out loud. At the end of the day, from what I see, I think it applies to most foreigners here, be them male or female (the money part, that is). It would be interesting to hear about anyone that’s here for other reasons.
