... okay?" No problem. I didn't expect I would ever need to look this information up especially on the other side of the world. And then they asked (the form) for the job of my parents.

I have seen better on a Disneyland Paris advert and it did feel like we were on West Egg gazing over to East Egg yearning for what everyone over there has (Gatsby reference)! It was like "hey Kowloom city look at us and how flash and amazing we are with our big Samsung building, bright rainbow lights and gorgeous skyline etc". ...
