I mean, COST of living IS high in Hong Kong (yes, higher than in Singapore), but you still have CHOICE of living mah i.e. how you choose to live your life.

You see, celebrity or not, there are also choices that can help us save money right? $4,000 designer shoes vs Bata / Taobao shoes, $15 atas Broccolini or $2 FairPrice Caixin (still got discount and Linkpoints)… You get the idea. CHOICE of living. Can choose one…
