Author and blogger Jason Y Ng has a knack for making the familiar both fascinating and funny. Three years after his best-selling debut Hong Kong State of Mind , the razor-sharp observer returns with a sequel that is bigger and every bit as poignant. This is a collection of 36 ess...ays that examine some of the pressing social, cultural and existential issues facing Hong Kong. It takes us from the gravity-defying property market to the plunging depths of old age poverty, from the storied streets of Sheung Wan to the beckoning island of Cheung Chau, from the culture-shocked Western expatriate to the misunderstood Mainland Chinese and the disenfranchised foreign domestic worker. The result is a treatise on Hong Kong life that is thought-provoking, touching and immensely entertaining.Read more

Fourteen of Hong Kong's finest authors explore the dark heart of the Pearl of the Orient in brand-new stories of depravity and despair.
By Ng, Jason Y.; Illustrated by Ng, Lee Po
Hong Kong is a mixed bag of a city. It is where Mercedes outnumber taxi cabs, partygoers count down to Christmas every December 24, and larger-than-life billboards of fortune tellers and cram school tutors compete with breathtaking skylines. HONG KONG State of Mind is a collectio...n of essays by a popular blogger who zeroes in on the city's idiosyncrasies with deadpan precision. At once an outsider looking in and an insider looking out, Ng has created something for everyone: a travel journal for the passing visitor, a user's manual for the wide-eyed expat, and an open diary for the native Hong Konger looking for moments of reflection. Honest, insightful and immensely entertaining. - Joseph Chow, editor-in-chief, Elle (HK)Read more
