look. it's only "cage" style, cuz Hong Kong is crazy hot especially in the summer, so they use wires and not bug-chewable wood. HK government already builds thousands of huge apartments and sell them at almost base price.
well they are in no way lucky but, it could be much worst, the landlord said it himself if they were not living in those cage homes they would be living out in the streets(at least a few of them have tv's for entertainment right)
wow, i thought i was suffering without a jobs with a lot of bills to pay and pay my own college tution...i live with my parents so i feel lucky. on the other hand, i could not imagine 19 people living in a place with 2 restroom.
continued: Would you say the same thing about NYC after seeing the homeless there? How about LA, of SF? Lisbon? I've seen the shanty towns of Lisbon first hand, but I would never say it's not so great and exciting.
I have a relative there - family of 6.. they doing fairly well(financially).. but they share 450sq ft Flat... They seem ok w/ it.. I must have been so spoiled cos I couldnt even go to the restroom w/o hitting against walls trying to sit.
