For example, dating. How would you contrast dating in Europe (or US) with dating in Hong Kong. In the West there is a premium on youth, or at least looking youthful, but I hear that many countries in Asia value success/wealth, even the wisdom of age, over youth/appearance. Did you find that to be true (I realize that your experiences as a gay man would likely be different from mine as a hetero . . but yet you might have a keener seense of straight socializing more than I would about gay socializing).

I understand that there is much wealth in HK. But they do have poor, working class, middle class too, correct? What is the relationship of various classes of people to each other . . they live appart, don't socialize together, or do they?

Finally, immigration. Does Hong Kong have much inter-group tension? . . animosity? Is there a clash of cultures there or more harmony than you might find in the West?

Just curious.
