I’m a third-culture child. It’s an interesting concept. Having an American father, a South American mother, born in England, grew up in Hong Kong, went to school in Europe – it makes me a third-culture child, which means you take on the culture of the place where you live. So I’m very adaptable.
English is my second language, but in Hong Kong, they don’t know that I’m from China. They think I’m from Hollywood because all the films they see are from here. China and Hong Kong are very different places, but they’re starting to merge. Still the culture is very different.
Hong Kong movies were really popular in my generation.
After the Tiananmen Massacre, I felt compelled not only to continue writing but to actively resist the restrictions placed on freedom of speech.

I went to Hong Kong in ’97 to witness the handover after graduating university, and then I was gonna backpack around Asia and then come back here and look for a job.
You really can’t do a remake. I mean, ‘King Kong’ needed its turn to be remade. It needed an update. But the ‘Bad News Bears,’ or ‘The Shaggy D.A.,’ those are classic movies. I think they did a good job of remaking them, but it’s just not the same thing. Nobody can top Tatum O’Neal. It just isn’t the same.
I left Beijing in the late 1980s to live in Hong Kong because, having been blacklisted by the government, I couldn’t publish my works on the mainland.

When I first drove my car down Sunset Strip, I nearly crashed my car gazing at the monolithic ads of various celebrities. They are bigger than King Kong, and more frightening.
If achieving the Hong Kong dream becomes a vanishing hope, then our society will suffer. What would the Hong Kong dream be?

We do not want to see a Hong Kong that enjoys freedoms on paper, but whose autonomous status conceals the workings of a totalitarian state beneath.
Hong Kong has always been a symbol of the vibrant and free exchange of cultures, commerce and ideas. This reputation is threatened, however, in the face of China’s efforts to increase its authoritarian control within its sphere of influence.
Asia can learn much from Europe. Trade could be made easier in Asia, and the conditions for doing business could be improved by reducing red tape. In this regard, Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea have done better than the best in Europe.
When Hong Kong was under British administration, governors were dispatched from London to govern this city. We had no say in the matter.
I may have done an every-night gig in Hong Kong because I was there for almost 16 years, and in Manila, Philippines, I did gigs there.

In the 1950s, Hong Kong was a place where millions of people could go, from the mainland, to start in jobs like sewing shirts, making toys. But, to get on a process of increasing income, increasing skills led to very rapid growth there.

Every case involving cybercrime that I’ve been involved in, I’ve never found a master criminal sitting somewhere in Russia or Hong Kong or Beijing.

I’ve played 8-ball in Hong Kong and I’m more knowledgeable with that than 9-ball.
Hong Kong people stand in the front line to confront authoritarian suppression.
I confess I didn’t read the ‘Green Arrow‘ comics before coming to play Shado. The comic books are not as easily accessible in Hong Kong as they are in the States. I do enjoy superhero fiction, though.

I believe the absolute majority of Hongkongers have never felt that Hong Kong independence is a viable option.

Political activists in Hong Kong and Taiwan use Facebook as their primary tool to mobilize support for their causes and activities.

I am the first female chief executive of Hong Kong.
Hong Kong is a wonderful, mixed-up town where you’ve got great food and adventure. First and foremost, it’s a great place to experience China in a relatively accessible way.
Because I became a refugee in Macau during 1941, we had this war in Hong Kong, I fought for the government as an air raid warden for 15 days. Our government surrendered, Hong Kong Government surrendered, so I took a junk and came to Macau in 16 hours and I was a refugee, so that’s why I was so much indebted to Macau.
I’m Anna May Wong. I come from old Hong Kong. But now I’m a Hollywood star.
