    Wow...doing medical research seems pretty cool! I would definitely love to do that!

    Do you have residence there and do they provide food for you? I hope they do that in exchange for your research.

    I wear glasses (or contacts). - Glasses makes me look kinda sophisticated
    Everyone else in my family (and most of my cousins) wears glasses too though, so maybe it's something to do with it. Do you wear glasses yourself?

    i think... u know how expensive the housing in hk are ,so some people are living in a small flat (compare to uk) even middle class but they still put a Huge TV in their living room, may be thats why it lead to so many ppl wear glasses i guess?! lol
