2017, Hong Kong
“What do you do after work for entertainment in Hong Kong?” she asked. I pondered for seconds, and replied with a smile then said, “Basically the same as what Hong Kong people do.” And along with the smile, the question has also raised my curiosity towards the definition of entertainment in this capitalistic city.
During my first thought about entertainment in Hong Kong, it was only those capitalistic activities based almost entirely off of consumerism, and an amusement park brought this to its greatest extent.
However, amusement and enjoyment is the essence of entertainment, and having fun aimlessly can be an alternative lifestyle and entertainment that is independent of capitalistic consumerism.
