Crowded Causeway Bay

Causeway Bay is a flourishing place, especially at night.


One day, I went window shopping there. There were crowds of people and heavy traffic everywhere. The air was thick with pollution.


I tried to escape by going into Sogo. But there were people crowded outside waiting for friends. The ringing of mobile phones mixed with shop announcements became very annoying. Many groups of fashionable office ladies talked and laughed noisily. It was unbearable.


I had a headache and went into a restaurant. I was shocked by the scene. People were chatting cheerfully while they clinked their cups and cutlery.


At last, I went to the cinema thinking it might be better. I was wrong again. Many couples were queuing to buy tickets. All I could hear was lovers whispering sweet nothings to each other.


'I'm suffocating in here!' I shouted.
