A lot has happened since the Hong Kong protests began, and many Hong Kong people have had to adapt to much change.
Throughout Hong Kong’s summer of dissent, the people of Hong Kong have had to accept and adapt to a multitude of changes. This not only includes change in policies by the government, but a change in their way of life too.
Since the protests began in June, Hongkongers have watched the movement grow and evolve. We have seen the enactment - and subsequent lifting - of a ban on masks, a ban on the sale of black-coloured clothing, and the signing of the Human Rights and Democracy Act by US president Donald Trump.
Through it all, Hongkongers have kept calm and carried on admirably with the “Lion Rock Spirit”. Here are ten things we didn’t know six months ago, but have become the norm now.
