Eliza Sam attended an event related to property in Vancouver at the Central and expressed her desire to buy properties in Vancouver and Hong Kong. When asked if her dream will come true this year, Eliza said: "Hope so. I missed the chance to buy property in Vancouver earlier. (Buy it together with your boyfriend?) I prefer to depend on myself. (Ask him to buy more property?) Yes, it is better for women to have financial income."

 

Mentioning about TVB planned to organise Mr. Hong Kong and Miss Hong Kong Pageant together this year, Eliza (Miss Chinese International) said: "What about the bikini segment? But it is quite interesting. (Finds it weird?) Has to test it in order to know the results."

 

Speaking about her good friend, Linda Chung's recent condition, Eliza replied she visited her when returning to Vancouver last month: "She is very happy. (Her stomach is getting bigger?) Not saying it but I saw it. (She gains weight?) She is having a blissful life." Eliza added she knew the baby's gender but could not reveal it. Asking when Linda will be returning to Hong Kong, Eliza responded she had no idea.

 

When mentioned about she accidentally scratched other people's car when parking earlier, Eliza disclosed she had taken photo of the evidence in order to prove she did not scratch the opposite party's car: "My driving skill in Vancouver is not bad but driving in Hong Kong is harder. I am a slow learner and usually drive from Po Lam to Tseung Kwan O. But I feel more nervous when driving to Tai Hang on that day." Eliza added she felt relieved whenever the GPS was switched on and her friend was usually beside her upon driving to unfamiliar road.

of course! Hong Kong is way more crowded than Vancouver. I would assume it's like traffic most of the day in Hong Kong.

Driving in HK is tough. The roads are narrow and the drivers are aggressive. Mainland China is even worst.

i think HK transportation is good enough to travel, if u have private the expenses will be more higher than public transport

It is a tough challenge to drive in Hk, I would never consider it, the public transports are better and convenient enough.

Not harder but different. It's a matter of getting used to it.

There's a really big difference driving in Hong Kong vs. Canada.. especially because they drive on opposite sides.

The roads in HK are very hard to recognize. One wrong turn and you end up on the other side of the island. And people tend to drive very close together and it can be stressful when pedestrians walk out of nowhere and start to cross the roads.

I'm not surprised since Hong Kong has lot more people. She should try trying in NYC, she might not want to ever drive again.

It's better that she admits to be a slow learner and drive cautiously but safely. The amount of people & traffic as well as being on the opposite side definitely contributes to making driving in HK a challenge!
