Hong Kong was hit by a strong typhoon over the weekend and it was a stormy night that hardly any of us in the house can sleep well, the wind must have been extremely strong as the traffic lights are turned (that was what looks wierd in my previous blog entry: http://www.biginhongkong.com/2009/07/19/DoYouNoticeWhatsWrongWithThisPhoto.aspx 

But despite that, the daily life of citizens were not affected, with an effective transportation network, especially MTR, it is possible to move around without even using an umbrella! My wife used to live in a place where she could commute to her work place all within covered area connected by MTR stations. So I can say that, despite high transportation costs, MTR improves the quality of life of people in this small city. 

Check out the MTR network here: http://www.mtr.com.hk/eng/train/system_map.html
