Type:VideoLanguage:EnglishCategories:文化Arts & CultureStatus:On going Description: Hong Kong is truly a world city. Here you can find nationalities from all over the globe. According to the 2011 census, there are 451,000 ethnic minorities living in Hong Kong, making up 6.4% of the total population. It is a threefold increase from ten years ago.
This series documents the lives of ethnic minorities with long-term residency in Hong Kong, especially how they live among the local Chinese. The subjects include the grassroots, those who have a certain degree of success in their careers and the professionals. It weaves a picture of joy and sorrow, of frictions, disputes and mutual support.
The series delves into the religion, culture, education, career, entertainment, friendship, marriage, and food of the ethnic minorities in Hong Kong. The goal is for viewers of different nationalities and racial origins to understand how to live with each other by breaking down the wall of language and cultural differences, and to live with each other with understanding and without prejudice.

I think, so I'm here 00:21:47 2017-08-18
By mastering Cantonese since his childhood, WEI Ching-duck, a Nepalese boy, has made his integration into Hong Kong much easier and he has also completed all secondary science programmes with good grades. However, he has not grown complacent. WEI Ching-duck likes to ponder over the logic of life and hence study of Philosophy. He has also joined the debate team in university to enhance his skills in critical thinking and exposition. Moreover, he plans to become a civil servant or a politician in the future with a single motive behind, that is, he wants to encourage more adolescents with ethnic minority backgrounds to strive for better development in Hong Kong through his personal experience.

As a Nepalese, WEI Ching-duck knows more about social issues in Hong Kong than many locals, and he is also more outspoken. In addition, he believes the responsibility of helping his fellow ethnic minorities rests on his shoulders, thus he has grown up participating in many voluntary works in assistance of ethnic minorities. Although WEI Ching-duck was not born in Hong Kong, he was raised here. With a face similar to that of Chinese, it is hard to tell that he is Nepalese when he walks among his schoolmates and friends. As a music lover, he loves to perform on the street at the waterfront with his old friends. He strums his guitar and sings “Boundlessness” out loud through his amplifier. If he were to metaphorise the song for Hong Kong and ethnic minorities, what would he want to express?

Since the debate competition is closing in, the frequent strategic meetings come day after day. As the team captain in the face of challenges from other institutions, WEI Ching-duck believes that guiding his teammates to excellent cooperation and fulfilling his duties mean more than the result of the competition. WEI Ching-duck hopes to boost his self-confidence through the challenges encountered in university, so that he can set an example to other ethnic minorities to climb up the social ladder.
