It’s a walk in the park

This week, we asked our readers: if there were no adults in Hong Kong for a day, what would you do? Here are our favourite answers ...

Sofa, so good

I would stay home and be a couch potato for the entire day. What would be better than just lying on the sofa and doing nothing? Most importantly, no one would be watching!

Dishing it out

I would go to the market and buy different types of food. Then I would cook them. There would be no one to shout at me if my dishes taste bad. I would simply throw the bad ones away.

Fun-tastic day!

If there were no adults (read workers) for a day, I would be free to go to any place I like, free of charge. I would sleep till noon, and since there would be no transport, I would visit Ocean Park and Disneyland by skateboard. I would be with my buddies, laughing, dancing, and having a great time. I would eat hamburgers and French fries instead of wheat bread. Oh ... what a fantastic day!

I need munchies

I would spend all my time eating snacks. My parents scold me whenever they see me eating munchies, so this would be one of the most blissful days of my life.

Good times begin with being stranded

Rappin’ good time

I would finally have the chance to sing loudly at home. I am rap music lover. When my parents are at home, they don’t let me sing, because they don’t understand my songs at all. So if there were no adults, I would ask my friends to come over for a rap session.

In the mood for pillow fights

I would have pillow fights with my sister and brother at home. It is a game forbidden by my parents, but we all like it. I want to see what my home would look like after non-stop pillow fights.

I’ll be with my Korean idols

I would definitely watch Korean drama for the whole day. My parents don’t let me watch Korean TV programmes for more than two hours a week, so this would be a precious opportunity to spend a whole day with my handsome Korean idols.

Also, my mum doesn’t let me eat snacks, so if she weren’t there, I would enjoy different kinds of snacks like potato chips, biscuits and chocolate. No rice, please!

Ho Yuk-ki, 14, Immaculate Heart of Mary College

Now you see me, now you don't!

Driving desire

Hooray! Driving is no longer a privilege for over-18s! I’ll grab my parents’ car and go for a nice, long drive. This way, I can also compare the feeling between driving in the virtual world of video games and in reality.

Clara Chan Hoi-ying, 17, Wa Ying College

Brotherly love

All I can do is stay at home and look after my baby sister. Boring, right? I agree. But, without my mother and father, it is my responsibility to take care of my little sister. I just cannot leave her alone.

Ho Lok-hang,16, Po Leung Kuk Ma Kam Ming College

Home away from home

I would go to Government House and spend the day exploring the place. I mean, come on! C.Y. has been forcing us to go to school for years, and I can’t use his home even for a day? That’s absolute injustice!
