What would you do if you became a millionaire?

What would you do if you became a millionaire?

One in every 38 Hongkongers is a US dollar millionaire, one of the highest rates in the world. We asked our readers how they would change their lifestyle if they were ever lucky enough to reach that status. Here are the best answers ...

1. Share the wealth

I've always believed that happiness comes from helping others. If I were a millionaire, instead of shopping for more stuff I probably don't need, I would continue to live my current lifestyle. I wouldn't spend any extra money on myself. I'd rather share my wealth with other people.

Vanessa Sin, 17, Li Po Chun United World College


2. Mind the gap

It is ridiculous that one in every 38 Hongkongers is a US dollar millionaire when one in five lives in poverty. If I were a millionaire, I wouldn't be able to bear it. Instead, I'd spend my money helping to narrow the city's wealth gap.

Annette Kim Na-yeon, 15, Chinese International School


3. A meaningful life

If I were a millionaire, my lifestyle wouldn't change. I would still go to work, although I wouldn't have to worry about money. I would also spend time with my family and hang out with friends. I'd work hard to enjoy a meaningful life and continue to contribute to society.

Charlotte Chan, 15, German Swiss International School


4. Helping others

In short, my life would become a lot easier. But other than buying a big house and flashy car, I would try my best to help the less fortunate. It has always been something I've loved to do, and no amount of money is going to change that.

Tayyab Shahzada, 15, Sha Tin College


5. Expensive ice cream

The best thing about being a millionaire is that you don't have to worry about the price of things. Instead, you could focus on quality and personal choice. I'd be able to buy my favourite type of ice cream without ever worrying about the price.

Sophia Zhang, 10, Sha Tin Junior School


6.Living in a Korean drama

My life would definitely be way more luxurious than it is at the moment. But one downside is how hard it would be to trust others, in case they were plotting to steal my fortune. It would be like living in a cheesy Korean drama.

Helen Wong, 15, Sha Tin College


7. Knowledge is power

If I were a millionaire, I would buy loads of books to read. I'd also take as many extra lessons as I could, because knowledge is power! I wouldn't spend too much of my money on luxury items, but I'd probably travel around in an air-conditioned limousine.

Jacqueline Chan, 16, Marymount Secondary School


8. Rolling in a Rolls

Needless to say, my life would change drastically if I were a millionaire. I wouldn't have to scrabble in my wallet for that extra 50 cents for the minibus ever again - I'd just roll in a Rolls!

Anirudh Kannan, 14, South Island School


9. Private paradise

Private plane, private beach, private cruise … all things private! Living in a crowded, bustling city like Hong Kong can be all too overwhelming. But if I were a millionaire, I'd escape to a peaceful place and enjoy my own company. That would be my paradise.

Cammy Lam Sze-ning, 17, SKH Chan Young Secondary School


10. Lord of the money

If I were a millionaire, I would buy 100 hectares in New Zealand and a lot of Lord of the Rings merchandise. I would then live there like a hobbit for a year - or maybe forever.

May Huang, 17, Chinese International School

to contact any illuminati agent because they have eat my money.One day I
across a post of someone giving a testimony, thanking a man called adamson of
being helping him to join the illuminati brotherhood, then I look at the
man email and the phone number that was written there, it was a nigeria
number I was afraid to contact him because a nigerian agent eat my 5,000$
and go away with the money then I was very tired, confused and I decided to
contact the person that was given the testimony and i called him and I
communicated with him on phone calls before he started telling me his own
story about when he wanted to join, he told me everything to do, then I
made up my mind and called the agent called adamson and he told me everything
to do, and I was initiated, surprisedly I was given my benefit of being a
