What is your ideal summer job?

What is your ideal summer job?

We asked our readers what cool summer job they'd like to try, and these are our favourite answers …

1. Train young brains

Tutoring kids is not a bad choice. Tutoring not only enhances our own knowledge, but also means we can stay in air-conditioning the whole time!

Sundeep Kaur, 17, St Margaret's Girls' College

2. Ice is nice

The coolest place, literally, to escape Hong Kong's summer heat has to be the ice rinks. So it'd be pretty cool to be a skate cop!

Tinaz Mirza, 17,South Island School

3. Unleash my inner carny

Working at an amusement park is probably the best summer job ever. I've always wanted to control those huge roller-coasters and wear the fancy uniforms. Also, being a kid at heart, what's better than working at what is basically heaven for children? Nothing, that's what.

Christy Cheung, 16, St Paul's Co-educational College

4. House of mouse

Disneyland, duh. How cool would it be to bring joy to families from all around the world, and help make unforgettable memories for someone's childhood.

Cheung Yuk-man, 17, St Margaret's Girls' College

5. E-I-E-I-O

I'd love to help out at my father's organic farm. I enjoy working hard under the scorching sun, watering the vegetables, picking the perfectly ripe tomatoes, and digging into the ground to look for potatoes. The scent of the vegetables, weed and mud mixed together is very refreshing.

Andrew Leung Tsz-fung, 16, Immaculate Heart of Mary College

6. McD for free

As I'm only nine years old, I'm not allowed to get a summer job. But, if I could, I'd work at McDonalds in exchange for free French fries, hamburgers, ice creams and all the foods I'm banned from eating, because my mum considers them unhealthy.

Edward Zhang, 9, Sha Tin Junior School

7. Set to be a vet

I would love to work with pets! What's better than being face-to-face with cute tortoises, cats, dogs and hamsters all day?

Audrey Low, 12, Diocesan Girls' School

8. Crazy cafe

I'd love to work as a Starbucks barista so that I could purposely misspell people's names and feed off their dissatisfied faces.

Bakhita Fung, 14, Island School

9. Crafting critiques

If there are two things I absolutely enjoy doing, it's lazing around and writing, so my perfect summer job would be writing food reviews! Not only would I get to try things I've never tried before, I'd also get to write about it! I'll happily go try new dishes, rate them, and let my inner Gordon Ramsay scream out.

Anushka Purohit, 15, Renaissance College

10. Happy scanning

I'd like to work as a cashier in a supermarket. It has been my dream since childhood to "doot" things.

Ruby Leung, 18, Maryknoll Convent School
