As most models know, model apartments can be pretty bad. And in Hong Kong, models apartments are renowned for being very small; however, they usually have a decent sized living area and small but functional kitchen. As well as their own bed in a separate room. Despite this, many models still complain about the lack of space.

Models: if you think your living situation is awful, please read this article on how families in Hong Kong slums try to get by each and every day. Not just for a two or three month contract.

"They are barely bigger than a toilet cubicle. Yet these depressingly cramped spaces serve as a kitchen, living room, dining room, bedroom, pantry and everything in between for their cooped-up inhabitants."

So take a moment and count your blessings. Your apartment isn't that bad.
