Taiwan is Taiwan, China is China... oh sorry lets not go there....
In the states, there are lotsa tracks, but products are expensive... here in HK, we only have 3 outdoor tracks, but goods are cheap..... But then again, we don't have jamba juice and in and out burger joints..

I actually lived in Cleveland for 4 years, didn't realize we had a world class track around the corner!

It's China's business, not mine


I would like more fast food places to select from than Mcds and Kfc though. At least the beer is cheap here
