Please stand back from the doors. This may seem like a stupid thing to write about, but the MTR is actually a crucial aspect to the Hong Kong experience.

I know now how to say “Please stand back from the doors” in Chinese, and will forever regard those six words as a piece of nostalgia in my life.
