Having lived in Hong Kong for about a year, I have gradually come to understand the good and bad aspects of the city. This time, I would like to introduce something that I really like in Hong Kong.
That is pocket tissues. You might think that pocket tissues are the same everywhere, but the ones in Hong Kong are different in terms of appearance and quality compared to those in Japan.
I would like to introduce them to those who are reading this article, so please give them a try.
Hong Kong’s Pocket Tissues
This is Hong Kong’s pocket tissue.
Most manufacturers in Hong Kong produce pocket tissues like this.
The left one is the Japanese tissue, and the right one is from Hong Kong. It has become quite compact in size, right?
While Japanese pocket tissues are soft, Hong Kong’s pocket tissues are firm. They are thicker than the ones in Japan.
Comparing it to an iPhone 11, it looks like this. It’s compact, making it easy to put in your bag. It stays firm, so it doesn’t get messy inside your bag.
They can even stand on their own.
The opening looks like this. The transparent part acts as a tape, allowing you to close it when not in use.
This is the tissue itself. The material is quite different from the ones in Japan. It’s closer to a paper napkin.
It’s folded very small and expands like this when opened.
When you use it, you’ll notice that the stiff paper has a double-layer structure. When you need to wipe up spills or messes, using Japanese tissues can be worrisome, but with Hong Kong’s tissues, you can confidently clean up.
