It is somehow hard for us to discover the beauty of nature in Hong Kong, the hustle and bustle city. Only when we put the work or stress away temporarily, can we truly feel how beautiful the place we are living is. As a pessimistic person, I often get stressed easily.

Labor sectors estimate the number of job seekers entering the labor market annually at around 700,000 and 800,000, which is considered a huge number compared to the production capacity of the Egyptian economy (Ghoneim, Ahmed).
