They both live in a extremely crowded studio where they share with 22 other roomates. The Studio's acutal living space is only about 53.7 square meters (about 578 square feet) but was devided into 24 separate compartments by wooden board. Each compartment is only enough to put a bed inside but its monthly rent is over 2,000 Hk dollars ($333), It is comoonly known in Kong Hong as "coffin homes" where residents are mostly low come earners.
