Hold on,

i can't hear you.

Okay, that's better.

Where are you guys?

No, I don't--

i don't know where that is.

I-- I don't--

i don't have GPS

on this phone.

Well, can

you just give me

directions from here?



Come on.

You okay?

Yeah. I'm just--

-couldn't help but, uh...

-Yeah. No, no, I'm fine.

I just--

i lost my friends.

And I have

no reception. So...

Where are you headed?

-Um, LAN kwai--

-LAN kwai fong.


-You need directions?

Yeah, that'd be great.

I don't--

I don't have GPS

on my phone.

Yeah, I heard.

So, it's easy.

-You just walk down

these stairs here, okay?


- Take a right on Elgin.


-And you go till

you hit the escalators.


Yeah, mid-level


Okay, what building?

No, they're outside.

Oh, like in the middle

of the street?


It's one of Hong Kong's

most famous sights.

The mid-level escalators.

-It's in all

the guidebooks.


-The mid-level escalators.

-Yeah, okay.

Okay? So you go up

two blocks,

you take a right

on Hollywood.

You know,

i think I'm just gonna--

I'll just ask someone

when I get off the escalators.

-Are you sure?

-Thanks. Yeah,

yeah, yeah.

I mean, I...

I can--

i can walk you there.

Mm, no.

-Thanks, though.




Just down

to the right.

-You lost already?

-Yeah, you know, it's--


it's just pretty

confusing down there.

Well, my offer

still stands.

Are you sure

I'm not taking you away

from anything?

-I don't wanna--

-it's fine.

It's a big

birthday party,

I doubt anyone will

miss me for five minutes.

So let me

just text somebody.


Good to go.

I really appreciate it,

-thank you so much.

-Don't mention it.

Don't mention it.

I'm Ruby,

by the way.

-Nice to meet you,

Ruby by the way.


-I'm Josh.


First time

in Hong Kong?

Uh, yes, it is.

I'm guessing

it's not yours.

No, I live here.

Where you from?


-Ah, cool.

-San Francisco?

-Nope, L.A.


And where

are you from?

-New York.




it's just so cliche

for new yorkers

to hate on L.A.

So have you ever been?

No, I never

saw the need.

What? You got something

against nice weather?

See there's something

very wrong with your city

when the only good thing

you have going for it

is the weather.

Okay, that's not

the only nice thing.

Yeah, I guess.

- If you like earthquakes.

-So this is soho.

-Just like New York.

-And London.

-Buenos Aires.

Apparently you're not a major

city unless you have a soho.

What does this

soho stand for?

South of Hollywood.

I wonder why L.A. hasn't

jumped on that bandwagon--

don't even start.

So what brings

you to Hong Kong?


-What do you do?

-I design toys.

-Well that's cool.

What kind?

Have you ever seen

those stuffed animals

that sing and dance?

My niece is obsessed

with this one toy.

It's a-- it's a beaver,

but it's--

-Justin beaver.



-Oh, my-- you?

-I designed that.





-That's pretty cool.


She's obsessed with one toy

and you designed it.


What else you got?

Um, let's see

i have, uh--

moos like Jagger.

It's a cow.


-Lady ba-ba.

-A sheep?

-A sheep. Mm-hmm.

-Where can i

get one of these?

-Um, I don't know.

If I see you next time

I'll just give you one.

Are you planning on

getting lost around here

in the near future?

Well now I know

who to call.

You don't even know

if I'm taking you

to the right place.

Yeah. My mother did

warn me

about talking

to random strangers,

in a foreign city.
