Term for a Hong Kong immigrant who does not conform or assimilate to his or her new surroundings. They are prevalent in such coastal cities such as Vancouver and San Francisco. Although not necessarily a derogatory term, it can be used in a contemptuous fashion because Hongers generally refuse to integrate themselves into their new surroundings. They usually speak predominantly in Cantonese (not Mandarin, as that's the language of mainland China), and they can be easily identified by their fashions: "wacky" and/or dyed hair, black-rimmed glasses, metro fashion, and luxury European cars or Rice Rockets (inexpensive Hondas customized to top performance). Hongers also hang out in large groups of other Hongers.

Hongers do not necessarily have to immigrants from Hong Kong. They can sometimes just be Canadian-born or American-born Chinese who do not fit into any other segment of youth society. However, these are not true Hongers, just misfits and/or losers (if you can't speak Chinese, know nothing of Chinese culture, and were born in North America, you are NOT Chinese or Hong Kongese just because you're socially repulsive to the Whites, Blacks, Latinos, and other Asians in your community).
Aaron: That guy has copper-red hair spiked like Cloud Strife's, and he's yammering away in Chinese or something.

John: That guy's such a Honger.

Aaron: I don't mean to be racist, but damn, they're annoying sometimes.

John: Hey, I'm Chinese, and even I can't stand them. But everybody's entitled to their own pop culture.

Honger - condescending word for hongonese people, which are people from Hong Kong. Hongers usually like to dress homosexually (ie. Girls dressing like guys and vice versa). Their fashion is unique in the sense that they suck cocks and eat pussies. However, I do respect the fact that they actually have the confidence to wear their crap in public. Hongers drive hongonese cars made of crap and steel. Their language consists mostly of weird annoying sounds like "Ga", "Ooa", "Gamahha", "Lo", I could go on but you get the point. Hongonese or Cantonese is basically a language that should absolutely be banned from speaking in public places. As you can see, I have nothing against Hongonese people except the fact that they are gay, annoying, and plain unbearable! For all you hongers out there reading this, here's a message for you, please tone down your gayness and homoness, please! Some of us "normals" just want a nice quiet time in the park, mall, or any other public places you hongers like to invade. And also, please obey traffic laws you homo hongers. I once saw a honger almost hit an elderly because he was driving like a mad mofo! And again, I must restate that I have absolutely nothing against people from Hong Kong. I mean, c'mon, they're people too right? But sometimes people do things that are just plain wrong, such as wearing gay clothing...urg, i'm sorry for being repetitive, this just totally irks me like hell. And honger guys, man are they the worst at sports lol. They just plain suck. I must say this though, badminton and ping pong are not sports so don't say youre athletic if you're only good at those, please! Okay, I'm going to stop ranting now...but remember hongers, please TONE DOWN your gayness, a little bit is better than none. Maybe wear more normal clothing for a start, or obey more traffic rules, or speak more politely. That's all the advice i can give you hongers. You can thank me later in the future for changing you from being gay and unwanted in society to becoming more accepted and welcomed.
Hongers should tone down their attitude, gayness, unpleasantness, homoness, loudness, rudeness, unlawfulness, I could go on...but you get the point.

Hongers suck at sports, but they're good at gay games (ie. badminton, ping-pong, hoola hoops, etc.)

it's not so much to argue the points or to add on. but one must admit that this is the definition for the honger in your life that IS loud, annoyingly rich, cocky and inconsiderate. we ALL know that not every person from hk fits into that definition.

it's those who drive their nice cars without knowing how to freakin drive, dress like at 10 year old when they're 30, look down at u because your phone isn't the newest one inthe market, talk in their little groups in the middle of lecture loud enough for u to hear halfway across a 500 people hall....etc....that fits in.

i'm a honger myself, self admitted. i laugh at that definition because it's so true. i find it offending when people call me a honger (WHATWHAT i do NOT have problems colour coordinating my wardrobe)....but c'mon people....lighten up. learn to laugh at yourself and most likely u'll find u don't fall into that category of the annoying honger.
- honger kids who all have super nice super mod-d cars....and when u look in them none of them are stick. what a waste of cars
- mothers who dress in their kids clothes and have hello kitty cellphones. dear god.
- once again people who talk loud enough for the world to hear at the wrong times.
- please....learn the colour triangle....hot pink and hot purple and neon yellow really is quite an odd combo for clothing

A person from Hong Kong (not mainland China) easily identified by rude behaviour, bitchy girlfriend, and a shitty $5,000 Japanese car that's had $10,000 worth of modifications.
Look at that Honger with a 6 foot spoiler on the back of his Honda Civic!

Ok if you can get your hands on either a purse, bag or wallet, you can identify a honger

One dead givaway of 'hongerism' is that they have several bubble tea cards that say "buy 7 get one free!". Quite often, these places have really bad names, like 'numba one cafe' 'little elephant cafe' etc.

Also, their recepts, if they have lots of receipts from Richmond, from places like Yohann, Aberdeen and Daizo, this may signify a honger.

The pics they carry often signify hongerism. If they have pics in their expensive $2000 cell phones that aren't available in Canada, they are honger. If not, then they might not be as bad.

If they pics contain ppl in gay poses, such as the peace signs etc, they may be honger. If they have really slutty girls in them wif blond streaks in their hair, and no name brand clothes or fake clothes, then they are honger.
whoa! ur sucha HONGER!
