A hutongster is a Westerner who has moved into one of Beijing's historic Hutong believing they are living the latest vogue. They're China's version of London's yuppies in the 1980s. They're direct descendents of homo sapiens and a close cousin of trustafarians, a name given to rich kids who live off daddy's trust fund while smoking marijuana all day with little desire to work in the real world.
A true hutongster has normally spent a "summer" working for a small NGO saving wombats in Africa and now works in the media industry harboring delusions that their memoirs of being the first trendsetter to live in a hutong will be original.
Who is the white rasta-looking kid thinking he is Chinese? Oh He must be a Hutongster!
