    Nikmatul Rosidah Dobson is one of Hong Kong’s most popular YouTubers. But instead of videos produced in the city’s official languages, English or Cantonese, the shy housewife’s clips use the Bahasa spoken in her native Indonesia. Rosidah now has more than 1.4 million subscribers to a YouTube channel started as a hobby before it grew into a collection of more than 1,400 videos of her everyday activities. People across Southeast Asia and around the world tune in to see her at work in her home in a village in Hong Kong’s New Territories, as she cooks meals and raises her three children with Canadian husband Paul Dobson.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
