My luggage needs to go on a diet

In the interest of preserving my own dignity, I shall not disclose the extent to which I prepared to pack today. Suffice it to say I wrote down every item of clothing I own and now know such things as the weight of my entire wardrobe (divided by category), the average weights of bundles of specific garments, and that it takes about twenty wire hangers to weigh a pound.
I shan't blather on about details, but without toiletries, books and other knick-knacky-non-clothing items accounted for yet, my luggage needs to lose about ten pounds...

Don't go crazy packing clothes. You can buy clothes inexspensively in HK. You might want to pack things that are going to make you comfortable and feel at home. You may want to consider leaving some of the things easily replaced.

Hey, Frank's right, HK is a great place to buy clothes really cheap. Most western items are available. We bought basic toiletry items while there to bring back to mainland. Another bonus is that US $ is worth more there than on the mainland. You should be just fine. Happy Packing!
