Shirley Zhao, why are you such a dumb ass reporter?? Mr. Tso requested to be anonymous and you basically divilged all his information, including his age, residence, purchase date, and household income.
E.g. 
Mr Tso, who wished to remain anonymous, said he and his wife bought a flat of about 200 sq ft in High One in Cheung Sha Wan for about HK$4 million in 2014.
“We needed a home after getting married,” Tso, an office worker in his 30s, said.
The couple pay around HK$18,000 a month – about 40 per cent of their combined salary – for a 30-year mortgage, he said.
