Hard to see but it definitely looks to be a tarantula. Post some photos once its a bit bigger and someone might be able to ID it... Hong Kong is not my area of expertise.

Haha I was thinking Phlogiellus looked possible with those big furry legs but like I said...I don't know a whole lot about HK's bugs. Good luck with it!

That is normal, it is probably just molting. They are extra sensitive during that time so they seal up their burrows for safety.

Hopefully in a few days you will have an even bigger spider :)
