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!

This spider doesn't look like it wants to kill me as badly as some of the other ones...
