Yes, it sure is!  It is a "Monkey Moth" also known as the Ligustrum Silk Moth (BOMBYCOIDEA, Eupterotidae, Apona ligustri).  More info at http://ccs-hk.org/DM/butterfly/Bombicid/Apona-ligustri.html.  And no, this is not one of the "silk worm" larvae that eats mulberry and produces silk for clothes!  Also, see:  http://www.hkwildlife.net/viewthread.php?tid=35932
