I purchased the camera in Hong Kong via Internet and now realising this is mistake - is there no way to change language still.
Camera manufacturers purposefully restrict their cameras destined for the 'home market' by limiting the language selection. This is to restrict gray market sales.

I see this question all the time and you are correct, unfortunately there is no way to remedy the issue. I wish I had a better answer for you.

If there is anything else I can do, please let me know,
