    Very suitable reminder for this thread.

    Well, 80M will allow me to leave HK twice at the very minimum.

    With Trump imposing taxes from China, those who works in the manufacturing arena, i think it's time to step away and move away from HK-China and towards South East Asia...

    I would certainly not be betting on Trump and the politicians in SEA.

    10 years since our arrival in HK, can't believe! numerous times hubby suggested leaving and it was always me who insisted on extending the contract. had been in love with this crazy city for soooo long but recently realised that I might look for another love soon so green light for hubby and we will leave as soon as a good option opens up. will miss Geo though...

    It depends - is 'no plan to leave at the moment' viewed as positive or negative? Everyone would have a different answer to this - for me it is negative, as I pointed out in my post earlier in the thread. If most who chose that option share my negative feelings, then the overwhelmingly majority are probably planning to leave at some point in the future. On the other hand, perhaps it shows the danger of using simple polls to make policy! Life is usually much more nuanced.

    Been here since May 2018. We plan to get the F*** out of here next May 2019. HK is the most 'unliveable' city I have ever been to.
    It always smells disgusting here. The people are just beyond rude. Everything is severely overpriced. It's dangerously crowded.
    I can't wait to return to Australia and go to a normal quiet shopping centre with a properly functioning self serviced supermarket that doesn't involve waiting in line for 20 minutes. Or going to a furniture store and not see old Chinese men sleeping everywhere. Or having a BBQ in my backyard! What's a back yard you might ask? It's a large piece of private grass that is attached to your free-standing home. Just for you! Or maybe I'll go to a hygienic butcher that doesn't have pieces of rotting animal carcass hanging from rusty hooks and no refrigeration. Who knows.

    Yes! For the win!

    You figured this out by coming here? Next time you move to a place I suggest you look at some pictures. It may save you time, money, and frustration.
