So after over 6 years in HK were moving. I have mixed feelings about this. In many ways its a very frustrating place which is hard to live in. Housing and schooling are so disproportionately expensive. Wages do not increase in line with rent increases. You'll constantly be moving, unable to call any place home. I work 6 days per week (half day on Sat) from 7am til 6pm (min and with travelling time (as you will need to live far away from HK island if you want somewhere livable) meaning little time with family and to relax. When i first came the shear number of people constantly bumping into me was an issue, however you get used to this along with all of the other HK traits which are hard to deal with. Ultimately we're leaving as a) we'd never be able to afford to buy a house, b) job security is none existent, c) I don't like the worsening political situation and d) I want fun, space and freedom.
