HK is my Home, will stay forever
Quite frankly, it is scary how similar the two situations are.
As far as I can see, HK is not headed anywhere good in the near to long term future. Unless you enjoy living in an overpriced suburb of Shenzen. I will finish my current work contract and be off... I do still love HK (especially my friends here) but it's quite depressing watching its transformation.
When people get nostalgic about the good old day they are referring to the golden age of HK cinema of the 70s and 80s. Back then HK had a thriving industrial sector and only 5 million people. By the 90s when I arrived HK had 6 million people. Now 20 years later we have nearly 8 million people. In any narrative about the so called decline of HK no one brings up this elephant in the room. HK has too many people, placing demands on everything. Yet any limits on population growth is never discussed? Why? Taboo subject? What is the statistics on monthly immigrant arrivals to HK? Thousands?
