This is a great thread.
I’m a new expat to HK and to see peoples’ budget really helps.
Projection of budget after 2 months in HK for my wife and I (no kids, late 20s):
Food+Entertainment, etc: 15,000 (I hope this figure is closer to 10,000)
MPF: 1,500 (yes to me this is an expense/investment as it decreases my monthly net income)
Utilities: 2,000 (estimated higher to give myself some room)
Cell x2: 600
Commute x2: 1,000
Home internet: 200
*travel not included.
The food/entertainment is on the higher side for my personal liking, still trying to find/figure out decent restaurants without spending too much.
$600 for cell phones sounds like a waste of money. At least for one you should get one of those $88 plans.
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life
Hi Cendrillon, which telco do you use for this amazing price? I switched to China Mobile but am still paying a lot for only 3GB --> Mobile (2 lines 5 GB LTE) $192
Oh I see. Thanks for your reply!

I don't like HKBN as a wireless provider - I find the prioritization annoying so I am switching out.
