    I think it's because Hong Kong is becoming such an exception. The rest of the world is trying to figure out how to live with Covid, we're stuck in a society which persecutes those who catch the disease.

    We're stuck in a society which persecutes those who register the infection....and all their friends, family, colleagues.....

    Thank you everyone for all of your help with everything. We’re still running the company, but we are outsourcing and minimizing. We’re off to America to start anew. You’re all the absolute best, even when we fight a bit 😉 I hope everyone who stays gets the hk they hope for and everyone who wants to finds the escape they need. I’ll miss this beautiful city and the good hearts that we saw everywhere here.

    Perhaps the lack of fresh people coming to HK and the creative classes leaving is a unique experience in a big developed city. It is new and therefore news.

    Best wishes and 'congrats' on pulling the trigger.

    After being back in the US, it's clear it's time to put HK in the rearview mirror. Life is good and beautiful here. And despite the high covid counts in California, one doesn't feel the impact of thousands of local cases here as much as one would feel the impact of 10 cases in HK hitting daily life in HK.

    Promotion... and move to Taiwan. (I wouldn't put it down solely to the quarantine since Taiwan still has that too).

    I finally handed in my notice effective Jan 31st, last day Mar 31st
    1 month for MPF so end of Apr should have money in my bank account.
    Find a lovely island to enjoy 2-3 weeks of long overdue vacation, laying on the beach with a nice cold beer in my hand and scratching my nuts with the other hand

    Then go to UK (look for house / look for job / look for school for my kid)

    Next adventures awaits.
