Well, I think I mentioned it on another thread, but after a change of plans I'm leaving tonight (Cathay direct to Manchester) for a few months. Combination of family medical situation, flexible part-time freelance work and 'relaxed' quarantine rules meant that it made sense to get out for a while now, rather than my earlier plan of leaving for good in the summer. I do expect to come back, and depending on personal and social conditions at the time, I might stay another few months, or I might do a pack-and-run and leave ASAP...
Quite interesting documentaries
That's a great documentary series.
Since this is an expat forum we concentrate on other expats leaving HK but intelligent and community minded people like the lady in the documentary are the real loss for HK society.
Well, I'm out and signing off.
I've moved a lot in my lifetime, but my departure from here has honestly been the most emotional.
When I first arrived I found HK to be a bit soulless. It took me a few years and events here to love the city. But in the end I felt that the city I loved was being taken away. I could not stay an continue witnessing the slow decline.
Maybe my feelings about the future are wrong and I'll come to regret my leaving. I hope so.
Maybe with how things are going in HK we will see a flood of mainlanders in the future. A lot of discussions online mention HK as a stepping stone to run (润) from the mainland.
