    HK01 has some photos from the coverage of a HK->Manchester flight. A bit sad reading the interview with a local dad who is moving under the BNO scheme.

    Coming back to my earlier post... We just received the good news from Singapore Enterprise, our branch (regional) office is approved. I do have to say, Singapore is a bit more strict for setting up companies than HK. I thought being a listed company would be smooth sailing, but they did ask very detailed information.

    HK was my home for almost a decade, I will miss it. Planning to move by the end of May, beginning of June. Will most likely apply for PR before I leave...

    I lived in several European and Asian countries, I was always excited to move. Now I'm a bit less excited (and a bit scared), probably because I'm getting older, and it's sad to see what's happening to HK. Had some of the best years of my life here...

    Better apply ASAP. If you apply today, not sure it will be granted by end of May/beginning of June.

    Thats one of the of things Im really looking forward to, going on holiday with my Fam to some nice sunny beach city, drink some cold drinks, eat good food and enjoy.

    Evening dining has reopened just in time for me to be attending nearly weekly farewell dinners.

    Where do professionals with APAC roles go if they can’t speak Japanese and don’t like Singapore? We only wanted to stay in Asia 2-3 more years so relocating seems a huge pain. But we’re getting very lonely as all of our closest friends will be gone in the next few months. Mostly going back to the US or Europe rather than elsewhere in asia.

    Our back up has been Korea. Actually, it was our preference, as it sounded like a continuation of an exciting adventure, but boss said no, Korean business too much on the side. So, Europe it is. (But then boss said okokok, Korea is possible). Tokyo was only not possible due to pets/vaccine requirements, but I wasn't very keen to be in such a city-city, comparinh satellite of Tokyo with HK. Here, we're surrounded by green, trail out the door.

    Thank goodness it'll be a little easier to have good bye gatherings.

    And btw, learning the language is always a possibility!

    We're going to come back... I think we'll be plenty bored in a few years. If only me working, then Taiwan or more rural Japan, or Korea. Feel I got do cheated here in Hong Kong these last few years. I always wanted to go back for a visit to Korea, Taiwan, Japan... Hard to believe that used to be so easy and accessible.
