    Good on you

    Rather than waiting for hope to happen you grab life by its balls

    When you are in Europe in a month's time you'll ask yourself

    WTF did you wait so long

    I think when Putin switches off the heating in winter I'll wonder why the fuck I ever left Hong Kong! Better find a home with geothermal heating!

    Seeing more people in my closer circle preparing to leave i.e. booked and counting down. I have to say while I’m still very much pro staying it’s getting harder with each passing week or day in some cases. I’m doing not much more than cursory glances at alternatives at this stage but that’s still a move from my previous position

    Any others similar?

    Don't you have hope?

    According to some, hope will save us all.

    I am also finally on my way out. After quite some back and forth my company has transferred me to Singapore, half of my team will follow over the next few month.
    Will spend a few weeks in Europe, catching up with friends and family.
    I will miss Hong Kong, friends, this great city and the community here.
    So much looking forward to breathing normality again!

    Well done C, there's an abundance of hope outside HK

    This is typically what is thought by people who have never had to actually live there

    Yes similar. We all have a limit of course. None of the plan Bs are very attractive at the moment, and the few months I've just spent in the UK reminded me of that! We'll probably give it to the end of the years so we can see what direction of travel the new administration takes. We really don't want to leave, at great expense and negative impact for our careers, to then have things start to open up a few months later...
