    A busker or two would help the short walk feel less painful

    As for taking the overground route, for me it depends on when in the year it is. If it's during the hot humid summer, as soon as you come out of the MTR station it's like a warm wet duvet slaps you full in the face. Nice if there's a small breeze in the evenings, but definitely not during the afternoons.

    I was more keen on getting a place on the island to avoid stressing myself while commuting (I am very impatient). however, with the budget I have (15k) and the must-have criteria I need, I could hardly find any property for rent that meets my need. so, I had to tolerate the commuting in exchage for the must-haves

    thanks everyone~ for all your valuable insight.

    now I will do more research on rentals at different area

    Or you could learn to be more patient and leave home earlier for the commute.

    buses would be less reliable in terms of punctuality right?

    Oh man, this city will get on your nerves real quick if you are prone to those kind of outbursts. If you don't want a daily meltdown, maybe...um...you should reconsider moving to HK?

    that's disappointing to hear I thought Hong Kong is all about fast paced and efficiency.
    my own country is probably worse :sly:

    It is fast paced and efficient in...certain areas. But not so much in other areas, so the city will pissed you off if you are prone to be so impatient and explosive in temper.
