Thanks again everyone for your useful examples.
Jimbo, hughb2000 and Mat, when you mentioned transportation cost, is it for one person only?
Carang, thanks for your clarification. We don't have children so I think our food budget can be lower.
I was looking through the article "Cost of Living Hong Kong Style". It doesn't list the expenses for pets. Can anyone tell me how much it costs to buy a package of cat food (1 kg)? Do Science Diet exist in Hong Kong--coz we would only allow our cat to eat Science Diet. What about cat litter? And vet's visits? One more thing (perhaps a strange question to some of you): Our cat has been taking birth control pills since she was little coz she's never been sterilized. Does anyone know if vets give out pills to cats in Hong Kong? If such pills don't exist in HK, maybe we have to take her to an operation here, which she's not going to like
Have a nice weekend, everyone!
