    I'd say working 6 days is as common as working 5 days a week here, long hours though and not much annual leave.

    And we have a major problem persuading most of our local staff to use their holiday allowance, even if it is only 15 days. They often ask if they could be paid in lieu.

    I was still in office till 7-30pm (left a bit earlier than usual to start packing). Many Canadians don't realize how spoilt they are, while in Canada I should mention. And yet you (fiana) wish to come to HK, the land of long working hours? It's not yet August - so not too late yet! As for me, just two days before AC16 carries one to a much-needed break (call it vacation) in TO area, though I hit the ground running - Off to Monteal and QC on 401 the evening of the afternoon I land at Pearson - and it's my turn driving first!
