I know someone who has been through the same. Seems New Zealand got their system adjusted to HK issued CARDS recently.
HK is the only member country to issue apec cards to non citizen permanent residents.
My friend got refused check-in at hk airport by CX. Ouch..this was 4 years ago. Calls made to NZ consulate failed to confirm that Card is good.
Next visit 2 years ago was a breeze. His attempt to secure a visa in HK was refused as he is holding an APEC card.
In summary you should be fine now.
