I need help. I will be coming to HK from Canada within a month and my brain is almost dead. I have been searching for places to live every day since early September yet haven't come up with a good one. Today, just reading this forum, I realised I need to join and ask real people instead of wrestling with things all by myself. Here is my not-so-easy task. I have a dog, so my options are limited. I will work in Kowloon Tong and my son will have to go to Taikoo because that's the only school in HK that would accept a transfer student (seriously!). I've heard that Hong Lok yuen, Tai Po are dog friendly, but a bit far for my son or aren't they? I have been also thinking about discovery bay, park island (ma wan), goldcoast, sai kung, and all that. Nothing really fits our profile and I can't think any more. I will probably live in HK for more than 5 years (or forever), so want to find a place I can call home. Where would be ideal for us? Thanks!
