The Aberdeen tunnel gets jammed as soon as something happens in Happy Valley or Causeway Bay (accident, demonstration, Rugby 7 this weekend...) - it is a real pain in the neck.

In HK, geographical proximity is no guarantee of short and convenient transportation - suggest you open up your horizons (hic!) and consider good places in Kowloon and New Territories where you can find places, with shorter and more comfortable commutes, in spite of longer distance.
