    I guess some of us just find such things interesting! And of course with the nit-pickers on this site, you know you have to be super accurate with any info posted, so carrying a stop-watch around and double-checking every walk/bus/cab/MTR from A or B is of course essential. Approximations are really just not on.

    Next time I leave my home I have to remember:

    - bring camera (to take pictures of the cars not well parked)
    - bring a recorder (to make sure I can reissue later in case of dispute what people told me)
    - bring a stop watch to ensure I have a very accurate timing of all my moves

    Speaking of commute times, I have some interesting information for bryant.english.

    Door-to-door from AIA Building, on Electric Road in Fortress Hill to my apartment in DB in an hour and five minutes, well past peak time public transport frequencies by MTR and bus (which is kind of like taking the long way around).

    What do you have to say to that?

    I dont think the peak is a good place to live actually. Unless you drive, otherwise it could be quite troublesome. And the tourists...:-\ If you want to have good air quality, go and check out Discovery Bay and Sai Kung.:-)

    Depending on where you chose to live the peak is a real delightwell away from the frenzy of town and an opportunity to breath some cleanerair. Great walks and good transport. You will still have need for a car thoughas taxis may not pass you by, just depends on where you live.
