Take a look at this website: Hong Kong eTransport
It gives you transport information and will highlight exactly how you can get from any point you want to consider to the office in Kwun Tong. The bus system in HK is second to none - you don't need to live close to an MTR to get around.
The Tung Chung area would be a good solution. Try looking at Seaview, Skyline and Caribbean Coast Estates. Caribbean Coast has Hong Kong's largest residential outdoor swimming pool, year round indoor pools,gym and club, BBQ area, children's play area, supermarkets and a mall at the MTR station which is nearby. All this can be yours for 20K or less.
What's funny to me is that most of the people that say 25k-35k isn't much are paying less than that themselves. For a couple with no kids, I think it's a fantastic housing budget!
Reading the thread from start to end, I find the tone of some posters, whether they are right or wrong, can be quite off putting and I can understand the op wanting to leave.

This thread is a classic example of where a sensitive and insecure OP meets the wrath of seasoned egoexpat posters. Oops, what a typo
That being said. Welcome to HK. It's a great place, but you gotta have a little thick skin to get used to the cultural differences which you can choose to either embrace or despise.

I think some people are unfairly being knocked for giving straightforward honest answers.
If you dont like the answer, dont ask the question in the first place.
First thing to learn when moving away from 'home' - be open to change!!
