What time is the OP going to start work ? Do any of us know ?
Maybe he/she starts work at 10:30am in the morning ? which would be a very easy commute to work, after the peak hour rush ? That negates any traffic concerns, if this is the case.
Getting home after 11pm would also be a breeze home by cab, very quiet roads and a complete lack of traffic at that time of night.
If the OP is going to work late hours, wouldn't it benefit them most, by having a very pleasant living environment, during the days they are not working, away from the concrete jungle that he/she spent most of their time in, as a bit of a break?
I am only trying to help. It's all good

Nah, from another post, I think (if I remember correectly) it's a big 4 accounting firm (so work location is CKC, IFC, Prince's Bldg or PP1) probably AD grade, official hours 8:30 to 5:30, which in practice means 9:00-9:15 to whenever. I think going to work is worse than getting home from work.
Going to work, your head is spinning with planning your day and work issues, at night, if I am not driving, I am dozing off on the one hour commute back to Ma On Shan on the 681
For the record, I think you have been very very very very very helpful!!!

$300/day is probably cheaper than the all-in cost (parking spaces, fuel, servicing, depreciation, etc) of running a car, plus you can drink.
Having a car in HK will almost always be a luxury rather than the cheapest way of getting around.
And yes, driving in from Ma On Shan everyday cost me around HK$300 in parking, tunnel fees and petrol...., but at least I can swear at all the crappy drivers and that helps me relieve stress and tentsion....
