    Sometimes I don't understand people's problems.
    Yup the cynic in me seems to think its just idle boasting about what package they can negotiate.

    Maybe I can turn around and do the same in a few months time and ask whether I can cope with a salary of $2000000 per annum after tax

    whoa! 90,000 a month!? after tax!? not including bonus!?

    that's totally not enough! you could really only get like 10 prostitutes a day, for everyday of the month!

    Get them to do what? And you could get a lot more if you look down Temple Street

    Well Jimbo, the cynic in you is wrong.

    My post was a genuine enquiry for information.
    I had hoped that the more information i had posted, the more of a accurate response i would have received.

    HK was not on my list of places to work, and as such the company has to pay extra to tempt me there.

    Maybe if you increased your social skills by reducing your sarcasm and stopped being bitter....you might be able to secure a higher paid role

    Or, in Jimbo's case, any role at all!

    Indeed, but if the HK expat community is anything like the one in Dubai, then networking is key, And he is not doing a good job of selling himself IMHO.
