I'm in the last phase of packing and getting ready to move to Asia. My name is David,
and I'm a 43 year old computer tech in Northern California. My fiance's name is Weng and
she's a 32 year old Filipina from Isabela province, the Philippines, working as a maid in
Hong Kong. We've been together since 2001.
I'm planning to move to Asia permanently, first to Hong Kong for a couple of years, and
then on to the Philippines once our house is built. I'm moving this May, or sometime until
the end of August at the latest. I've been to both Hong Kong , and to the Philippines
(Luzon), and I already know what the conditions are like. I've gotten my belongings
narrowed down to what I'll ship in about 6 balikbayan boxes, and some furniture I'm
storing here in Northern California until we need it.
I have a lot of questions, so I'll start with airline tickets first. When a person is moving
over to Asia, either Hong Kong or the Philippines, do you have to get a round trip ticket
(with another destination on it, even if you don't end up using it), or can you buy a one
Secondly, what are the steps I need to take for the move over? I'll post this message on
the boards that I belong to, to get as much information as possible. For those that post a
response, thank you for your help, I really appreciate it.
