You guys are just getting old......
I remember when............you finish as you wish.......
Jump on a one way flight to the UK. Then see how long it takes for you to book a one way flight the other way ! I'm moving over to HK (finally) next month and can't wait. As a regular visitor since the mid 90s it has never lost its shine.
About 9 months intensively Sue. The whole process is well over 2 years since conception. I'm patient though moving the date 3 times (plus 3 visas) has been frustrating to say the least. I was almost at the point where I would have needed to apply for a new passport before requesting yet another work visa. At least this place has been a revaluation for research. Visiting is one thing, living completely different.
- taxi flagfall was $6.50
- a pack of smokes was $8
- living 25 storeys up was unusual, even by Hong Kong standards
- the cross-harbour ferry took five minutes longer
- you needed a coin purse for public transport (well, except the $100 MTR ticket)
- there were only 3 MTR lines and you could easily get a seat at 10 am
- you could take your car on the ferry
- you would ask the flight attendant whether the plane was landing over the sea or the city
- the biggest danger of bank/jewellery store robberies came from poorly gun-trained police officers
- Keith and Deborah were the "it couple" on Pearl
Four years is nothing, mate.
