I'll be living in corporate housing in Kennedy Town for the first 30 days and then likely moving to the mid-levels (i.e. anywhere near Bowen Road as I am an avid runner).

    Anyhow, I'm madly excited but am curious about some aspects of ex-pat social life. If anyone could give me the down-and-dirty that would be great! Let me know things re: ease of making friends, dating life (since I am single), and all that good stuff. I'll be working long hours most of the time but will still always find time for a proper G&T!

    Cheers!
    Hi there,

    i have only just got here myself (little over 3 weeks now).

    I too am an avid runner. How often do you run in a week?

    Give us a bell if you want to run round bowen road as there is a trail there.

    Speak to you later maybe.

    Hairstylist

    Congragulation! I am excited for you. I moved here couple months ago from Toronto Canada to start my new life here as well. As a hairstylist from aboard, I am used to all types of caucasian hair. I am located right in the center of LKF, which all expats hangout and network...
    I work at Goldlion Salon on the 2nd floor; You will get a discount when you mention my name 'Charles'. Salon number is 25267710/ or my cell 95753496.
    I have been a hairstyist for 23 years, great with color, highlights and cuts.....
    Good luck on your move and travel safe!

    good for you then! thats really good to hear! I was only assuming you'd like to try n mix it up a little since you're a foreigner.

    Hong Kong though is LOADED with lots of halfers. The ones i met (guys & girls) were foreign so they spoke perfect english. I'm pretty sure you could strike your luck with one of them.

    How much I run depends on what I'm training for. Right now, 35-40. Marathon training means 55-60. Miles, that is. I'll give a shout-out when I get out there; I'll need to find some good running routes!

    35-40 miles, you mean that much per week.

    That sounds good to me just holla me when you are in town.

    Take it easy then,

    speak later
