Many thanks for the advice. Sounds like DB is the way to go. The whole stepford thing doesn't worry me because I am not the slightest bit cool or hip to begin with and so I would have to catch up let alone keep up!
Oh re schools: I keep seeing that it is very difficult to gain a spot at DB and it seems expensive about 10K per child per year (Aus$) plus debentures is there a quality alternative ? (that is why I was looking into causeway bay schools) I just worry because my youngest is due to start school next year and i don't want to put her at a disadvantage when we retuen home in a couple of years time.
Aside from schools and where to live is there any other major things I would need to take into consideration financially or otherwise?
I suppose what I should ask is are people by and large happy living in HK and would they reccommend the experience to other families?
Also we are negotiating his contract currently and are curious what others would say say a family would need to live comfortably per month in a 3 bedroom place all things considered.
