Here's what transpired today. The recruiter gave a final offer of 45k, and kept insisting I take the offer now, which I once again refused to accept. He still hadn't talked to the client. While I was talking to him, the client (their dept head) sent me an email, asking whether the recruiter had a discussion with me & when I am arriving to HK. When I told him I ain't coming at 45k, he requested me to wait for 30 mins, & he will call me. I finished my call with the recruiter & got back to cooking lunch. And then the client called me directly, in about 20 mins, said you are coming to HK - made an offer of 75k, company provided lease for an apt & a full relocation package & support with the move.
I guess I'll be in HK by Nov end. I am glad I found this forum & asked you guys instead of listening to the recruiter. Thank you everyone for your help. Much Appreciated.!!!
