    Hey HKbuddy, would you mind to send me the contact details for the agent you worked with? I have been looking into this idea too, since I might be headed back to my home country within the next few months. I'm already living in DB, so it would be nice to just move to a different building.

    Cheers.

    I'd second the recommendation for Canada, having lived there for about a year. It's got all of the above, save for the wine. It's also got the benefit of a friendly immigration policy.

    The Ice Wine here in Canada is pretty famous

    On the way to work from Clear Water Bay while going past Kowloon Bay, I could not see TST or anypart of HK Island, Even Lion Rock was missing. Did the govt forget to turn the fans on to blow the Smog away.

    Mr & Mrs PDLM can buy my house; next to a very quiet pub, next to small slow moving river, next to a lot of tree, grass, train run by one an hour one mile away, shops three miles away, you can smell roast beef from side door of that pub.... I took a lot of snow scene last week, when a friendly police having tea with me in my study talking about nothing... thats all is in Somerset, with the population of 10 thousand, not enough people to share the cool fresh air.

    Sounds tempting - that would be going back to my routes - I was born in Taunton. Can't do the accent though.

    you'll love the story I often tell the others that I live in a house next to Bathpool Inn which I suspect to be the old Halfway Inn which Lord Monmouth fled with his loyal friend Carson stayed for the night, the next day they were caught and then, executed, with hundreds of other rebels from Bridgewater and nearby.

    Taunton is the base of revolutions just like Hong Kong 's ...
