    This doesn't help Pink with the apt search, but I got here from NY two weeks ago - would be nice to get together with former New Yorkers and moan about leaving NY and expensive real estate, if nothing else!

    Yes, but only if your employer is happy to define part of your package as "housing allowance" and set up a system to ensure "adequate control" of the fact that you are actually spending it on housing...

    How do you think to learn Cantonese in Daily way?

    Welcome to Hong Kong ! Pink!

    I am not Sure you are a female or male. I am a chinese girl, 25 years old. I born in here and studied in here. Hong Kong is very small. I think of an idea if you want to learn the culture of hong kong, you can think of sharing a flat with me and let me teach you Cantonese.

    I am not meaning sharing the flat for even space. I Will just occupay a small room even not 100 sq ft enough .

    That will be convenience for you to email to me directly.

    Above is my email address. We can exchange the instant messeanger account in email.

    I would have less max budget. Hope you enjoy living in Here.
