Commands are forecast to slow considerably next year so donít plan on a quickie.

As a single 40yo youíll survive on a FO wage as long as you donít have kids before you get a command. When you look at the cash here, divide it in half then convert it to your home currency to get an idea of what cost of living is like here. Eg youíll pay CAD$25/kg for grated cheese that may or may not last til the stated expiry due to dodgy shipping.

Lots of people are reducing their commitments to HK so they can resign quickly if the looming cost cutting gets nasty.
