HK isn't as bad as Qatar when it comes to the trapping of individuals. It's always possible to come back pack up properly without having to ditch outport and tell the wife to pack her bags.

airdualbleedfault is on point. You're free to leave, and if you don't, you have no one else to blame but yourself. It remains a mystery to me why anyone would be bonkers enough to stick it out.

Stockholm Syndrome or copious Kool Aid consumption perhaps?

Stockholm sounds nice. I might go there for a holiday.

But I much prefer Bordeaux over Kool Aid. I could give you some recommendations, but I am afraid with your new salary you won't be able to afford them.

The Bordeaux that you drink STW will be spoiled from the summer heat as it’s sits outside Park n Shop waiting to the stacked in the Yau Me Tei store.

I loved that Bordeaux that had simplified chinese stamped on its label.

Seeing dairy products and wine sitting outdoors on the footpath in 30 degree heat always impressed me with ‘Asias World City’

I heard one pilot was sent back from the failed lax temp base (because that's what it is, isn't it?), resigned and got a one word reply.

The head of “The Chocolate Cookie Gang” getting back to Brisbane should come as no surprise.

ASAP, various bases in mainland China
ICAO ELP 4 + fluent Mandarin

Which airline, any guesses? The CAE job posting keeps that hidden. Interesting to see a targeted headhunt...

ELP 4 and fluent Mandarin. Great priorities. Trust there won’t be an unseemly rush to Sichuan, despite the excellent cuisine.

You can always go to Sri Lanka, 100k only, chop chop, the tea is good.
