Transition Arrangements soon over

The transition housing arrangements will soon cease… Where will people go? Uk? Us? Aus? NZ?

Tuen Mun, Yuen Long, Tin Shui Wai and Fanling. Kam Tin has similar mountain views to Mid levels I hear.

Three things will then be true:
1. You will have the best COS of anyone !
2. You will still NOT be able to bid on your roster.
3. You will NOT get the leave you requested !!

Turn out the lights when you leave

A commuting package is being prepared and revamped / revised as we speak ...
One base only available - Wuhan.
No rent subsidies however rents in the high tech microbiological research area extremely affordable with discount overnight minibus commute service already arranged and approved by the Jellyfish himself

What’s the schedule for the withdrawal of the housing package / schooling etc?
I know one or two guys with big loans on boats and mortgages. Will their life in hk still be sustainable on the reduced package? I dont get the feeling anyones going anywhere. Maybe Bahrain?
Im ex dragon, and glad im ex hk , period .

Try Sham Shui Po or Mongkok for more affordable rentals...

Most will stay. Renters will downsize, owners will extend the mortgage.

I think when they downsize from 1500sqft to 400sqft they’ll only last a few months. I wouldn’t be surprised if quite a few get divorced because of it.

Or maybe three families can share a 900 sq ft three bedroom apartment? It’s going to be fun assimilating.

350 sq/ft? Bloody Luxury. I'm in 280' with 28 years in the company. I had a bigger flat as an S/O.

I sounded proud of that Dabz?? Life was going great until COVID hit and the subsequent base closures. So here I am (for now) and no, not divorced Oddball. Anyhow, please speculate wildly... don't let me stop you. Glad things are peachy for you boys.
