Expenses?

My water bill for last month totalled HK$38, electricity HK$288, phone HK$200 pcm which includes 10gig data (pay as you go, intl roaming not incl).
Rental 13k for a beautiful shoebox (400sq m) in Soho. You are out most of the time so not much more is required (for me at least).

The going out and drinking gets you.... If you didn't drink you'd be able to save heaps - by why on earth would you want to do that?? It's Hong Kong, live the 'dream'....

400 sq m in SoHo for $13K?

Please tell me where, Do you mean 400 sq ft perhaps?

If it is just $13K a month for that sized apartment, I've been horribly misled about the value of my place. Damn.

Girlfriends - doubt they'd be too impressed. Thankfully I'm not in that boat.

The wife is happy with it tks Blade. Kids, 400sq feet? Nah. NO chance they'll ever fit in there. Would have to move before that happens. That's a given.

And I guess thats the heart of the matter..In HK you need options..I came as a 25 year old 15 years ago,stayed 400sq ft ,moved up and out as required by family commitments..And thats the heart of the matter .In HK you need to be supported for housing as your situation changes..
