Thank you everyone for you warm welcome.
Hong Kong is a beautiful city, it is very small (1,054 km2 (407 sq mi) but has a population of 7 million, the night view of the Victoria Harbour is
spectacular. I didn't go to the Olympics but I watched it live at home.
Where I used to work, I came across people from America, Australia, Britain, New Zealand, India, a lot of different countries. Some of them have been
living here for over 20 years, some of them come here to work for 2 years or so. HK people usually speak English especially the younger generations
but it also depends on which area you go.
Everything is relatively cheap but house prices are crazy, a lot of us can't afford to buy a flat. A small flat (around 400 sq feet) in general could
cost about anywhere from 500k - 1 million up HKD (around 103,223USD - 129,028USD) depending on the area.
We used to have a Governor of HK before the 97 handover, since then we have a Chief Executive.
There are quite a lot of local restaurant opens 24 hours a day, and a lot of convenient stores open 24/7.
This is a view of HK in general.
