I know housing is expensive so that one can be ticked off the list. What I would like to know is:- general cost of living - supermarkets; utilities (including internet; landline; electricity, gas; water) Any ground rent (rates. community charges - in Italy we pay a monthly charge to the management of the apartment complex currently paying Euro 250 per month on top of rent) Lifestyle as a teacher with a child - is there plenty to do? Football, museums, out and about Housemaid (or Ayi) monthly cost possibly live-out part-time. Is it possible to share an Ayi? Can't afford HK Island so looking at New Territories or Lantau Island or Kowloon - will I be cutting myself off? Can I get clothes and shoes made? I used to live in Shangers - so is there a fabric market? What is it like working for the 'Foundation?' What questions should I ask at interview on Friday? Only very brief experience of PYP! (1 year) My motive for going there is career development plus a bit of saving to pay off UK mortgage within 3 years - so will I be able to? I would be grateful of any advice, snippets of useful information, do's and don'ts. I'm happy where I am but frustrated at the lack of CPD and opportunities - is this a good reason to move? Most important element - are people happy in HK?
