Have heard of many friends talking about stories living in HongKong as it's getting more and more crowded, normal people living a space like a small cage, not mentioning people seeking jobs in HongKong when they are from other countries, sometimes its' even harder!

I've seen places where people from on live in HongKong looks like, some could be as crazy as slums in India or other places. And as couple years ago HongKong go back to be a part of China, things got even crazier!

I don't think I'd like to live there. I've never been, but what I've seen of other asian cities it's not the healthiest place to live, both physically and mentally.

A book to stop you in your tracks.' Liverpool Daily Post 'An appealing mixture of compassion and adventure. A remarkable bestseller.' Manchester Evening News 'Jackie Pullinger is achieving goals that not even the combination of all the colony's isms and agencies, plans and committees have been able to come near.' Hong Kong Sunday Post 'Anyone less likely to go tripping into the vice dens of the notorious Walled City could not be found. Maybe her ignorance saved her ... or her courage.'

Average monthly salary in Hong Kong is around $14K. If you're after an expat lifestyle, then you would need to earn significantly more, but you will be competing on salary with locals who do not need an expat lifestyle unless you bring something to the table that they can't.

Little is being said in regards to it, yet everyone knows: Filipino ladies have a not as much as appetizing notoriety abroad. Albeit numerous great things are being said in regards to us (adoring, tender, kind, client situated, that we make great medical attendants, aides, babysitters, and parental figures), the negative overwhelms the positive.
