  1. It still is in Hong Kong - very popular with the locals and foreigners alike

    Brexit turmoil

    I don't believe there was a suggestion that the consequences of a Leave vote would be immediate - and certainly nobody seriously thought we'd be fighting WW3 by now! We joined the EEC 45 years ago. A lot of water has flowed under a lot of bridges since then so it's hard to see how we can take comfort from how good things were back in 1973 before we joined the EEC. We'll find out soon enough which side told the most/biggest lies - I hope you're right though!

    RANT- What cheese's me off

    I disagree completely Clermont. Why do you need to worry about women?

    Brexit turmoil

    The Leave vote was a democratic decision and should be respected. It may have been based on lies and half-truths but what election/referendum isn't? That said, when it becomes clear a decision is not in the best interests of the country, there should be a mechanism to revisit, surely? More importantly, it's making my San Mig lights more expensive!
  5. I guess it's like the question "How long is a piece of string?" - there are so many variables (location/lifestyle/habits etc). I think the impact of exchange rates shouldn't be underestimated as you have said - fluctuations can be as much as 10% over a year +/- - it makes a difference to most of us. I guess that's why so many Americans have a big smile at the moment whilst us Brits less so! Another very important thing is the buffer for unexpected emergencies - especially important here where there is really no welfare net to catch people.
  6. I think this has been answered already in the posts above?
  7. Yep. something that should be stopped as it's misleading advertising. That said, their strategy works as it encouraged you to browse flights - for every customer like you who gets frustrated and goes elsewhere, there will likely be one or two others who suck it up and book anyway.
  8. A lot of attention from the females in your area would be my guess!

    Hong Kong Disneyland Trip

    I guess I really meant enjoy the experience in the sense of remembering rather than enjoying the moment - I'm sure most 2+ kids will enjoy it at the time.

    Hong Kong Disneyland Trip

    My son was born in Hong Kong, we left when he was about 2 1/2, We didn't take him to HK Disneyland as we though he'd be too young to enjoy much. He has no memory of anything from that time so probably was a good call.
  11. To be honest, I'm like you. If my wife was no longer able to support my 13A then I doubt I'd want to stay here. I also wonder if she was to pass away before me, who would tell the BI i.e. would I be able to remain here until I passed away? If both types are available to you, I'd go for the cheapest and simplest option.
  12. I wonder how many people do this. or are aware of it?
  13. I don't need to read the news - If/When such events occur they will be mentioned here PDQ! I think you're missing the point - Nobody has said such things do not happen, myself included, but the frequency is rare as proved by the fact you were able to recall only 1 or 2 events over the past 1 or 2 years. Hardly rife given the number of foreigners living here.
  14. So is winning the lottery - I'm not pinning my retirement plans on it though!
  15. ..and we should be grateful for that as it helps keep us and ,more importantly, our family members safe here.
