True, a low of entry level worker MAKES double due to tips.

This include waiters, waitress, bartender, valet, even doorman etc.
Many Hong Kong companies also supply lunch to their entry level workers, just like in Guangdong.
And not only it makes a friendlier enviroment, it helps workers save more money!

Good observation, Mr. snappy sammy!
Looks like we got a new global balance, huh?
China's growth will probably be not as fast pace as in the past!

Quite true!

cheerios!

According to the Hong Kong government website, the subsidized apartments is rented out at an average cost of HK$1,500a month. (That's around 35% of the minimum wage! However each household in Hong Kong has two parents + 1.4 kids = meaning a household income of at least HK$8,000 a month)

As for the MAIDS in Hong Kong, they don't need to rent.
Free Food and Board is part of the package for foreign maids!

For a foreigner, a "furnished room" cost between HK$1,500 to HK$8,000 a month depends on the locality!
It's affordable for "professional foreign migrant worker"
Foreign migrant workers are paid anywhere between HK$10,000 to HK$25,000 a month!

cheerios!

And minimum pay in Hong Kong now is HK$4,000

.......and i have a nephew, a few business friends, some old colleagues. Besides, Hong Kong government or Colonel CaringHK wouldn't be so stingy not to put up board for a friend.

You just want to "belittle me" for the "isolation created by revenue merchants in Malaya" for "god know what reasons?"
Observations, ideas "worries" them and their masters!

ha ha ha

Cheerios!

I am saving money to visit INLAND CENTRAL PROVINCES, so that i can improve my data.

A visit gains A MORE ACCURATE PICTURE of the situation in those provinces.
As for Hong Kong, wouldn't need to look that far, it's about 2x what's happening in my own region, the Malayan Super Centre or maybe just look at the neighbouring small red dot of Singapore!

cheerios!

Thank you for your "kind intentions".

I am stuck now!
So, Mr. Kbay is in the same situation.......
Blogging is a dangerous hobby.....
Revenue Merchants agents of "?", global clandestine services!

No free speech in Asia, i supposed!
But i am out in about two years.
Once those contending political coalitions in Malaya comes to accept the "reforms" i proposed.
Truth and rational ideas gain support by many but also attract a lot of trouble!

Most of the bloggers early in the CD BBS, most active are all gone.
Now it's only clandestine service folks and some "stuck" fellows with "reform ideas".

cheerios!

Strange things happen when you blog.

In 1999, i was angry - LOST HUGE in the 1997 financial crisis, hiding behind "supposed" anonymous nature of the internet.

BUT THEY FOUND ME.

In 2003, strange things started to happen. Being drugged, strange behaviour among people..........
BUT reform was top most on my mind - because i saw the danger to the country - PROVEN TRUE - when Libya was destabalized.

cheerios!
