anyone back from oversea?



  • Hi everyone,
    Just wanna see if anyone here is back from US, Canada, UK, etc. What I mean is literally growing up there and been 80% educated there meanwhile holding chinese (cantonese) cultures because of family.
    I came back to HK about 2 years ago and would like to meet new network of people, friends, etc.

    My info:
    almost 24, primary language English (reading/writing/oral), Cantonese (oral, reading)...enjoy shopping around HK! ^^



  • Hi kkay,


    I have been living and working in Australia for quite some time. I had also studied in the UK.





    Are you looking for a chatmate?


    Are you male or female?



  • OMG..i left out the most important part...haha, i'm a girl~~


    opps...



  • hi KKay,


    so what do you want to chat?




  • why are u still up this time of the day and wondering if someone's from overseas here?




  • em....any experiences to share? went first arrived to HK...


    cuz my first year in HK was bascially like hell...



  • why? could u tell us what happened?



  • my job is fairly flexible, i know it sounds unbelievable, but it really is. So like, I can wake till afternoon to begin my work. Plus, I think i have insomnia? Can never sleep at night...



  • hey kkay, would you like to chat with me on msn at gentle-man@hotmail.co.uk ?



  • I guess I wasn't very used to HK working culture and the office politics.


    And I realized working/living in HK and being a tourists/family visiting and totally an entire different story. That's all...



  • i actual have the same problem of insomnia from time to time. And that's why i m up this time chatting with u



  • icic ^^ haha...


    so...how long have u been back in HK? and is your family here?



  • Mind telling what sort of work were you in then?



  • Hi kkay


    I used to stay in Aus for few years.


    But I came back to hk since 5 years ago.


    Hong Kong is a really busy place comparing with Aus



  • well I have been back for years now and i am totally well fitted into the local way of life.



  • cuz i came back in 2008, the economic tsunami...quite difficult to find a job. So basically I took any offering that wasn't too unreasonable (salary)...and it turned out to be "personal assistant" to those old and hard to handle and menopause 40+ male << CEO.



  • Sorry, am I disturbing you 2?



  • Actually, I think I'm getting used to HK life now. I used to hate it and wanted to go back to the States...but now I retrospect and think deeply, "things could have been worse.." Plus, look at US now...is doomed. So I'm glad to be back and have a decently stable job and living standards not that bad compared to many people. I mean, I know there are thousands way more well off than me living in 100M houses driving Ferrari, but I'm content with what I have now. ^^




  • you are being so funny referring to your irritable CEO having his behavior under the influence of a male menopause.



  • Hello Steelmen~ Nono...i'm just so bored and awake, hoping to meet new ppl from here. Care to do a brief intro? ^^

    I don't think the tax in Aus is higher than States.....


    Why do you want to go OZ? I had stayed in Melb and Perth


    but Melb is better for travelling.
