It shouldn’t come as a surprise that many expats consider Hong Kong as their second home after a few short years. With its fast-paced development and ever-changing multiculturalism, the city envelopes just about everyone in its cozy nooks and irresistible neighbourhood vibe. Of course, there are the equally cosmopolitan people who make up the concrete jungle, making Hong Kong a unique and fabulous place to live! In spite of all the spectacular qualities that help settle people down before they can say permanent resident, there is a slight learning curve for new Kongers, especially if they’ve traversed from faraway lands to be here. With a high ratio of expats in our community, we put together a handful of tips that we’ve found helpful. Want to speed things up even more? All Garagers are invited to join our FREE session: “It’s Not All About ‘La’ – Cantonese Basics” next tomorrow (26 April) from 2 – 3:30 pm.
