We DID it !!!!!!

After almost a year of "Japanese salary men", involuntary workaholic torture in Japan, we have finally moved on --> Mike and I have moved to Hong Kong about a month ago. (yeah!!!)

I can't tell you how happy we are since we left Japan. The only things I missed about Japan are the friends that I made there and the 恵比寿 swimming pool (the cleanest pool I've ever seen in my life)...

Anyways, Hong Kong --> i.e., new changes, new job, new living environment, new life style , new schedule, and more importantly, NEW LIFE !!! I can't tell you how much more happier Mike and I are since we moved out here~ Comparing with Japan, it is like... hell and heaven!! I know it's probably a bit too dramatic description; but coming to think about it, it's true in many ways.

You got to love the convenience of EVERYTHING here (yeah, virtually everything, not kidding!!) Restaurants, shopping centers, grocery stores, electronic shops, anything you can name. Transportation is excellent. MTR is my all-time favorite transportation. The JR and subway in Tokyo, in comparison, look like crap. Another major advantage is the low cost of living in Hong Kong. Everything is 10 times cheaper and you got 10 times more selections !! I couldn't stop buying and cooking different kinds of vegetables everyday from the market the first couple weeks we were here!! haha....

Some other things that Mike likes particularly about Hong Kong are (of course) the safety of it. He was so serious that he did a somewhat in-depth statistics and wrote a blog entry about it.

Anyways, in conclusion, we haven't been this happy for a looooooong time...

See, our happy "looks", hehe (^_~)v

It's so glad to know that you both are so happy in HK, but on the other hand, I'm little bit sorry you didn't like my country as one Japanese, I know what made you mad and exhausted, though. this is not first time for me to hear it...
Anyway, be happy, smile, and get lots of yummy food!!!(^0^)/
