Default FDX- HKG Where is everyone living?

Just curious to see where those of you that have gone to the HKG FDA are living. Is it nice, did the rental stipend cover it, pet friendly, other expats, etc?
Also looks like the transpo pickup will be in Kowloon, so how is transportation to there?

Looking for some real info here from guys that are actually over there please.

Similar question, what are people paying for their place and what do you figure your total cost of living is (rent, utilities, "condo fees", etc)? Are you satisfied with your medical care? Are you (and more importantly, your family) enjoying living there?

I've got too many guns to want to make the move, but I may have to put those in long term storage anyway until Obama is voted out!

It may be 8 years before you can bid back anyway. Don't make the HKG decision out of fear!

Unfortunately more than a few folks WILL be making decisions based on fear regardless of your warning.

I am a pretty adventurous guys and all, but Hong Kong sounds to be about 10times worse than MEM. Plus, we cant get paid enough money to put kids through school according to this crappy LOA we got. No fear here, just common sense, NO to HKG! Let it stay with SIBA crews.
