I'm really late blogging this, picked these up ages ago and then sat on putting it together (sorry)... Because we renewed our rental contract recently (34% increase from where we locked in 2 years ago - ouch!), we were researching rental costs couple months back... Who knew HK Cage Homes cost more to rent per sq ft than the lofty residences on the Peak?
A 15-square-foot cubicle Cage Home costs around HKD1,500 in rental a month (so about HKD100 p.s.f.)... A home on the Peak rents for around HKD30-40 p.s.f per month.
I got the above off Connectdot Films; I don't comment on politics because I consider myself generally too clueless and should therefore not be listened to regarding politics. But I had to say something about free speech, I find members of the public in Hong Kong are allowed to be relatively outspoken and critical - in some parts of the world this might be considered quite a luxury.
