HK Cage Homes and the Bauhinia Heroine

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.

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    So sad, to think that no matter how rich a country can be, poverty still exists.
