    UK look rather pathetic in comparison.
    UK's brilliant! It's not pathetic I rather like the peacefulness of England and the way people are generally relaxed and clean and not too crowded, although that depends on which city you're on about. Mind you, HK's way more international than the UK - the UK food and media markets are so damn narrow! I think England's a better place to live, but it's not very exciting - HK is a lot more interesting in the entertainment aspect and will make a brilliant holiday. Shame though when I don't like clubbing or shopping, so lol not much attracts me to HK other than the fact that I'm from HK

    I don't think I'd like HK much if I went back now - I'm not a city person. And as for the education system, I'd prefer the UK system tbh. I don't think the stress level in education has changed much since 1995? (when I left HK)

    Btw no debate about HK vs UK intended here! Don't wanna bring the debates back to life lol.

    And as for China and HK - dunno the politics behind it but personally I like it better if HK was independent. I don't watch the Chinese news but my parents do now and again and from the comments I've heard them made, the state of HK has declined ever since returning to China, hasn't it? Certainly my family moved to England before things went pear-shaped, as far as I know. Feel free to correct me btw cus I don't really know what HK's like now - it's been too long since I went back.

    In the Joint Declaration, the PRC promised that under the "One Country, Two Systems" policy proposed by Deng Xiaoping, the socialist economic system in mainland China would not be practised in Hong Kong, and Hong Kong's previous capitalist system and life-style would remain unchanged for 50 years, or until 2047.

    what will happen in 2047? i mean literally,like what will be changing in hk in terms or lifestyle, government and evertying?

    I heard that loads of students are finding it hard to find a job in HK.Loads of students want to come over to the UK because we have a better education system and it improves their chances of finding a job in HK if they have a UK certificate.The only problem is the high fees for university courses which many like my cousins could not afford even though their parents were sending them money from HK.

    I always moaned that UK was so boring and it was much more lively in HK but now I'm glad that I was born in UK and will stay and work in the UK.At least I will definitely get a state pension when I retire whereas I won't if I was in HK.
