Thursday, October 7, 2004 - Did I Say Housing Was Ridiculous?

I meant insane. Check out this article I found regarding extreme low-end housing in HK. It's scary. With all the government regulation of the housing market, you'd think they'd do something about this.

I also read in another article that the average size (in usable space) of a new HK flat is 370 sq. ft. O--M--G--.

Yikes!!!!!!!
We live in a 900 sq ft apartment which is just cozy enough. I couldn't imagine going smaller.

OOOOh! Sounds so damned "cozy"!
Actually, my kids and I lived in an apartment that size right after the divorce, for about two years before I could afford to move up. It was close, but not too bad. I sent them outside to play alot!

I can't imagine living in what is essentially a kennel for people. I know that what we would be able to afford over in HK would be a 1000-1300 sq. ft. flat (depending on location, amenities, etc.) That's a little smaller than we are used to, but not bad.

I heard from my mom that my cousin with her husband and 1-year-old have just purchased a 3500 sq. ft. house. I have NO IDEA what I would do with that kind of space. (I also don't know how they afford it, but that's not my concern...)
