The newer apartments near Olympic rent out to $12,000 / 2 bedrooms if I remember correctly ... I can't remember how big it was, 600?.

Chinese students studying in HK often live off 5-6k a month because they're used to a low standard of living and eating in a small space. Keep in mind a decent apartment will run...

It's hard to really generalize the differences in the cities unless you're more specific with the question and the context. There is very little in common between the cities except that there are many Asian people. Even this is not very accurate because the type of Asian...

Oh, btw do you speak Canto? if not HK will not be as fun as you think. I don't...

I'm nervous about the Canuck's chances of getting out of round 2. I'm worried about Lou. I hope the playoffs reinvigorate him. I think Col gets demolished by SJ. I think Heatley's style will bail out Joe. I think Chicago destroys Nashville. Weber can't be on the the whole game. Obviously the Canucks will defeat the Kings. =P I think Detroit beats Phoenix. I hope the East implodes and all teams destroy each other.

You can learn outside of work, dude.
Edward made some shirts and pants for me this past winter. I copied my WWChan shirts/pants with some slight modifications and the fit turned out very well. For shirts, the cotton looks good/on par with the WWChan fabrics but they are significantly less soft. This was expected. Pants turned out really good but I wish I specified horn buttons as they came in plastic (although not a big deal as no one really sees them). Shirts had very thin MOP for an additional $50...
