I can't recall what is the market rate in HK, but that sounds a bit low for HK.
Plus you have to pay taxes I think.
But for 11 k, you should be able to get a nice room (maybe not an entire flat).
Anyway, if your new employers accept your proposed pay just like that, it is probably too low. You should have said like 40k and see what they say. After all, you are already getting 31 k.
But even if you have not signed the employment papers, its a bit too late to ask for more money now.
