Another tips is to hire a self storage unit. Apartment in Hong Kong are so there are next to no storage space. You are going to free us plenty of space when you use a Hongkong Storage

This was really helpful for those who are planning to moved in to Hongkong. Well, Hongkong is not that bad like any other countries, you can still consider leaving in that place, however, added to list, you can consider also Singapore. For your Singapore properties, take a look at http://www.propertysales.sg/
