I was born in Big Apple. My divorced parents decided to live in their comfort place; therefore, I grew up in Hong Kong for almost two decades. After I graduated from high school, I decided to leave. The San Francisco Bay Area becomes my second home. I have the vision to move back to the Big Apple in the coming future.
New York City
One sentence that says it all: it is a beautiful city. It is convenient to live there because of the New York City Subway. By the way, I like trains, but not obsessed with it.
It is hard not to admit that Hong Kong is my hometown after lived there for decades. It is an international city - a mix of Chinese & western cultures. It is a great place for retirement, but not for living due to high living costs & low wages.
San Francisco Bay Area
I love the great weather, literally. It rains for a few months during winter and spring. The rest of the days gets sunny, cloudy, or foggy. This place frees me from air conditioning because I do not need one at all. One thing I do not miss is the traffic.
Where should I go next? Probably somewhere in Texas, like Austin and Houston.
There is no place on Earth that we can escape from deadly diseases (such as coronavirus, monkeypox) and natural disasters.
