Does this have to do with the apparent fact that you now have a girlfriend instead of a wife?
[quote]<strong>Just about everyone with kids in HK has a live-in maid.</strong><hr></blockquote>
So now you have kids too?!? :confused: (Or just a maid?) You certainly have a much better standard of living in HK than you (presumably) had during your sojourn in Switzerland. Being an expatriate in the US hasn't increased my standard of living one iota. In fact, I've spent hundreds of thousands of Dollars on an education I could have gotten for free back home in Switzerland. What is wrong with me?
I should just give in to my wife who wants to move back to sub-Saharan Africa. Then we could have a mansion with a cook, a maid and a driver, all for less then our monthly condo fee here in DC.
Of course, we wouldn't have cable TV, DSL and a local Apple Store.
How's that for an off-topic post?
Back on topic: I'd buy a pretty Nokia if it had Bluetooth, SyncML, GPRS and decent enough PIM functionality to replace my Palm.
