    Hey Guys,
    after years of lurking in here, getting inspired and loving all the information given on here, iam ready to introduce myself.
    i am living in Hongkong for a few years now, by choice, but iam from germany, Berlin.

    Thanks to BHW i got into Online Marketing and managed to make my first Money with an instagram Project, that basicly happened by accident. So i set myself goals, bought an iPhone 6 with my first Internet Money (700 Euro, was realy proud:)) and now start to reinvest my current Online Marketing earnings into Online Marketing.

    I am full time working as a social media marketing guy now, mostly for german companys. But also passionate about side projects containing Online Marketing.

    Is there anyone from Hongkong in here? Or even germans like me in Hongkong into Online Marketing?

    So far, thanks for everyone who posted smart stuff in here, its a pleaseure (and a sleeping-time-killer) to be here.

    Cheers!

    I've always wanted to visit Asia, although I would prefer Japan (Tokyo, to be exact).

    How is Hong Kong as a whole?

    Welcome to the site as well!

    Thanks for the warm welcome Aluminium!

    Do it! its totaly worth it! i was actualy never interested in Asia, untill i came to hongkong for a stopover on my way to australia and i couldnt belive what i was seeing.
    Hongkong is amazing! It has Jungle, Beach, the craziest Skyline in the world and Skyscrapers just 7 Taxi (5 USD) Minutes from eachother. Its so different and beautiful!
    Also its the most expensive City to live as an expat, quite anoying! For the rent iam paying with my girlfriend we could buy a house in europe...

    So if you Drop by on the way to Tokyo, ill show u the City! :)

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forum Kollege. Very nice that you're living in Hong Kong right now, where a lot of my 'Chinese gadgets' come from.

    Thanks mate! Already had a great time! Still better times to come! :)

    No Tongue Problem, works well. Hongkongers speak a lot english, was british for so long!
    Earn enough to make a living here and be free to do what i like, also not enough to get me a jetski or a Lamborghini :)
