    Hong Kong or Europe

    If you had the choice, would you rather have a baby and have him/her educated in Hong Kong or in Europe (The Netherlands for example) ?

    Well...that type of decision depends on a lot of things.

    I've never lived in the Netherlands so the only things I know about the education system are all from my own studies for my master's degree (a number of my lecturers were from the Netherlands). If you and your family don't speak Dutch, that is going to be a roadblock for education in the Netherlands unless you are going to attend an international school--even so, speaking Dutch is pretty important.

    Also depends on what your connection to Hong Kong is and what type of education you're seeking for your child here.

    “Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a
    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”
