Hong Kong Cooking Schools

My boyfriend is being relocated to Hong Kong and I am contemplating joining him, provided I can come up with a worthwile excuse...

I'm a huge "foodie" and have always planned on one day having a career in the industry, but would enjoy (and could probably use) some professional training. I've been researching the web and contacting schools in the New York area to determine which of the programs in Hong Kong would be best for me, but have yet to come up with any hard and fast answers. I would like to learn the techniques of Chinese cuisine, but also have the option to learn classic Western preparations. I am also wondering which of the schools has the best international reputation, as I will only be in Hong Kong for a year or so and would like my degree to hold some weight in the USA.

Here are the schools I've come up with so far. If you have an opinion on any of them, or any recommendations that I may have overlooked, please let me know. Thanks!

Chinese Cuisine Training Institute (CCTI)
Chopsticks Cooking Center
Towngas Cooking Center
