Hong Kong - simply irresistible
By melinchina on Oct 07, 2008
I was in Hong Kong two weeks ago to facilitate my first management course for Sun. It was called Experienced Manager Essentials and I facilitated the session called "Leading High Performance Teams". My co-facilitators were also Sun employees - Lucia Yip from our Hong Kong office and Hok-Siong Wong from Singapore. The cool thing about these courses is that the facilitators aren't professional coaches, we're regular Sun managers like anyone else so we can bring in real examples from the life of a manager at Sun, and that hopefully makes the classes more interesting and relevant for the students.
I adore Hong Kong. Here are some snapshots from my week there.
Here's the class. That's Lucia, Hok-Siong and me in the front holding up the poster.
They have Krispy Kreme in the Hong Kong Airport! As a Southerner I can say this is a HUGE relief to know that soul food is available in the middle of Asia. Alas they don't have the "Hot Now" sign and when I asked the staff if they could sell me a hot doughnut they had no idea what I was talking about. How can you work in a Krispy Kreme and not know about Hot Now?!
All you can eat shark's fin and bird's nest?! Um, for me that would be NOT VERY MUCH!
Yep, that's what it is. Nope, don't know what animal.
Remember those amazing drummers at the Olympic Opening Ceremony? Now some of the drums are on display at the Beijing International Airport. I have no evidence to confirm that these are actually the drums from the Ceremony and believe me my husband is dubious but seriously, what else could that "0349" mean?
