The choices in freedom

Well, hi. I haven’t blogged here in several months. Quite a bit has changed, I suppose. I moved out of my old flat, and I did a trip to the Nordics recently (Norway, Sweden, Denmark). (Finland is somewhere on that to-visit list. Maybe when I’m a bit wealthier.)

Work has been good. My team at work won a bit of new business recently, so it’s been hectic trying to get things in order as we transfer in some of these new responsibilities.

Other than that, life has been relatively regular. I’ve been dating on and off with people I meet via apps, but nothing solid/consistent has come to fruition. My opinion on this has just been that “at least I’m trying”. At least I’m putting myself out there, right?

Hong Kong’s Umbrella Revolution

If freedom of expression and freedom of the press continue to be seriously eroded, then foreign investors will begin to ask themselves, “Why bother to be in Hong Kong, if Hong Kong is going to be just another Chinese city? Why not move straight into China?”

This quote makes me think: Economically, maybe that’s exactly what China wants. For the fall of Hong Kong as a financial hub, as the gateway between Eastern and Western businesses, and the most accessible Asian city for North Americans.
