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?”

Anson Chan

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.

Oh, the places you’ll go!

Look at that! Two blog entries in one week! This must be some sort of world record! I kid, I kid… But before I dive into today’s blog, I just wanted to let everyone know – because obviously, my blog seesΒ loads of regular visitors, so that’s why I’m using the word “everyone” – which reminds me that I haven’t set up Google Analytics on this new domain yet – that I reread my previous blog entry and made some edits to it. My blog entries are statistically unproven 99% word vomit, which means I don’t reread or edit my blogs after I click “publish”. Apologies if you’ve noticed any pronounced grammar errors in my past entry!

Anyhow, I met up with two of my longtime friends today, and on my way home, the get-together made me daydream about all the places I wanted to visit in my 20s and 30s.
