This week: Riots on New Years, HK topples UK, Selfie battles + more!

Everyone ready to rock the year of the monkey? Hong Kong is back open for business after their Chinese New Year, but Mainland China is still pretty much closed until next week. Been busy being a daddy and studying Chinese!

New Years Eve in HK gone wrong…. riot breaks out.

One of my friends on Facebook, Lucian, commented this was the real reason:

“Triad disputes with the environmental department of HK trying to close down the illegal hawkers who don’t have a permit to sell food on the side of the street…”

Hong Kong Supercharged News

Everyone overseas can’t wait for Hong Kong to be back open! Its a bit tricky to balance emails and holiday – when everyone in USA and Europe is business as usual. I’m just happy Hong Kong is back open and we can get back to banking!

Photo of the Week

Superbowl + Chinese New Year overlapped this year. Waking up early is my normal routine, so no problemo! This Monday morning headed out w/ my buddy Dave to the local Western pub to catch the ‘bowl.
