Newsletter: News Andre Sent Me From the Hong Kong Airport

Dear Global Business Enthusiast,

Michael Michelini (@michelini) here. You’re getting this email because you requested my periodic thoughts on international business from Hong Kong.

[Edit: Actually, it’s possible that you’ve never gotten an email from me. Somebody might have just given you the link to this page, which is an online archive of an email that I sent to folks who had asked for it. If you’d like to get articles like this in your inbox, totally free, about once a week or two, give me your email address.]

This week Homework in China, Iron Man HK, And a Grinch Bank Robber

I bet you’re still hungover from Christmas? This week is always such a tough week to work, that lull between Dec 25 and Jan 1 – but we are strategizing here and I’m truly excited for 2017. Already talking to some people and have great discussions going.

Maybe I’ll leave chicken out of my diet for a while…

China’s Suzhou city to halt live poultry trade on bird flu concerns

As always, a couple great articles our avid reader Andre Martin submitted:

Will my kids grow up like this?

Piano lessons, maths classes and hours of homework … a weekend in the life of China’s stressed-out kids

Via Andre Martin (via HK airport lounge perk he learned from my HK airport guide)

A Bad Santa…

Man tries robbing bank with excavator in broad daylight on Christmas morning

Via Andre Martin again, yes, while still in the airport lounge 😉  

This HK Iron Man ride is getting tons of news

You Can Ride the Hong Kong Disneyland Iron Man Experience Without Pants, Super or Otherwise

(funny thing about the article is he says Americans may have trouble going to Hong Kong once Trump is in office…guess he doesn’t know about the SAR, or could it go that far too?)

Another nugget from that article…

This hilarious video of Trump saying China hundreds of times in various public speeches – my wife thinks I’m crazy when I was laughing at it, am I?
