A sunny Christmas in Hong Kong

When I arrive in Hong Kong the town is ready for the seasonal celebrations. For me it is nice weather, sunny and about 20 degrees. For the locals it is cold and windy. On Sunday the Philippine workers have their day off and get together in the parks and other places. But they take along boxes to make the ground less cold and to hide for the wind.
Everywhere are the Christmas trees and other decorations. I love the shopping malls with their amazing sceneries. It is shopping time and also big groups of Mainlanders fly in. There are rows waiting for the big brand shops. The little markets offer nice stuff I actually like to buy, but it is too difficult to take it along in the plane.
Raj and I went around meeting some customers. He cannot work yet as we are waiting to get the change of sponsorship for his work permit arranged. The holiday season is clearly not the best period to get these procedures done. We know now it took another month to get it done…..
With Paul I can finish the necessary paperwork to get everything ready for the yearly financial reports. My Dutch accountant will be happy and can close the books. There are always some extra challenges with a company with businesses in different countries. The only way this can work out is with reliable people in all local subsidiaries and with Jiming, Raj and Nigel we have a great team.
