April updates: I am still living in Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh City. I have been thinking for a while now about getting my 2nd Hong Kong post up. As it is Monday today it means I am on an extreme blog mode, us usual. It also means I have to go to work. In Vietnam people normally work on a classic Monday to Friday schedule (while some companies still work half Saturdays). Monday mornings (and all other mornings besides Sunday’s) routinely starts with my personal wake up alarm – the kindergarden outside the building that blasts music on 120 db (no kidding!) playing for the whole city district at 7 AM in the morning. Now this is luckily not a problem anymore due to me living in my flat mates old room, which kind of has no windows but instead is dead quiet. Being forced to wake up early is not an issue anymore and I can wake up by the alarm of my phone, good for me, good for me.
About Hong Kong – the first one was about hiking in the mountains and this one covers hiking in the city. I have some photos below. This city lands somewhere on top of my list of all developed ‘Asian’ cities I have been to. Above Singapore, but probably just below Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei. What is to like about Hong Kong is that it is easy to get out of the city and enjoy the smaller towns and villages (and mountains, beaches, islands, yes), and it takes just 30 min to 1 hour to get somewhere more peaceful. It would also be a great choice to work and settle for sometime due to its competitiveness and standard of living. Coming back to Hong Kong for sure. By the way, there are some places to shop clothes too.. and to eat delicious Hong Kong food.
