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.
As the majority at the people who visits Hong Kong escaped the city crowd for some hiking. It was end of December and, as in most parts of the world, people were out in the nature to do their final hiking before Christmas. Young kids sang songs about the Finish Santa Claus all around us while we were on our way to master the peak of Man On Shan – the mega mountain north east of Hong Kong.
