Asia’s World City – Hong Kong
Had (in fact still am) been busy settling down at the new house and office here in Hong Kong and that seems to have taken a toll already on the frequency of my writing posts.
Anyways as you I know I left from Pune on the 5th of August and reached Hong Kong on 6th Aug. morning. The flight was 2 hours late from Mumbai, but overall the journey was pretty decent.
Of what I have seen so far of Hong Kong, I would say, it is a highly vibrant, energetic and a full of action city. It is as compact as Tokyo, or even more, but they have managed to develop the infrasructure really very well. Huge buildings and crowded streets are a common site. Best of all, people know English here, and hence I am hoping I will not have as much trouble as I had in Tokyo communicating in Japanese.
I stay in Kowloon which is the other side of the Hong Kong island. And office is in central Hong Kong (Hong Kong island). Have to travel by a ferry on the Victoria harbour each day to and from office. The view of the huge (commercial and office) buildings from victoria harbour is awesome.
The view from the harbour is very well captured by – http://www.terragalleria.com/asia/china/hong-kong/hong-kong.3.html
At the end of the day I miss Pune and I miss home a lot.
