Asia’s World City – Hong Kong

with 3 comments

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.

  2. Hi Hannan,
    Nice to hear from you. How has it been with you lately?
    Plans for business will never be dropped, gaining experience, trying to make an impact and looking for opportunities [the way my friend advised] as I continue to work for a firm. What are you doing in Kuwait? Cheers!

  3. currently i am working as Tech Support/Developer for Biometric Security Devices and deputed in KNPC (Kuwait national Petroleum Company) as Residential Engineer.
    but in kuwait IT is still not explored. Cannot see much in development front,here big MNC companies like to acquire software rather then inhouse development..So you find more of Support Job for existing systems…Like oracle Apps ,oracle financials, great plains etc.
    Yet i am looking for good opp in development field as i am on verge of finishing my MCSD Certs..hoping for better opp ahead..
    Regarding Business, Kuwait has got amazaing potential,,and market is grooming everyday.. so keep kuwait in ur list if at all u plan to start business

    Regards
