Many people ask me why I live in Shenzhen, China, instead of Hong Kong? In a way it feels a bit strange that I have a Hong Kong blog and podcast but don’t live there.
GFA063. That was my six month old son Miles on air! pretty hilarious when I asked him to get on the mic he farted….this may embarrass him when he is old enough to listen back, but let’s just keep that our little secret ok everyone? Wendy, my wife, also caught a photo of this moment I’ll put the photo at the bottom of the show notes at globalfromasia.com/episode63 for those curious.
GFA044. Thanks for tuning in – we are now at episode 44 and I’m recording today on Chinese Valentine’s day! This year it is on Saturday August 2nd, 2014 and it’s never the same day as it follows the lunar calendar instead of the Western Solar calendar – a bit tricky and lucky enough I found out from a wechat message from a friend a couple days ahead of time else my wife would have killed me! Got her some Hong Kong women’s perfume and other goods I carried across the border the other day.
GFA042. Thank you everyone for tuning in to another Global From Asia, a shout out to 4 amazing people who shared last week’s Hong Kong warehousing and fulfillment post – Casey Lau (who was on episode 3 on Hong Kong startup scene and StartupsHK.com), Victor Leal from Importarama.com who I met when he was here for Canton fair from Brazil giving me some of his research for the logistics show,
and Michael Eagleton from FABAPC brands in Shenzhen, who shared it a couple times this week on his linkedin and I’m so appreciative – and Chi-Wai Li who is a regular listener and founder of getfit.hk,who also left a voicemail for us.
