A typical day

As I am living and working in hong kong you may be wondering "what does a day in the life look like, how is it different from the USA?"

My day starts off waking up when it is about dinner time where I am from. I eat oatmeal if I wake up on time or I might go down to the Mariner's Club restaurant for breakfast (usually fried noodles, toast, yogurt, and some fruit).

Then as I leave I have a couple of options. The first and my preferred is to take the star ferry first thing. This option takes a little longer but is much cheaper and I get to have a nice walk outside before going to the office.

My second option is to take the MTR (subway) Tsuen Wan line two stops in to Central Hong Kong. This way is faster by about 15 minutes and requires less walking, but usually its very crowded when Im going to work and its about HKD7 more expensive.

When I get to the office I usually start by checking my email and seeing if I have anything on my desk to take care of first thing, I might interview a client or prepare a statement, more likely I will look for files or input data. I also am also working on project and event managment for our fundraisers and our upcoming brand refresh.

My favorite thing to do after work is on Tuesdays and Thursdays, when I travel to Causeway Bay to play rugby with Happy Valley. It is by luck (and providence of Catherine's good connections) that I found such a wonderful team to play with and improve my game.

Afterwords I might go get food at a local place nearby and then I take the MTR home (island line to tsuen wan line) and then I finally collapse on my bed.

Do you have any questions about what its like in Hong Kong? Post a comment and I'll do my best
