    This goes for the retail and eatery sector in general. Business wasn't great to begin with due to the government mishandling of the protests, now the outbreak may be the nail in the coffin. Interesting what the landlords who charge exorbitant rents in the city will do now. They generally didn't care if tenants can't afford the rent as they know another new one will take their place pretty soon, especially if it is a prime spot with plenty of foot traffic. But now, are they still so confident?

    I wonder whose idea was that. October is pretty much the worst month to visit Hong Kong. Most expensive hotels (if you can find one) since it's THE major exhibition month with HK Electronics and the Canton Fair.

    Since me and my buddies stopped drinking around 2015, LKF has gone down by quite a bit.

    Looks like all the Chinese places will have a tough time this year. Guess the exodus of foreigners should finally start?

    They are some pretty savvy business people. Helping each other out. Government and Business go hand in hand. Tourists and regular people? Who cares!
