Talked to some old timers like you once, they claimed business wise the city actually got more and more international in the early years. I would have guessed under British rule that it would have been very expat dominated early on in the business scene. But at least this banker claimed things got more international before it somewhere early 2010s started to get more mainland influenced here. Agree?
1. Audi A4 or similar estate car for daily driving to and back for work
2. Landrover or Range rover for weekends
3. Motorbike for quick short trips or weekend bike rally / gatherings
once a month cheap flights on Ryanair to many European cities for short 2-3 day weekend trips with just a small backpack (wear same underwear for 3 days LOL)
1 way ticket to European cities for less than 100HKD
You should do a tribute thread/post telling stories from all your 40+ years here..
Cheers @chuckster007, another long-timer leaving for greener pasture, more importantly one of the very few of us left from GeoStoneAge era, your bolts, nuts and words of practical wisdom will be sorely missed unless you turn into one of the many lifelong members of GeoLurker community..
All the best..
