Our dear Hong the fast lane

My perfect Sunday morning is spent lounging in the sun with a croissant in one hand and the Weekend Financial Times in the other. Although this Sunday there was no sun I did get to read one of my favorite columns in the FT – its called The Fast Lane by Tyler Brule. This week he chats about how different cities are taking on the economy crisis.

This is what Brule says about “Hong Kong: there’s always a bustle about Hong Kong, and, if outdoor media space is anything to go by, then all the world’s major luxury goods companies are counting on HK to help them through the storm. A hotelier friend of mine still had his sense of humor about him, so occupancy rates couldn’t have been too terrible.”

…this left me thinking and excited to step into a new week.
