Tolerance

I have just returned from a work lunch. We had dim sum at a local restaurant here in central. I have been living in Asia for a few years now and would count myself fairly “au fait” with the more important table manners required when eating with my local colleagues.

Stranger things have happened…

There is a girl wearing lens-less frames at work today. She is wearing contacts, with lens-less frames. She says that her eyes are swollen from an infection and she needs to wear glasses with no lenses to protect them. Interesting concept. I wear glasses myself and know only too well the discomfort that they cause … Continue reading

All my life I have rolled my eyes at the screaming girls that congregate outside the houses of celebrities, and judgmentally thought less of those that idolized individuals because of their achievements or the level of fame that they had accomplished.

A new friend?

Last Friday was a busy day…I was given 2 minutes notice and was rushed off to a seminar at an American association here in HK. My Directors were part of a panel and they kindly thought I would benefit from listening to what they had to say. So generous. To be honest, it was a … Continue reading
