A day at the beach

Last Friday morning, I answered Gary Stokes‘s call for food service on a remote Lantau beach to support Plastic Free Seas with a eco-education day for young students in Hong Kong at 8am the next day.

We arrived and I was dropped off with the food and the gear while the crew headed off to scout for rare pink dolphins in the area. While the two junks met up with Amberjack to watch the two dolphins just off shore, I prepared the coals for the feast and enjoyed some alone time on the edge of nowhere.

This crew amazed me with their attitude, dedication and willingness to go the extra mile.

This is one of those times when pictures tell the whole story.

Our future is in good hands.

The feels

In October 1992, I answered an ad in the @scmpnews for a half-time PR Lady and landed my second HK job.

It came after working 3 months at Laykin Communications, where I got the best introduction to Hong Kong media.

My mission at The Jimmy’s Group was to convert a storage room into my office and create their first in-house marketing department. There were 7 restaurants and we opened 3 more, including La Trattoria in the Landmark and Jimmy’s Sports Bar at the newly opened Hong Kong Stadium.

Fast forward to 2003, when I personally delivered copies of the first edition of Natural Hong Kong – the heartbeat directory for free distribution, and I was welcomed like it was old home week, though I had not set foot inside the restaurant since 1994.
