The HK version involved 9 people including: an Overseer; someone who looked like your Grandad (to take care of the small touches / make you laugh / gently cut your shoe out of the fuse box); and one person at any given moment commenting on the progress of the 8 others. An hour and a half for lunch, and immense amusement at my sitting on the sofa wrapping 22 HR leaving presents in Union Jack wrapping paper. The UK 2010 equivalent 4 years previous involved 2 men, equally kind, in and out in an hour and a half, who packed my entire home quicker than it takes me to pack for a 2 week holiday. March 2014.
A traditional Chinese banquet, with a contemporary Northern Chinese cuisine twist, and the HK HR team. Arguably the best views across the harbour over to the sparkling jewels of HK island, amid atmospheric Chinese decor and reflections on the changes we’ve all seen over the past 4 years. March 2014.
