All photos taken on May 4, 1982.

Breakfast buffet was in the Bauhinia Room at our hotel. Our tour day was a bit different today and the reason will become evident when you see where we ended our tour day.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. It was a crash course on Hong Kong for sure. Glad they times the visit up to the Peak for supper and lights on. It was a spectacular sight. Thanks for reading and commenting Lyssy. Allan.


  1. Great stuff, Allan. I treasure my two visits to Hong Kong and am virtually in mourning over what has become of the place. Getting to see the place as it was through your eyes in 1982 is really special. Funnily enough, I also went to Tsim Sha Tsui where my first wife and I picked up some jewellery. You visited some spots I never made it to, I have enjoyed following your adventures.

    1. Thanks Leighton. I wish I had made it back before all the crazy hit with the put down of the demonstrations and the Meng Wanzhou and 2 Michael’s incidents. We enjoyed exploring the area and just sailing across on the Star Ferry. Our tour guide knew all the good bits to visit. Glad you are enjoying and thanks for your valued comments. Allan

    1. It was a kinder time for sure. Hong Kong was allowed to prosper on China’s doorstep. Now, it all has to be all PRCs way. Pity, but I see the Chinese are rebelling about the way China is going after Covid Zero. Perhaps, they are now realizing what it is to be under total government control. Thanks for reading John.
