Only In Hong Kong

Only in Hong Kong could McDonald’s use the above ad slogan to promote their new Chicken Fantastic, a sandwich made with a rice bun instead of the standard bread.

I Am Still Alive!

Wow! I can’t believe I went three days without updating the blog! It’s been extremely busy since we left Taipei for Shenzhen, China. Pretty much each day of the three day trip was either spent touring the ECS factories, going out for shopping, going out for dinner or going out for a massage. Today we left China and enter Hong […]
