Where I stayed
My classes at CUHK and my time in Hong Kong seemed like a blur of lectures, parties, and lots of noodles! It's hard to believe Could move through classes so quickly and retain anything but I actually learned a lot about Chinese business this term. At the University of Florida, I have usually focused my studies,projects, research on Chinese firms, or China case studies, to continue expanding my knowledge of Chinese business, however this term my professors strictly focused on Chinese business and I really enjoyed it!
Professor Lee was full of experience from 20+ years with IBM and now sitting on executive boards for several Chinese companies
Professor Powpaka, or Sam, was a very different professor. In his class, he was full of practical advice and was extremely efficient and organized in his lectures. I really enjoyed his class because I gained a whole new level of understanding about marketing and statistics program SPSS. Overall, I had a great semester at CUHK and really enjoyed my professors!!! Excellent experience.
My first impressions of Hong Kong: I was very surprised about the high level of cleanliness and orderliness of the city and I noticed so many "little"things during my stay in Hong Kong which sometimes made me feel like I wan’tin China at all
I soon found out that Hong Kong has a substantial art community and musical performances,art exhibits, wine tastings, and lots of these events were accessible and common. Hong Kong also had some fantastic outdoor activities, kayaking, and snorkeling, boating, sailing, hiking on the various peaks in the area, parks,cyclist clubs, and lots of community activities bringing the families outdoor. One of my favorite Saturday afternoons was spent on a row boat out in Tai Mei Tuk where lots of families come to have a barbecue in the park and get away from the city. It was really beautiful out here surrounded by mountains and the sea. Even the Boy scouts had a club function that afternoon and lots of people were kayaking and sailing in the area. Hong Kong definitely has some great areas that you can escape from the busy city life.
Loving exploring this city!
