Mullin in Hall of Fame = the soft bigotry of low expectations.

Might try Gitman or Gant. Also look at Mercer's.

Isn't the sockless look supposed to evoke the beach or boating? Sand and water and socks don't mix. Which is why mini-sox (fake) and sockless laceups (why are you wearing wingtips to the beach?) seem wrong to me.

The scam that these humanities graduate progams run is diabolical. Imagine encouraging some chump to borrow 70k to get an MA in English. The gap between the moral self-regard of these people and the way they live their lives is unfathomable.
On the bright side, if you were working in Kenya, they would be looking for actual witches.
Why not go to geoexpat.com and start a thread there. Might get more informed responses. I am white and not in business, but I think that HK Chinese are in general very practical minded and, especially, these days, comfortable working with foreigners of all stripes. Navigating in a new and very international environment will present a lot of challenges. My guess is racism won't be in the top 10.
