Willy De Ville a sadly under appreciated artist. Now gone.

There was a time when musicians looked good and young men didn't aspire to look like pensioners or homeless alcoholics Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



If you aren't familiar but wish to get a CD you'll never regret get Willy DeVille Live

Hey Joiji
No not an issue at all. I agree they are just doing their job and I appreciate what they do. In the end just want to kop the deer bone at the cheapest price......

Me: I'm in the office having a quiet James Squire Stowaway IPA, listening to ABC Jazz on digital radio, Yamaha NS10 - white cone vintage speakers, and reading the Productivity Commission Report on NDIS.
I can't stand sport.

Its a funny old world isn't it.

To be fair I'm doing much the same

Stax Sr007 (Electrostatic "earspeakers")

On the other hand, appalling air quality, a pervasive gambling and shopping culture, and a decrepit city area outside the World Heritage and Casino precincts. I found it in parts interesting, challenging and depressing. Much like most cities (or SARs) I suppose, but I found HK a far more stimulating experience.

 

You've got most of my reasons on your list there. Mainly the architecture - cobblestone roads, the churches, etc. Best egg tarts I have ever tasted, and I've been eating those from childhood. Pretty amazing casinos and over the top extravagance. Our HK friends took us around, so it wasn't depressing for me at all. HK is mainly food, menswear, shopping malls and the Peak (shows you what I know). Don't think the air quality is any different, to be honest.

 

It would be like visiting LA and skipping Vegas. That's just my opinion. I loved it. I guess you stayed for a week and maybe that was too long. I went for <24 hours, and it was a quick immersion. Hence me calling it the best HK day trip.

You're a classy man Plestor!

 

How do you like the 007s? I've moved away from headphones as I have some nice floorstanders these days, but I've always enjoyed the Stax. Used to own some Audeze LCD-2s. Tempted to buy the LCD-3s at some point...

Cheung Chau Island is great because its small - young can walk around it easily in a few hours, no cars ( NO CARS) the ambulance and Fire trucks are small electric vehicles, and theres a surf beach just like a real beach here!. And a few things to see as well as interesting houses if you walk inland and good food.

Nothing on a decent speaker system. The amplification problems are as really as you hear... Tbh I'd probably I'd just as soon go with lcd3s or similar unless I had the money and patience to wait for a BHSE...

Unfortunately this Hong Kong trip is mostly business and not pleasure. I only have this weekend and whatever is left after work this next week so Cheung Chau is out of the question frown.gif

I'm on to Uniqlo already. Making my way down to Causeway Bay tomorrow to check out their new flagship store which apparently opened just last week. Will poke around Wan Chai as well, probably another look around Central. I'm staying in Sheung Wan, so its pretty damn close anyway.

Really have to look around Brooks Brothers in HK. See any goodies to pick up.

In that case, the Armoury. Boom. Done.

Would love to get the Aus members perspective on this one!

Currently working as an analyst in an asset finance division of an investment bank in the area of risk. Graduated with a economics degree and worked here for 24 months now, and have done very well in my current role, working overseas in Australia and the US. Tech and startups are something that I had a taste of when working with such clients in SF. I think it could be a very intriguing and exciting area to be in.

I am relatively young in my career (economics & accounting degree) and I don't have any particular end goals regarding my career direction. Financially, the remuneration is fairly comparable. Do you think this is a good move in terms of experience, career path. Pros and cons?

(one con is that i can't wear my suits anymore because of the tech environment!)
