Apple Shop in Hysan Place

I was in Hong Kong this September. I saw Hysan Place  had a section which is around three stories was  covered by a big cloth. I was wondering what sort of constructions were carrying on.
The answer is revealed when I received the photo from my friend in Hong Kong yesterday.  That is Apple Shop in Hysan Plaza. This shop opened on last Saturday. No wonder, it is covered by a big cloth for months. I think that is the secret weapon of Apple. It is surrounded by three-story-height glass and I think that is the largest apple shop in Hong Kong. That is cool. My friend told a lot of people took a photo in front of this shop!!!

New air-con is installed

This morning, i got my new air-con. It is more quiet. Moreover, it looks nicer. Lastly, I wish it has a better energy rating too.

We fix computers too.

TA lot of friends know my company,AdvanGeneration, builds website and computer programs. Not many friends knew about we fix computers. We clean computer virus and install operation system etc.
Building websites and computer applications are big tasks. They costs some fair amount of money and take time. That is hard  to win a job like this.On the other hand, fixing computers is an easy task. Moreover,all households need this kind of service! So that is relatively easy money to earn. However, this is still our side business .

My air-con is gone.

Posted by Picasa
Yesterday, I announced the end of service for the air-con in my bedroom. That is around ten years old. Early of this year, the control board is burnt out. I cannot turn it by the remote control. I have to turn the socket of its main power. This is the only way to shut it down. Last week, the situation went worse. I smelled something burnt when it turned on. That is enough. In Australia, that is very expensive to someone fixing the appliances. Thus, I bought a new Air-Con. It has five-year warranty. I believe it can last for a while.

Risk Management in a start up

Someone suggested those start up company should focus what they are good at. Well, i got a different point of view. We have a variety set of business area. This spread out the risk. Even one area is not running profit, other business areas can support the company running.
Moreover, the one area can generate some new leads. For example , we sold a web design package to a client. Once times I have chats with that client, i found they need someone to do some I.T. support tasks.  Well, i got some new businesses.
I think that is good to develop some new business areas along your core business line.

Fresh Food Market@Hong Kong

Fresh Food Market@Hong Kong

Hong kong people got an interesting idea. They think any meat is processed, it is not fresh anymore. Thus,in those food market in Hong Kong, you can see live chickens and fish. They pick the live one. And the staff of will "process" the livestock in front of customers. That means "fresh"!

AdvGenCMS -Next Step to Mobile

I am putting my efforts on building API of AdvGenCMS. That is for Android App of AdvGenCMS .I believe every blogging or CMS platform needs to have an administration interface for Mobile. Now, we are going to post-PC era,some people will only have a tablet, they won't use PC anymore. Moreover, the mobile interface can allow the users to post the latest information of a live event. Thus, I need to build a mobile interface for AdvGenCMS.

Wonton Noodles@Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop

Yesterday, I had a bowl of a tasty wonton noodles at Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop in Telford Plaza. I love it! Firstly, Wonton noodles is a kind of Hong Kong Traditional Food. Moreover, the bowl of wonton noodles is very authentic. Soup is great, noodles is very fresh. I gave a five stars to them. But that is a bit expensive, the small one is $30 and large one is $38. Well, they got comfortable seats. We got a good break in there.
Generally, I am bit happy about this restaurant.

100 Years Before Birth of Doraemon

100 Years Before Birth of Doraemon
Doraemon will birth on 2212, that is 100 years later. So, Harbour City is to celebrate this event, they placed more than 100 Doraemon figures in the open area near the Star Ferry Pier. Each figure has QR Code, you can use your smart phone to scan it, and then it will bring you to the website for this event. That is very fun! A lot of people go there to take photo with Doraemon figures.


I brought two ticket of SKY 100 for $150 from Groupon. 
SKY 100 is  the 100th floor at ICC which is the tallest tower in Kowloon. Moreover, that is an observation deck, you can enjoy 360 degree of Hong Kong.
I went there at night, that is very impressive. No Doubts, Hong Kong has a nickname, Pearl of the East! That sounds there is a better view than the peak.
But I found inside lighter in SKY 100 is too bright. I tried to photo in there. The glasses reflected light a lot!
Anyway, that is a must-visit place in Hong Kong.

MTR is the best!

MTR is the best! 
 Although MTR has some delay on their services due with some technical problems, I think that is very reliable. I have been live in Brisbane and Sydney for a while. I believe MTR is much better their public transport systems. Moreover, we get to most of urban area in Hong Kong via MTR and every train in MTR is just around 5 mins max. In the world, there are not many cities can do that!

I build my own CMS- AdvGenCMS

I have spent a year to build my own CMS- AdvGenCMS. Finally, I completed it. During the process, I learnt MVC and LINQ. Moreover, that is advancing my system design skill!!!

Keep changing

When you start a small business, please keep your mind open. You are on a journey to find the right answer. Maybe, at the end, you have to completely change your core business. Startup business is very dynamic.

Star Ferry

Star Ferry @ Hong Kong 
Posted by Picasa
Before I go to Australia, that was very very rare to use Star Ferry crossing Victoria Harbour. That is too slow. Usually, I used to travel by MTR.
But, during these recent travels to Hong Kong, I choose to use Star Ferry at least one times in each trip. Well, now I got more time. I go to Hong Kong for holidays. Moreover, I like to travel by Star Ferry, I can enjoy the scene of Victoria Harbour. The most important reason is the fee. That is $2.60. If I choose to use MTR, that will cost around $10. But all Star Ferries are without A/C. That is very very painful to stay there during summer!

Batman Dark Knight

I watched Dark Knight last night. It is not bad at all. This is a good action movie. Only bad thing is no many fancy weapons.  The batman jet seems to be the only new gadget. Anyway,the script is good.The joinery of batman recovered from his past is very meaningful.

Started to jog again

When I was in Hong Kong, I was jogging every day. But after I backed to Brisbane, I go to gym three times per week. I think that is good enough, so I give up to jog.
Today, I went to jog again. My gym is a bit far from home, I cannot go there everyday. Jogging sounds easier. As a result, I decided to jog when I cannot go to gym!

Macau Visit

Senado Square
When I went to Macau two months ago,  I quite like there. Because there are a lot of old buildings, such as Senado Square. I felt like going back 18 th century. Moreover, even the floor is paved by the coloured stones, very traditional. I like there.

Always cost cutting

"Cost cutting" seem to be the golden rule in businesses world. That is rare to hear a company will speak in public to say "we will spend a big money to improve quality. "   That gave the impression most of companies are keen to earn the quick money. That is so sad.
