We work creatively. From organisational storytelling to events collaboration - let's work together!

"There are only 500 golf carts on Discovery Bay, and I run one of the two shops where you can get them repaired."

“Did you know that firing of the Noon Day Gun has been going on for over a hundred and fifty years in Hong Kong? The story goes something like this. The gun used to be fired every time our tai-pan was seen to be approaching from sea - not just to salute and welcome him, but also to alert people that the boss is back! One time, a British naval officer got offended by the loud noise, as the practice was normally only reserved for army or government officials, not tai-pans. As a result, Jardines was given a penalty to fire the gun every day at noon, in perpetuity - and so the tradition carried on!”

“We fire the gun rain or shine, even in the middle of a typhoon - as long as it is safe to do so. I have many fond memories from my army days. We would do ambush and surveillance training out in the mountains - in Sai Kung, Hoi Ha, Pat Sin Leng. I remember so clearly the first time I got to go on a helicopter - the cabin door was not fully shut and I was so terrified that I would fall out! We would also catch smugglers at the border with Mainland China. My day to day life is a lot more relaxed and low-key these days. I like to go to Ap Liu Street Market in Sham Shui Po to look at second hand goods, and generally take things easy. I love my job and I want to be carrying out this duty for as long as I can!”
