It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds

After three consecutive rainy days, I look out the window to see trees which look greener. There are always some birds sitting in these trees and I believe they live there.

I always wonder why birds stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then I ask myself the same question.

I still remember how my boss asked me to stay here two years ago.

“Birds go wherever the food is and stay where the food is.” He spoke to me anxiously. I understood that he was worried about my decision.

“We are birds in flight, searching the skies for dreams.” I told him.

“Not every tree is a home for every bird.” He said.

“Birds born in a cage think flying is an illness.” I told him.

“At some point we all play by the rules, whether it’s the rules of all mankind, the rules of the Father who is time, or the rules of nature who is mother.” He signed and I could feel his sadness. He didn’t want me to leave.

“Anyway, keep in touch, my dear.” He looked at me and looked in my eyes.

“Will do.”

“Protectionism. One day you will understand the rules. This is only one thing more painful than learning from experience and this is not learning from experience.” He said sincerely.

I nodded.

I was not so sure. And I am not so sure.

Is stagflation coming?

“Property market is going bananas around the world.” He says after his morning coffee.

It’s always his show time in the morning at his office.

“How come the housing demand is still strong during the pandemic. Property market should start to cool on its own when unemployment rates is going up and ecomony is hit by lockdowns.” I complain.

“It can be a good sign of ecomony is covering or a sign of something bad.” He said

“bad thing? What would that be?” I doubt

“The thing that every government dosen’t want to see it.” he contiues.

“Stagflation.” He states.

I wait for his explanation.

“Stagflation will happen in the situation which the inflation rate is high, the economic growth rate slows and unemployment remains steadily high. As young as you may not know that stagflation is a catastrophic for countries. It happened at U.S. in 1970 before.”

I google it simutaneously while he is talking.

“But not everybody will lose during stagflation. It will further widen intergenrational inequality.” He explains more.

“What can we do now?”I ask.

“Not WE, just YOU.” he laughs.

“Use your creation to generate more income as fast as you could. Within crisis, are the seeds of opportunity.” He shares.

That is the most difficult part. Everything is easier said than done. Wanting something is easy. Saying something is easy. The challenge and the reward are in the doing.

2021 Republique du Tchad The International Entertainment Series – Mahjong Fortune Copper Coin

This is a one of the interesting items in my collection.

Mahjong Fortune Copper Coin

Mahjong, which has developed in China since many years. And this game is very popular in China, Asia and online. Mahjong is also a game which people believe that it can help elderly people prevent dementia. Care Centres for elderly people in Hong Kong will encourage elderly people to play Mahjong with each other.

I have to declare that I do not play Mahjong and do not know the games rules about Mahjong.

These Mahjong coins are farewell gifts to some of my friends who are going to leave Hong Kong very soon. One of the features of Hong Kong people are playing Mahjong, love to be rich, and love money. The golden Chinese word “發” on the coin is the meaning of “Get Rich and Good Luck”. Wish my friends who will have these Mahjong coins will be rich and always be lucky in other places.

Some say: No reason to stay is a good reason to go.

Me: Even if I had a million reasons to leave, I would still look for one to stay. It’s because this place is lovely.

Wish you guys all the best. You will be missed.

Covid-19 will reshape our world

“Covid-19 will reshape our world. We don’t yet know when the crisis will end. But we can be sure that by the time it does, our world will look very different.” one said.

My job duties are totally different when I am back to office. It makes me realize how the current pandemic changes our world in all perspectives.

“Pandemic is a war. It makes people losing their jobs, losing their homes, losing their lives, and losing their minds.” My boss says when he sips his cup of coffee.

“Yup, but it just affects the grass-roots the most. The riches are still rich.” I joke and wipe my working desk up at the meantime.

“Life is really not fair. Deal with it.” he is holding his coffee cup and walking next to me.

“Wealth inequality and social mobility are global issues. I cannot deal with them personally.” I look at him and answer.

“School doesn’t teach you how to be a wolf. It will teach you how to be a sheep. School won’t teach you how to be a leader. It will teach you how to obey to leaders.” He says.

“Don’t give up easily. I believe interruptions generate opportunities.” He gives me a smile.

“Alright.” I smile and then I said, “but please don’t forget keeping social distancing in working environment.”

He giggles and walks away.

The most stupid thing Didi did: Chose US stock market for its USD 4.4
billion IPO.

Just after Didi raised its IPO which valued nearly USD 68 billion in US stock marking on June 30 2021, Chinese government and Chinese Regulators blocked Didi on Chinese App stores and Chinese Market. It made Didi Global Inc. plunged below IPO price.

Didi is a Chinese ride-hailing company in Chinese and bases in Beijing which provide Chinese customers with taxi hailing, private car hailing and social ride-sharing services. Didi currently has around 550 million users and around 10 millions of registered drives over 400 Chinese cities.

Some analysts believe the crackdown of Didi in its home country means that Chinese government wants more control on Chinese big data as well as a new battlegrounds of US-China trade wars.

Didi is now facing scrutiny over its data security by Chinese regulators. This cybersecurity probe by Chinese regulators also bring out a very strong message to other China’s tech giants: Do not even think about listing in stock market outside China and Hong Kong, especially in US stock market.

For those Tech Giants business owners in China, running the whole business not just needs to be given business consideration, but also a nation security consideration and patriotism consideration.

The World is Digitizing

The World is Digitizing

“Paper money is going away.” Elon Musk

“Good morning, boss.” It is 8:30 early in the morning.

“Good morning. It’s great to see you again in my office. You know I missed your backchat.”

 I wink and give him a smile. “I missed you too”

“So, tell me about your long holiday.” He feels like he is very interested in my vacation.

“Well…”

“I’m so glad to tell you that I bought an iPhone for myself. Therefore, no Privacy now.”

“Yes, no one can live without a smartphone during lockdowns.” I totally agree with him.

“Amazon, Facebook, Google, Blah Blah Blah. They have everything they want finally.” He murmurs.

“The whole world is going cashless and paper money is going away.” He continues.

“There is no solution.” This is impossible to go against the big trends.

Crypto.” he says.

Crypto.” He repeats.

Cryptocurrency will replace gold or Silver as the ultimate store of wealth.” He states.

“Yup, I’m not sure.” I hesitate.

Crypto will not be broken, it will be bypassed.” My boss observes.

Back to Work

“Things are not always right because they are hard, but if they are right, one must not mind if they are also hard.” Winston Churchill.

Two years after my long vacation or adventure, I discover the whole world is changing in ways that I cannot imagine. I cannot imagine the whole world will be interrupted. No Flight, no dine out, no school and no physical face-to-face interaction. Internet and social media are taking up most of our time and we cannot live without them.

The definition of society is re-defined.

Suddenly, I remember my old boss who taught me a lot about how the world works. Certainly, I missed him sometime. But I just do not know what my first sentence would be when I call him.

Nevertheless, I just call him this time.

“Hi, it’s…”

“Yes, I know. I was waiting for your call for so long.”

“Yup, I am so sorry that I left without saying anything about it. I was…” It was a very long story and I hope I can talk about this later.

“Would you like to come back and work with me again?” he asks

“It’s…it’s…it’s such a pleasure!” I am shocking. I am blank. But I am also very excited.

I cannot believe that he will invite me to work with him again after I left so suddenly.

“Things are not always right because they are hard.”

It is Mr. Churchill’s quote and I know what he would like to imply.

“I am still there and see you tomorrow at 9.” he says.

The network

My boss is weird. He doesn’t like playing social media very much. As first, I thought it might just because he didn’t know how to use smart phone.

“How do you know what’s happening around the world?” He said.

“Everyone shares news on twitter, Facebook or IG. Technology makes information exchange faster.” I said and kept typing my email.

“So, if there’s no network, there’s nothing.” He said.

Then, I stopped typing.

“We can only source information from one single way, that’s wired.” He kept saying.

“But network is so important now. People are all talking about 5G.” I insisted.

“You source information or you are spoon-fed?” He asked.

I know. I know what he said.

He is absolutely a weird boss.
