After hours

As recommended by Institute members


“For a more ‘off the beaten path’ hike in Hong Kong, try the Wa Shan trail. The trail, also known as the ‘Great Wall of Hong Kong,’ is a 5.6 kilometre former military road in the northern New Territories. It connects Fu Tei Au in Sheung Shui to Ping Che Road in Fanling, and you’ll be treated to 360-degree views of Sheung Shui, Fanling and Shenzhen. Other highlights along the hike include a view of the PLA San Wai Camp, San Uk Ling Firing Ground and a large rock with four Chinese characters. It’s a relatively easy hike that can be completed in around three hours. To reach the starting point, take the 73K bus from Sheung Shui Station Bus Terminus and get off at Fu Tei Au.” – Gordon Liu FCPA, retired


“In the book The Infinite Game, author and inspirational speaker Simon Sinek argues that business is an infinite game, one in which competition comes and goes. He talks about treating business as an infinite game, with the focus on building a lasting company. This is especially true in today’s COVID era, where we see the market constantly shifting. Sinek provides a framework at the beginning of the book to help readers “shift” to having an “infinite” mindset. Instead of starting with “how,” Sinek says start with the pursuit of “why,” as this will provide you with a vision that creates purpose and inspiration for the future. The book is inspirational and definitely worth the read!” – Kevin Lai CPA, Head of Accounting at Richemont Asia Pacific Limited


“I have been listening to some songs from Finneas O’Connell, an American singer-songwriter more commonly known as FINNEAS. I particularly like his song Another Year. It is a piano ballad and is his first Christmas song. Though the song was released on 1 December 2020, FINNEAS said in a statement he first wrote the song in December 2019, inspired by the uncertainty that laid ahead. He added: “Had I known anything I know now about how 2020 would go, I don’t think I would have changed a word. I hope wherever this song finds you, it brings you some small dose of comfort. The horizon is bright, I think.” – Summer Li CPA, Manager at Alvarez & Marsal (Disputes and Investigations)
