View of Tolo Harbour from Cloudy Hill
“For those looking for a relatively easy four-hour hike packed with good views, I would recommend visiting Pat Sin Leng Country Park. You can start at Hok Tau Reservoir, then walk to Sha Lo Tung Cheung Uk, up and down Cloudy Hill, and then end at Lau Shui Heung Reservoir, which is known as Hong Kong’s ‘mirror of the sky.’ The 10-kilometre route features views of mountains, the sea, historic ancient villages, and views of both sides of Tolo Harbour. Look out for dragonflies at Sha Lo Tung – more than 70 species of dragonflies have been recorded there, making it Hong Kong’s ‘dragonfly paradise.’” – Barry Tam FCPA (practising), Sole Proprietor of K.W. Tam & Co.
“I recommend How to Win Friends and Influence People, a self-help book by Dale Carnegie. The book – of which over 30 million copies have been sold worldwide, making it one of the best-selling books of all time – describes techniques when it comes to handling and persuading people, earning favour among others, and leadership. I have met many successful people throughout my career, and I can’t agree more with one particular piece of advice stated in the book – that if there is any one secret to success, it lies in the ability to understand other people’s point of view and see things from their angle.” – Bryan Ho FCPA, Chief Financial Officer of iFund
Move to heaven
“Move to Heaven is a Korean drama available on Netflix about cleaning out the ‘earthly’ possessions of the deceased, helping them ‘move to heaven’ and the delivery of ‘meaningful’ possessions to their loved ones. The main character, Han Geu-ru, has Asperger’s Syndrome, and when his father passes away, he is left to operate the cleaning business by himself. Fortunately, his uncle, who was recently released from jail, becomes his guardian and the two start clearing out the possessions of the dead together. The drama is very sentimental and moving as you follow Geu-ru, who uncovers the most meaningful possessions of the deceased and the stories behind them. There are only 10 episodes, making it ideal for a weekend binge during this current period. The series will move you, so keep a box of tissues handy – you’ll need it!” – Michelle Chu CPA (practising), Assurance Director, Moore Hong Kong
