I'm still preparing...
Will be out of the country in a few days from today...
God-willing...Inshaallah!! Hong Kong here I come!!!
Funny how I was made to write an article about Hong Kong some years back when I applied as a writer for a BPO company. Since I knew nothing about such place except that it's a very exciting holiday destination from what I read, I wrote, "I haven't been to Hong Kong ever in my life, so I can't fully describe the place...blah blah blah." And what do you expect? I wasn't taken in!
Because I'm a positive thinker, I applied for the same position in another BPO company and good that the COO told me to write about something closest to my heart, as part of my application process. I wrote something about peacebuilding among the tri-peoples of Mindanao. That very same day, I was told to go home and get my laptop and start working. And the rest is history.
I've written about a thousand articles for various niches - food, health and fitness, business, even porn, done some adverts and marketing contents, among others. I even tried making reviews on TripAdvisor which I fancy so much - this after I've gone to so many places and eaten various food offerings!
Today is another exciting day for writing because I am going to write about my Hong Kong experience! Below is what I found on Google:
"Hong Kong is an autonomous territory, and former British colony, in southeastern China. Its vibrant, densely populated urban center is a major port and global financial hub with a skyscraper-studded skyline.
Central (the business district) features architectural landmarks like I.M. Pei’s Bank of China Tower. Hong Kong is also a major shopping destination, famed for bespoke tailors and Temple Street Night Market."
This I'd like to find out for myself...Good Luck to me! Hong Kong here I come!!
