Catching up

This week, we are catching up.

Every time I attend a trade event, I catch up on the latest in our community and I return with dozens of new contacts and promises to get everyone connected.

At the LOHAS Expo, last week, I got sidetracked by the row of local farmers tucked away against the far wall in the convention centre. These are my people and instead of doing my regular follow-up when I got back to my global headquarters, I decided to share some of their beautiful local seasonal produce in Hong Kong right now.

Of course, I was then motivated to update my Guide to HK Farmer’s Markets when I learned that one of our original markets closes this Sunday because the government is taking back the land. Within hours, I got news from Green Queen announcing the return of the Tong Chong Street Market.

We call that synchronicity.

This gave me an idea to take a short cut and highlight our local HK natural resources so you can get even more information from hard-working people who share my love of sharing all things natural. Please say hi from me when you get in touch with them.

I will still follow up with everyone from last week and get you connected.

In the meantime, it seems perfect timing to let everyone know I am now taking registrations for listings in the 2016 edition of Natural Hong Kong — the heartbeat directory. There will be a few changes this time and I am getting help from the experts to make it even better than ever. I find it hard to believe that nearly 4 years has passed since we gathered for the launch of the last one.

Although winter seems to be pushing back on spring, Hong Kong is coming to life in anticipation of the hot summer ahead. My proof for this is the seeing the March calendar bursting at the seams — or it would be if we were limited to print like the old days before digital saved a lot of trees.

From the beginning, I started this little business to help you find what you’re looking for … even when you’re not sure what you’re looking for. In some ways it’s getting more challenging and in others it’s getting a little easier every day.

Do you know what you’re looking for?
