“I have experienced HK heartbeat personally as well as via my business. On arrival into Hong Kong, I found the heartbeat directory at a cafe in Central. I had been in town for about a month and was looking for places to stay when I chanced upon it. It was a life source for me. Moving to Hong Kong from New York was not easy since at that time, I had no idea where to buy organic products, and follow a sustainable lifestyle as I did in New York. This guide helped me and my family in getting settled here in Hong Kong. Moving forward, when I met Kinzie, I thanked her for providing us with this amazing resource. SpiceBox Organics had launched and the synergy was great. We keep the Heartbeat guide at the store, and will always support her. This directory has grown organically (as quoted by Kinzie many times) and will continue to develop and be an amazing resource for us in Hong Kong. Thank you Kinzie!” Punam Chopra, SpiceBox Organics
