I worked in
Hong Kong on a new ticketing system for MTR (Mass Transit
Railway system) during 1997. This was for a new line between Hong
Kong and the new Lantau airport. I wrote various object orientated
Hong Kong is truly unforgettable. I stayed in Kowloon
during two separate visits in 1997 just before and after the hand
over of the colony from Britain to China in 1997. Despite its
British colonial past, Hong Kong's culture is very Chinese
and to experience that culture first hand was fascinating.
During my visit there I also managed to visit
Macau, the Portuguese equivalent of Hong Kong. In Macau one
really gets the feeling of going back in time with all of its
backstreet industry still done in the traditional Chinese way.
