Last day of summer school

27 July, 2006 at 20:08 (Uncategorized)

Well, today was the last day of summer school at PolyU, I can’t believe its been 4 weeks already! It’s strange how it feels like such a long time since I left Melbourne, yet it feels like only yesterday when I arrived in Hong Kong.

Anyway, its been great here, this programme is fantastic and living in Hong Kong has been a great experience. Great bunch of people who did the course, can’t remember if I’ve written this in another post or in a personal email. We had students from Germany, France, Sweden, the US, Canada, Korea, Norway, The Netherlands, Australia of course (including 3 of us from VU and 2 other guys from Sydney), where else…, yeh, England, Greece & Austria. So, very global but thanks to todays ‘mtv’ society (hmm), everyone got along really well and had alot in common.

Our final test for Putonghua was today and papers were also due in so it has been a fairly academic last couple of days for me. I wrote mine on the sustainable development of China and the need to pursue alternative routes to those taken by the west, putting in some Daoist and Confuciun philosophy for good measure. Although it wasn’t the best thing i’ve ever written (I only had about 2 weeks to work on it) it is not too bad, although not always following strict academic convention :).

Hmm, probably should write something else now, gotta try and bring some stories up from memory…
