I was so excited when I heard I was going on a business trip! Work + Travel. It sounds so fun!! :D As I’ve never been on a business trip before, I had no idea what to expect or even prepare, as it was just a one-day business trip. Elaine, Gaile, and I attended the opening ceremony of The Shenzhen hub of Qianhai. It's a newly opened area designated for young entrepreneurs from Hong Kong and elsewhere to start their businesses. I was surprised and impressed by this comprehensive “E hub” and I didn't expect all the different functional buildings, as well as serviced apartments, with such a large open area! What’s more exciting is we will have a space there soon!! I do hope this E hub can help young entrepreneurs fulfill their dreams! We also took some time to see the city!
Look what we had for lunch! yumyummmm :P
This business trip thing was awesome. :D Cannot wait to organize a trip to Qianhai for Garagers soon! ~ CM
