Seriously.  My boss tells me that I am going to Hong Kong tomorrow.  When I asked her why, she was very vague and seemed to avoid the question.  By the same token, she won't tell me how long the trip is for.

So basically,  I now have a one-way business class ticket to Hong Kong, which leaves tomorrow evening.  I have no idea how long I'll be gone, where I'll be staying,  or what I'll be doing while I am there.  

I'm quite freaked out.  If I suddenly disappear, you know where to start looking.

edit: changed the subject title because it turns out I'm in China.  Not Hong Kong. :p

I'm going to try... although my boss seems to have gone on a business trip of her own.  I guess I'll find out when I arrive.  Either that or Gilbert Cheung will be getting a panicky phone call when I arrive.

Help, I'm being held captive in a Hong Kong bakery...

More like, "Help I'm being held captive in a Chinese jeans factory!"

So I'm in our headquarters in Guang Zhou, China.  Apparently my boss wants me to learn more about the production process.  All well and good.  I'm tagging along with the guy who speaks the best english (meaning we can understand each other 75% of the time) and I'm following him around and asking dozens of questions.  Fine.   It's been nuts.  I'm putting in 12-15 hour work days.  A harsh reality for a nine-to-fiver like myself.

Pray for me.

Alive, yes.  But.... for how long?

I could never live in Hong Kong. It's just completely wrong for me. I'd freak out and die after a week.

Although I am rather envious that your boss just 'gives' you a plane-ticket. grrrr.
