Investing has a lot to do with common sense and personal observations. The man on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one first class hotel to another first class hotel and from one golf course to another.

Have a fishball soup with noodles at Wanchai's most strategic corner (Lockhart/Luard) and enjoy a great view.
After that, cross over to Neptune 2. While having a couple of pints analyze Wallstreet's closing and get carried away by the latest disco sound.
