When Janet and Stanley walked through the door at Slim Taste, a typically crowded lunch place made mostly of paper in Lan-Kwai-Fong, I felt sunshine on my face. It’s not just their colorful T-shirts (with teddy bears on it in Stanley’s case) and sandals that instantly stood them apart from all the other suits and ties … Continue reading A Tale of Two Sabbaticals – Interview with two Investment Bankers who are taking 6-month to travel the world
