MTO Stations Sion's as your point. That's because strictly speaking there is no such places in the area that lies between these two stations and is bordered by Victoria Park Victoria Harbor and Braemar.

Wealthy and a lot more people can get by an English lot easier there, if you go to lake Calhoun, it's less so, but but still does it remind you of the American city, or is it kind of thing it's kind of its own thing.

I am very Jon Bon Jovi ask and I don't have like, I've always thought that about you baby. I don't have bad city experiences, but I do have cities that like I fly into and you do kind of get that perspective as you are landing and you sort of break the cloud cover recently. It was Phoenix landing in Phoenix like, oh, fuck, like they're like in the mount. That's like a mountain right there. That's why appreciate a good mountain. Yeah. I mean, there are cities Seattle, I feel the same. We're going to see at all here in a couple of weeks and I love I love going to Seattle kind of for this very reason because it's like geographically really fucking interesting and also has a distinctive distinctive look. I think I just think that because I feel like I know a little bit more about that city than than most, but that's. Because I went up the space needle. So I went up there and I watched think the black-eyed peas play a show at the stage that is kind of under it for some TV show, maybe Oprah. I am tripping balls right now. There's no way strange from things together, but it doesn't just have to be a tower right in Hong Kong. There is Victoria peak which is mountain sort of on the western edge of Hong Kong island, which is sort of the southern portion of Hong Kong. And that was really cool because it's kind of right on the edge of everything. It's not in the middle of the city. It's like right on the outskirts of it, but it's so high up that you can see everything. And when you are in such a like an environment that you are so unfamiliar with like that is a really, really cool experience of just sort of getting the getting the groundwork laid out for you ferris wheel to like getting getting a ferris wheel viewpoint of either, you know, a city where it's a permanent fixture or of the carnival that you're a ten.

I, yeah, I l like I know it's very basic, like going up going up the go of the space needle. I feel like sounds vary like I'm endorsing sort of this touristy behavior, but I think there's some, there's some. I have. Having travel as much as I have. I feel like there are certain, like touristy things that are like, there's a reason everybody does it, and there's a reason everybody should do it is because it's a, it's a genuinely sort of cool and.

"That's a Bloomberg business flash. Tom, john. Karen, thanks so much right now. Let's go to Hong Kong we talked trade within the current. But far more importantly, and we need to get a hurricane update. So much of our global Wall Street audience has friends family business associates in Hong Kong. What does the state of the central district the financial district and Hong in general? We're good morning. Tom. It's certainly getting back to where it was. But it takes some time. We had a significant hit from the typhoon around central Hong Kong. You can see windows blown out of some of the big skyscrapers. There are roads closed due to fallen trees and then falling scuffling and debris in the like uncertainty than outside of just off Hong Kong island where a lot of a bankers next month with live certainly significant disruption with a frame boats washed away and trees fallen and and and very heavy debris blocking roads and stuff. So let's say that although Hong Kong clearly manage to more or less shaved the storm so to speak. It wasn't into either storm. It certainly has taken a reasonable on taking some time to get back to normal the Chinese equity markets second reasonable hit for the last year or so and how important was breaking down through that two thousand sixteen low like we did today. I think it's just reminded her negative sentiment is more or less on China at the moment economy's doing okay. It certainly doesn't seem to be heading towards any controversy. It's hard landing but the headwinds are at their domestically. They have this deal ever, gene campaign to want to get a grip on the level of debt in in the country. And of course, expertly than their facing into this. The unknowns of this trade war with the US. So I think that there is a bit of negative sentiment in China, both internally and externally, and that's why the stock market's headed to wait is maybe on Monday here, we can take a pause in just ask of the state of Hong Kong right now, all this trade uproar, the tit for tat the next next. What what is the mood in Hong Kong right now. It's a mirror think of some uncertainty, Tom because as you well know it squeezed right on the one hand Hong Kong is leveraging China's growth rate over recent years and decades that of course, is boosted China's own Portland boosted. China's a financial gateway in brusett, Hong Kong is essential gator in China dinner. And of course, it's still very much connected to the global economy, and it's very much connected to the US interest rate cycle thoughts. Freezing squeeze from China's economy in one hundred squeezed from. Of course, Hong Kong itself was changing as it grows ever gonna integrated into into China's political system too. So I think there's a sense of uncertainty and change near and within your reporting, Tim copen and Taiwan and the rest of our Bloomberg technology team one of the great backstories here, particularly with the new iphones. Coming out is the president could surgically go after apple and work in change and disrupt their manufacturing processes in and around in Hong Kong is that a valid worry. I what I talked to people by technology supply chains I hear that. They're very much embedded across the region. They're very difficult to disrupt you kind of just up Rouge high tech, high value, our companies and factories and moved them to other cheaper parts of either this region or the world. So I think when it comes to the story that's a bit more complicated in the conduct of the trade war with as well. And this report this come out in the last couple of days. That the Chinese are said to be looking at the supply chain of US manufacturers and looking at Weiss this Rupp them, I just struggle to see why the Chinese with do that when the such a big incentive for them to keep hold of foreign capital and make sure that people still want to invest in the country. Do you see this happening again and to keep hold of foreign Ohio and foreign IP? This is the one of the great challenges facing China when it comes to the trade war become obviously retaliate dollar for dollar and a tire fright. That's well understood comes to non-tariff barriers even if they were to make life more difficult for USA Inc. Operating inside China that also makes life more difficult for China's own companies for China's own economy for all the Chinese workers operating in those companies. So so they can certainly strike back to China in channels beyond the world of tariffs, but not without a cost to own economy. That's your point John. There's only so much that they can do with tampering with supply chain and spies US companies right hurting themselves to and the current. Thank you so much for an update from Hong Kong. John just. Coming across a Bloomberg Hong Kong Disneyland to reopen. Tuesday with partial suspension are quite wins. Some of the videos over the weekend. Extraordinary. What two hundred miles an hour. What the speeds are. There was some significant wins. Yes. Hong Kong two hundred miles an hour. Sounds pretty exciting rigs. Really? I got a lot of value on a Taylor in Raleigh. Yeah. Just water.

"We're back. You are. We came back actually quicker than. It took that music to play in real life. Do you have stuff that you're looking forward to doing in Bangkok in Hong Kong? I mean, sex, tourism? I assume no, you know what the good thing about Hong Kong going back to Hong Kong is that seen the touristy stuff. This is what I love about going back to places. So then this time I feel like we can just get more of a feel for the, you know, for the city, whatever the funding Hong Kong is, I don't even to this day, I don't understand what Hong Kong is is in a city. Is it a province? Is it a? Yeah, I don't know, man. Is it a pro lecture. Didn't used to be like a British colony. Yeah, yeah. And now it's a Chinese colony. Yeah. Although, like I think it's still very much like. Independent of China in light culturally and stuff. Well, they didn't want to go back right now. I don't think. Yeah, who wants to go back to China. So do you have like an area that you stay at? You've been there once and this is going to be the second time? Yeah. Is there an you're gonna stay at has fun stuff or. I don't. I don't really know anything about Hong Kong. We stay on Hong Kong island that that side of it. There's also Kowloon. I mean, it's pretty big. But there's not like, well, I shouldn't say it's, it's like a super just super densely populated place. So no matter where you are, you'll find shit to do. But I want to, you know, I like getting like feel of neighborhoods and stuff. So in Bangkok, I have, no. I mean, I feel like it'll be a cheap place to eat in shopping shit. You know, I don't know, normal tourists shit, I, I'm definitely looking forward to it from what I understand. Bank has really Italian food. Yeah, that's what I'm going to Bangkok for the task. So with Hong Kong, it's like speaking English is not a problem depending on Hong Kong island. It's definitely way easier than in other areas. Like Calhoun is more Cantonese, but speaks Cantonese, so we're, we'll be all right. But yeah, you can. You can get by in English fairly easily, and if you can't, you know, just point. And say it lately in English and yes, loudly it slowly in English. I want that prostitute. So I just finished listening to a podcast. I think I've recommended, I forget if I did or not, but it was called the gateway, and it was about a teal swan, a a, I don't know what to call her a self, self proclaimed self-help person where people will contact her when they're suicidal and she gives them advice like yet to either commit to living or commit the dying. So you know not the greatest person in the world. But anyway, the the less episode has like a full on. Interview with her and it's some of the stuff she said was pretty bad, like. He asked, how do you know so much about psychology? Like I have a photographic memory, but five minutes before that she talked specifically about at like a case where the woman killed herself after dealing with teal swan and why don't remember? I don't remember. I don't remember what what she knew when she came to me. So it's like dude, the what's great is the interviewer didn't like highlight that you just have to pick up when you're listening. I mean a little bit stronger. But anyway, we'll we'll, we'll made me think of it was that she's says that she's in contact with the universal consciousness, which is where all questions and all thoughts people have ever had forever are located, so she doesn't have to study. She can just access that and learn things. And that's helped you learn lots of medical information. And he's.
