On February 27, our Club met despite the current Coronavirus outbreak. Members wore masks throughout the meeting except when eating or speaking. Some members and spouses arrived early to mingle and share stories about how to pass time in the past few weeks when most social events, including Rotary events, have been postponed or cancelled. Some members continued to share stories about how they managed to donate/distribute extra supplies to those in need around them.
Master Au came to our Club as speaker to talk about the Year of the Rat in 2020. He gave his insights on various current events, including the current Coronavirus outbreak. The topic could not be more appropriate considering that it is the number one thing on everybody’s mind during this difficult outbreak period. Master Au also gave some insights on the stock market, Hong Kong real estate, China trade, and general business climate. Finally, he also made a swift prediction about the 2020 US Presidential election, the outcome of which most certainly has generational consequences not just in the US but around the world.
