Speed dating in hong kong dating royal copenhagen figurines
We would like to say thanks again to Jamie and Violet for being our cupids!
We met each other through Lunch Actually on a dinner date.
I recall how almost all of the women were affluent mainland ladies working in the financial sector – I guess they were of the ‘cash rich, time poor’ persuasion and so speed dating made good sense.
Almost all worked for Goldmann Sachs, they often spoke great English and many laughed very, maniacally at my lame jokes.
Women paid almost double and we were all told to ‘bring a smile’, dress smartly and remain ‘open to new possibilities’.
"Life is better when we have someone to share it with!Only the guys moved from table-to-table and at the end of the evening, everyone picked who they’d like to meet again.If there were any double matches, Rachael helped you exchange details.Also, although relaxed, I couldn’t help but detect a heavy stench in the atmosphere from both the men and women present (I believe it was Eau du Desperation.) I happened to be the only Caucasian at this event, but one has to wonder if an ABC, BBC or any non-white male would be welcome at the gathering advertised above…HK is a tough place for dating, as recent studies show, but perhaps this latest ‘niche’ event is a little hard to stomach for even the most hardcore of singletons.
Doing the rounds today on Reddit, Facebook and the Twittersphere is a bizarre ad for a local dating event tonight… Indeed, it was a ‘Speed Dating for Young Professionals’ evening hosted by Rachael Chan of fame.
