Hi, my name is WANLIKHANG
I have written articles most of my life. I have worked for over 60 years in six different cultures. My prime location in the last 40 years has been Hong Kong and mainland China. I now live in England where I grew up. But I return as often as I can to Hong Kong.
I describe myself as a polymath, an older, more dignified, expression for ‘jack of all trades’! But – follow my blogs. These cover many subjects, situations, and countries.
I try to present balanced views about the topics on which I write. This is especially true when I write about Hong Kong and Mainland China. Most Western politicians and media have not spent much time in either place. As a result, they fail to understand the cultures. They view events – an give opinions – through Western eyes and values.
Our tiny international and multi-cultural team does the hard work. Their expertise in design and in using modern networks shows in the way our blog is laid out and in the videos we produce. Our news reader patiently scours Chinese media for interesting material. We are on Instagram, Facebook, U-Tube and LinkedIn.
We continue to learn. So do please write to us with ideas, criticism, and suggestions. Tell us what you would like to hear about. If you have something you would like to say, let us help you say it!Contact Me
China has a vast and varied media industry. Opinions among writers differ greatly. The media is supervised in ways that seem offensive to Western countries. Yet Chinese journalists comment on and criticise officials as they do everywhere. They are keenly observant of Western media. Our news investigator reviews every week some of the authoritative news sources in China to find stories that might interest our readers.Read more
As a former corporate citizen, Wan Lik Hang knows and understands the issues that businesses face. Our particular interest is the interface between what is happening in society as a whole and businesses. Education, for example, is critical to both society and business. How our brains work impacts leadership styles and behaviours. Social trends, like the rich-poor gap, have an impact on how citizens view business. Our balanced posts shed light on these and other topics to provide food for thought.Read more
Under ‘Lifestyle’ we have covered a wide range of topics, from child abuse to electric vehicles, from aging to COVID, from teaching to how our brains work. Our ideas come from a wide range of sources, are topical and challenging and thought provoking..Read more
Hong Kong SAR
Hong Kong has rarely left world headlines since China ceded it to Britain in 1843 having been defeated in the first Opium war. Now one of the world’s three premier financial centres, the UK handed Hong Kong back to China in 1997. Hong Kong vividly illustrates the clash between Chinese values and governance and those of the West. ‘The Reasonable Man’ sees the arguments on both sides. At the heart of it all are different cultures.Read more
Nearly everything we do today has a hi-tech aspect. Electric vehicles (EV’s), 5G, the Internet of Things are just a few of the topics to which we need to pay attention. More sinister are cyber fraud, ransomware and crimes that were unheard of as little as 20 years ago. We write about the impact of these trends on our lives. How does Facebook seduce us to spend our time for their advertisers’ profit? How do criminals trap the unwary into giving away access to their bank accounts? Why are EV’s the future of personal transportation?Read more
Geo-politics, crowd behaviour, the effect of colonisation on our lives today: these are topics that affect us all no matter where we live. With a mix of philosophy, psychology, and practical analysis, we try to explain topical issues with balance, and pragmatism. If you can understand why something is happening, you have a better chance of accepting and dealing with it.Read more
Artist and traveler on his journey to understand the world through visual comprehension. Head of Samata Design Studio, Osmous animation studio's co-founder.
Over the course of two decades, I have undertaken academic, volunteering, and career pursuits in several jurisdictions. I am a traveller of this world. I see things are transient in nature. I am hungry for knowledge and treasure maximising the value of time, as it is said: ‘Man was born free, but everywhere he is in shackles.’
As a man of principle, I strive to achieve what the phrase means with real faith. My efforts may change the minds of a few but the judge who tries to do justice is better than those who hide the truth.
Works with words since 2008. Specializes in visual and text content for brands, people and ideas. Inspires by nature, travel, people and food. Last two options found their places in the current job: creating visual for The Reasonable Man and her own blog about nutrition and health.
