Work overload – my internship is almost ending

Read all the exciting things our scholars have been up to!

At the end of July beginning of August, two weeks before the end of my program, I had too little time to write my blog. Therefore, I am writing it just now. I need to finish most of my projects I was working on, and teach new interns so they can take on the projects once I finish my eight weeks. Since the beginning of July, I have had a different boss and a distinctive work pace. I had to adapt to the way she works and how I need to communicate with her. I try my best, and I give my best so that everything is up to date.

Meanwhile, in my free time, I try to explore new places in Hong Kong. I also found out that two of my co-workers are Harry Potter fans and one of these days one suggested to go a thematic cafe after work. We also enjoyed some Hong Kong street food on our way, close to the Mongkok station.

On the weekend, I went back to China and visited a Zoo in Guangzhou. Zoos are not my favorite places. Most zoos I had visited in my life has sad animals on display and the peoples’ behavior towards them didn’t see the best. However, before leaving China and finishing my internship, I wanted to see a panda and a zoo was the easiest way to see one.


I had to leave mainland China on Sunday because I had to go back to work on Monday. However, this time I did it by myself, since my friend was going to stay longer.  She was worried because last time it took me a while to get through immigration on the Hong Kong border side, but that was not a problem this time. Everything was fast and smooth.

That’s what happened during week 7. I am so sorry for posting so late, but there were too many things I had to finish at work that kept me from writing this blog post earlier.
