Join Saadia Usmani for On The Menu this Saturday as she continues her quest to find diverse home cooks in Hong Kong. This week her taste buds lead her to Burundi.

Today on Morning Brew... is Steve Vines day. Join our man at 10.10 as usual, live from his country estate and broadcasting hub. After 11.30 our tele-vet Dr. David Gething will be with us, live from Barking General. Today, to use his medical terminology, we’ll be talking about “what to do if you've got a dog who barks all day, attacks other dogs, or chases the neighbours down the hallway outs”. Fair enough. And, after 12 we’ll meet JC Viens in Venice (as you do) for this week’s wine whine. Join us on Facebook live throughout.
On Thursday’s Backchat, the future of West Kowloon.
Authorities have announced they will withdraw the tender exercise for a massive mixed development in the West Kowloon Cultural District which includes retail, hotel and exhibition components.
They said the decision is based on the uncertain market economic outlook and the unsatisfactory response from the tender exercise.
What are the implications, as West Kowloon is expected to rely on income from commercial leaseholders after building? How will Covid and our economic position affect plans? Is there any demand for more hotels, grade A office space and exhibition venues? What is progress like at the long delayed project?
Get involved and let us know what you think. You can leave a message on our Facebook Backchat on RTHK Radio 3, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call on 23388266.
US and Chinese negotiators will meet online in the coming days to discuss the progress of the Phase 1 trade deal. Beijing is believed to be pushing to widen the agenda to include Washington’s ban on apps from technology firms ByteDance and Tencent. President Trump issued an executive order last week barring US companies from doing business with Tencent’s messaging app WeChat, and ByteDance’s video app TikTok, that Microsoft is in talks to buy. The ban which is effective in 38 days means that US citizens could be prevented from downloading the apps in the Apple or Google app stores. Mr. Trump had earlier said he would shut down TikTok should no American buyer complete a deal by September 14. The ban could also impact Apple with iPhone shipments in China expected to drop markedly if the smartphone maker is forced to remove WeChat from its app stores worldwide.
On Friday’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Francis Lun, CEO of GEO Securities and Quentin Webb, Asia Markets Editor at the Wall Street Journal. With a view from Australia is Toby Lawson, Head of Global Markets at Societe Generale Australia.
This week it's Glenn Miller...but not! Top bands and artists of the 40s and 50s all performing those classic Miller tunes, including Joe's theme, a different song from that choo-choo movie (you know the one), you also know exactly what June knows!
So, if you're in the mood, tune in Sunday.
