James Ross is in for Phil today on Morning Brew. We kick off after 10 by getting out on the trails. Our guests are Janet Ng and Steve Brammar, the co-founders of the Hong Kong 100 Ultra Marathon. Janet is also President of the ITRA - International Trail Running Association. This year's normal HKG100 has been cancelled, but there's a special version happening at the moment. We'll find out all about that. After 11.30 we've all things French with RTL France's Philippe Dova. And after 12 we dive into the world of property. Author Christopher Dillon who wrote the 'Landed' series of property books including 'Landed Hong Kong', 'Landed Japan', and so on, joins us to take a view on the market for 2022. All that and the best in music until 1pm.
Welcome to Monday on Morning Brew. Our first victim this morning is the CEO of HK Rugby, Robbie McRobbie, who'll give us all the latest on the local and Asian game. At 11.10 a chat with AFP designer and author John Saeki, about his new novel "The Tiger Hunters of Tai O". It was Hong Kong, 1954, and the British colony was not yet ready to hear about a Eurasian policeman having an affair with the police commissioner’s daughter. Hoorah! John will tell us the rest. After 12, more live music of a very special kind with the one and only JUNK! who returns with his bag of tricks. Join us on Facebook Live. At 12.40, we meet world famous Toastmaster (public speaker) Josephine Lee, who's here from the United States to give a class at the Baptist University tonight.
