Billed as one of the most exciting voices in Australian Comedy, Becky Lucas joins us on the show after 11.30. Before that, it's rugby after 10 and Robbie McRobbie, big wig at Hong Kong Rugby Union will update us on the Asian Sevens, the Women's Premiership, and a throw forward to the Rugby World Cup which kicks off on Friday in Tokyo. After 11 we're off to the races with William Nader, Director of Racing at the Jockey Club - HKJC Racing. We round it all off with Paddington Bear! On Saturday 28th the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra are putting a great new concert for kids wrapped around Michael Bond's famous stories of the bear from Peru.

Welcome to Monday on Morning Brew. We begin this lovely dry new week with our rugby news from HK Rugby CEO Robbie McRobbie, who ain’t no hollaback girl. It’s less than a month until Hong Kong goes Sevens crazy, so we’ll find out the latest. After 11, we welcome back our friend and Sai Kung artist Helen Boyd. She’s curating a couple of exhibitions, and as always she’s supporting local artists to the max. At 12.10 our monthly catch-up with Canadian adventurer Markus Pukonen who's making his way around the world without the use of power. Today he's in Johor Bharu in Malaysia, preparing to kayak to Borneo. He's also fund raising and film making. (9:30am-1pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org )
