Good morning. Our first stop on today's Morning Brew is Vietnam, for a little 'Bureau Chief Extra'. It's Ho Chi Minh's birthday today (1890), and who better to fill us in on what's going on there today, than Neil Runcieman. Join him on Facebook live. After 11 our vet Dr. David Gething will be with us for this week's house call. Today we have cats fighting, then not, then fighting again, then being best mates, despite the odd bit of blood between friends. He loves answering your real-time questions, so do get in touch. A couple of months ago we found out about a brilliant competition for children, which is all about writing a script for a video game. It’s called ‘From Player To Page’, and organiser Simon Engerer will be back at 11.40 to tell you how it's all going. At 12.10, a new era in MB relations begins, as for the first time we'll catch up with Chef Neil Tomes, live from his new home... Singapore.
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.
