Every year, UT sends a class of Supply Chain Management students to Hong Kong for classes and field trips to China. This is the ninth time in a row that we had the chance to meet the students in a social activity.
The event started with a visit to the Hong Kong Heritage Museum to see the exhibits of “A History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum” which “reviews the common stories of human development in a new perspective”. What we did not consider was that the students finished an exam the day before and many went to Lan Kwai Fong after the exam for late night parties. (And don’t forget the drinking age in Hong Kong is lower than Texas’s!) Many students were unable to attend the visit.
Then we went to Maxim’s Palace Chinese Restaurant for dim sum lunch. Many more students were able to join with a few more hours of sleep. Somehow this is the first time in nine years where a few students had an issue with gluten, seafood, pork, or other food allergies, so some students enjoyed the conversation more than the food.
The event ended after the two-hour lunch and we finished things off with by taking a very nice group photo.
The Supply Chain Management class is once again coming to Hong Kong. In fact, they are already here! As in the last 8 years, we are going to meet them for a cultural event and then have lunch together.
We will first go to the Hong Kong Heritage Museum to see the exhibits borrowed from the British Museum. Titled “A History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum”, the exhibition “reviews the common stories of human development in a new perspective”. Details of the exhibition can be found here: https://www.heritagemuseum.gov.hk/en_US/web/hm/exhibitions/data/exid257.html
After the museum visit, we will have lunch in a Chinese restaurant near the Sha Tin MTR station. Details will be available once confirmed.
