As many of you know, I have been travelling quite a lot in 2005 due to a mid life crisis 10 years too early ;)

China has kinda caught my eye and I am headed there 1st September 2005 for an intial 6 month reconnaissance mission.

I have made a post in the Commercial Exchange forum for those interested in what I'll be upto: [webmasterworld.com...]

On another note, if you are based in China or just passing through, please do feel free to make contact via email and I'd be glad to hook up for Coffee or Chinese Tea.

A special thanks to all the Chinese members of this forum who over the last year have been very helpful and hospitable on my various trips to China.

Not forgetting Bill, Woz and Brett Tabke for their continued support and having to listen to hours of me babbling on about the explosion of the www in China.

I am still around as a member folks, just posting a lot less/more on China ...

remember I am open to any and all ideas when it comes to "Internet" and "China"

Shak,

Knowing how instrumental you were in helping us to open our doors for business in Hong Kong I can only thank you for your support over here and wish you all the best for over there.

It's a small world now, so although you will be 6000 miles away it will be almost like you will still be in Barking.

Timing is right and I am sure in years to come people will look back and say what was the tipping point for e-commerce in China........ the arrival of Shak!

Good luck matey.

Shak,

I am a very little earlier than you. I have settle down my office in China. China DOES make me very excited. Just image that I have a few people who work for me from 8:00AM till 11:00PM, and they are good enough for many tasks. In Europe, I need to put a gun on someone's head if I want him to work over time.

I am traveling in Europe for meeting now, I will be back to China in the middle of Sep. I hope I could meet you in Shanghai and drink a Chinese tea somewhere.

Shak, in addition to the respect I have for your experience in the search industry, I think you have an dead-on intuition for the pulse of search engine marketing and where it's going. It's been a pleasure any time we've traded views, and I give your opinions a lot of weight.

If you pass near the GooglePlex on your way from the UK to China, look me up. I'd love to talk SEM with you over lunch sometime. :)

Hope the relocation goes well!

Knock em dead m8!;)

I’ve no doubt that you will have a great time – the Chinese people are really lovely people the majority might be poor but they have old fashioned values and really do look after people… I used to work with the Honk Kong Arts Festival they never cease to surprise, enjoy your time there. BTW do not expect originality ;) That is what you do :0

BTW can I have your number plate :))))))

Wish you the best to your success in China. China market is very promising and I'm sure you are making the wise decision.

I'm currently expanding my site network to China and hooking up with some of my Chinese's friends.

Hopefully, things go well and I can see some of you guys sometimes overthere.

This new year I'm opening an office in Vietnam so if anyone going there, we can hang around.

It's a big move Shak - good luck to you. I came out to Russia a year ago myself so I know what it's like. Being the only foreigner in a region the size of France, you often get those 'what are you doing here' questions.

By the way, get some comments enabled on your blog, it's a good read!
