Howzit - South Africanism for hello, how are you, good morning.
Despite being a contraction of how is it, Howzit is almost exclusively a greeting, and seldom a question.
Howzit-HongKong is a website about living in Asia's world city.
Moreover, it is about South Africans who call Hong Kong home or home-from-home.
Howzit-HongKong.com is managed by Mike Jansen, a resident in Asia for the last 11 years.
The site attempts to cover events happening in the South African community in the SAR as well as sports and cultural events that feature our compatriots from back home. Major local events such as the yearly Hong Kong Rugby Sevens, Cricket Sixes, HK Golf Open as well as the Lunar New Year Parade are well covered.
On the business front Vinexpo Asia Pacific the region's biggest wine & spirits fair as well as South African Tourism events feauture prominently on our radar, as do most major exhibitions that feature our fair country.
If you are a visitor to Hong Kong or planning to move here in the future, Howzit-HongKong.com is a wealth of information.
