beautiful people society
it's quite bold refer to our life in hong kong as the beautiful people society. bill was the author of the "bps" reference.   after attending one of our roof top parties, he told tricia (who was still at hbs at that time) that it was another one of the beautiful people society gathering.  we got a big kick of out that.

the objective of this page is to track the lives of the friends we've made while living in hong kong. as we started to list our friends (in random order..) we are reminded how "beautiful" our friends are  both inside and out. they have enriched our lives and made our memories of hong kong so much more beautiful.
