... not about his speech but the language he used... he spoke in Cantonese...!
Once upon a time when I was with Rotary, English was the official language because Rotary is such an international family. There are Chinese people, Indian people, English people, Japanese people... and to be inclusive and make sure everyone understands, English was used at most of the major events .
Somehow grateful to see Rotary now goes Chinese. Indeed Hong Kong is a Chinese city and I prefer mother tongue to any other foreign language.
