Glad to see the process is coming along :-)
Could you please clarify the purpose of one of the mandatory questions in
" Hong Kong is an international gourmet paradise. Please use less than 200
words to describe your favourite dish of food."
Is this an English-language test? Or, is this to help determine the best
catering options? Or something else?
Peace, love & metadata
