【明報專訊】Think of the yet-to-be Shenzhen-Hong Kong high-speed rail - the joke is, it never can fully gather momentum before abruptly slowing down owing to the short distance between the cities. That is how a lot of office workers feel about the approaching Lunar New Year holidays. They have just recovered from the lazy December, only to be told that all work has to be forced to a halt. If you work with mainland counterparts, such a process starts at least a week in advance of CNY. Not very convenient, one must say.
