In this week’s episode we talk money with Natalie Pringle and Saijal Patel. Think saving, spending and everything in between!

We’ve been your guide for all things Hong Kong for the last ten years, and to celebrate, we’ve decided to take the leap into the brave new world of podcasting!

If cash is king, is your credit card the queen or that dirty little secret you’re keeping on the side? We know that in Hong kong you need more than a dollar to get by, so that’s why this week we asked two exceptional women, Natalie and Saijal, to talk all things saving, spending and, our personal favourite, spreadsheets!

@ritualscosmeticshk is making its debut in the ifc mall (Unit 1066, Podium Level 1) this Friday, 20 September. For those of you who don’t know this Sassy-approved Dutch brand - it’s time to put it firmly on your radar.  Its products are designed to make us slow down and indulge in some self-care and mindfulness, which is something we can’t argue with. The first 500 people in line at the store at 4pm that day will get a goody bag worth at least $280. We’ll race you there!⁠
