Of Armenian descent, Sir Khatchik Paul Chater was a very successful businessman who helped shape Hong Kong in its early days. Known as the “Father of Hong Kong”, there are numerous memorials in HK named after him like "Chater Park", "Chater Road", "Chater Street", etc.

This is how amazing Armenian history is. They have gone to all corners of the world and contributed to the societies they live in such as Singapore, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong, and Japan.

Have you been to Armenia lately? I think we're doing fairly even though we have yet much to do in terms of political infrastructure and corruption. ;)

Absolutely. That's why the Turks are increasing their pressure. They know what will happen if we get a real chance to move forward.

And perhaps the horrors they unleash on us draws us to be more united. So that our priorities are the first things we're concerned with.
