Episode 74: Expat Life

Joy Tsien Koo speaks to us about life as a 50 something expat woman living in Hong Kong. She gives us an insight into some of the highs and lows of expat living. She discusses parenting, educating her children and helping them through dealing with mental health issues as teenagers. We discuss some of the pressures that couples can face when living the fast paced, glamorous Hong Kong lifestyle. She explores how it feels to have her children fly the nest and then having to reevaluate her own purpose and direction in life. We discuss many interesting topics, including affairs, aging and what’s most important as we gain more life experience. Joy shares her wisdom about how important it is to be happy in our own skin.
