王力宏

Last but not least。。。

我爱王力宏也喜欢听他的歌!我一次听王力宏 “龙的传人” 的歌就意识到听音乐的重要性。 这个歌讨论一个很重要的话题:中国人跟龙有什么关系。 很多中国人用龙来代表他们又古老又特别的文化,比方说中国人也叫自己龙的传人。我希望我能鼓励你们学习中国的文化建立在听音乐的基础上。

Behind the Scenes…香港電台

Behind the Scenes...香港電台

Next we went to Radio Television Hong Kong, one of the most popular public broadcasting organizations in Hong Kong. It was really interesting to capture behind the scenes footage of how this particular station operated. Ariel, Allegra and I exchanged dialogue about music with RTHK’s advanced technology and equipment, but off-air.

My Checklist

My Checklist

So… before I came to Hong Kong, one of my friends from Hong Kong gave me a list of places that I NEEDED to visit before I came back to the States. I have a 66.7% grade. 哈哈 I can do better!

Independent Commission Against Corruption

Independent Commission Against Corruption

Our next company visit included the Independent Commission Against Corruption of Hong Kong. Also known as ICAC, this non-govermental agency was established in 1974. Since inception, this organization under the direction of the Chief Executive of Hong Kong, Leung Chun-ying has reportedly decreased corruption dramatically. ICAC also recruits students from local universities to encourage anti-corruption. It was a pleasure meeting top officers and student ambassadors within the Community Relations Department!

At Times Square, Causeway Bay Station, a random Chinese elderly man wanted us to speak with him in English. On his paper, we wrote, “Today, I spoke to Mr. Hui. That’s me. I am very happy.” However, whenever we tried to speak Mandarin with him, he responded, “不讲话, 不讲话.” (Translation: Let’s not speak it -referring to Mandarin)

Scenic View from Victoria Peak
Allegra, Ariel and I rode the tram to the top of Victoria Peak. We reached the Peak by sunset and the skyscrapers at night were beautiful. According to one of our sponsors, Hong Kong has three times the amount of high-rise buildings in downtown New York City.

I was so happy to receive a personalized dedication of the book entitled, “Paper Tigress,” written by Rachel Cartland (sitting on the far right), a former Hong Kong Civil servant from 1972 to 2006.
