Fuwa of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games

Fuwa Beijing OLympic Games
The official mascots of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games are five lovely Fuwa which are blue, black, red, yellow and green in colour. These five colours represent the five rings of the Olympic Games.
The names of the Fuwa are Beibei, Jingjing, Huanhuan, Yingying and Nini. When put their names together, it forms a phrase "北京欢迎你" which means "Welcome to Beijing".
The mission of the Fuwa is to promote friendship, peace, positive attitude and the loving of natural environment to all children of the world.

I have only three Fuwa, namely Jingjing, Huanhuan and Yingying. My son bought them when he visited China during last year summer holidays. Perhaps he had given the other two Fuwa to his friends.

One World One Dream

Beijing OlympicThe long awaited Beijing 2008 Olympic Games finally had started.
I leaned on the easy chair to watch the live broadcast of the open ceremony of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games at 8.30 pm August 8.
The fireworks that brightened Beijing night sky had widened the vision of the world and strengthened the relationship of mankind.
Beijing 2008 Olympic Games is not only the glory of the Chinese but also the beginning of the "One World One Dream".
Hopefully the Olympic spirit will exist forever to achieve a peaceful and harmony world.

The Pearl Of The Orient : Hong Kong

Hong KongI went to Hong Kong with my family in December 2001. This was the first time that I went abroad by plane. This trip cost me around 10 thousands RM but I brought back a sweet memory after returning from Hong Kong. My family and I really enjoyed the trip to Hong Kong.

Hong Kong was reputed as The Pearl Of The Orient. It was a British colonial since 1842 after the signing of the Treaty Of Nanjing.

Hong Kong had been returned to China in 1997. Before the transfer of sovereignty, the residents of Hong Kong worried about their future. The government of China reassured them by promising to maintain the status quo.

Today, the charming Hong Kong still remain the same as before. You can sing and dance as usual. You even can bet on horse races as you like.

This article is the preface of my Hong Kong trip. I will write about all the places in Hong Kong that I had visited one by one.
