About Me

I am a happy girl that travel across Hong Kong, Singapore, and Shanghai for my work. Maybe half a year at Singapore, half a year at China with my family. I write about my life, what I see, funny photos and vidoes.

In Hongdeng Village, one of the poorest villages in the Guangxi Autonomous Region, 100 children wait patiently for their school to be completed. The school, a timber structure built by a charitable organisation in the traditional "lao Zu" style, lacks a roof, desks, chairs and blackboards. Meanwhile, the children have to trek 6 hours every day to a neighbouring village for school.

The project, called "A School to Learn" was initiated by a group of Hong Kong architecture students and professionals in 2006. Despite many setbacks, including floods, which swept away the school's foundations, the structure is nearly completed. For more information on the project: http://www.schooltolearn.com/

Singapore Association (HK) have organised a Boat Trip to help raise funds for the final leg of the project. The simple truth is that it does not cost much to improve the children's situation. Examples of the cost of the materials are as follows: 100 sets of students' desks and chairs (RMB 9,000), 5 sets of blackboards (RMB 2,500) and books and stationery (RMB 3,500). While helping the children, you can Fish (Bait and Rod provided), Swim and Relax on the boat.

You can support "A School to Learn" through the Boat Trip - funds raised will be donated to the project.
