Weekly Greeting

Merry Christmas & Thank You as a Friend-- Shirley's 69th Greeting-- Sun, Dec 24, 2006

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It is so nice to have you there as a good friend and I really thank you for being with me and Shirley's World together in the past time and now.

At the special time, I do wish you, your family and friends to be happy, healthy and lucky. I do wish our world is full of the friendship and love, to get beautiful and peaceful more and more with our effort together in the coming year.

Along with the opening of China, Chinese are also celebrating Christmas. Santa Claus and Christmas trees can be seen everywhere! Within radius of 300 meters from my home, there are Wal-Mart, Mcdonald's, Seven-Eleven, within radius of 500 or 800 meters, there are the Shenzhen Art School, the Foreign Language School and one of the best elementary and middle school... So, you can imagine, the Christmas atmosphere has come here as same as you have felt on your side.

Anyway, instead of having a holiday for Christmas, the country offers all of Chinese a 3 day's holiday, some of units will have a holiday for 5 days, relying on the different financial ability.

This week, except working on the daily work, hold meetings or harmonize different parts, I am making some investigation for my second researching report. Also, I asked some departments to make the first group of our company's electric greeting cards as our gifts to our business partners and customers, to reduce the traditional paper cards and to improve our efficiency.

Some good news are: One of financial information innovation projects in our company has got the first class award by the Shenzhen Government and this is the second time that we got a reward by the city since 2005. We have also got a scientific and technology research found from the City Government. Our biggest shareholder has decided to give our company a special subsidy to admire and support us to work on publishing some of the most important information for the Chinese Securities Market, freely for many years.

Ha! What a lucky company it is and I am lucky and happy to work for it. Even though we are working very hard -- many of us have lost or have given up many personal things for our career -- a vice general manager, who is only 43 years old was rescued in the hospital on Monday and most of managers have given up our yearly holiday for one or two weeks (according to different qualifications) with salary. I am one of them. No one forces us and not any redeeming. We chose it willingly. I could not really open my mouth to ask a holiday to see my son abroad after I knew the vice general manger has been in the hospital and the company is so busy at the end of the year.

How are you? Do you have any holiday of Christmas or New Year? I do hope that you are enjoying your holiday or work, have a happy weekend.

I am just a learner on art, music, English and the work on the web site in my free time. Anyway, I would really like to do a little bit things with what I have learned to make this little web site to be An Electronic Bridge Of Culture Exchange, Friendship and Language Learning. During the process to help the others and to improve myself.

I do appreciate your understanding, directions and supports. I do hope to get your great help continuously now and in the coming time...
