Weekly Greeting

The 53rd Friendly Greeting From Shirley, China, Sun, Sep 3, 2006

How are you? Have you had a good week? I do hope you are well and have a relaxed and easy weekend.

The biggest funny thing this week is that I have been drinking juice in stead of water. Do you know why? Last Sunday, our company organized employees to have a healthy checking. The hospital required women to drink water before an ultrasonic wave checking. After being in the line for about a half hour, finally it is my turn (people asked me to be ahead, but I thought that I should be in the line as the others), the doctor said that I did not drink water enough, so, I had to drink again. Wow, my God, I had drunk one of bottle water already, no way, I went to the dining room of the health checkup center to drink about 12 little cups of water. Since then, I was sick as soon as I saw water... :-)

Every year,our company offers all employees a healthy checking free. Also, the company offers me the checking projects more than the others as an expert and a company manager. Except the normal checking projects, I was phlebotomized 3 tubes of blood, taken some photos on my neck bone, chest, the prevent checking of cancers, the checking of brain …When I accepted the especial checking projects, I did feel warm and be touched. I am just a common employee and I just do the work that I should do in my professional field. The company has given me many special cares for..

I remember, in 2003, when Sars was in China, every one was nervous to be infected and I just moved into a new office in the new company ? our original company was combined with another. The condition was not good as I had had and there was no a window to make me to breathe the fresh air directly, its carpet sometimes made my nose allergy. When the general manager knew this, he asked the administration office to resolve the problem soon. Can you imagine? After a weekend, when I went to the office building on Monday, the director of the administration office led me into a new bigger office that was changed from a data room with windows of whole of a wall, also they changed the floor with wood, fixed 4 bookcabinets, two computers, a beautiful new air-condition, a drinking trough, sofas, wall paper and also some green plants… I was really touched, for the company was in the most difficult time then.

In our company, we think that people are our most important wealth, so, we care for all employees and try to do our best to help everyone to keep a good health. During the Sars was in China, our company started an especial restaurant and offered our employees a lunch free with four dishes and one soup to reduce the chance to infect the illness via eating outside of the company ? now our biggest shareholder has invested and have made the little restaurant to be a big, beautiful formal restaurant already and the company still keep offering us a lunch free. According to the law of Shenzhen, we also have bought two kinds of insurances for every formal employee, people will have a pension after we retire and enjoy the medicine insurance forever…

Does your company offer you any healthy checking? Does your company buy any medicine or pension insurance for you?

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 beAn 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...
